The Wolf has always been my favourite animal and the animal who I have always wished to be.  I don't like being human and being forced to live in a house and to be addicted to these disgusting processed foods, and part of a race that does nothing but destroy nature.  I want to be free and wild in the forest, to run on four paws like I was meant to run, to live the life of the Wolf in all it's ways, so loving and playful and graceful and majestic, it would be a perfect life.  I love how they act and how they live and how they mate for life.

I felt it fit with trying to switch to a raw paleo diet, for I have always wanted to eat raw meat like Wolves yet I was always afraid, but this forum liberated me of that fear.  I have no problems with being honest and sharing my real name as well, I love both my first and middle names and would gladly tell them if anyone wanted to know, but I felt going with the name of Wolf related more to who I am than would my human name.

But if Wolf had been taken, then I might have gone with the name Dragon, the only creature I would want to be more than I want to be a Wolf, though the Wolf personality still appeals to me more.  A Dragon's body with a Wolf's mentality!  And if Dragon had been taken as well, then I would have probably gone with my name.

I've always thought low-carb would be a better diet for me because if I don't eat very much fats then I tend to really crave them like crazy and feel hungry all the time, and then I'm tempted to eat more cooked food as well.. I do like eating a little bit of carbs too, though, but I usually satisfy those craving with raw honey or berries or other fruits.. but I always crave fats and proteins a lot more, and if I eat high carb I just feel like I'm starving. 

but I have terrible terrible acne problems that I have been trying to get rid of my whole life.. I switched to a raw diet about 2 years ago, though I haven't always been 100% all the time, and it greatly helped my acne situation, I still have yet to fully get rid of my acne.  It's still all over my face and a little on my neck, shoulders, back, and chest.  I don't always eat 100% raw but even when I do, I still break out all the time, and I've never known why.  All I want to do is get rid of my acne.

The site you linked talked about acne and other skin problems being caused by hypothyroidism though, and I'm now wondering if that's my problem.  I do still eat carbs everyday, though mostly in the form of honey and honey mixed with bee pollen.. but I'll check out this thyroid thing more, thanks.

what about soaked/sprouted chia seeds?

I was just going to make a thread on Aloe Vera because I just recently got an aloe vera plant from my uncle, so now I have my own aloe vera plant.  My uncle is very much into eating naturally and organically and has a whole bunch of stuff he grows himself in his backyard including chickens for eggs which are really good, so I'm sure he grew my aloe vera plant on good soil.

I was just wondering if the aloe vera was safe to eat completely raw though, I wasn't sure lol, but I see a few people here have eaten it straight raw so I guess it is fine.. I haven't eaten any of my aloe vera yet, but I have been putting the gel on my face everyday hoping it will help heal my acne scars and wounds.  I don't know if it's the aloe vera, or the eggs I've been eating that I got from my uncle, or maybe both, but it seems to be helping a little.  I might try eating a little bit of the leaf next, though I don't know how well that will work out because I don't really like bitter things usually, and I don't want to eat a lot because my plant isn't very big either.

By the way, does anyone know the best way to raise aloe vera?  I'm pretty much just keeping it in my bathroom with my other plant and watering it randomly(only going to water it with bottled water, I don't trust tap water).. I don't know how to take care of plants, lol.

Not sure if my dad would allow us to raise a whole bunch of bugs too though, even if we were raising them outside.. but what about the first six months or whatever?   I know my mom will want to feed them that special chemical-filled stuff at the beginning, is there any way to avoid it?

Out in the sun would actually be perfectly fine with my dad, my only problem is I don't want flies getting on it and laying eggs in my meat and end up with maggot-filled jerky.  Not that I think it would be unhealthy, but I'm just too queasy to eat bugs of any kind, and the thought of flies having landed on it and laid their eggs on it makes me too queasy to eat it.  That's also the whole reason I stopped eating dates, even though I find them delicious and addictive, but I found out that most of the ones I was eating had worms with worm eggs in the middle and it made feel sick and then I couldn't eat them anymore.

My food doesn't come out recognizable at all unless there's seeds from the fruits I eat, which are the only thing you would call recognizable.  The seeds are what help me tell how fast things go through, otherwise I can only try to recognize things by colour.

I have been trying to be in the sun a lot more, too, my car is convertible and now that it's summer I've taken the top off so now I get sun on my face whenever I drive.  I kind of hate vegetables, so I haven't eaten any green/leafy stuff, and especially not any cooked roots.. the only edible cooked root I can even think of is potatoes.  I don't really eat low carb because I do eat fruit and honey too, and I drink raw milk and eat raw cheese.  It's just difficult because the stuff is so expensive that I can't really afford to buy enough to fatten up on, which is one of the reasons I want my own chickens too, so I can have good high quality eggs to eat everyday for a good source of raw animal proteins and fats.

As far as cuts of meat go, I'm really picky with the meat I like the taste of, and I also don't have a lot of choice.  There's no farms anywhere near close enough to me to drive to once a week to get my meat from, I've tried looking on eatwild and everything.  The meat I was talking about going brown and tasting bad was not from trader joe's at all.

I'm pretty sure my dad wouldn't let me buy my own fridge to keep in my room, we already have two fridges, and another, even small one, would probably take up too much electricity.  My dad also does not want me eating in my room, and wants no food in my room (even though I always eat and have food in my room anyways) but he definitely would not let me have a fridge in my room. 

I am trying to tell both my parent as often as I can about eating better, only my Mom is more receptive of the things I tell her (except in some matters of raw vs cooked) but the problem is that she has no extra money to buy organic or grass-fed or anything like that.. she can only buy what she can afford, and commercial food is a lot less expensive.  My Dad just doesn't care too much, even if I were to convince him of what is healthy and what isn't he doesn't even care about eating healthy and always says how he's just going to die someday anyways, and he doesn't want to be old and live to be 100 years old or anything like that.

I might try meditation, though I don't even really know how, and the one type of meditation I looked into could only be taught if you paid large sums of money, and I couldn't really find any really good free instruction, so I gave up.. and I don't remember what it was called, either.  but I might try looking into just meditation altogether.

Yes, my Mom and me are adults -- The thing is, my parents have been divorced since I was 7 years old, they are not back together but they are good friends, and through great misfortune my Mom has lost her company and all her money and her house, she had no where else to go and no where to live, and my Dad was gracious enough to let my Mom move in with us.  This house, every last penny put into this house has been only my Dad's money, the house is completely his and his alone, and I do not even pay rent because I need the money to buy my food, I don't know the exact situation with my Mom but I think she pays a much lower rent than my Dad would have liked to be paid to pay for the extra electricity and water and bills like that.  But all the money put into the house itself has been paid by my Dad so this house is his, and he has every say in what goes on in it, no matter of "vote" because we are both only here because he lets us be here.

My mom and me had raised mealworms before my mom lost her house, we had them for a good many years, too, and they just thrived.  My mom also says you can lay things out on the ground that will collect bugs under them, then just lift it up and let the chickens go for it.

What kind of bugs do you raise for chickens?

Health / Re: Raw Meat Caused Nausea?
« on: May 27, 2012, 04:04:42 pm »
They live too far away for me to waste the money on gas driving there once a week or two weeks to collect my eggs, which would also be a bit old by then.. though I know eggs last a long time at room temperature, I still want to find out how good they are fresh and having never been refrigerated.  Plus I don't really know exactly what my aunt and my uncle are feeding their chickens, though I know they feed them as much bugs as possible, but other than that I think the diet is mostly grains and stuff.  I'd still rather have my own chickens.

But if worst comes to worst, and my dad won't let us have chickens or anything, then I could always fall back to getting eggs from my aunt and/or my uncle when I can, since they're still a million times better than any other eggs.  I just wanted my own so that I could add a good source of eggs to my diet everyday.. especially since I have such trouble with meat and I need a good source of raw animal protein and fat.

I've never wanted to sleep with my head elevated, I hate even sleeping with a pillow and sleep flat on my bed.. but I know I -have- noticed that when I fell asleep in class in high school (when I still ate SAD, plenty of school pizza) while sitting up in my seat with my head on the desk, I got really really good sleep then.  It was a really weird sleep to, it was so extremely light that I could still hear everything that was going on around me even though I was asleep.  And even if I got only a few minutes of sleep like that, I still felt really refreshed afterwards.

So I've wondered if maybe sleeping while sitting up is better than laying down, though I've never actually been able to fall asleep at night while sitting up.  The only other way I've thought of sleeping is the way described in "Never Cry Wolf" which the guy observed Wolves to sleep in a particular way that they get up every few minutes, walk in a circle and then lay back down and sleep for a few minutes, before getting up again, and just continuing like that the whole time.  He said it was an amazingly wonderful way to sleep and that he felt a lot more refreshed after far less sleep than sleeping like a log.  I wanted to try that too, but was never successful mostly because I do enjoy just sleeping like a log most of the time. 

Never really thought of elevating my head though, and usually preferred having my head lowered and feet elevated, but after reading this maybe I'll make more of an effort to keep my upper body more elevated so that I don't get all those toxins staying.. I probably wouldn't be able to have an elevated bed so much though, because I can't sleep on my back, and i also like to switch which side of the bed I lay my head at.

Thank you so much!  I'll probably send all of this info to my Mom too, because I know she really wants chickens too and will help me take care of them, and used to have chickens herself too, and all that stuff, and I want her to know what a perfect diet for chickens really is, because I'm sure she thinks they should be fed cornmeal and ground up grains and a bunch of other chemical filled stuff, though she does know bugs are good for them.

I have no idea how old the chickens will be when we get them, but I'll just assume that we're getting them as either eggs or hatchlings or at least very young, before they start laying at least, so it would be awesome if you could give info on raising them from the very beginning.. I know my mom kept telling me there is a special feed they have to be fed in the first six months, which I'm assuming is that deadly chemical filled stuff that miker was talking about.. which I would rather avoid having to start off my chickens on and it'd be nice to have a healthier alternative to feed them that I could give to my mom so that she doesn't make us feed them the worse stuff.. unless it's absolutely necessary.

But yeah.. I want to feed my chickens the best possible diet that I can afford, I may not be able to afford to feed them as good as you feed your chickens, especially because grass-fed meats and organs are difficult if not impossible to find and very expensive when you do find them.. though I might be able to order from slankers then if I say it's for chicken food, though it's pretty hot here and if the food ends up sitting on the front step for too long, it might not be raw anymore when someone finally gets home from work and brings it inside.

Well, it's been very difficult for me to find even the few amount of stores that sell grass-fed beef that I have found, so I have to make do with what I can, not a lot of choice.  The steaks I buy are from a different store, not trader joe's, but a store that is completely 100% organic and has a lot of local produce (called Goodwin's Organics). 

For now, I have some eggs that my aunt and my uncle gave to me from their home raised chickens, I'll just have to survive on those for protein for now, until I'm brave enough to try the meat again.  Hopefully before the meat goes bad.  As far as getting my own chickens, I first want to find out their ideal diet, convince my mom of what's good to feed them and what isn't, then convince my dad to allow us to have them in the backyard convince him that they aren't going to smell or anything like that.  Then I suppose I'll also have to pay to have a chicken coop built if I'm good enough at all the convincing, then get some chickens hopefully from my aunt or my uncle, that have parents that were home raised on a good diet and all that.. I'll reply in my other thread after this one, lol.

as for taking the meat out of the packaging and keeping it in a glass or ceramic tupperware, I seem to have a problem with eating meat that isn't completely fresh and red looking/tasting, it makes me gag and I don't like the taste and I can't eat it.. if I leave it in an open tupperware or even closed one, it will eventually turn brownish and start to get that taste that I don't like, and then I won't be able to eat it.. I hate it though, and I really wish I could eat aged meat or high meat, but I just can't seem to get passed that gag reflex if it isn't fresh-seeming.   :'(   I know it's bad to sit in the air-tight plastic though, and a lot of times the plastic will make the taste even worse than glass-aged, but it will keep that fresher seeming taste longer in the original package if it stays cold enough.

Things never sit in my stomach for long, my digestion has always been good even when I was eating SAD, and I'll usually see whatever I eat, uh.. come back out by the next day. 

The part about skinny girls and acne though, it's caused by too much testosterone and adrenaline and not enough estrogen?  What can I do to fix all that, just gain weight?  Or should I eat something with estrogen in it, like soy or something?  I've been avoiding soy like the plague because of the phytoestrogen it contains, and I don't want to mess up my hormones and cause even worse acne, so I've been trying to clear it by eating only clean and healthy foods, though I still break out all the time.. It hasn't been nearly as bad since I went 100% raw, but I still get it and I'm trying my hardest to get rid of it, and it is pretty much -the- main reason for eating this diet.. or at least for sticking to it as well as I have been.

What is the meditation for?  I've never really tried meditating before, I haven't really seen a need for it because I don't usually stress out easily.

As far as telling my dad about my diet, for one I don't see him often enough and dont have enough time to really be trying to brainwash him everyday, for two, he thinks he knows more than me and no matter what I tell him or read to him, he's only going to believe what he wants to believe and dismiss whatever I say because he knows I'm biased towards undercooked meat and all that.  I've already told him a lot too, but he doesn't really care much.

The only trader joe's meat I really ate was their 100% grass-fed ground beef, are you sure it's not so good?  And I just leave the meat in the package it comes in, I can't just put my meat out in the open because I live with my dad and he'll freak out over the smell and the fact that it's left out in the open, he'd say it's gone bad and throw it away.

And I'm not just emphasizing being "raw" because I was perfectly fine with eating the jerky which had been cooked.  But I felt it was not making me healthy or happy, so I eliminated it, and I am not going to eat cooked/heated milk or honey or fruit or grains or eggs.  Anything cooked doesn't really do well for me, I used to eat cooked eggs sometimes, but they didn't help the way raw eggs do.  I'd eat cooked veggies or rice sometimes, and those didn't help either.  I've done a LOT of experimenting and changing my diet around to find what works the best for me.

I didn't eat -just- before I went to bed, I said I ate a few hours before going to bed.  The meat had plenty of time to settle in my stomach, I rarely ever eat RIGHT before going to bed, though it usually doesn't bother me when I do, I hear it's not so good to do that so I try to make sure I don't eat right before sleeping and eat a few hours before sleeping.  I can't always eat the steak whenever I want to either, because like I said, I live with my dad and he will freak out if he sees me eating a raw steak or walking up to my room with a raw steak.. I used to eat those steaks all the time though and they were fine for me, whether I ate them immediately before going to bed or in the morning or in the middle of the day.  I'm just afraid to eat anymore right now because of how it made me sick this time.

My 2 Aunts and my Uncle all have gotten their own chickens they raise for eggs, and the other day I just got some eggs from some of them.  I had stopped eating eggs because they were not tasting good and making me gag and giving me a very slight stomach ache, but these eggs I got from my family have really rich, deep yellow yolks and don't taste bad or make me gag or give me a stomach ache so far.  I only ate one yesterday morning so far, but I'm going to eat one egg a day and see if I have any improvements or anything bad.  If it's all good, I'm thinking of trying to convince my Dad to let me and my Mom raise our own chickens in the backyard.

The only thing I'm worried about is feeding them a proper diet.  I think my aunts and uncle feed their chickens some sort of grain, maybe corn, (though only on the side, otherwise they mostly feed their chickens bugs) but with the way corn is nowadays, I don't really want to feed my chickens any corn or bad grain.

So if any of you have any good ideas of what I could feed my chickens that would make them the healthiest chickens and the healthiest eggs I could get, then please share.  I don't have any grass in the backyard, so they're going to be on dirt, but I will make sure to feed them as many bugs as possible.  My mom was saying something about feeding them on lay-mesh or something like that for the first six months, or some special feed for the first six months, because there's something specific they need, but I don't want to get any sort of store-bought chicken feed.  I want to make it myself so I can make -sure- there is nothing bad in their feed, no soy no pesticides or chemicals or whatever else might get into commercially processed chicken feed even if it's organic.  (such as chemicals used to clean the processing equipment)

So what exactly is the ideal diet for an egg-laying chicken raised from a hatchling?

I have been eating mostly raw for a while now, mostly as my new years resolution to eat only good, but I was having a problem with raw meat.  The grass-fed steaks I normally bought and ate were very expensive, so I switched to buying grass-fed ground beef from trader joe's which was a lot cheaper, but I can't eat the meat straight.. it doesn't taste very good to me and makes me gag and stuff, so I instead started making it into beef jerky using my dehydrator.  The only problem was that the dehydrator doesn't have a temperature control on it, and usually got up to 150 - 160 degrees F as far as I could tell, so the meat was coming out cooked and dried I suppose.  I ate it anyways though, and it tastes good to me like that and all, but then I started having problems where the meat was coming out weird and my thermometer started saying it was 180 degrees now, and it also seems like my health wasn't improving very well.

In any case, I stopped eating the cooked beef jerky and I bought some of the same grass-fed steaks that I used to eat again, and told myself I'd go 100% raw from then on, as long as I could.  I didn't eat any meat for about a week though, but I did eat 100% raw for that time.  Then I finally got one of the steaks out and tried to eat it. 

I ate about 4 ounces of raw steak a few hours before I went to sleep, and ate nothing after eating the steak.  The next morning I woke up feeling extremely nauseated and sick, but I hate puking so I tried to just go back to sleep and ignore it and let the nausea go away on its own.  I couldn't fall back asleep so I tried drinking some water to calm my stomach but it made no difference.  I still felt just as nauseated so I finally got up and went to the bathroom to throw up. 

If you don't want to read the details, you might want to skip this paragraph.  It took me a minute after getting up, but I finally started heaving, but at first nothing came up but air.  I rarely ever puke in my life, but the times I do, I usually don't struggle so much.  I wasn't so much dry heaving, because there was a bunch of air coming out, and it felt like i was puking out air rather than just heaving, though I thought it might be because I hadn't eaten much and my stomach must have been mostly empty.  Then I just forced it and finally puked out whatever was bothering my stomach, it didn't look like meat at all, it was mostly just yellowish green liquids, with what looked like it might have been a bit of brownish liquefied meat in it, but only a very little.

I have no idea why I would have gotten so sick after eating that meat though.  It's the same exact meat I had eaten many times raw before, and it never caused me to become nauseated like that.  Could it just have been because I wasn't used to eating any meat since I hadn't eaten any for a week before that, and only cook-dried before that?  Or maybe it was just a bad steak?  Or was it because it was sitting in my fridge for a week?    The fridge is super cold though.  I've never gotten sick from eating meat before, raw or cooked or old or whatever, so I have no idea why this happened. 

edit:  After that, I also just threw away the rest of the steak from the same package, I was too afraid to eat any of it in case it was a bad thing of meat.. but I still have 2 more pounds of steaks that I'm afraid to eat now, and that have been sitting there for about a week and a half by now.. I don't want it to go bad after spending all that money though.

I think most people on this site tend to be open about the fact that everyone is different.  Some here do better on eating only raw animal foods, while others do better adding in some plant foods too.  I haven't really felt like anyone here has told me what I myself would do better eating, other than of course eating more raw and more paleo.  Even so, I don't let that affect my own personal opinion, so I will still experiment with different foods to find out what works for me and what doesn't.

As for eggs, I find it's extremely difficult to actually find high quality eggs.  I was eating those organic, free-range, cage free eggs raw sometimes, but I stopped eating them because they started making me gag too much and I'd also get a bit of discomfort in my stomach afterwards.  But just a few days ago, I was able to get a few eggs from my aunt, and a few eggs from my uncle, who are both raising their own chickens in good conditions on a good diet.  Yesterday morning I tried eating(drinking?) one raw, and it didn't really make me gag and didn't give me a stomach ache or anything, in fact I felt really good yesterday.  The yolk on the egg was also a really rich, deep yellow, much darker than any of the ones I get from the store, so if someone had a bad reaction from eggs, it might just be because of the quality of the eggs.  Even though I got a bad reaction from the store-bought eggs, I didn't let that deter me from thinking that eggs are good for you.  I just knew that it was because of the quality of the eggs.

I sometimes buy fresh, wildcaught, never frozen ahi tuna/yellowfin tuna at fresh&easy, and I've eaten it and don't seem to have any parasites.. But I think most people don't really worry about parasites here, either we don't get them, or we have them but they don't affect us.

I've kind of started to live off beef jerky.  The grass-fed steaks are very expensive at $15 a pound, and I can only buy food once a week, and it's very hard for me to sneak eating raw meat so I can't even eat it everyday, and then they go bad sitting in their plastic package for a week, and I hate the taste of them after they've  been sitting in plastic for too long, and it's a big waste of  money to have to throw away a pound or two of meat every week.

So I buy the 100% grass-fed ground beef from trader joes, shape it into strips, and no longer add any salt or seasonings--just straight meat, and dehydrate it all.. then it's a lot easier to eat anytime, even at work, which is when i need food the most because working around a bunch of good-smelling pizza all day while hungry is not a good idea..

I like the taste of it without seasonings now, though i still can't eat it raw.  The only problem is that my dehydrator gets over 160 degrees F and I threw away the box I had jimmy-rigged to get the temperature lower because of threats from my dad that he was going to clean out my room because of all the funny smells.. he doesn't like the smell of the meat when I'm dehydrating it, but I don't know how to keep the smell contained more.  He knows i make jerky now though, but now i can't get the temperature under 160 degrees, maybe I should rig another box or something..

Health / Re: Is hand washing with soap necessary?
« on: February 20, 2012, 11:22:31 pm »
The back of my hands started getting really badly dry lately and I have stopped using soap on my hands at all whatsoever, even after the toilet.  I haven't gotten sick from eating anything directly after the bathroom, and if I'm at home I don't even wash with water.. however, I do use a large amount of toilet paper to prevent anything from getting on my hands, plus most of the time the toilet paper comes up clean anyways.  And after re-reading this thread and reading about the way soap can off-balance hormones, I don't think I ever want to use regular soap again.

When I do wash my hands, which is usually only at work, but very often at work, I just take my time washing my hands with water for a long time until my hands feel clean, and then also scrub them with paper towels afterwards, and they always feel clean.  I also only shower once a week now, sometimes twice, but more often only once a week.. which is the only time I ever use soap, though I only wash my hair with it, and I only use the sandlewood bar soap that I got from whole foods.  the ingredients for it are:

Saponified palm oil, water, fragrance, natural mineral pigments, butyrospermum parkii [shea butter], olea eurpaea [olive] fruit oil.

and that's it.  I haven't been able to find any soap with any less amount of chemicals or ingredients in it, though I haven't checked every single soap out there, but I'll check other soaps when this one runs out.  I also don't use tooth paste and will avoid using deodorant when I can, although when showering once a week only sometimes I have to, but I use some organic aluminum free stuff, and half the time I forget to use it anyways.  I've never had anyone complain to me about smell, but then I also don't stand too close/near to other people very often either.  My hair still does get very oily, but at work I am required to wear a hat so no one really sees it.  My lips have also been dry lately so I bought some organic lip balm, ingredients being: 

Organic safflower seed oil, organic beeswax, organic vanilla oil, organic lemon balm, organic comfrey, organic calendula mixed tocopherols, organic licorice root, organic lemon oil.

other than that, I avoid all chemicals like the plague, and I refuse to touch any of the sanitizers at my work.  I don't eat high meat though, so I don't have to worry about getting that smell off..

I know dairy isn't the best, but I don't really have any other good sources for raw fats.. there's only 2 stores I've been able to find selling grass-fed beef, and one is trader joe's 100% grass-fed ground beef, and another is an organics store that has 100% grass-fed steaks as well as ground beef, but they are all delivered to the store in vacuum sealed in plastic packaging and they don't have a butcher or anything, so I can't ask for any spare parts, so no extra fat.  I also don't like the taste of the ground beef much, so I end up not eating it, then it sits around in plastic for days and after that it just gets extremely nasty smelling and tasting.  I can't get anything delivered to my house either because I live with my dad, and he will freak out if he finds out I'm eating large quantities of pure fat, raw.  It also gets pretty hot here in southern california, and I'm pretty sure if a package ends up sitting on my front porch all day in the hot sun, it won't be raw anymore when I got home. Eggs also started making me feel sick, and tasting bad.  but I've found a good source of raw coconut butter that I like, so I'm trying to add that to my diet as well as eat more avocados, to get more fat in my diet, but the dairy helps the most and doesn't make me feel too bad.  Better than ending up eating half a pizza from my work when I'm craving fats like I always do when my diet is low on it.

I'd just like to know what causes those things to happen when I drink milk, and if anyone else gets those symptoms.

    How are you doing Wolf?

Heh, a late reply, but I'm doing alright.  Been having some trouble with my raw diet, especially around Christmas, where I was eating cooked foods sometimes.. but I'm trying to get back on 100% raw, and I've been doing pretty good the passed few weeks. Haven't had any chicken since the one time I tried it though, lol, I prefer beef.

Just one thing, milk has a lot of sugar, if you drink that much it's unlikely that you're in ketosis.

well yeah, I didn't really think it puts me in ketosis.  I just found it weird that the description I found was the same as when I drink milk.  but I have no idea what causes it.

I'm not sure where to post this, I don't know if health would have been better, but I picked this forum since the Primal Diet includes raw milk. 

When I drink a lot of raw milk (I usually tend to drink and entire half gallon in one day) I find that I end up having to pee a lot more often than usual, sometimes every like 20 to 30 minutes, when normally I only have to go a few times the entire day, and a lot of times my urine ends up having a greenish tinge to it.. and I don't know if this is normal or what causes it.

I have lately been reading about ketosis though, because I feel like my body much prefers to be in ketosis, or at least feels a lot better when I eat a lot of fat.. and I crave fats the most, even if I'm eating a lot of carbs.  So I searched google on how to tell if you're in ketosis without those strips, and among all the stinky breath and stinky urine posts I saw one person mention that you will have to pee a lot more and that it will have a greenish colour to it, although if that's what's causing me to have greenish urine then that would mean that drinking milk immediately puts me into ketosis.. which sounds off, but I don't know what else it could be..

so I was wondering if anyone else here who drinks raw milk has ever had these things happen to them as well?  or knows what's causing this?

I am horrified at the thought of people needing to have mobile phones to avoid being seen as spammers, as I am blissfully without one, just using a landline phone and PC for e-mails.

Well, I suppose that's why they also have a call verification option, so that you can use a landline as well.
