It doesn't have to be super small scale, but like maybe a quarter gallon to a half gallon of milk being used?  or is that super small scale?  lol.

I keep my milk in the fridge, I mean drinking milk raw isn't as big of a deal as eating meat raw.  Although I usually drink my milk in one day when I buy it, because I don't like how it tastes when it goes sour.. though maybe that's just the plastic taste?  They do come in plastic containers, but if I'm not keeping it in the fridge I try to drink it all as fast as I can.  I could easily transfer some to glass jars though, I have glass jars saved up.  I could also keep the quark in the fridge too, as long as it doesn't stink enough to make my dad notice and go through trying to find out what the smell is.

I tried some Kefir, Qephor brand made by the people who I get the raw milk from (Organic Pastures) and I don't really like it at all.  It just tastes like sour milk to me, I've never seen a Kefir that looked the consistency of yogurt.. Although I've looked and tried to find a raw yogurt, but I can't find any.  I've never really eaten the regular pasteurized yogurt either though, but I'm sure it tastes a heck of a lot better than Kefir. 

Are the Kefir grains needed to make quark?  I don't really want Kefir and I don't like Kefir, it's too sour for me.

I haven't had any problems with my stomach lately anymore.. so I think it's gone, whatever it was.  but I've been eating a lot healthier and more raw since then.

Quark would be awesome to learn how to make.  I just have to be careful with my food because my dad already says that my food stinks and I don't want him to find out I am eating raw, or I'll probably get kicked out.  So I would probably have to make the quark in my room and bathroom instead of in the kitchen.  Although I'm sure raw dairy would be more acceptable to him than raw meat and eggs, so I dunno.  if you really don't mind explaining how to make it, I'd love to learn how. 

I don't have much problems with bowel movements though, except that I think some of my fruits don't quite fully digest.  Or either the red stuff that comes out is watermelon or meat.. but I don't think the apples I eat digest very well, either.  So I hope it is just watermelon.

I would think that a raw diet with plenty of meat or other animal foods would provide you with enough salts, even if lacking in blood.. although the blood would probably provide more.  I know however, that the raw beef bone marrow that I ate tasted salty to me, so I think there was salt in it.  Other meat parts probably have salt too..

Actually, just looked it up on nutritiondata, and it shows raw grass-fed beef strip steaks to contain 15mg of salt per ounce:

I think the times that I feel good when I fast is when my body resorts to burning it's own fat for fuel.  That's probably why most people who live on eating mostly raw animal fats probably have such high energy levels, because they are burning the animal fat they eat and it's about the same as burning your own fat.
I'm really skinny though, so I don't really have much reserves of fat to be burning by fasting.. although I feel like it would be best to burn off all the bad fat I had gained from my SAD days and instead try to build up fat from eating a healthy raw diet instead.. not that I had much fat from eating SAD, but still had some stores of fat in places.  I think I have burned most of it away a couple times not, it's just difficult to build up fat on a healthy diet.
As far as burning fat and gaining fat, it's probably best to build up all your fat during the summer and spring times, to store for winter and fall like most animals do.

Wolf,

You are right about the sun being less bright when lower on the horizon. This is because the sunlight has to pass through more atmosphere at that angle and the atmosphere is a natural light filter. In the winter the sun is normally at a lower angle and that is why it is cooler. Since it is at a lower angle in the winter, the window of opportunity for gazing is increased. In other words, in the winter, the one hour window can be extended, because it is the sun's angle that is the important part.

Also at higher latitudes the window will be wider in the winter.

I know it becomes less intense because of the atmosphere itself, but there is such a dramatic shift once it reaches below a certain point.. and we have such a thick layer of smog around here most of the time, I think the smog might have something to do with it.
The sun goes from being brightly sharp stabbing pains in my eyes to a soft pulsating warm glow once it goes below a certain point.  I'm not used to having these sharp stabbing pains in my eyes when looking at the sun, because all my life before I was able to look directly at the sun without pain.  I don't know what changed.

I am fasting for Ramadan, which means for the entire month of August there is no drinking or eating from sunup to sundown.. so not even a drop of water as long as the sun is out.  Women are not allowed to fast while menstruating though, so for 5 days I did not fast, but otherwise this whole month I have not ate or drank anything during the day.  I seem to do fine as far as hunger goes, as long as I eat enough fat during the night, I don't much get hungry throughout the day.  The worst part is dehydration, but that's probably only because I work at domino's delivering pizza in a car with no a/c in the middle of August Summer in Southern California.. so I'm pretty much sweating the entire time I am at work, and I can get pretty dehydrated that way. 

Otherwise I don't see much benefit from the fasting from sun up to sun down.  I have fasted before where I consume nothing but water for a day or two, and sometimes I feel awesome and better than ever, and othertimes I feel weak and tired and hungry.  The energetic feeling is certainly worth it, but the tired and weak feeling is not.

one thing I have noticed about the sun, is that when I was younger and eating a SAD diet, I could look directly at the sun and it wouldn't hurt my eyes.  Now though, I don't know if it is because I have been staying indoors for too long, as I have gotten pretty pale and am not as tan nor do I tan as easily as I used to, or if it is because I have been eating raw, but now the sun hurts my eyes a lot more than it used to.  I have noticed also that my eyes have gotten lighter since eating raw, and I don't know if that has anything to do with it.  I've heard tell that lighter eyes have a harder time looking at the sun for some reason.. though my eyes are still brown and not THAT light.  But I do notice that once the sun reaches below a certain level, and is closer to the horizon, I can stare directly at it for as long as I want and it doesn't hurt my eyes at all.  I don't know if that might be because it dips below the layer of smog that we always have, and filters the light enough to make it less painful to my eyes, though.

But I have been trying to sungaze a little whenever I can as a way to naturally improve my eyesight, because I have some pretty bad eyesight, and I don't want to have to wear glasses or contacts.  I was also hoping that sungazng might help me in fasting for Ramadan, but I don't feel like I have much less of an appetite than I would if I didn't sungaze.  I don't sungaze very properly though, the only time I have access to be able to stand on pure dirt with my bare feet is when the sun is quite high in the sky and difficult to stare at, and the only time I usually get to stare at the sun when it is low enough to be painless is when I'm driving in my car and there's no dirt and I'm wearing shoes anyways.  Although then at least I usually roll down my window and take off my glasses so that there is no glass between me and the sunlight. 

I don't really believe that it's possible to survive on sunlight either though, it might perhaps help with reducing appetite, but I don't see how it would be possible to eliminate food entirely just from staring at the sun.  Like I heard one person ask, why then do the starving kids in Africa, with access to so much sunlight, still starve to death?

I usually keep my shutters closed, but I did leave them open once and the sunlight ended up directly on my face and it did wake me up.  But that might only be because when I felt the sun on my face I realized I had left my window open and that I needed to get up and close it so as to not let in all the heat, because it gets way too hot for me if I leave my windows open during the day,

I see my family (uncle, aunt...etc. ) eats fried chicken or pizza or candies in front of him and he just looks at them but never asks. But at the same time if he is hungry and one of them eating a fresh fruit, he asks for that fresh fruit, not any cooked things. So, I guess he must be developing a sense. I never have any plans to put him those poisonous public schools. Probably Montesories or other type of schooling is good for him. He's now four. But planning to put him in school after five.

Even so, younger children are going to be much more obedient, especially with their parents around.  But once they get older, they start to question why, and when you're not around, and the only other authorative figures around all say it's okay, and all of his friends are doing it, and pressuring him to eat it too, he might cave in.  Although most likely he will find it nasty tasting and hate it, but cooked foods and especially junk foods and candies can be very addictive.

I feel the same way as you.  I do not want to lose my wits at any time for any reason, let alone a voluntary reason.  I have tried sips of alcohol only because of my parents, but no more than a sip so not enough to affect me, and only a couple times in my life.  Though I don't know how many time I may have taken nyquil which contains alcohol.  Not much though, because I rarely got sick, but I know at least once I drank it.

So I have never so much as felt a "buzz" from alcohol.  The worst I had ever done was smoke shisha/hookah for about 3 months during a.. time in my life when I didn't care much about anything.  But it was not something that causes you to loose your wits, only relaxes you, and is completely legal since it is just flavoured tobacco and I was over 18.  But I quit after a little while and never been back.  And I never smoked a cigarette, not that hookah is any better or worse, but I know that hookah is not addictive like cigarettes are.

I've seen many people who were drunk and/or high, and everytime I do it makes me glad that I don't do those things.

Welcome!
I didn't know any paleo forum or raw paleo diet. But out of desperation, and strong believe in rawsome food, I did this experience on my 2 yrs old boy 1st. I see the change within 2/3 days. Then I waited months and I saw how he improved infront of my eyes. My son taught me raw paleo. Then I tried myself and got the result. Now my husband is on raw animal diet for the past 12 months almost. I did not force my husband, but he saw the huge change on me and he decided to eat raw animal food by one night. Now we all eat raw animal at home and we are much more happier.

You tested out this diet, which is believed by most of the world to be one that would cause sickness unto death, upon your child first?
Why would you not test it out on yourself first to make sure it was safe before feeding something considered so deathly to your child?  I mean, it's a good thing that Raw Paleo is safe, but still, if the world was right that raw meat isn't safe, then you could have killed your child as a test suject..

Other than that, how are you going to deal with your child going to school, if he goes to a public school, and preventing him from eating any of the school food or candy that he will come across?  I know when I was in elementary school, teachers often gave candy as a reward for getting answers correct, and they sold pizza once a week.. once getting into middle and high school, then they sold pizza and soda every single day.  If all your friends and everyone else around you is eating it everyday, you're probably going to eat it too.  Although, I wonder if growing up on a raw diet would cause him to dislike the taste of cooked foods and junk foods and soda and candy?
Or will you not be sending him to public school?

Hot Topics / Re: Pure Sprouted Wheat Bread?
« on: August 19, 2011, 08:35:22 pm »
I sometimes eat Ezekiel low sodium sprouted whole wheat bread, very lightly toasted (like 10 seconds, just enough to warm it when it's fresh out of the fridge) and smothered in trader joe's unsalted organic peanut butter (which has no salt or oil, just pure peanuts), some low-quality raw honey, and raw cinnamon sprinkled on top as a treat.  It doesn't seem to affect me too badly, but I know it's not as good for me as my raw beef stuff, or even my raw fruits or my raw dairy.  But I know it's definitely better for me than other regular breads, because whenever I ate pizza at my work after I'd been eating raw for a while, it would make me feel bloated and sick and terrible.  I don't eat pizza from work anymore, but I can still eat the toast and feel fine.

Bread is best to be avoided altogether though, any bread. 

137
I eat a diet of mostly raw animal foods and fruit.  I seem to do fine when I don't eat any salt at all, although I usually include an ounce or two of raw cheese in my diet everyday, which is about impossible to find unsalted cheese.  However, last week, I did not buy any cheese, nor the week before that I don't think.. so I've gone a little while without salt, and still felt the same.  I also only drink Fiji water, no other water.  I bought some Himalayan Pink salt, The real food trading company brand, and the salt is pretty delicious, but I rarely eat it.  I have also noticed that my cheese often tastes overly salty to me.  I bought some cheese this week, but it is lightly salted raw cheese, and doesn't taste anywhere near as salty as the other cheese I normally get.  Otherwise, my diet lately has consisted mostly of grass-fed beef top sirloin steak, grass-fed beef liver, I had some grass-fed  beef bone marrow that lasted me about a week but now it's gone so I'm eating more dairy to make up for the fat, raw grass-fed whole milk, raw grass-fed butter, raw grass-fed cream, raw honey, organic dates, organic watermelon, organic strawberries, organic blueberries, and organic fuji apples.  I am also fasting for Ramadan, so for this entire month (other than for 5 days during my period) I have only eaten at night, and have not eaten from sun up to sun down.  And I usually break my fast at night with water and dates, then my other fruits.. and I eat my animal foods closer to sunrise.  So I suppose my salt intake is pretty low, and I think I would feel fine with cutting out any added salt altogether, which I have been trying to do this month for Ramadan.

That looks like a lot.
How many people ate that?

Lol, I ate it all myself.  That's a regular paper plate size though, and I can't always eat all of that at once, all the fiber will start to make me feel bloated.. I'll eat some, wait a while, then eat the rest.

I live in southern California where it's always hot, and I work at domino's delivering pizza in that heat all day in a car with no a/c, so I can get pretty dehydrated sometimes.  I crave juicy watery fruit a lot, especially the watermelon.. and especially during ramadan now, since I can't drink any water from dawn til dusk.. I usually break my fast with water and fruit.  I just bought some dates the other day though, so now I eat those first, too, with water.. I also have organic fiji apples, and a bunch of different raw honeys, including raw killer bee honey!

I can't help that I love fruit.  It is too delicious for me to force myself not to eat it..

This plate is full of organic fruits.  There is watermelon, mango, papaya, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, and cherries.. even if you can't see the mango or papaya much.  The papaya is the only thing that might not be organic, I forget if it is organic or not.. I think it isn't, but it is Caribbean Red Papaya that I found in trader joe's, very sweet and delicious, a better flavour I think than the orange papaya.

He's nuts to take his time thinking about it:

Family oriented
Young
Pretty
Idealistic
Virgin
Healthy raw paleo dieter...



I'm actually probably not as family oriented as he might like, though I would be more so for my own family if I am able to have one with him.  As for young, we are the same age, in fact he is actually younger than me by 3 months.. there are many other pretty girls, many of them prettier than me.  I don't know how idealistic I am.  I may be a virgin, but I have done other things with other men that he dislikes, which I understand because I hate that i have done it too, and he has not done anything with other women.  And I think eating raw meat might gross him out.  But I am not entirely sure.  In any case, he doesn't care much for healthy eating.

He is picky of what girls he likes though, but I am just as picky with what kind of guys I like, if not more so.  Especially since the only man I like is him.  But it is not so much an issue of compatibility as it is an issue of history..

From what I've read, now is a good age for you to get married. 23?
My sister got married at 23.  My mom got married at 22. 
Good time.

Yes, I am just hoping that my chosen mate will have me.  We have known each other a long time and have been through a lot, but I don't know exactly how it his he feels about me.  We have done things to hurt each other and I don't know if what I have done is too much for him to consider marrying me anymore.  I will find out eventually, and when I do, it will be the deciding factor of what I will do with my life.

I was able to visit a Whole Foods on the way home from the beach with my mom last Thursday.  I wish, I wish so much, that it was closer, that I could visit it every week, and buy all my grass-fed beef and cow parts from them.  Last week I bought grass-fed sirloin, grass-fed beef marrow, and grass-fed beef liver from them.

Liver I had tried previously, but I did not like the taste, and it was commercial grain-fed, non organic liver.  This grass-fed liver, I also do not really like the taste of.. although I can stand to swallow small pieces of it if I don't chew too much.  I'm not sure of how healthy the liver is though, for I've heard that it should be bright red, whereas this liver is a slightly muddy red, so perhaps it is not the healthiest liver.  I don't know if I would like liver from a perfectly healthy animal or not.

Marrow I had also tried previously, and it was also commercial grain-fed non organic cheap marrow that I tried, and I didn't like it.  It had a very nasty smell embedded into the bones and reeking into the marrow which made it taste nasty and gross.  This grass-fed marrow however, is absolutely delicious.. it tastes to me like butter and cream but without the dairy taste, a tad bit saltier I think from a bit of blood/juice in the marrow, and quite amazing.  I am amazed at the difference in taste from the cheap commercial marrow to this grass-fed marrow, and I wish WF was closer so that I could buy this marrow more often. 

My Birthday was on the 9th, and I allowed myself to indulge in whatever foods I wanted for that day.. My dad took me out to a japanese habachi restaurant  that night and I drank a shirley temple soda(sprite mixed with cherry juice), and ate miso soup, fried rice, rare cooked steak, raw sashimi of salmon, albacore, and ahi tuna(my fave sushi), and noodles.  Across the street was a Chocolate Factory, and I got from there a bunch of Chocolates to eat as well, including a chocolate brownie, oreo cookie bar, milk chocolate bar, and milk chocolate peanut butter cup.  They also brought me a small bit of vanilla ice cream and whipped cream at the restaurant for my birthday which I ate some of.  I still have leftover chocolates which I will finish off that bag tonight, with a bottle of raw milk, after the sun sets.  After that I am going to try to go fully raw, and trying to switch to mainly raw animal foods, while recently I have been mainly raw fruit.  Raw dairy will have to be my supplement of raw fat until and if I can return to whole foods again to buy more marrow and steak that hasn't had the fat trimmed off.  I still have some marrow leftover though.

I think a diet with raw grass-fed steak, liver, and marrow, supplemented with a couple raw egg yolks, raw butter when my marrow runs out, and a little bit of raw fruit and raw honey as a treat and for hydration since I am fasting for Ramadan while driving a hot car with no a/c for work.. I think this diet should be good, and I will try to keep to it during Ramadan.  I am also hoping that Ramadan can help regulate when I eat, so that I don't have to eat so often, since I heard it is better for carnivores to eat one big meal once a day rather than small meals throughout the day.

I haven't posted here for a while.. I want to post what I was going to say in another thread, but it was rather long winded and somewhat off-topic so I will post it here instead.

I am not Muslim.  I have always believed in God but I was raised Christian.  I was never exposed to Muslim ideas until more recently when I found out someone I have known for a long time was Muslim.  Even when Obama was being voted into office, and was being accused of being Muslim, I knew nothing of the religion, except that it was the religion that the terrorists promoted.  But now I have learned that Muslims believe in the same God that Christians believe in, and from what I have seen and learned, it seems to me that Muslims are far more devoted to God than most, if not all of the Christians that I know.  Reading about Islam I am now confused about what is true and what isn't.. so for this month of Ramadan I shall fast in the name of God, I will pray, and I will read the Bible and then the Quran to try to understand to the best of my ability, and to learn the truth.

Having been raised as a Christian woman in the modern USA, I was not raised to be very modest, especially by Islamic standards.  I was raised being told that according to the Bible one should not have sex before marriage, yet my mother was one of those who assumed that I would be like most and lose my virginity in the teenage years, and would tell me in the event of it to use protection and blah blah, never much telling me exclusively not to have sex, although saying I shouldn't.  I am grateful to the fact that I never lost my virginity however, but that had not as much to do with the way I was raised as my love for Wolves and that they mate for life.  Although I was sheltered more than most, I was not exposed to much adult content, and I covered my eyes during kissing scenes in movies until I was probably around 12.. maybe even up to 15 years old.. or at least, I would look away during kissing scenes, even if I didn't cover my eyes. 

I wish I had been raised more modestly though, that I should have been raised to cover myself more, and raised not to even desire to kiss a man before I am married to him.. for I went through a careless stage in my life and wasted my first kiss at the age of 19 to a man whom I do not love nor will probably ever see again, and I hate that I did.  Although I am still a virgin, I wish I would have saved my first kiss and other things as well, but at the time I did not think it was wrong, for I had not been raised to think so.  I was only raised to think that sex itself only was not to be done before marriage, but that everything else was okay.  I wish the world was more modest and pure, and that sex wasn't something so obligatory for men in modern times, because I only want to be with a man who is a virgin as well.  That pretty much cuts my choices down almost completely, especially the older I get.

You can talk about eating all the bugs you want, even maggots, I have nothing against bug eaters, it mostly just grosses me out to think of myself eating them.  Other people eating them won't gross me out so much, unless I would hve to watch someone eat a spider or spider-like bug, because I have a bad arachnophobia and that would just freak me out more than gross me out.  But otherwise doesn't bother me much unless to think only of myself eating them.

I'm sure bugs are probably a pretty healthy raw diet, if you can find bugs eating a natural diet rather than bugs which have feasted upon human waste such as rotting cooked foods and garbage.. although it would be interesting to see if anyone here would do an experiment of eating only raw bugs to see if it is sustainable for humans to live on insects alone, and how well they would feel on such a diet.
