Hot Topics / Best time to take vitamins/nutrient-dense foods?
« on: January 30, 2013, 01:14:54 am »
I lost my job and have no money so I can only buy my food with food stamps now, and grass-fed meats are too expensive for me to buy enough to eat only meat, and I also can't find any grass-fed fat or organs and you can't buy online with food stamps.. so with my current poor diet I've felt that I'm probably lacking in some nutrition, I haven't felt all that great and my teeth had been feeling like they are loose (though they don't move when I push on them) and my gums were sensitive, had been tired a lot and sleeping a lot but my sleep schedule was all messed up and stuff, and just overall wasn't feeling the greatest.

Now I've never been a fan of vitamins or supplements even when I was an ignorant SAD eater, I've always felt that you should get all the nutrition you need from the food you eat.  But with me being unable to afford all the food I need, (I'm underweight too so I need to be eating a lot more to gain some weight as well) I figure it might be a bit necessary to supplement my diet, so I bought a Garden of Life RAW multivitamin.  I also had some cod liver oil that I bought a long time ago, and a whole bunch of local bee pollen I bought a while ago too, and since I've heard that bee pollen is extremely nutrient dense with all the nutrients we need, I've mixed a whole bunch of it in with my raw honey so I can eat a little bit of that everyday too. 

My question just is, when is the best time for me to take these supplements and eat my bee pollen honey?  I know the body doesn't absorb the nutrients from things like vitamins as easily as it does from food, so I want to take them when it would be the best/easiest time for my body to absorb the most nutrition from the supplements as possible.  Instinctively, I've figured the best time to take them is on an empty stomach, so I started taking the GoL RAW multivitamin first thing in the morning, and I've been feeling a little better than I had been.  I just found my cod liver oil last night though, and also mixed my bee pollen with my honey last night, so I hadn't started those yet, but I'm just wondering if eating them all first thing in the morning is the best time to eat them, or if I should spread them out through the day, or should I only eat them after eating something else?  and if so, after eating what?  I've never really taken vitamins or supplements before so I don't really know how it all works or anything you're supposed to do or supposed to avoid if anything..

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Re: Your experience with DATES?
« on: January 19, 2013, 10:05:34 pm »
I know I should have figured it as a good thing that meant pesticides had not been overused on the fruit, which I did consider even as I was being grossed out by it, however that doesn't rule out freezing or heat treating seeing how in every single one of them the worms were always completely dead. 
And even though eating raw meat has never grossed me out in my life, it still grosses me out to even think of eating any sort of bugs!  -v

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Re: Your experience with DATES?
« on: January 17, 2013, 12:13:19 am »
oh man, when I first tried dates a couple ramadans ago, I was so addicted to them, they were absolutely delicious.. I could have ate them all day long.  I have no idea if they were steamed or frozen or glucose coated, I just know I got organic ones, and they might have been local too, but then I do live in california.. but then one day I started ripping the dates open to pull out the seeds before eating them and found that quite a few of them had a whole bunch of eggs stuck to the inside wall of them always with a dead worm.. and it made me feel so sick to my stomach to think of how many worms and worm eggs I must have eaten, I just couldn't eat them anymore, and I haven't ate any since.  I'm pretty sure I'll never be able to warm up to the idea of eating any sort of insects.

General Discussion / Genetic Roulette video

Genetic Roulette

Have you guys seen this video called Genetic Roulette?  It's all about GMOs from Monsanto, even though most of us don't eat any of that stuff anymore, but the main thing that scared me is that it said there's a possibility that the pesticide in the GMO corn could get into your gut and multiply in your gut flora, and then even if you stop eating all the GMO foods, your gut flora still produces it!!  This might also be a good video to show SAD eaters to at least convince them to stop eating most grains..

But how do I get this crap out of my system?

Amoung all the hype of many states petitioning to secede from the USA, there is also a petition to prevent GMOs!  Which was actually my idea, to create a petition right now since so many people are hyping about the states, for a law similar to Prop 37 which failed in California, to label all GMO foods as well as irradiated foods.  However, someone beat me to it, but created a petition to entirely get rid of GMOs.  I have signed it, and I am linking it here for those of you in the USA to sign as well to help prevent GMOs from being used and created anymore!

Thank you so much!  Any advertising is amazing, I really appreciate it!

Oh man - I wish I had skype so that you could draw me to use as my avatar here.

I've got to work on that. I'm just such a computer dunce.

That's such a great idea what you are doing!



The drawing on skype one is more for live tutorials on how to draw stuff where you can ask me to draw anything and I'll draw it right there while you watch me draw it!  But you don't need skype for the chibi drawing of yourself, if you like chibis.  I'm not really that good at drawing people though, unless it's anime-cartoon style and then usually only good at faces.  Chibis don't really require you to be good at drawing bodies which is why I'm doing those instead, they have more like powerpuff girl bodies lol.. with big heads and big pretty anime-eyes and hair but tiny little bodies.. like these http://www.google.com/search?num=10&hl=en&site=imghp&tbm=isch&source=hp&biw=1600&bih=809&q=chibi&oq=chibi&gs_l=img.3..0l10.1191.1796.0.2205.5.4.0.1.1.0.61.196.4.4.0...0.0...1ac.1.AfYMBqFNTSs

So, someone here recently linked me to fiverr as a way to make money!  Well it looked like it had a lot of potential so I signed right up.. So, I don't know about you guys, but if any of you know anyone who could use my services please tell them about me!

http://fiverr.com/cassjan

I can photoshop pictures to do a bit of retouching, realistically enhancing and fixing pictures, or add so much makeup to make up to make the person look like an anime character lol, but I thought that might be popular among younger people/anime fans.
I'm also an okay artist, and can draw people as chibis (more anime stuff) or do live tutorials and drawings through skype.
I'm also really good at math up to Algebra 1 and can do any math stuff up to algebra 1 or tutorial someone in math up to algebra 1 through skype!

That's pretty much all I have, so if any of you guys need or know someone who needs a photshop retoucher, live art tutorial, or math tutor, please link them to my fiverr!

Primal Diet / Re: No Water
« on: November 09, 2012, 07:55:03 am »
I haven't been drinking as much water as usual lately.  I only drink bottled water, Fiji brand.. I like the description on the bottle that the water is pumped from the aquifer straight into the bottle and so untouched by man until you open the bottle and drink it.. even if it is untrue, it is still the best tasting water to me.  I don't trust tap water at all, even if it is filtered.  I don't trust most bottled waters either, after hearing most are just tap water anyways.  But I tend to get headaches if I don't drink enough water.  I usually try to drink water first thing when I wake up, to hydrate myself before eating anything, and that's usually enough to prevent me from getting headaches.  I want to buy water in glass bottles though, but it's so expensive..

As for eggshells.. I did keep the eggshells from the eggs my aunt and uncle have given me from their home raised chickens, and crushed them up.  I don't trust any store bought egg shells, even organic or free range.. I think there was only one brand I ever bought that the eggs were still dirty, with clumps of dirt or poop still stuck to the eggs, but I think those chickens were fed a vegetarian diet which may or may not have included soy and certainly didn't have a high amount of bugs in the diet, so I figure they're probably nutritionally poor. 

I probably won't eat the eggshells myself though, since I drink large quantities of raw milk and consume a lot of raw dairy so I'm sure I'm already overdosing on calcium without consuming enough magnesium.  I mostly kept them because I was wanting to get my own chickens and I heard they need high amounts of calcium so I thought I might feed it to them.. but my dad won't let me get chickens.  I might feed it to my cat instead, since she doesn't get much bones to eat.

You slept with the radio on?

Yes, I always liked falling asleep to music or some sound, so I would always fall asleep to the radio, or a CD playing, or something.. when I was much younger my grandpa would play tapes of orca whales sounds when I went to sleep.. and my mom said she used to vacuum while I was sleeping in my crib.  I've never much liked falling asleep to silence and I've probably fallen asleep to sound more times in my life than I've fallen asleep to silence.  Might be part of the reason I've been such a heavy sleeper, though I sleep lighter  now that I eat so much healthier.

I used to fall asleep listening to the radio hoping to hear my favourite song before I fell asleep, but I would always fall asleep before hearing it.  Then I would randomly wake up in the middle of the night (which rarely ever happened to me, I never woke up in the middle of the night for anything, I was a very heavy sleeper) and wonder why I had woken up because it was unusual.  Then I would roll over and try to fall back asleep, and a few seconds later my favourite song that I had been hoping to hear all night would start to play on the radio.  This happened to me on more than one occasion.  That was back when I ate SAD though.

what are entheogens?  I'd also be interested in hearing about bird language and sensing energy patterns..

I've never even seen beef tongue for sale, let alone grass-fed, and it would be too expensive to ship/buy online, plus it can get pretty hot sometimes and anything left on my front step might not stay raw for long.

Rice would probably be fine, I mean I used to be able to tolerate any food but after eating raw I know eating anything like pizza or oven-baked sandwhiches from work made it feel like there was a rock in my stomach.. I think it was just the bread because I'd put the all other ingredients in a bowl without the bread and didn't get the rock in my stomach feeling after eating it.  I haven't really eaten rice lately though, I don't know if it would cause me problems.  I also don't know if it would cause me to break out more or not.. that's what I'm most worried about.  I have been craving pasta though, but I didn't want to eat wheat.. maybe rice pasta would be better?

I think I really might be able to use that website though, thank you very much for the link!

As for marrying someone.. I am true to my name of Wolf, and I am a virgin who is waiting for marriage, because I want to mate for life.  But I have also fallen in love with someone already and he is the only one I want to marry... It's rather complicated though, and I don't really want to get into that on here.

I did apply to one of the stores, but they said they aren't hiring.. another one said they weren't hiring, trader joe's straight up rejected my application, and I forgot to ask at another place because I haven't been there in a while since the other place is closer and cheaper.

I don't have any achievements to put on a resume.. I don't even know what to do to get these "achievements" to put on a resume.. there's nothing I could put on a resume that wouldn't already be on the application.. I should try out one of those employment centers, I forgot about those.. I've never been in one and I don't know how they work.  The only thing is that I really don't want to work at any food places because I will definitely be tempted to eat whatever food the place offers and it's most likely not going to be raw or paleo.

wolf, you are in california correct?  there has to be a farm somewhere close or at least like minded people who are eating good food. local harvest isnt the only source, many farms and ranches arent listed on there.  if you let me know where id do my best to find some kind of local source for you.  as far as the food stamps thing goes you probably wouldnt qualify if you arent paying rent.

Yes I am in southern cali, but I think I just happen to be in a bad spot.. an hour or two in like most directions and I'd be close to something okay, but there's like nothing by me... I mean one whole side from my house is just huge fields and fields of dead yellow grass and dirt with nothing but a big lake that is fenced off and no one's allowed in.  It's really hot here most of the time, so no grass is gonna (naturally) grow enough to feed any animals on a farm anywhere near here.  There's a couple good stores like 20 minutes away that I can go to, but they don't have any good selections of grass-fed meat.. usually small selection or out of stock, no butchers, all vacuum sealed in plastic, one store has it all frozen solid rock hard and it's all brown already.. they do have raw dairy though, and other raw stuff, organic stuff and all that.. non SAD stuff.  but it's all expensive..

Pay rent to your dad  ;)

I don't have a job and I'm saving my money to buy my foooood.. if I pay him rent then I'll have to eat the SAD food he buys.

yes Wolf - eggs from chickens that get to run in the grass and eat bugs in a large area are much, much better. They might never be quite as good as your aunt and uncles - but far superior to store bought usually.

Can you perhaps buy a few more chickens for relatives to keep so you can get eggs and take care of their chickens for them or do some odd jobs in exchange?

Well, my aunts and my uncle have their chickens in pretty small pens, and also do not have any grass in the pens.. they do feed their chickens lots of bugs, but not as their main feed and they feed them grains or something too, some organic stuff they buy somewhere.. They also live like an hour or so away, too far to be driving there daily to take care of any chickens, even once a week would be a bit much..

I suppose you've already checked this resource? :-

http://www.eatwild.com/products/index.html

yes I have, several times, that's how I know there's no farms near me..

food stamps.

How do I go about getting those?  And would it be affected by the fact that I live with my dad who makes decent enough money, and that I don't have to pay rent?

How about eggs? Those stay fresh a long time. Maybe you could do work on a farm in exchange for eggs and anything else they had that you would be able to eat - maybe a freshly killed chicken - they might even be willing to put you up for a couple of days at a time or you could tent it. If they butcher their own meat for their own consumption you could ask for the organs. It might be easier to find pastured chickens than grass-fed cows? Paying someone in extra eggs and milk for hard labor could be good for a farmer.  Do you have good energy? Are you strong? I think if I were in your situation that is what I would do........ hunt down a farm with kind people........ and apply for food stamps too. ;)

There aren't really any farms in the area, and the closest ones aren't going to be nice, family owned organic grass-fed farms.  I've also been tending to dislike the store-bought eggs, whereas the eggs I can sometimes get from my aunt or uncle are absolutely delicious to eat raw.  But the store bought ones (even organic and cage free) were making me gag.  However, I did just find these eggs that look like they'll be good, from this uh.. http://thehappyegg.co.uk/  from them.  I googled them on my phone when I was in the store, and I saw a video of the chickens out dust bathing and there was grass, and read something about them getting to eat bugs, so I bought them, though I didn't find anything on what feed the chickens get, but if they get to roam and eat bugs I'm sure it's better than most the other eggs in the store and almost about as good as my aunt or uncle's eggs.

Health / Re: best animal fats for skin
« on: November 03, 2012, 03:01:17 am »
when I tried making beef jerky using the 100% grass fed ground beef from trader joes, I put the beef in my cheap dehydrator and I think the temperatures got up to 160º F, it was hard to get an accurate temperature reading and there was no temperature control on the device.. well anyways, it got pretty hot and a lot of the fat melted off and collected in the bottom of the dehydrator in liquid form, it was a yellow oily liquid and I did not want to waste it so I poured it into a glass jar.  once it cooled it is now the consistency of soft butter, whiteish in colour, and I smear that stuff on my skin whenever it feels dry.. I keep it in my bathroom, not refridgerated.  It's pretty oily, though it seems to absorb well and make my skin soft, even though I know it's heated but at least I know it's from grass-fed beef and not really processed other than for melting it off the ground beef in my dehydrator, and no chemicals. 

I also have my own aloe vera plant that I got from my uncle, who's all into organic and natural eating (though not raw, and little meat) and has his own chickens that he feeds bugs and garden he grows himself and stuff.  My cat kind of demolished it a bit, but I can still rip off the leafs and put the pure aloe vera gel on my skin.  I still get pretty bad acne on my face, but I think that's because I'm not really eating well enough, but putting those things on my skin doesn't seem to make it any worse.  I would also put raw grass-fed butter on my skin if I didn't have that ground beef melted fat, but my butter is expensive and that melted fat was cheap plus I'd rather eat the butter since it's raw.

Ordering from slankers is going to cost me like $15 in shipping fees unless I buy over $100 in orders which is a lot of money and a lot of meat, and take like 3 or 4 days to get to me.. and I also tend to have no appetite for meat unless it's super fresh, if it gets just a little brown I get repulsed by it for some reason now.. even though I used to actually prefer my ground beef  to be brown on the outside, now I can't even eat ground beef raw at all.  I'm also kinda iffy on frozen meat too.  Otherwise I have not been able to find any grass-fed farms or butchers near me anywhere, no matter how much searching I did by internet, or by driving around, or by searching on GPS.  I've been to a couple good places, but they're all at least an hour drive away, and I usually go shopping once a week to make sure my stuff is all fresh, and I can't be driving an hour out just to buy some grass-fed meat packaged in plastic from a place with no butcher and I wouldn't be able to get any fat even or organ meats, and that's the closest one.

I'll probably at least keep buying raw grass-fed butter every week so that I have one decent source of raw grass-fed animal fats, but I'm probably going to have to go with a higher intake of fruits and veggies that I can buy from the commercial grocery store that is right down the street from me.. but I don't know what kind of veggies to eat, since I was never big on eating veggies my entire life, and I definitely don't know which are good to eat raw or what.

I don't have a resume, I just fill out applications and a resume would just repeat all of the same exact info I'm already putting on the application, so I see no point in wasting paper making resumes too.  I only have a high school diploma, no college degree yet, and have done nothing extra that I could add to a resume.. no volunteer work, no special training or skills, nothing.  Just have had a couple of other minimum wage jobs which go on the app.  I only got one real interview which I though went real good but then they never called me back.

you might be able to get the fat trimmings for free from Whole Foods meat counter.  they often give those away to people who want them.

Too bad there's no whole foods anywhere near me!  I wish there was though, me and my mom stopped by one on our way home from a trip to the beach, and I got the most delicious bone marrow from there.. I've never been able to find any bone marrow that tastes anything like it did!  It was so delicious, I probably could replace all the dairy I consume with that bone marrow if only I could buy it everyday.  But I can't afford the gas to take a 2 hour drive one way trip all the way out there even once a week.    :'(

So, I lost my job a while ago though I had money saved up, so I was still trying to eat a good diet until I found a new job.. but so far no one is hiring me even after going to a few interviews and stuff, and I am starting to run out of money..

So I want to ask you guys if you know any good, cheap foods I can buy at a regular commercial grocery store that I can still eat raw and be healthy without spending a ton of money on meat.. I usually don't do well on a diet high in plant foods because I crave fat a LOT, and if I eat too much carbs I go crazy to eat some fatty foods, especially meat and dairy.  But I'm not going to be able to afford to keep buying a lot of meat, even commercial meat is still expensive, I don't want to eat grain-fed fat or organ meats, and raw dairy is super expensive.  Pasteurized dairy started tasting like plastic to me after trying raw dairy so I don't really want to buy pasteurized dairy either.  But any suggestions for foods that I could buy from a commercial grocery store that would still be healthy.. I don't know much about vegetables since I never really eat them, which ones can I even eat raw other than leafy stuff?  I usually hate leafy stuff like lettuce, spinach, kale and all that, I never really tried any root veggies other than regular potatoes.. though I liked cooked potatoes.  I don't know what to do, I'm used to eating mainly meat but I won't be able to affording eating as much and I don't know what else to eat..

I agree with Thoth.. I was going to say, if you guys write a book, the first things you should emphasize are that everyone is different, some people might do better on a pure carnivore diet while others do better on an omnivore diet, and say that they really need to listen to their own body more than what anyone else tells them, and that they'll probably need to experiment a lot with different foods to find out what is right for them.  And then stick to more of the "factual" things than the more opinionated things.. and everything would need to be backed up by research to be truly convincing.

Also, you can create a website separate from Wikipedia that just uses the same format as wikipedia.  There's lots of separate wikis for specific things like games, or like bulbapedia is a pokemon wiki, but they aren't part of wikipedia.  You could always make a rawpaleodietwiki.com using wiki format that RPDers can go to that isn't a part of wikipedia at all.

Oh yeah, the other problem with shipping is that I live in southern california where it's always hot all the time, and during summer, anything left on the doorstep of my house for more than like 5 minutes isn't gonna be raw anymore, lol.

It's starting to cool down finally though, if the shipping cost isn't too high I might order some fat and even meat from them, since it's less likely  it'll get cooked before reaching me.  Is their stuff packaged in plastic though?  that's another problem, especially with heat, plastic throws my appetite off raw meats and stuff especially if they get warmed/heated in plastic.

Furthermore it's a proven fact that plant fiber is not necessary for a healthy human gi tract. In many cases harsh plant fiber is even harmful.

Löwenherz

Oh hey, do you happen to have any links to any information about fiber being unnecessary or harmful?  I keep trying to tell people how fiber is unneeded, unnecessary, and might even be harmful, but I don't have any sort of scientific evidence to back myself up.. the only thing I've seen about it is this guy: What Is So Menacing About Fiber?  and he just -looks- like a quack and super fake, even I'm skeptical about what he has to say just based on how he looks and talks, even though I have the experience of me eating a very low fiber diet and yet having no problems with digestion and excretion.

Also, I've had my mom argue to me that fiber is actually good for people who eat a lot of junk (SAD diet) because it pushes all that junk they eat out of them, whereas I don't need fiber because I eat such a healthy diet that I don't need to push any junk out.. and I didn't have much of an argument against that.  My grandma who tries to eat healthy also said I need fiber to push the animal fat I eat out of my intestines, but I didn't have any sort of argument against that except for "No I don't!" which isn't going to convince anyone.  I need more scientific and convincing evidence to back me up on this..


Oh yeah, sounds really like a "super-food". Obviously, many, too many people were under this impression.

Be glad to live in the United States. Bison-fat is the non-plus-ultra, isn't it?

Löwenherz


what is a non-plus-ultra?

I've been eating only bison meat lately because grass-fed beef is nearly impossible to find near me, and the bison is easier to find and reliably get, but I'm pretty sure all the bison I eat is grain-fed because none of them say anywhere that they are grass-fed, but the meat is also very very lean.. I haven't been able to find any pure bison fat either.  I think I just live in a bad area.   :'(  I also lost my job a while ago, so I can't afford to like, buy online from slankers or anything because of the high shipping cost.. I might also have to stop with my raw dairy, it's so expensive even though it's the only thing that helps my cravings for fat that isn't commercial in-organic grain-fed fat.. I really can't find any good sources of grass-fed fat other than super expensive raw dairy!

Have you heard of the super fatty candlefish? It's supposed to have a perfect fatty acid balance, much better than salmon or mackerel. Unfortunately, it's not available in Europe, as far as I know.

Löwenherz

Oh man, I just heard about that fish in my American Indian history class, I think the teacher said that they were so high in fat that they were mostly used as candles because they burned so easily.. hearing that, since I always crave fat in my diet, I immediately googled the fish since I had my laptop with me in class.  Wikipedia says the fish is considered an endangered species, and that disappointed me because now there's no way I'd get to try eating them.   :(

"On November 2008, the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) received a petition from the Cowlitz Tribe to list a distinct population segment (DPS) of eulachon from Washington, Oregon, and California, as an endangered or threatened species under the Endangered Species Act.[1] (ESA). NMFS found that this petition presented enough information to warrant conducting a status review of the species. Based on the status review NMFS proposed listing this species as threatened on March 13, 2009.[2] On March 16, 2010, NOAA announced that the aforementioned population of eulachon will be listed as threatened under the ESA, effective on May 17, 2010 (See: the Federal Register notice published on May 18, 2010, at 74 FR 3178).[3]"  -from wikipedia

Many years ago, pre-RPD diet, my muscles were so wasted and weak that I bought a very expensive electronic gadget which was advertised as exercising my muscles through electrical stimulation. It was a total waste of money, so I doubt the above would replicate exercise at all. To my shame, I, at the time, asked an allexperts.com fitness/weightlifting expert about this sort of gadget and he told me honestly that it would not work - I duly gave him a very poor rating as that wasn't the answer I'd wanted to hear at the time.  -[ l) -[ :o

Lol, though I'm still pretty sure a huge, fully-funded government laboratory could develop a much better "zap"-ing muscle-contraction equipment than your commercially produced item made for human use and for making money off people who -mostly- just want to work out while being lazy.  Or, even without zapping it, they could probably make machines that physically expand and contract the muscles to better simulate exercise than just electrically zapping it.. or even do both.  And now that I think about it, zapping your muscles to make them contract is probably about the equivalent of just flexing your muscles to see how big they are, which isn't much of a workout at all, though still might be better than -nothing- I guess.

But still, they probably wouldn't spend the money developing equipment to simulate exercise for lab-grown meat unless it would greatly increase the size/gain of the meat in a cheap way and so help them make a profit.  They don't care about health, just making money.

90% beef and only 10% yolk sounds rather restricted in my opinion.  it'd be better to up your fat for one, to avoid rabbit starvation, but it would also be good to add in organ meats too.  They have much higher nutrition content than the plain muscle meat.. marrow is good too as a nutrient dense fat. 

As far as e.coli and salmonella, they don't really develop on grass-fed meats.  you can even eat raw grain-fed meat and you aren't really going to get sick as long as you're eating 100% raw natural unprocessed foods.  Even if you do happen to get sick, it's really not as bad as you might think.  There was a couple times I think I might have gotten e.coli and/or salmonella poisoning after eating pizza or other bad foods from when I worked at domino's, I got pretty sick one of the times where if I ate most anything, especially plant food, I'd get a horrible stomach ache and diarrhea.  All I did was eat more better raw animal foods only and I got better.  Never went to a doctor.  I don't think I've even seen any actual cases of parasites from anyone here, but then I don't search around that much so there might be.  But they seem easily remedied by natural ways.

I've only seen benefits from eating raw paleo, the only time I have negatives is when I stray too much from a good raw animal foods diet.

As for your significant health markers, when I first started raw paleo I was eating trader joe's grass-fed ground beef raw and lots of raw egg yolks, and I had extremely super high energy like I'd never felt before in my life.  I was normally a sleep-12-to-15-hours a day and extremely lazy person, but eating like I was I felt amazing, I would sleep 4 to 6 hours at night and wake up feeling more aware and awake than I'd ever felt in my life.  But then my hours got cut at work and I panicked about money issues, and went back to eating SAD for a while since I could eat pizza at work for completely free.

After that my tastes seemed to have changed and now raw ground beef is not appetizing to me at all, no matter what.  I've been having trouble finding good sources of regular grass-fed steaks as there aren't many health food stores near me, and the ones I can get to don't carry grass-fed meat very often.  Eggs also stopped tasting good to me unless they were the eggs from my aunt or uncles home-raised chickens who are fed on bugs.  I also lost my job so I have to try not to spend too much money on food which is difficult especially when I can't find a lot of good food, and use raw dairy too much.

But most of those markers of yours have improved, I sleep a lot more normally now, healing is slightly improved, acne has improved a lot even though it is still kinda bad and never completely went away, it used to be so much worse.. I've always breathed shallow and slow my whole life though, but I do have no staining effect the majority of the time.  Too much plant foods makes some stain.  As far as feeling less cold I haven't noticed a difference but I've always preferred colder weather.

General Discussion / Re: Himalayan Salt Experiences. Yay or Nay?

I bought this salt.. http://funfreshfoods.com/all-brands/real-food-trading-co/himalayan-pink-salt.html  mostly because it said it is raw unprocessed natural mineral salt.  I don't even really eat it though, I don't add salt to my diet as I feel like I get enough salt from the the lightly salted raw cheese i eat and from the meat I eat, even the cheese tastes too salty for me sometimes.

I also felt as if I was a drug addict to salt when I was trying to switch from SAD to raw, I sometimes couldn't control myself from eating salty foods because I just wanted to keep eating it and eating it and it was not good at all.. I would end up eating salty pizza or something, and I couldn't stop myself from eating the whole thing even when I was full, and making myself feel extremely sick from stuffing myself, so I have a bit of an aversion to salt.  Luckily I'm over the addiction now, I don't crave salt anymore nor does it make me want to stuff myself sick so much.  The only thing it's even added to is the cheese I eat, which might even be one of the reasons I love eating cheese so much though.. but I haven't been able to find a salt-free raw cheese.

Plus,  one of the reasons why wild game is so superior is that wild animals do lots of exercise, something one could not replicate in a hydroponics lab etc.

I'm sure they could probably "zap" the muscles to force them to contract and "exercise," but more likely I doubt they would realize this would  be something beneficial to even do.

Lab-grown meat however, does not appeal to me in any way whatsoever.  The reason I want to eat a raw paleo diet is because I want to eat a more natural diet, and meat grown in a lab is as far from natural as you can get.  The thought of it just disgusts me, and if they ever do start producing lab-grown meat, they better be labeling it as such, because I do not want to consume any of it.  However it might be healthier for the rest of the world's SAD eaters if the meat is more highly nutritious than grain-fed meat, and might also tempt some people to try eating the meat raw since lab-grown meat won't be infested with salmonella and e. coli so they won't have to fear such things anymore.

Though in my opinion, lab-grown meat will probably end up having similar and/or unknown effects such as Genetically Mutated-I-mean-modified Organisms do..
