Yes and no because I know at least I personally would feel like total shit if I ate all that, my body telling me not to eat it all again.

I can say that after the time I have been eating the way I do, I really don't have any (or very little) interest in indulging in food any more, and I am someone who definitely went through a period of having some strong emotional eating (though nothing too serious). With time, open-ness, awareness and acceptance we all have the potential to grow.

I don't really feel noticebly bad after eating anything bad... chocolate especially not, and I crave it badly when starting my period.  But the bad things come up less noticably as things like really bad acne, which I still can't pinpoint exactly what causes it and what wont because I still get it no matter how I eat.  That's the most noticable problem I get from eating bad food, but secondly I'll slowly start noticing other bad things such as slight diahrea/constipation, which doesn't, in my mind, directly associate with what I ate because it happens so much later than when I ate.. also some slight weird pain I get that is only noticable when something presses on my stomach area or my sides or other random places, it feels like my muscles are sore or bruised very slightly or something and I have no idea what exactly causes that pain, just that when I eat a lot of bad foods that happens.  I might get headaches but that might be caused by me forgetting to drink enough water.  My body just doesn't really give any immediate or direct problems when I eat bad food other than maybe when I'd eat too much bread and it would expand in my stomach and stretch it out or something and make it feel like there was a huge big painful rock in my stomach, which happened most when I would sometimes eat pizza from work when I still worked at dominos pizza.  But that was the absolute worst I'd eat, usually if I eat bad anymore it's still at least organic with minimal ingredients and prossessing.  But it still makes me break out.

oh, do you have hobbies on days you arent at school or do you work?
have you ever applied for food stamps?  have you tried gentile activities like tai chi or qigong?  sorry i assumed so much, school does not sound like much fun

also where do you live? right now is there is fruit in season in almost every state...any chances there are close organic orchards that you can help pick at for a bushel of whatever is coming off the trees?  or organic farms/markets you can volunteer at and get some kind of compensation?

my hobbies are pretty much playing video games, drawing, or reading.. nothing active.  I have no idea how to do taichi or qigong.. the only orchards around here are oranges which are all fenced in and illegal to steal, and I don't even like oranges much.  or fruit for that matter, I mean i love fruit but I can not live off of it, if I eat too much fruit I start to crave fat so badly I'd probably give in to buying fast food, or at least eating some of the grain filled food my mom cooks.  I have money saved up, I just need to make it last until I can find a new job.

your body is telling you you need to eat more food and relax.

All I do all day long is relax, laying in bed playing games on my computer, and only really get up to eat and go to class three times a week.. i probably do need to eat more but I lost my job and grassfed meat and raw milk and organic fruit is all expensive so I can't really buy more food until I get a new job.. which is why I also don't want to try to excersize more because I need to conserve my calories until I can afford more food.  Eating cheaper food results in me breaking out so bad it takes months to try to calm it down and I've still never been able to entirely get rid of my acne.    :'(

Well my body also tells me it doent want to excersize at all and that it wants to eat 5 lbs of chocolate and have french toast with powdered sugar and maple syrup or pancakes, and pasta coved in melted cheese and cooked and processed meat, and fast food, but I don't listen to those urges.   :P

but When I'm walking to class and don't have time to stop I just want to know if it's okay to drink water while walking without stopping because it -seems- to me that I should stop to drink.. just wanted to know if there was anyone who knew if excersizing might interefere with the body's ability to properly process the water or something..

I tried googling whether it is good or bad to drink water while excersizing, but it's all pretty much yahoo-answers type stuff saying it's fine.. but then they also say it's fine to drink while eating..

So I thought I'd ask here since I trust you guys a lot more   ;D  Do you guys know if it is bad to drink water -during- exercising?   and I don't mean like doing some situps, pausing for a moment, sipping some water, then doing more situps. 
I mean like, while you're powerwalking or jogging, without breaking stride or pausing, if you drink water while your body is active at the same time?

I mean I figure in paleotimes they wouldn't have had bottles of water to carry with them to drink while exercising.. and I do not drink while eating and avoid drinking for a while after eating.  But I get thirsty more while I'm power walking somewhere and I feel like I should avoid drinking until I get to where I'm going and sit for a bit and let my body settle.. but is that necessary?  Or am I being too paranoid and it's perfectly fine if I drink while I'm still walking?

I don't think the cold is the problem, sometimes things I put in the fridge get frozen.  The packaging might be the problem, my dad would probably freak if I just left bones sitting on a plate or just wrapped in parchment, and say I can't eat stuff that's been left out/unsealed blah blah, so I have to be able to hide it if I wrap it weird or find some other way to keep it.. and it can't smell, either..  and I don't have a lot of room for stuff.

Yeah, I'm going to make sure that at least for now, there's always something available for her to eat if she wants to.  I tried cracking open an egg in a bowl, and she was eating it, so there's a start for some raw protein and some good nutrition in the yolk.  She didn't eat the whole thing though and seems to dislike the thick slimy part of the white.. so maybe I'll just give her the yolks instead if she won't finish eating it.

Another thing that would be good to know, is how to discipline a cat.. I only know how to discipline dogs, and I doubt the same methods would really work on a cat as good.  How do I teach her not to do things I don't want her to do?

Thank you!  I thought about the starvation method, but then I read something about not letting your cat go hungry because it could go into some sort of liver failure and die.. because their livers have a hard time processing their fat or something, and if they go into starvation mode to burn their own body fat, their livers get overwhelmed or something?  I dunno if it's all true or not, but it made me wary of not feeding her for a few days.  We also haven't been letting her outside or anything, we brought her out for a bit one night but she doesn't seem very street smart or anything and I'm afraid of her getting ran over by a car..

Also read somewhere that ground food is not as good either because it hits their stomach too fast before it can develop enough acid (that would normally build up while the cat is busy chewing up and ripping apart a carcass) and causes some slight digestive problems.. dunno if that's true or not, either

The frozen marrow bones I left in the fridge for a few days actually got moldy and the bones changed colour.. it didn't look good at all and smelt similar to milk gone bad(to me).. and my parents were complaining about the smell in the fridge.

I'm not going to reject the cat, or ignore it, or hate it, or abuse it, or anything like that.  I love all animals, especially carnivores.  I just -prefer- dogs.   But I like cats, too.  I just don't quite understand them they way I understand dogs.  And I'm not -only- going to feed the cat my leftovers.  I won't starve it.  I'm going to feed it plenty all it needs.  I just tend to have leftover meat that I don't eat because I only really like to eat it raw if it's super fresh, and if it gets just a little brown I won't eat it.  Which happens in like a day. 

I might look into this ziwi peak brand food though.  The only problem is that it sounds very dry, and I read that cats need a diet high in moisture because they don't drink a lot of water.  Her nose seems to be a little bit clearer today than it was before, and I was able to get her to eat some cooked chicken and cooked tuna(because that's all we really had), as well as the raw juice in the bottom of the jar my steak was in.   She really liked that juice, so I don't think it will be too difficult to get her eating raw meat, though when i did cut off a small piece of my raw steak and tried to feed it to her, she wouldn't really eat it.. chewed on it a bit, but wouldn't eat it. 

Also, I thought cats were solitary creatures?  At least some big cats are, I think.  Either way, she won't be lacking in attention since there's three people who live here who are all willing to play with her and give her attention (including me).  We already made her three new toys today and ran all around the house giving her a workout by chasing us dragging her toys around.. she really seemed to like them!  hopefully I can get her chasing mice, next..

Wait until the virus takes hold and your babbling and eating flowers on the sidewalk

anyways thats a really manipulative present. I bet my life he got that cat for free.

well then you're dead, because the cat cost $450.  They also gave me a bag full of stuff with the cat including litter box, litter, bag of food, toy, a bed, and a scratching post, bowls for food and water, all that jazz.  It's a very pretty cat, pretty cute and very affectionate, she likes to curl up on my lap and just lay there.  She doesn't meow much and when she does it's very quiet.  She came with a collar that has a bell on it which is louder than she is.

7 times more likely to commit suicide?  well I have a 0% chance to commit suicide, and 0 times 7 is still 0%!   -d

As for returning the gift to the person who got it for me, that person happens to be in jail.  so I don't think giving it to them is really an option.

Anyways, I don't mind keeping the cat, I like cats, I just don't know much about them and I prefer dogs.  I just don't have a job right now so affording food might be a slight problem since my own food tends to be very expensive.  but if I can get her eating raw meat, then feeding her my leftovers wouldn't be as much of a problem.  Mice are cheap to buy, too.  And eventually I'll get a new job.

or rather, I was given a cat as a birthday present.  I'm not really a cat person, I'm much more of a dog(well, canine) person, and I didn't even want a pet in the first place because it's hard enough just feeding myself...

But now I have a cat.  now I have to feed it.  but I can't make it eat commercial pet food, not when I'm here trying to eat a healthy raw carnivorous diet.  But what do I feed it?  I mean, I figure lots of meat/organs/bones from beef, chicken, and fish.. but does anyone have any suggestions for a good healthy raw cat diet?  I'm planning on eventually buying live mice from the pet store (that are normally used to feed snakes) and letting her catch and eat them, if I can get her to.  But would a diet of pure mice bought from the pet store suffice for a cat? 

She's not a kitten, but not a full grown cat, either, probably a couple months old.  She's some non-shedding breed and supposed to be an indoor cat I guess.  She just had surgery to get her spayed a few days ago, or like a week ago, at most.  She also happens to have a stuffy nose and is sneezing a lot, which I heard makes it difficult to feed them since they rely heavily on smell to eat.. and I'm pretty sure she can't smell much right now.  I've already tried feeding her some salmon, tuna, beef, and beef liver, none of which she's really eating, but she will eat the dry cat food that was given to me with her.  I'm letting her eat it for now, because she hasn't been eating much of anything since I got her a couple days ago, and I'd rather her not starve to death, but I want to switch her to eating raw meat as soon as possible.  Or at least wet canned food, since I've read they need a moisture rich diet to be healthy, and don't drink much water.  I just figure it's probably going to be really difficult right now while her nose is all stuffed up..

But any suggestions would be very welcome, thank you

There is no whole foods very close to me, but I once was able to stop by one on the way home from the beach (it is the closest whole foods and about an hour or two drive from home) and when I was there I bought some grass-fed marrow bones.  I'm pretty sure they were fresh never frozen, and cut up right when I bought them since the guy asked for a few minute before they could have the bones ready, so I figure they were cutting them right then and there.

The marrow was soft and creamy and reddish, and I don't remember how long I kept it in the bones for, but I remember I did at one point scrape out all the marrow and into a glass jar/bowl thing with a cover.  That marrow was the most delicious stuff I have ever eaten in my life, and I wish I could get it every single day.  I know I limited how much I could eat of it so that it would last me, and so I'm pretty sure it lasted me about a week kept fridgerated.

I've tried buying other marrow bones since then, but the only other grass-fed ones I can find are kept utterly frozen solid as rocks.  I don't know if it's the same soft marrow as I had before, since it's frozen completely hard, but I think it's more the other type of marrow.. and it's hardly appetizing at all, I try to leave it in the fridge so that it will soften and not be rock-hard-frozen, but then it starts to stink real bad after a couple days and I have to throw it away.  I haven't even eaten any of it.  I want the whole foods marrow I got before, again.

Very nice Wolf!


Wolf - right on! I like to run on 2paws though:). Dragons are amazing. Like beautiful devils in thier fire, power, and greed, but with honorable hearts.
     What is your other name?

You mean my human-given name?  Cassandra Janell.  I do love my name.

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.
