Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Re: Don't use black pepper...
« on: July 31, 2019, 02:17:21 am »
I use tons of black pepper. Don't use red pepper anymore because it's a nightshade.

That study didn't sound very scientific or exact.

Things never materialized with the last girl. Started dating an old girlfriend from about 8 years ago and she's been eating raw paleo with me and feeling really good. She also seems to look 10 years younger in only a few weeks despite cheating on her diet. She ate mac and cheese for two days and got very sick and has been primarily raw paleo ever since.

I consume kelp in miso soup. Instead of making it the traditional way with strips of kelp from Japan to flavor the water I dump in a heaping tablespoon of dried Icelandic kelp along with a handful of dried tuna and a couple tablespoons of miso. I have a cup every day or so.

I used to use the kelp from Japan till after Fukushima when it made me sick and I found out that it contained nearly double background radiation. Had to throw an entire 5 lb sack away.

I don't consider AV a credible source of information. Has anybody else confirmed that?

I been using YS honey for years and yet I still don't know what YS stands for. It is raw and is the cheapest one I can find. I also find it has a lot of medicinal properties similar to maluka honey. Though I can't remember the last time I had any. It's been a while. Oh. I remember now. It was a few weeks ago when I was whipping up egg yolks and berries!

I would also add papain, papaya, bromelain, and pineapple to the list.

Odd that there are no meats that I am aware of that break up biofilms. Maybe a reason not to go on a strict carnivore diet. What do you guys think?

In addition to serapeptase and nattokinase which work great for me, the last article mentions monolaurin, found in coconut oil. I didn't remember that it was also a biofilm disrupter in addition to being an awsome virus killer. Monolaurin is my go to whenever I am coming down with anything. At the first sign of any illness I  pop half a dozen monolaurin capsules and four more every four hours till it is gone. Many times whatever is wrong is gone after the first 6 capsules and most of the time by the second dose of 4 capsules. I've never had to take it beyond 2 days at that high of a dose. Been doing good lately and haven't had to take it in months!

7 Natural Agents That Disrupt Biofilms

I would have thought that lemons would have been on there!

54 Natural Ways to Inhibit Biofilms

    Linoleic acid (omega-6) [8, 9, 8]
    Oleic Acid/Olive Oil [8, 8]
    Honey [10]
    Propolis (candida biofilm) [11]
    Apple Cider Vinegar [12] -physiologically tolerable concentrations of acetic acid can completely eradicate bacteria in mature biofilms vitro.
    Caprylic acid (G+,-, fungal) [13]
    Stevia [14]
    Xylitol [15]
    Garlic [16, 17]
    Manuka [18]
    Ginger [19] (G+,-)
    Cranberry [20]

Non-Herbal Biofilm Disruptors

    Ozone [21, 22]
    Chitosan [23, 24, 9]
    NAC [25]
    Lactoferrin [15, 26]
    EDTA [27] – EDTA likely exerts antimicrobial activity by chelating magnesium and calcium – minerals necessary for growth and membrane stability and may also display anti-biofilm activity by reducing biofilm material (EPS) production and/or enhancing the detachment of bacterial cells from the biofilm. Magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc, and manganese appear to stabilize the biofilm matrix of a variety of organisms by enhancing structural integrity through electrostatic interactions that serve to cross-link the matrix [5].
    Zinc [28]
    Iron (29)
    Manganese [5]
    High alkalinity (magnesium?) [30]
    Monolaurin [31] (G+)
    Colloidal Silver [32]
    Zeolite (Acidithiobacillus thiooxidans) [33]
    L Reuteri [34]
    Citrate? [35] – Calcium Citrate, Magnesium Citrate
    Norspermidine (found in chlorella) [3]


    Trypsin [36]
    Serratiopeptidase [37]
    Nattokinase [38]

Herbal Biofilm Disruptors

    Andrographis [39]
    Curcumin [40, 9]
    Berberine [41, 9]
    Cinnamon/Cinnamaldehyde [42, 43] and Cinnamon essential oil [43]
    Black cumin oil/Thymoquinone [44]
    Boswellia [45]
    Oregano Oil (carvacrol+thymol) [46]
    Quercetin [47]
    Apigenin [48]
    Naringenin [48]
    St John’s Wort [49]
    Kaempferol [48]
    Rosmarinic acid (higher concentrations) [50]

Biofilm busters is a topic of great interest to me. It's more than just mucus. diseases hide in biofilm. Recently I was eating tons of natto and then stopped and only took the supplement nattokinase. I dropped that and went full carnivore for a few weeks but now am full raw adding in vegetables herbs and some supplements. This week I added watermelon and last I started consuming 4 or 5 lemons per day which seems to keep  me feeling pretty good.

I never cared for rotten anything. I suppose yogurt, natto and vinegar would be exceptions and alcohol now that I think about it. Presently I don't consume any of those things on my diet. I love the taste of vinegar but am using fresh lemon instead which is ten times better.

I believe the reason I eat less on a raw mostly carnivore diet is because food doesn't taste that great. It's been well over 5 years since I had a McDonalds hamburger but I still salivate whenever I buy on for someone and bring it home in my car. Probably not much different that a junkie craving a shot of heroin...

I went zero carb for the first few weeks of going back on a raw food diet but recently I started adding spices to my meat and even more recently whipping up egg yolks with a little raw honey and putting in berries, grapes or whatever is on sale. Mayo is also zero carb and if you make it yourself can be quite healthy.

Get a sous vide cooker. You can set it for the exact temperature you want to maintain the water. I set mine at 112.5 F for most raw cooking. I find that temperatures that are too low promote the growth of bacteria and make the meat stinky or sour. I live in death valley and the sun can actually cook meat to the point of well done. I find that I like fats either heated to 112 or ice cold from the fridge with lemon juice but not at room temperature. That's just me. I'm sure you'll find plenty of people on this forum that disagree.


I'm pretty sure I watched a documentary on this and those guys were so sloppy looking that they reminded me of Sumo wrestlers. So much for a diet of raw milk and grass fed cow blood! What's up with that?

I don't know about blood but I been drinking heart meat smoothies on a regular basis.

I agree with Van so far as blindfolded muscle testing doesn't work but still think there is some value to it otherwise.

Norawnofun: Malic acid! I had forgotten that I used to consume enormous quantities of the stuff in supplement form. Never had a problem with it like I do with cider vinegar giving me allergies. For now I'll stick with only lemons and buy some green apples next time they go on sale. I'll consider going to the supplement if I feel the need for more acid, though it would probably be a step backwards.

Acids used to bother my teeth when I was a child but not at all on a raw food diet. I wonder why that is.

My first cheat on raw zero carb was chicory root tea. Then olive and coconut oils, vinegar and lemon juice, salt and spices. Then I added a few supplements: magnesium, potassium, mineral drops and stinging nettle root. Just last week I bought some strawberries and have been eating them with whipped egg yolks and a little honey. I've been experiencing enormous cravings for canned sardines and olives but so far have resisted anything cooked.

I've stopped consuming apple cider vinegar and only use lemons. Apple cider vinegar seems to give me allergies.

I agree with you that most animals were eaten before they froze to death but I stand firm on the young, the sick and the elderly being eaten first in nature and not the strong and the healthy...

I think muscle testing is a way for your sub conscious to communicate with your conscious mind.

While I don't get serious health problems I seem to not want to do zero carb longer than a few weeks. Who knows? Maybe if I'd kept going I would have experienced problems. I just recently came off a raw zero carb diet. I think it's a great thing to do for a bit to “reset” my metabolism after eating cooked and junk foods but I been adding fruit and a few vegetables the past week or two.

Also stopped working out during that same time period I was junking out. (Actually a long time before that.) Hard to believe the aches and pains I was getting. I've only been working out for the past two weeks. I noticed a huge decrease in pain when I started back on my raw diet a month or two ago, and a further decrease when I started working out.

It's weird but even if I add into account all the aches and pains from working out I seem to get way more reduction in general aches and pains. I'd also have to say that when I add the benefits of diet to the benefits of working out it falls far short of doing either one alone. It's more like the benefits of health, mental well being, strength and assertiveness are multiplied by diet plus exercise and not simply added to each other. Yeah I'd have to say it's more like diet “times” exercise...

I just have to make sure not to over do it while exercising. It seems I steadily improve and then hit a barrier and the improvement stops. Maybe I should just come to terms and recognize my limit and not try and force myself to go beyond it. I'd have been way ahead if I'd done that in the past. Instead I overdid it, injured myself and went backwards in every aspect due to the frustration.

I think you have a misconception. Nearly all of the animals in nature hunt the small and the weak which is how nature keeps populations in check. Also frozen is totally natural as much of earth was covered by ice, so when an animal died it naturally froze over much of the planet.

Actually, I was wondering what would happen if you tried to make mayo out of raw beef fat, without rendering it into tallow. Since you can do it with olive oil it seems like you ought to be able to.

Fat of the land:
Actually I buy liver in frozen individually wrapped slices and use it that way. I just take a slice out and bang it on the counter till it breaks into pieces. Then I open up the bag, dump it in the blender, add some water and blend it. I buy all the rest of my organ meats in larger pieces and cut or slice them up. Then I put them into zip lock sandwich bags and press them flat to freeze. I usually put about ten or so into a gallon bag and label them before they go into my deep freeze. Sometimes I have hearts and tripe ground by my butcher. That makes it a lot easier to just throw a handful in each bag to press flat before freezing. So no. They go from freezer to blender without thawing and are nice and cold when I drink them...

The first time I drank it raw in a smoothie I liked it and my tastes never really changed. I don't care for it raw in pieces because of the texture so I never eat it that way. It's really good in a smoothie. I don't use anything but water. When I first started liquefying it I didn't have a good blender and after a few times the friction from the bearings began to heat up the liver before it liquefied. I finally got one where the bearings don't come in contact with the food. A food processor will also work. I used one for years. Actually wore out a few of them...

Interesting you improved with carbs. What about a zero carb diet for the long haul and carbo loading just before a race?

If you want the steroid effect without steroids try bulls balls in a smoothie. There are tons of experts claiming they don't work but I know from personal experience that they are full of shit!

Almost forgot. In the 1970's when I was racing bicycles there was one guy who was winning races that would pop down a can of coke just before the end of a race. Perhaps a clean diet and using bad carbs just for races might do the trick.

I agree with Tyler. Tooth and gum problems are not a sign of healing. You are doing something wrong. I use a water pick with a little peroxide to blast away chunks of raw meat and spices, and my gums and teeth are the healthiest I've ever had. Even had a filling pop out that was more than half my tooth from the water pick a year or two ago, and was surprised that it had become rock hard and pain free. Was sure I was going to require it to be pulled but it looks like I will be keeping it.
