Hi Good Samaritan,

    I was raw vegan for about ten months at a time.  I was raw fruitarian about one month at a time.  Raw vegan was just complicated.  Raw fruitarian felt dangerous after a few weeks.  RAF's are much more sustainable for me too. 

    LOL, no, :) I'm not Masai.  I appreciate theirs and many other cultures.  I don't do public pictures, but I can send you a decent shot if you give me your e-mail address.

    Give it to me Raw's policy is it's for people who love raw food.  The outspoken members on the site, about ninety-nine percent of those are vegan.  Non-vegans are pretty much restricted by a group of the vegan faction to posting to each other through private messages only.  There are also 'private' groups there which the public can see.  Very recently the Raw Meat Eater group has become active.  If you have time, please stop by.

    I gave turkey to our cats.  I'm not cooking today.  My spouse here and also my child living at home here are both cooked vegans.  We're 'hiking' over to a gourmet vegan restaurant.  I'm going to have a salad and several grapefruit juices.   

    Thank you everyone!

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving  :)

Your background is impressive! Wonderful to have had such experiences, even if you choose a different path for the present & future. I'm sure you'll get a lot of good info and support here.

    Thank you very much Living the life.  I feel very grateful for the experience.

    Yes.  I'm liking what I'm seeing very much here, good calm energy. 

    Fortunately or not, the link above just goes to the social network now, the discussion has apparently been deleted.

    Hi. I have a history of being on enzymatically active food, on and off ever since the delivery table. I was breastfed two full years, my childhood snacks were fresh cut rinsed celery sticks and carrot sticks, my mother mostly ate paleo (with cooked unprocessed meat but not enough fat) my entire life just about and was ever slim, graceful and active. I interned at Anne Wigmore's and prepared most of fifteen meals per week there for months including all snacks and most drinks from seed sprouting to dish-washing after everyone ate during Dr Anne's lifetime, I've done raw vegan no grain no legume no nut and fasting. I started practicing primal diet a few years ago. I believe biologically available living nutrition is the only nutrition, and I have about 6,000 posts at the site above, just click the devil emoticon/icon/avatar/smiley left upper corner above and you can find them and read forever, but who'd want to? I have worked in many vegan kitchens as I was vegan for a long time (and got very sick but I know it wasn't entirely diet related). I'm happy to be considering RPD now.  :)

You know you're an RPDer when non-rawist acquaintances, such as doctors etc., unsubtly and constantly  go out of their way to tempt you with foods banned on your diet, such as alcohol, coffee, pasteurised dairy etc..

    heheh, that happened to me about a year and a half ago.  I was strict, only primal diet.  I went to a doctor (specialist as I had been really sick before turning to pd)  to get tests, see the improvement, yada yada.  Since I was getting tested I didn't eat since the day before (which is wrong on the pd as ur supposed to drink a little milk or eat a raw egg at least every five hours even in your sleep for real!).  Then the doctor made me wait all day in the office.  When he finally saw me he acted insane.  When we were supposed to be done he wouldn't let me leave and he kept offering me baked crackers and canned juice.  It was already after office hours, and he wouldn't let me go.

    I want to thank you Tyler.  Before I changed to RAF, I did lots of different related searches on the internet, and read a lot of good stuff you wrote.  It helped me make the right decision to start RAF'ing.

    You know you're a RPD'er ... when you leave your seat at the (home dining room)table, your own place setting untouched, after serving your family...and scurry off to get a mason jar of nice raw 'not previously frozen' 'stew' meat out of your fridge to eat with your sweet furry house-cats, warming it only between yours hands first.

    BTW, one of my cats (she's curled up in my lap asleep) only eats muscle meat and nothing else, my other cat is practicing to be an omnivore (acts like a little pig when it comes to what foods to beg for and eat).

PS You can eat some fruit RPDing.  In primal diet, we eat our fill of raw animal fats first, or raw coconut cream, and then eat a small portion of fruit, which at this point really does feel like enough fruit.  Also, you could mix that fruit in with the fat instead.  I think it's best to keep carbs below seventy-five grams per day.

Hey all, so I've been raw for around 7 months but like most I was sucked into the raw vegan movement. I didn't become a raw vegan for ethical reasons, strictly for health issues. I'm just turning 20, and for the last 3 years I've suffered from crazy random bouts of bad health. Included symptoms:

Lower Abdominal Pain
Upper Right Abdominal Pain
Lower Back Pain
Upper Back Pain
Acid Reflux
Heart Burn
Stiff Necks
Swollen Lymph Glands
Floaters in Eyes
Neurological Double Vision
Pale Skin
Major Anxiety Emotion Issues
Obstructed Bile Flow
Congested Sinus's
Temporary Bouts of Jaundice
Black Circles Under Eyes
Freezing Hands and Feet
Severe Mental Disturbances, Confusion, Rage, Tunnel Vision, Speech Difficulties

Going raw helped A LOT of these problems at first. Then they began to return for some reason. I cant even make a solid statement into what I think is going on with me any more. I'm getting to the point where I feel my body is ready to begin major repairs but it just feels like it doesn't have the tools for that. I started off high fat raw vegan, and there is some thing about the raw fats us raw vegans consume that is All the nuts and oils actually caused me to have stiff necks, head aches, confusion. I noticed when I went to a raw vegan potluck, a lot of the raw vegans had these strange blank confused looks in their eyes. And many of them including my self at times seem to make very unquardinated conversation. Maybe it's just me but some thing was very off about every thing.

But many of you may not realize that there is in fact a huge split happening among the raw vegan community. You see Dr Doug Graham's book 80/10/10 has managed to sink in and it's become the low fat bible of so many failing raw vegans. I'm sure some of you have witnessed Durianrider running his big mouth on you tube, he is also preaching what Doug Graham started. His theories goes as following, get 80 percent of your calories from carbs, 10 percent from fats and 10 percent from proteins. Literally you're supposed to eat any where between 2000 and 4000 calories of fruit a day. It seems to be working great for some, but not me like was promised.

Any way, enough ranting I'm here because my mind is open and I'm looking for true healing of my body. Personally, I don't want to be skinny like durianrider, it DOESN'T FEEL NORMAL to have such a low weight. I'm 19 years old and 119lbs at 5'8. Granted, I'm still strong I still work out and my muscles seem to be alright. But I want to be my normal weight again, 140lbs made me VERY comfortable. I figure animal foods and exercise will be able to help me with that, I hope any way. By the way I'm not basing the raw vegans high fat or low fat, for some it obviously works great for. I don't think my body is formatted that way. I do love fruits though, lol.

So, hello every one! I'm Dameon! ^_^

    Hi Dameonwolf,

    I see durianrider (aka Harley) around online a lot too, and I've listened to Doug Graham interviews.  You know me I think,  ;) as I post a lot on the mostly vegan raw forums.  If you're who I think :) one could say maybe that you helped me find the paleo forum.  Anyway, it is my experience that diet works best when we believe in it.  We need to know ourselves, our own bodies, and work in conjunction with our instincts.  I think that's what really works when eating raw.  I underlined some of your words above.  Maybe you could re-read them.  I do think with reason that you've hit on something here.  I've also seen and read about too many people who suffered greatly by trying fruitarianism when they had neurological problems.  What I mean is:  they did pretty permanent damage to themselves that then lasted for many years.  I wish you the best in health.  Welcome.

    Your new friend,

    My understanding, as little as that may be, the hunters, who were mostly the men, at the site of the kill may have drank the blood, eaten the heart, the liver, some fat, whatever they needed after a tough hunt, but then brought (or dragged) the bulk home to the families.

I don't know how to embed videos yet on this forum, or maybe I do, we'll see how this comes out.

It's a fourteen and a half minute video movie preview referring to the same 1922 expedition I believe.  In it, the shaman refers to some particular hunting taboos and eating.

Tricky language - 3 or more is Inuit, 1 or 2 is Inuk.
The actor would have done what was in the script, but if they ate their food on the spot (the original fast food?), what did their wives and children eat?

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Re: Nuts VS Meats
« on: November 26, 2008, 03:57:12 am »
I know that some say paleo people would've ate mostly sprouted or soaked nuts and seeds, but I find black walnuts that aren't sprouted or soaked at all. Their on the floor dry by themselves. I'm sure paleo people would've eaten many dry nuts. Whether soaking lowers toxin levels or not, doesn't it lower nutrition too?

    I know in the RAF camp they soak nuts twenty-four hours, but many years ago I was a Living Food Lifestyle'ist.  I don't know about black walnuts, but we soaked almonds and hazelnuts about twelve hours, until they were peelable while still raw and alive.  We peeled them before using them in recipes.  This helps in the culturing process.  It also improves the flavor.  We soaked seeds less hours, and didn't peel their inner skins.  If digestion is better, then we obviously get more nutrients.  Before I did living foods I couldn't gain weight no matter how I tried.  With living foods I gained a good five to ten lbs the first week and kept it on almost a year after I quit eating that way.

What are EMs?

I've been dissolving a pinch of sea salt in distilled water w/ moonlight or diffused sunlight for drinking... Curious about this "gut-friendly" water... I assume your drinking the alkalized water? How's that going for you?

Also, how large / expensive is the equipment you use?
    EMs are effective microorganisms.  I think although they come from highmeat, they may be from a bottle in this case (like probiotic supplements are).
