incidentally (i'm adding this bit now) lemon, anionic as it is, helps eliminate excessive urea (acquired from raw meat food)

What do you think did man do when he had no lemons?

I added salt to my meat tonight and my legs are really aching now and my feet have ballooned. Ouch.I havent had salt for a long time.

I like to add just a very little (less than a teespoon) of sole to my drinking water once a day (I see salt in context with water and not with meat)- it kind of gives the water that special touch and does have it's benefits in our body (many functions in our body need sodium and chloride)! I noticed the glace I use gets a white crust from the alkaline ionized water I drink; when I put a little sole in the same glace it helps brake up that deposit. My thoughts are that we have many deposits in our system which could be eliminated/transformed with salt too (amongst all the other life essential properties salt has).

Your body will react - reacting does not have to be a negative - it is just a reaction.

Sorry, I do not believe in all your detox! You have been doing your version of HED (high everything diet) that Bruce is publishing on his yahoo group. Why "stuff" (your own words and my thought is you go from one extreme to a nother)  yourself with rice and the rest? It's all your own fault; have a look at "Bee Winders" pages - it is not healthy what you are doing!


I would like to add so that it is clear; you posted on Bruce's yahoo group that you stuffed (your words) your self with rice and other cooked foods. On top of this; you have tried raw milk before and posted about the gas in your system...what kind of game are you playing? It's your body and mind you have to deal with -[

I'm experimenting again with raw cow milk every single day for some 5 days now and I keep farting and farting and farting. And my farts smell like they are liver farts. Probably some kind of detox.

I've been eating raw honey too as Aajonus suggests to better digest the raw milk.

My question is, did this, or does this happen to you?
How long before this farting stops?
It's embarrassing, it liver stinks.

Im half irish, the rest mainly gypsy i think and i have a dutch last name.

I've had dry skin, keratosis and dandruff. These are all caused by candida.

I have cold showers and always feel great afterwoods. Hot showers strip my skin of oil and make me feel like crap and my definition of hot is nothing compared to the scalding showers most girls have.

Try warmed suet for face cream, superior to crappy plant stuff.

You are in Australia; spend some time in Ireland (or any other colder country) - you might like a warm shower / warm water...

I do that with the suet too; when I have finished eating I will use any left over suet (I have it in small vacuum bags) for my skin.


Today I bought this soap:

Genuine Aleppo soap, made to the original recipe, is recognized and used for its natural properties. Made from olive and laurel oils, it has been produced in exactly the same way for 4'000 years. The olive oil (70%) feeds your skin without drying it out, whilst the oil of laurel (20%) purifies and protects.
Specially recommended for cleansing and cleaning dry skin (and problem skin) and hair - even for washing clothes. 100% Biodegradable.


Thank you Nicola.  So I just poor a bottle down the drain if butter should clog the pipe?

EM is a product that comes in many forms (it does not have to be liquid!); it is one of those grate products that is to good - to much money and to many jobs would be lost if it came threw in many country's!

I have found a soap that I will be getting next week (via post). I was looking for a soap with the oils like Tooter has been kindly informing us about and EM which I have also added to my water ionizer.

This is all about EM (I have mentioned it before):

So if you do clog up your drains with meat and fat, CO, oil pulling then some EM will clean things up for you

I'm going to try drinking some fresh squeezed lemon juice with my meats to see if that aids digestion. I think I might have low HCl since I belch a lot after a fatty meat meal.

Lemon juice has nothing to do with your body's HCl.

I was wondering if  anyone here has a rough idea of how much percentage of weight the bone has in a big leg of lamb or mutton,by comparison to the overall weight of the leg?

Also, I can easily look up fat-percentages of grainfed meats, but does anyone here have a clue as to what the usual rough percentage of total fat is in a kilo of 100% grassfed beef (muscle-)meat, say?

I asked at my slaughterhouse today when I got my suet and muscle fat; about 30% of a leg is bone. This is about what I thought when I was eating mutton.

Your other question  -[ would that not depend on the breed (Argentine beef are different breed to French...), the age, the time of year and the cut?

Been as we are talking about hydration and fruit - suger!...

Foods That Damage
Sugar Is Poison!
The average person living in the Western world consumes about 125 pounds of refined table sugar every year! Did you know that sugar is poisonous to the body and that it leads to, or directly causes, 146 health problems and diseases? Here are just a few examples:

Sugar can suppress the immune system and it contributes to the reduction in the body's defense against bacterial infection (infectious diseases). Scientists have proven that too much sugar is the death of the immune system.
Sugar upsets the mineral relationships in the body. It also interferes with absorption of calcium and magnesium.
Sugar produces a low oxygen environment = cancer and candida (fungal) growth environment.
Sugar causes a loss of tissue elasticity and function.
Sugar can cause and/or lead to appendicitis, atherosclerosis, arthritis,asthma, cancer, candida (fungal overgrowth), eczema, emphysema, gallstones,heart disease, hemorrhoids, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, periodontal disease, varicose veins, etc.
Sugar weakens eyesight and it can cause cataracts.
Sugar contributes to diabetes and obesity.
Sugar can impair the structure of DNA (genes).
Sugar is the #1 enemy of the bowel movement.
Sugar can cause headaches, including migraine.
Sugar can cause depression.
Sugar causes indigestion and constipation.
Sugar feeds cancer and other fungal diseases, i.e. candida (fungal overgrowth).
Sugar is an addictive substance, and it can be intoxicating, similar to alcohol.
Sugar causes high blood pressure in obese people.
For the complete list see Sugar, 146 Reasons Why Sugar Is Ruining Your Health.

The fact that sugar greatly depresses the immune system has been known for many years, mainly because of Linus Pauling. He is the only person ever to receive two unshared Nobel Prizes — for Chemistry (1954) and for Peace (1962). He concluded that white blood cells need a high dose of vitamin C, and so he developed his theory that high doses of vitamin C were needed to combat the common cold, the flu, and even cancer.

Did you know that vitamin C and sugar have similar chemical structures so that means they compete with one another for entry into the cells? New research confirms Dr. John Ely's 30-year theory that sugar (glucose) competes with ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) for insulin-mediated uptake into cells.

Consuming sugar can effectively crowd out the ascorbate (vitamin C). The effect of the Pauling Therapy [high doses of vitamin C] is reportedly much more pronounced and immediate when sugar is eliminated.

If there is more sugar around less vitamin C is allowed into the cell, and vice versa. It is interesting that taking vitamin C also helps curb cravings for sugar, alcohol and carbohydrates. Since our bodies cannot make vitamin C on its own, it must be obtained from foods or supplements on a daily basis.

In his book Sugar Blues, Bill Dufty points out numerous examples of physical diseases and psychological disorders that can be traced back to diets that are deficient in whole unprocessed foods, and dominated by highly processed fats and sugars.

One example he notes is that "by 1662, sugar consumption in England had zoomed from zero to some 16 million pounds a year, this in little over two centuries. Then, in 1665, London was swept by a plague." However, the bubonic plague was blamed on rats?

The problem with sugar consumption is not just limited to refined table sugar. Other types of sugars are just as damaging, i.e. corn syrup and sweeteners, honey, maple syrup, molasses, glucose, fructose (fruits), and all artificial sugar substitutes and sweeteners, i.e. NutraSweet, aspartame, saccharin, etc. – see the partial list below.

Names for Sugars and Sweeteners (partial list)

carob powder
corn starch
corn syrup
crystalline powder
date sugar
malts of any kind

Artificial sugars are particularly damaging to the body because they are neurotoxic, meaning they cause damage to the brain, spinal cord and nervous system. In Sugar-Free Blues Jim Earles writes this about aspartame:

"Researchers at Utah State University found that even at low levels aspartame induces adverse changes in the pituitary glands of mice. The pituitary gland is the master gland upon which the proper function of all biochemical processes depend.

When aspartame is digested it breaks down into the amino acids phenylalanine and aspartic acid, plus methanol. Methanol, or wood alcohol, is a known poison.

Methanol is also found in fruit juices, and our regulatory agencies have seized upon this fact to assure us that the methanol by-product of aspartame is not harmful. They fail to point out that the methanol content of a diet soft drink is 15 to 100 times higher than that of fruit juices."

Fruit Is Not As Healthy As You Think
Did you know that fruit is not the healthy food it is claimed to be? Fruit is mostly fructose sugar with some vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Those vitamins and nutrients are easily obtained from meats, eggs, and vegetables.

Did you know there is more vitamin C in broccoli and peppers than in any fruits sold at the grocery store today, and that meats and eggs also contain vitamin C?

Even healthy people should limit fruit consumption to two per day and they should always be accompanied by plenty of saturated fats to slow the release of fructose into the bloodstream.

That is why strawberries and cream tastes so good together! Like all other sugars, fructose causes insulin resistance (see the section below), as proven in scientific tests. Fruits that are lowest in sugar are grapefruit, lemon and lime.

Also a high carbohydrate diet is just as damaging to your body as sugar – see the section below Scientific Proof Carbohydrates Cause Disease. Did you know you can obtain all of your body's blood sugar requirements by eating meats, eggs and saturated fats, and no carbohydrates!

That is because "58% of the protein and about 10% of the fat you eat are converted to glucose," as stated by Prevention Magazine.

Insulin Resistant Cells
Sugar and a diet high in carbohydrates creates insulin resistant cell. Insulin is a hormone secreted by the pancreas. It helps the body utilize blood glucose (blood sugar) by binding with receptors on cells like a key would fit into a lock.

Once the key, which is insulin, has unlocked the door, the glucose can pass from the blood into the cell. Inside the cell, glucose is either used for energy or stored for future use in the form of glycogen in the liver or muscle cells.

The body's cells become insulin resistant because they are trying to protect themselves from the toxic effects of high insulin, which is required to regulate blood sugar levels when the diet is high in sugars and carbohydrates.

This causes the cells to down-regulate their receptor activity and the numbers of their receptors so they don't have to receive ?that noxious stimuli' all the time.

It is like having this loud disgusting music being played and you have to turn down the volume. Insulin resistance by the cells leads to blood sugar problems like hypoglycemia and diabetes, and also to high blood pressure.

In Insulin and Its Metabolic Affects Ron Rosedale, M.D. states: "A less known fact is that insulin also stores magnesium. But if your cells become resistant to insulin, you can't store magnesium so you lose it through urination.

Intracellular magnesium relaxes muscles. What happens when you can't store magnesium because the cell is resistant? You lose magnesium and your blood vessels constrict. This causes an increase in blood pressure and a reduction in energy since intracellular magnesium is required for all energy producing reactions that take place in the cell.

But most importantly, magnesium is also necessary for the action of insulin and the manufacture of insulin. When you raise your insulin, you lose magnesium, and the cells become even more insulin resistant.

Blood vessels constrict and glucose and insulin can't get to the tissues, which makes them more insulin resistant, so the insulin levels go up and you lose more magnesium. This is the vicious cycle that begins even before you were born."

I start getting extremely dehydrated(no matter how much water I drink- the water just gets quickly urinated out without being absorbed)- My heart-rate goes through the roof and  I feel like I'm on my death-bed

Now in some cases crystal salt may lower high blood pressure within a few days. Other effects that people may notice rather quickly is that their bodies are more easily hydrated. They drink water, but it seems to finally do what water’s supposed to do in the body. You may start to find your cravings for sugar diminish. Crystal salt helps us to stay hydrated because it electrically charges the body in such a way that we can use water more efficiently so our blood will stay naturally thin, move easily and gracefully through our arteries and capillary system without increased blood pressure.A lot of people report that chronic pains lessen to some extent even after taking crystal salt for only one or two weeks. Other benefits are more of a long-term nature such as the detoxification of the body which is something you would never want to rush. If you use crystal salt in your diet regularly, you should have sufficient iodine coverage. Also with weight loss, crystal salt can help over time. There are immediate, midterm and long term benefits from taking crystal salt but I would not try too much to envision when these benefits should occur because the wisdom of your body always knows best. Now as we know from medicine, dehydration is a problem that can support the origin of any disease that we know of. On the other hand, hydration on a cellular level, which requires more than just drinking water, it requires water and the right type of salt that can help us with any health condition and can also improve our well being in general.

Many studies have been done in Europe on crystal salt. These studies show that crystal salt contains calcium and magnesium. These minerals are essential for staying healthy. Peter Ferreira conducted a study on 400 people (done over a 2 year period) that proves the importance of crystal salt in our diets. In his book “Water and Salt”, he found that by using crystal salt, blood pressure can be balanced, calcium deposits can be eliminated, usable oxygen in blood can increase, red blood cells can be un-clumped, blood can be detoxified, the full spectrum of elements that resonates with our bones and enzymes and builds bone marrow can be utilized, radiation is neutralized, capillaries can become more elastic and blood flow increases, extra electrons are added to the body, (which are free radical scavengers), the entire spectrum of electrolytes that the body needs can be received, uric acid can be detoxified from sodium chloride intake, a possible increase of elimination of heavy metals through the stool may occur, and cravings for sweets are reduced.

The salt can detox in two different ways: By taking the brine or salt you detoxify through the elimination process and the other by bathing in a salt bath, using the Miracle Krystal Bath Salt you detoxify through the skin. The bath is a gentler way and can be used by people who have been more severely poisoned through industrial chemicals. The bath is gentler because the toxins come through the skin and do not have to pass through the liver and kidneys to exit the body.

One of the first symptoms of detoxification that a lot of people notice when they start using the brine is that they have a natural desire to drink more water. This is not the same as being really thirsty from over-eating salt, as you may have experienced in the past with table salt, but it’s a natural inclination because the body needs more water to flush out the toxins that are set in motion by the use of the brine. Some people experience mild detoxification symptoms in the form of a light headache for a day or two, maybe some skin rashes, change in body temperature, a skin irritation, constipation or bowel movements. Usually these detoxification symptoms are very mild and only if they should persist and bother you would I recommend you stop using the brine and simply use the granulated salt on your food which will not cause a detoxification reaction.

Brine Detox Information: For some people the brine can be a powerful detoxifier. Those who are taking any prescriptions or over the counter medications, or have any condition that may be salt sensitive, are advised to consult a knowledgeable healthcare professional before taking the brine. We strongly suggest that you start with one drop and slowly increase to a maximum of one teaspoon per day. More is not necessarily better. Small amounts on a daily basis will bring the best results. If you experience any symptoms of discomfort, stop taking the brine immediately and consult your healthcare professional. Not recommended for children under the age of 18. Not recommended for pregnant or nursing women. Drink a minimum of two quarts of pure water daily when using the brine.

A salt substance derived from acidic citrus fruits, such as lemon and limes, that is dried and formed into a powder or crystal. When used as an ingredient to flavor foods, it provides a distinctively sour or tart taste. It is a common substance used in sausage making and in canning, to keep the color of fruits from darkening, and is commonly used as a substitute for lemon juice. It is also called for used in some recipes (often called sour salt).

Perhaps it's just that the cooked-zero-carbers are less honest than RAFers.

As regards the notion of eating fat in hot weather, that's ridiculous. I find, for example, that eating lots of raw animal fat/meat, while effective in winter re heating up the body, is a really bad idea in summer - so, in the summer, I tend to eat more raw fish/shellfish than in winter, as well as adding in
slightly more raw fruit/veg and lowering the amounts of meat/fat I eat, doing more fast-days etc. If I eat large amounts of raw animal fat/meat in the summer, I just sweat like a pig.


You mentioned organ meat; didn't you eat muscle meat every day - perhaps that is the key? Those other zerocarb members on Charle's forum are not eating organs.

I am not so shore about the fat - if we look at Charles and know that he does a lot of exercise what can we say?

I'd already been eating very mineral-rich raw organ-meats, so mineral-deficiency couldn't possibly  be the answer. Craig once suggested that people with adrenal-related issues might have problems with RZC. I used to have adrenal-related issues(which went away by the 2nd time I went RZC, but it's possible that my adrenal glands were still a bit weak, despite the healing).

But, most likely, it's just a case of different physiology not adapted to zero-carb etc.

What I can not understand is that the zero carb members on Charle's forum do not mention any problem of feeling dehydrated. The next thought was digestion; cooked vs. raw? Charles mentioned again today to eat fat in the warm weather and not drink lots of cold water and eat salad.

Seeker mentioned raw meat feeling heavy and not moving threw - again the other zero carb members (cooked meat) do not mention this.

Adrenals and stomach acid - digestion/metabolism is all hooked together.

Lex has never reported of any problems, eats raw zero carb and lives in a warm climate.

My heart-rate goes through the roof and  I feel like I'm on my death-bed

If you are peeing water strait out again and your heart-rate goes through the roof then this must have some thing to do with a mineral disbalance. Why do you think carbs are the answer? You should be able to notice if you feel bloated or any other symptoms?

Well, a few  like Lex have claimed that salt was essential(presumably a zero-carb requirement?). I've never felt a need for it. Though, once when I was doing raw zero-carb(and failing miserably) I was feeling so dehydrated despite drinking vast amounts of mineral water(and urinating it all out shortly after) that I added salt to the mineral-water I was drinking as that's supposed to hydrate the body more effectively than salt-free water. Didn't work, though, for me, that time.

You never mentioned how you made up your zero-carb affair - and what pray was your feeling of being dehydrated (I do not have to urinat shortly after - but this may be the ionized concoction)? What was your raw paleo answer to not feeling miserably dehydrated?

It is brain taking...

HCl: You Are What You Assimilate!

Q: Besides zinc and magnesium, what other deficiencies do those of us seeking muscle and performance need to worry about?

A: The most common one, which actually causes zinc and magnesium deficiency, is hydrochloric acid (HCl) deficiency.

Back when I was an undergrad many moons ago, they used to tell us that you lose about 1% stomach acid per year after the age of 40. Well, that's not true anymore because our high stress levels these days decrease HCl. We did a study at our Chicago facility where we gave 160 clients an HCl test. Only two people passed it with a medium score; 158 had a horrendous score.

If there's insufficient hydrochloric acid, proteins will pass into the intestine and putrefy instead of being digested. Carbohydrates will also be left to ferment without adequate digestive enzymes from the pancreas. Fat digestion is also dependent on the acid's influence on the pancreas to secrete lipase and the gall bladder to secrete bile. Poor digestion of these macronutrients means poor absorption of our basic energy sources.

Over the last four years, I've been amazed how a correction in HCl deficiency has led to not only dramatic improvements in physique and strength, but also improvements in a variety of health parameters. Interestingly enough, in strength-trained individuals those improvements are often associated with gains of 15 to 18 pounds of lean body mass within two months! Why? They are now absorbing proteins and minerals.

Here are a few of the symptoms of low stomach acid:

belching or gas within one hour of a meal
bloating shortly after eating
bad breath
loss of taste for meat
nausea after taking supplements
brittle fingernails
undigested food in stool
foul-smelling stools
stomach pain
desire to skip meals
estrogen buildup
acne rosacea

In the US, many experts estimate the deficiency to be in the range of 40 to 50%. Some gastroenterologists are now advancing that it is today's most under-diagnosed ailment.

There are a variety of medical tests you can get, but here's a simple test you can do at home (but I suggest you talk to a physician qualified in nutritional medicine before you try it). It requires a bottle of Betaine HCl, at 200 mg potency per capsule. Here's how it's performed:


Step 1: Have a high-protein solid meal (no shakes). Let's say for illustration purposes a 12-ounce steak and vegetables.

Step 2: Eat half the protein, roughly 6 ounces of the steak.

Step 3: Swallow a 200mg capsule of HCl.

Step 4: Eat the other half of the steak and the vegetables.

Step 5: Wait 15 minutes.

Step 6: If your stomach acid is normal, you'll feel like you just drank a hot cup of tea or feel a burn. If you feel nothing, you need HCl as a supplement.

So what do you do next? At every meal repeat steps 1 to 6, upping the dose one capsule per meal until you feel the burning sensation. So if it takes five meals to get a burning sensation, you need on average four capsules per meal. If you get to seven capsules and you have no burning, stop the test — you're achloridic, meaning you have almost no stomach acid!

At our Phoenix center alone we've been doing over 250 tests a year for the last four years, and in that time I've never seen one person not need at least one capsule; the average person tested could feel it after five capsules. You're getting better when you start feeling a burn at your initial determined dosage. For example, if you found that five capsules was your initial need, you may find that three days later it starts to burn, so then you'd cut back to four capsules with a typical high-protein solid meal, and so on.

Most people achieve normal levels within eight weeks even when they start at seven capsules, but some individuals take as much as 18 months. I have two clients who need two caps a day permanently. Why? Because neither one will ever escape their stress levels (one of them is a real estate mogul and the other is a highly accomplished author).

Make sure that your HCl product also contains the probiotic pepsin and the digestive enzymes papain and pancreatin, as they have a synergistic effect with HCl therapy. (You can acquire my version of this product by contacting

In addition to the above HCl protocols, here are a few other suggestions to normalize your stomach acid levels. First, avoid carbonated drinks.


Second, avoid all-you-can-eat buffets, as they're America's leading source of food-borne pathogens. Finally, there are numerous herbs that can contribute to raising HCl, such as gentian, peppermint, and ginger, but be aware that very few controlled studies exist on this topic.

I believe this is so important that my clients aren't given a supplement program until they get an HCl test. Remember, not only are you what you eat, you are what you assimilate!

Why doesn't old Bruce open up a house (all inclusive) for all those slow metabolisms?

It is just a low-carb dogma that you can only lose body fat
by depleting glycogen levels. You should instead ask the
low-carb zealots to give you proof that there is no way to
lose body fat if your glycogen is full. The mechanism for
losing weight on HED is that your metabolism speeds
up when you give the body plenty of natural animal fats
and carbohydrates. The metabolism increases and the
resulting increase burns off body fat
. By eating until the
point where starches are repugnant, you literally put the
metabolism into high-gear. Adding weekly high-calorie
days where you eat even more takes the metabolism to
yet another level of efficiency. I would have to have been
under-eating by 1480 Calories a day to lose 11 pounds
in 26 days. But I was eating at least 3,000. How do you
explain that, along with all the other improvements in my
digestion, energy, mood, skin, etc.? Calories just do not
count, except for people with a bad metabolism. People
like that get fat by thinking about food.

I've never seen any proof that you can't burn fat without
depleting glycogen, except within the context of trying
to exercise or "diet" your weight off. But this ignores a
compelling alternate theory, that by giving the body its
preferred fuels (fat and glucose), you can lose weight
even with glycogen levels over-flowing. Because your
metabolism goes through the roof.

This blog will tell you that we have made our body not able to cope with food and the only way to get healthy, loose weight is to eat a lot of food's, just with exception of a few unhealthy ones!

Please have a look at the comments belowe; Bruce K. is the guy who runs the AV-Skeptics Yahoo group. He has been going on about PUFA's and eating low fiber, not mixing this and that...all the time. Well now he is binging on fast food and claims that this is making him healthy (weight loss, no bloating and satisfying elimination)!

So now we know; we are detoxing and ill threw "dieting".

Low-carb's a disaster in general, esp zero-carb and raw paleo. Those diets are the perfect way to screw up your metabolism. My experience &
Matt's and a lot of other people's is that you can lose weight while bingeing on carbs if you do it right. Like once or twice a week eat huge amounts of hamburgers (with the bun and ketchup and everything (pref no mayo). I lost 3-5 pounds in the last 2 weeks. I don't keep track closely, I just go by the overall trends (every week or two weeks). The only thing I did differently was going out on weekends and eating like
3-5 burgers (no veggies, just meat, cheese, ketchup, and maybe some pickles). I eat at a different restaurant every week, so I don't get used to the taste.

Just yesterday I ate sausage, egg, and cheese croissant sandwich for breakfast, 5 cheese burgers for lunch, and 4 bacon cheeseburgers for dinner (just water to drink), then a cup of ice cream (Haagen-Dazs) , and an orange before bed. My weight is 3-5 pounds below what it was 2 weeks ago, my digestion is better, my skin is better, my health is
better. I must have eaten at least 2500-3000 Calories just yesterday as my weekly binge-fest. Now I'll go back to my normal diet - meat, dairy, fruit, honey, and the occasional roots, potatoes, and white rice. Cheating and switching it up is the most effective diet, ever. Matt Stone's ideas are making people like Michael Eades, Robert Atkins, Barry
Groves, Jan Kwasniewski, and Richard Bernstein seem more and more ridiculous and wrong. Their dogma that you have to cut carbs is dead wrong. You can eat carbs all day every day if you eat the right ones, and then eat whatever you want one or two days a week, and still be
losing weight, gaining muscle, restoring metabolism to that of a healthy young child, etc.
