Should organic veggies be washed?? Also, if fruits are not organic, specfically berries, should they be avoided??

Try it and see what happens.  it may be exactly what you need right now.

I tried it with goat butter and suffered huge breakouts on my face. Like I mentioned earlier, I am not sure if we should follow what our body craves (Atleast for some of us). It is like our genes are trying to trick our body... after all, our genes only care about their own survival and not of the host (the body). Maybe what I just said is a load of bullshit. All I know is, if I ever eat tons of fat, or tons of carbs (even if they are from non grain sources) it leads to breakouts. It seems that the only way for me to control my breakouts is to:

1) consume very little calories a day and go into starvation mode 

There has to be another way...

Just make sure you eat everything in its most raw possible state. Eat anything that you crave which can be eaten raw.

Nothing too complicated. Youll figure out soon enough what works for you after trying every raw food if you trust your body enough.

I crave bananas all the time.... if I wanted to I can eat 10 bananas in a sitting. Not sure if cravings are the way to go (but then again, I am a newbie)

i dont think you have to worry about small amounts in moderation.  vegans or anyone who has made themselves sick off almond butter were probably in a situation where it was making up a large part of their caloric intake or had no self control and prone to binge on it.  it does have high omega 6 to 3 ratio and all nuts have some kind of anti nutrients in the form of phytic acid.  both of these at high levels are unhealthy.  macadamia nuts have a pretty low level of phytic acid, i think they are the lowest of the tree nuts.

From my understanding, you can binge on macadamias since they are basically monounsaturated fats

Well to be careful I would figure out which fish are the ones that go up river (stripe bass is the only one I know of) or the ones who hang out at the mouth of rivers and avoid those. Would take some research. You can get on a party boat and go 15 miles out or so, should be clean by then.

I wouldn't worry about it too much. I think that fish are afforded a certain amount of protection simply because they live in ocean brine. I am not sure but I wouldn't be surprised if even the most organic grass fed meats are no less contaminated from air pollution. I wouldn't be too worried about it, but that's me. But I would be a little bit worried about the species, cause certain kinds of ocean fish like to subsist on human fecal matter found at the mouth of rivers!

WTF?? Are sardines one of these fishes??

Hey guys, So I must admit that my researching skills are horrible. I want to become better at researching to find what is the optimal diet for me.

Any hints/suggestions? thanks!

Does this apply to refrigerating fat as well (i.e. refrigerating butter)?

one thing,  having travelled the world, at least in most latin countries, men have wives,  which they want fat, so that they are not feeling anxious that another man will take her away from him.  And then they have an affair with a younger, slimmer women.  I found this to be true and explained to me several times in as many different parts of the world.  So, maybe there's a more complete notion to the idea of woman are most beautiful when they are plump.

Have you traveled to a olive-oil consuming country (legit olive oil)? If so, how healthy were these individuals and were they skinny normal or fat|?

I saw a documentary on that. Very interesting. They drank so much milk they'd throw up. lol

can you tell me the name of the documentary please?

And that is why fish and blubber does me so well and seems to help with the milk craving.

Tests, I've never seen anyone claim to have 100% pasture-raised chickens, unless you mean chickens allowed to roam outside year round (when not laying). It's not like 100% grass-fed beef where cattle feed only on pasture. I just buy whichever local eggs are the best of those that are easily available to me and the results have been good. Chickens seem to tolerate a certain amount of grain better than cattle, and it makes some sense since their ancestors fed in part on wild seeds.

"Let's get this straight from the get go.  No one, here or anywhere else, has real 100% grass-fed chicken meat birds.  If anyone claims their meat bird chickens are "grass-fed" they are not being upfront.  At best, they can claim their chickens are "pastured."  Pastured means raised on grass but supplemented with grain-based feeds.  The best pastured feeds contain flax seed though, so that improves the nutritional fatty acid profile. Grass-fed would mean chickens on pasture being fed nothing."

Interesting... their are pasture raised eggs available to me, but they cost about $8 a dozen

Iguana definitly doesnt feed his ducks any grains and I hear they are doing great. I think he doesnt feed his chickens either but yull have to double check that.
Is Iguana selling his eggs?

I have great taste and experience with Braggs and Cirio for extra virgin olive oil.

I think braggs olive oil may be fake

122
I honestly don't know. I know TONS of people who are incredibly smart/intelligent, who pick up things really fast... and they also eat the typical american diet. Nothing but trash food

I checked out chris kessers site, he is not currently accepting new patients.

In regards to vitamin d, how much sun exposure should I be getting daily, and more importantly, what time of the day is best for sun exposure?

124
I just want legit unadultered olive oil. If it tastes good, so be it!

This is not a direct answer to your question, but I used to live in Anaheim, so I want to remind you how many olives are grown as landscape trees in that area. Most homeowners don't do anything with their olives except rake them into the trash. You probably can get some unsprayed olives in season (late autumn) by posting a request in FreeCycle. If you remove the pits, blend up the olives, and drain them through a nut-milk bag, you'll end up with olive oil floating on top of the liquid. You'll get total control over rancidity that way.

Now the direct answer: Artesanal olive oil stores are springing up in upscale urban centers in California. I saw one http://www.beyondtheolive.com/ just off of Colorado Boulevard in downtown Pasadena on a recent trip, and we have one in Campbell (ritzy San Jose suburb), CA. I don't buy olive oil, so I never asked about how the oil is produced, but you might call them and ask about their olive oils.

As I was looking up the name of the Pasadena store, I noticed the California Olive Oil Council http://www.cooc.com/. You know, we are a major commercial olive-growing state, so you might find someone selling good oil from their farm at a farmers' market. The fresh oil will be found after the autumn harvest.

Interesting. What do you think of the study that I posted (and the name brand kirkland)?

I will have to look into this further
