Off Topic / Re: Why is my cat overweight?
« on: May 21, 2017, 01:22:18 am »
You cant compare a dog to a cat at all. Its very simple with a dog, and there isnt any wild dogs in Denmark. Im talking about cats. Even if i kept my cats indoor, other cats are jumping through my windows, and there are many cats where i live. You may prefer to drown kittens and puppies, but i dont, and i also think its illegal here. I dont think you understand it, but cats and dogs cant survive in the wild here. The only healthy looking "wild" cats i see here, are being fed by other people. And the cats are suffering in the winther months. We dont have places with a lot of nature and forests, where animals go out and live on there own. I cant just open my door, and the young kittens walk away into a wilderness, because there isnt any. But its easy enough for others to say, who lives in a totally different environment. And there ARE rules about neutering your cat, if you live in an apartment.

Yes there is a big cultural difference, and also a difference to how well the animals survive on their own. Denmark is mostly smaller cities and fields, with very few and very small forests. There are almost no places for wild animals to live, at least not carnivores, and you are lucky if you see a fox few times in your life. And the cats arent designed to our cold climate.

My sisters cat was also very fat, and she fed it the vets cat kibbles very low on fat (at that time we didnt know about real cat food), but it didnt help at all. My parents had two cats, one of them fat, and the other one very slim. I know other people with slim and normally looking sterilized cats too. So its a little strange. But i did think she would lose some weight on the raw meat diet. If she was just a little overweight then ok, its just crazy she is THAT fat.

You should know how much i worry about my cats, and hate to "remove" something from a healthy cat, but you must also see it from my point of view. And i did definitely NOT do it because of the menstruation, wich is not even a big issue with a cat. I live in Denmark in an apartment, with other people all around me. I got my two cats from a neighbor who didnt take care of them, so they were starving and came to me. What about all her kittens? What should happen to them? I think its better to have one overweight cat, than over 100 kittens running around without homes, sick and starving. It also gets very cold in winther here in Denmark, and i see cats looking awful, very thin, and with eye infections. They are lucky if they are being taken in to an animal shelter, and there they will also sterilize them, to minimize the number of wild cats running around in the streets. And it helps, the number of wild cats in Denmark is low compared to other countries, and homeless dogs doesnt exist here at all. Many cats die because of the cold alone, and there isnt enough prey for them to hunt, especially near apartments where there isnt much nature around. I know how animals are treated in the third world countries, running around in the streets, many of them sick and starving. I couldnt bare to see my cats kittens just running away and dying off, because i cant find a home for so many kittens. Even now there are many cats the shelters cant find a home for. And i definitely wont feed her poisonous birth control pills, her intire life. Im not even allowed to have cats in my apartment, wich is not sterilized, and you are very lucky to find an apartment at all, where you are allowed to have more than one pet, most places you are not allowed to have pets at all. A woman in my neighborhood have gotten into trouble because she has cats getting kittens all the time. The animal organisation comes here once or twice a year to catch all the wild cats and kittens, and to sterilize them, and try to find them homes. The vets and organisations say you should sterilize them at 5 month old, but i think they are too young. In your country you might be shocked and horrified about animals being sterilized, but in my country we are shocked and horrified to see animals in other countries homeless, hungry and ignored. Your thoughts on it isnt any better than mine, as you would have one normal and healthy animal, but be the cause of many, many kittens or dogs living an awful life, with a terrible death. I would wish there was a better solution to both, but i cant find any.

Right now she isnt eating anything from others, because she is only out walking with me, but in summer i will try to keep an eye on her not finding kibbles at the neighbors gardens. I have read it can damage the cats liver not to eat for a day, especially if the cat is overweight, but is that true? I dont really know.

My cat is 7 years old, and she has been eating a raw meat diet for 5 years now. Before that she ate organic grainfree kibbles. She got sterilized at 7 month old, and she gained a lot of weight shortly after that. I thought she would lose some weight when she started on raw meat, but she hasnt lost anything. I feed her only organic or wild meat, fish, liver and other organs, and i supplement with crushed bones and some vitamins and minerals. She is moderately active, i think, and i walk her once or twice a day. She only gets about 6 or 7 small cat kibbles every day as a snack, and she dont even want anything else. She eats 1-3 times a day, and i dont really think she eats very much. Some days she barely eats anything at all. I got another cat that is not overweight and he eats almost twice as much as her. I dont think its a good solution just to feed her less, then she will walk around meowing and looking for food, and maybe she will run away to other peoples gardens to look for food, i know some people have crap cat food in their gardens. I didnt think you would have to count calories on a raw meat diet, especially because she already eats very little. Is it just because she is sterilized? Her metabolism must be extremely low. But if i just feed her less, then will she get enough calcium and other nutrients? It irritates me when people say "you're really feeding that cat well! It looks like she is pregnant!" and things like that! She weighs 6,5 kg, and i would guess her normal weight is about 5,5 kg or so. Besides of that she is a healthy and happy cat, that can still play and run and everything.

I do only eat frozen meat, i simply cant get grass fed or organic meat here, besides of the frozen. And its not even 100% grass fed. But i really cant lay restless at night, i just buy the best i can get, and thats good enough. And btw i really dont care if the meat has been frozen, i dont believe it matters, and im fine with it.

Health / Re: Enough vitamin K without vegetables?
« on: December 22, 2013, 11:11:25 pm »
Thanks for the replies. I think I will eat some nettle and dandelion, as I know they are high in vitamin K. What about parsley? It should contain really high amounts.

Most people I know just dont like or tolerate vegetables very well. Humans dont digest them very well, and in many cold countries, you cant barely find any. But of course we are all different, and I think the best thing to do, is to find out what works for you.

Health / Enough vitamin K without vegetables?
« on: December 20, 2013, 07:51:37 am »
I dont tolerate vegetables well, and I know that the green vegetables are full of antinutrients. I dont like them very much either, so I rarely eat them. I know there are different K vitamins, and that K1 mainly comes from green vegetables, and K2 comes from animal sources. When I look at nutritional data, I get very little K1, and I am wondering if I get enough? Do you even need that much vitamin K1? Is it exaggerated? IMO humans are only supposed to eat very little vegetables, if any, and many people seem to live fine without them.

I get diarrhea too, if I eat fruits and vegetables. I eat maybe two fruits a day now, but too much fruit, and especially vegetables and green vegetables are the worst! I have always been told, like most people have, that you have to eat tons of vegetables, and I have had problems with my stomach all my life. But I have found out that if I ditch the vegetables and also grains, my stomach becomes normal.

The title "Anti nutrients in vegetables and fruit?" is ment as a question. Besides there is anti nutrients in some fruits, fx berries.

Health / Re: Cant tolerate the sun/getting burnt
« on: February 28, 2013, 04:56:30 am »
Im glad to hear that saturated fat, cholesterol, astaxanthin, and other things can help, because I know that I did not get enough of that before. Some years ago I lived almost like a vegetarian, with very little fat and meat, and for some years I used plant oils as a supplement. Those were the years when I got most burned. I was sick all the time too. I have been eating some raw paleo for over a year now, but not every day. I think its hard to eat that way, and I have gotten better as I get more and more used to the raw foods, and found out where I can get the products I want, because it has been hard to find good quality foods. There is still some months until summer, and I will really try to stick to the raw paleo foods until then.

Health / Re: Does freezing destroy the milk fat?
« on: February 28, 2013, 02:28:06 am »
Ok. Im glad freezing does not destroy anything. The milks smell and taste is a little different than before freezing, but fine. I simply dont have another choice than to freeze most of my food, or buy it frozen. I love butter, but i dont think i would ever get it done, but i think i will take a look at it.

I love milk, and I drank a lot of it when I was younger, but I stopped drinking it some years ago because it was pasteurized, so I have missed it. But I have never had any problems with digesting the pasteurized milk or any allergies. I dont feel very hungry when I drink milk, but thats just good, because I tend to eat too much,  and I have a lot less sugar cravings when I drink it.

Raw milk is illegal to sell where i live, so it was really difficult to find some. But i did, and now i have frozen some. But it gets a little grainy, and i dont care about that, unless it means the fat is destroyed? Do you know why it becomes grainy?

Does he get enough vitamin C?

Yes, and what i have heard is that its the DHA and EPA thats healthy for the body, i dont think ALA has the same benefits.

I have heard it many times. But some people say its only seeds, so i dont know about nuts. Here they say it also other plant-based sources.

« on: November 28, 2012, 07:25:55 am »
Even if some nuts have a good ratio, do you think you can use the omega 3 in them? I know you only use about 5-15% of the omega 3 in seeds.

Should i eat bentonite clay with a meal, or between meals? I have read that it can remove minerals from the food, do you think thats true?

Ok, I dont think I need to worry about that. I eat maybe about 250 grams a week of beef liver.

Health / Raw liver. Too much vitamin A?

I have just started eating raw liver. I have read that you shouldnt eat more than 200 gr raw liver a week, because you will get vitamin A poisoning, but is that true?

Of course fat people can be more healthy than thin people. You can be thin but eat unhealthy, and you can be fat but eat healthier. Its all about what you eat. You are not healthy just because you are thin or normal. But of course you are healthier if you eat a good diet, and are normal weight. But that said, i dont think that normal weight is as low as the bmi says, i think you are healthier having a little more fat, than the bmi says.

Salt is healthy. I use himalayan crystal salt, its full of trace minerals. But i dont think table salt is healthy.

Are you using toothpaste with fluoride? My teeth was so sensitive 1½ year ago, that i couldnt barely eat any fruit at all. I have had it for several years, but when i stopped using fluoride, it completely disappeared within two weeks, and i can eat any fruit now.
