Primal Diet / Re: Primal Diet and Magnesium
« on: January 30, 2012, 04:59:00 pm »
Cashews have a really high magnesium content per calorie, but then they probably have phytic acid too so I'm not sure how much of that is absorbed.
I just take a pill of magnesium glycinate sometimes.

Ok thanks for the warning. The reason I'm eating chicken liver (I rotate it with beef liver) is because it seems to have a more balanced micronutrient content. 100g of beef liver has like 1000% of the RDA for copper for example, and I'm hesitant to get so much minerals.

Yes that's possible. This one is organic but I'm not sure if it's free-range.
I threw it away, but I'm still curious as to why would liver become grey. Somewhere I read it's possibly because of oxidation.

General Discussion / Re: water controversy

Still, the claim that you shouldn't drink water because "water is bad and soaks up nutrients like a solvent" is nonsense. Milk is 80-90% water, how come this water isn't bad and isn't soaking nutrients? Or are they already soaked? What does it even mean soaks up nutrients and why is it bad? Doesn't make much sense at all.

Getting dehydrated is really bad, so if you're thirsty just get water, in whatever way you prefer..

I'd suggest you try only egg yolk (without the sac) and see how that works. The egg white has some antinutrients which get deactivated only by heat so that may explain why you're fine with cooked eggs.

I have some completely grey chicken liver, do you think this is ok to eat?
I bought it like this, only two livers are grey the others look normal.

I do not know how to trust my sensory signals. If I go by that, I would love to eat the sweetest fruits all day long...

I doubt it, at some point you'll start feeling sick.

Agreed that's very stupid, if you're thirsty just drink water.

Health / Re: Enzymes

I doubt any enzyme survives in the stomach, except maybe those that specifically work in such an acidic environment, like pepsin for example.

A dose of fructose induces oxidative stress during endurance and strength exercise.

Interesting.. as far as I know for endurance training glucose and fructose are recommended in 1:1 ratio for fastest glycogen repletion, since they are metabolized via different metabolic pathways. Here's a recent paper which shows that fructose+glucose is likely superior for performance:

I would take these studies with a grain of salt though, usually they are performed using pure glucose/fructose which may not translate perfectly to real life.

Probably because we're usually more active (more carb use) in the summer?

You could just lift smaller weights if you're concerned about getting too big muscles. Women have hard time gaining muscles though so I wouldn't really worry.
From the pictures you look quite right btw, I don't see any big arms at all :-) If they are bigger now then that means you used to be too thin

We are a large percent of red meat ourselves, so red meat is kinda closer to what we mostly need.
I like to eat both fish and meat though, together they provide for pretty balanced nutrition.

The warmed-up liver pattie tastes just like cooked liver.   I know you despise liver, but maybe your pets don't. ;)

If it tastes like cooked liver doesn't it mean it's cooked?

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Re: Is really grass-fed >>> grain-fed?

Good for you questioning things Alph, but the fact is you'll never find ruminants out in the wild cultivating grains. The most grains they ever get are what's on the stalks of grass that has gone to seed. If you want to understand what makes healthy food you have to observe wild counterparts. Any time you deviate from such a diet you risk fouling up the resulting derivative foods (meat, milk, eggs, etc).

The question is, how significant is this for our health? Is it orders of magnitude, or just tiny differences like a little more of this fatty acid and less of that one?

If for no other reason at all - why would you want to eat cows that were treated cruelly when you have a choice not to?

Because I'm very poor and grain-fed is cheaper, for example? What you're saying is very valid, just a bit off topic.

This guy says there's no evidence that grass-fed is healthier, it isn't much tastier, nor safer, which seems very much in contradiction to the experiences here. Personal experiences are most of the time fuzzy though, how do you know if it wasn't just a placebo effect, an effect from something third (e.g. was the problem the instincto diet, or the grain-fed meat, in TylerDurden's case; did his health improve significantly later because of switching to grass-fed, or because of being longer on raw diet), etc. I'm continuing on it seems like a pretty comprehensive collection of related research.

Thanks for the link. I'll try grain-fed to compare, so far I've been only eating some organic raw beef which happens to be grass-fed.

Many millenia ago, did humans stop eating their natural diet

What was their natural diet?

A pretty convincing argument that this grass-fed hype is a bit overblown.. what do you guys think?

Unrelated: why is the Ubuntu logo all over this forum?
