Perhaps avoiding their posts would be a wiser choice than criticizing them.

LOL.. Elementary my dear Eve! I'm way a head of Ya. Sorry you don't agree with my post. But, thats your opinion, and you have every right to disagree. Thanks for your comments.  :)

IMO, this forum should be about learning from one another and sharing ideas. For 90% it is. There is a lot of wisdom and knowledge in this forum. Also, there seems to be a good share of free thinkers, and people who like to push the limits too. I like that! But, most of us didn't just land on this site by chance. Most of us have been through countless diets and health issues. We have schooled ourselves throughout the years on nutrition and health issues. When you start any diet, and I mean any diet. You have to follow a certain protocol, if you expect positive results. You guy's know that! You can't be 10%, 45%, or 70% in. You have to be ALL in. Some of these people are Trolls, I understand that. We don't know what they eat, or what food choices they make, or what drugs they take. If they are serious about taking the step in the RFD, I think it's our responsibility to reach out to them and help them. If there serious! When I joined this site, I made a commitment to myself and this diet. I just think we get off topic on a lot of crap/bs. I'm not here to change the world! I'm here for me, and to learn all that I can from the many members in this forum. I also love sharing my ideas as well, for anyone who cares to listen to them. I'm not saying chuck the site, and start over from scratch. There are so many paths in this forum, why not add a few more? The 50% and under section, where people can interact with others at their own level. Same with the 75% and under. When you graduate to the 90% and over, your at a whole different level with the RPD. So people can go at there own speed. These are just My suggestions people. Don't get all excited. If you like it you like it. If you don't than you don't.

One more thing if I may. This is not an argument, so don't treat it as such. It's a personal opinion! How about a section 50% under raw. 75% under raw. 90% over raw? With an added section for mental illness?

How about those who are still on their way to becoming raw paleo?

How about a separate section for newbies, or for people who are transitioning? Maybe going 100% was a little too far. But, at least 90% and 100% with meats. Is it just me, or are you guy's getting a little sick and tired of people posting their mental issues, thinking that the RFD is a cure all? The RFD can do so many great things for long term health conditions. But, you have to commit to it 100% in order to get what you want out of it. I personally don't care what are numbers are in this site to be quite honest with you. I would rather have quality than quantity any day! Some people are to wishy washy. You have to commit to the RFD if you want results. When you land on this forum, you have to have an open mind and think outside the box. Like I said this is a lifestyle choice. None of this "RFD has made be mentally unstable, or what foods should I eat to cure my BLANK". We need a hard core section that is at least 90% raw. My biggest rant with this forum, is when people "try" the RFD, and then go back to cooked foods and feel like shit. Then come back, begging for the answers to all their questions. This isn't a mental health forum. It's a RPD forum. What part of RAW Paleo do you not understand? I understand this forum is loose on it's interpretation on the RFD. I get that. But, come on people? I only speak for myself, and this is ONLY my opinion. I appreciate you reading my post, even if you don't agree with it.

This is just my two cents. But, there are too many people who aren't 100% raw on this website/forum. I don't get it! It should be a 100% "Raw Paleo" diet forum. If your not 100% raw, you should be on a different forum IMO. I get it that people are curious, but if your not ready and disciplined enough to go the Raw Paleo way, then they add nothing to this forum. There's too many people that want their hands held, and want all the answers to all that ails them! I don't think we need to play nurturers, or Dr. Phil with people. The RPD is NOT a CURE ALL people!! It's a lifestyle! You have to apply it people, if you expect the changes you desire.

Exercise / Bodybuilding / Re: strength increase = muscle increase?
« on: July 30, 2012, 02:35:18 pm »
So does that mean I have put on some muscle? I cannot tell just by looking at myself.  My scale weight remains the same. I do not do measurements because measurements are hard to do and are inconsistent.
Absolutely, it does. Your just leaner. Your burning body fat! Congratulations

General Discussion / Re: Butter???
« on: July 30, 2012, 02:27:10 pm »
If I recall correctly, I believe butter is non paleo.  But, you can tailer the RPD to your personal liking and preference. I've learned in this website, there are no rules! Everyone's a little bit different in how they define the RFD. If you like it, and it works for you. Go for it. Just listen to your body. Just because it doesn't work for someone else, doesn't necessarily mean it won't work for you. Do your research, and make an informed decision for yourself. Don't follow someone's advice blindly, even mine.  :) . Words to the wise!

I also consume large amounts of kidney and liver just straight raw. If they are delicious I will chew them, but if the batch is really gamey and I can taste 'cow' then I'll just drop them to the back of my mouth and swallow so fast that I don't taste anything. Another way is to dowse them with fresh lime juice, yuuuuuuum!

I eat it straight. I'm not really into the "smoothie craze". I actually like the gameness of organ meat, so it's not that difficult for me to eat them. But, thanks for the info non-the-less!

Primal Diet / Re: Why does raw milk make me urinate a lot?
« on: July 30, 2012, 01:31:53 pm »
It is a liquid, so that's to be expected. It could just mean your body is processing the raw milk accordingly. I wouldn't stress over it. As long as you don't have an allergic reaction. I think it's normal

Hot Topics / Re: butter oil
« on: July 30, 2012, 01:21:43 pm »
It's Centrifuged processed, which filters out the impurities in the butter, compared to simmering like ghee. It has more of the factor X vitamin due to the fast growing grass, and select style of grass they grow/use. It's constantly growing due to irrigation. It just cost more to produce. It's much more concentrated than regular pasture raised butter. How much more concentrated, that is the million dollar question.The question is how much regular pastured butter must you eat, to get the same amount of factor X in green pasture butter oil?  It's up to you to decide if it's worth it to you. If you eat a lot of butter, I wouldn't stress over it!

I start this journal to help me find my way to paradise, help others with my experiences and to have fun ;)

Hi littleElefant, I think we're ALL trying to find our way to paradise. Even on long journeys (life), we still take one step at a time. Stay positive, and embrace your challenges. You stated that you force feed yourself because you are skinny. So when is it a crime to be skinny? Learn to embrace yourself for who you are, instead of fighting it. You sound like you have a fast metabolism. Do you know how many people wish they had that? A lot! It's a genetic gift, embrace it. Instead of eating huge quantities of food in one sitting, try eating smaller portions more frequently throughout the day. Don't be afraid to have a  small high calorie meal/snack before you retire for the evening. We are all unique in our own ways. One of the hardest things in life is excepting and embracing ourselves for who we are. We have a tendency to always look outside for the answers, instead of inside ourselves. That's where true happiness begins. Go somewhere where you can think peacefully, and follow what your mind and heart tell you. Don't over think things. Take each step one at a time. You'll get there, be patient.

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Re: Order of eating, and food coupling
« on: July 28, 2012, 09:53:48 am »

I am wondering in what order should I be eating foods, and what I should be separating?
What foods should I couple together for good digestion?

When I was doing food combining. I'd stick with meats and vegetables. Fruit by itself (it usually takes 20-30 minutes to digest). So have it first thing in the morning, or between meals on an empty stomach.  I've eaten tomatoes with meat and I did just fine. Fats are neutral, they go with anything, except fruit. It will just slow the digestion process down. Egg and meat is not a great combo for cooked meats. I have no clue about raw though. I read something you shouldn't mix more than one protein source at a time (fish/beef, beef/chicken, ect). But, like I said that was for cooked meats. Everybody is a little different. So I'd recommend experimenting and see what your body will/can tolerate.

Health / Re: I keep losing weight!
« on: July 28, 2012, 09:29:47 am »

So basically it could be that my body is not breaking down the fats and proteins right which can hinder weight gain?
Absolutely. That would be my guess, I doubt you have parasites. But, that's just my opinion.

Thanks to all for your kind words.
Thoth that is so sweet that you prayed for me.
I know my massage was not coherent at all yesterday, I was in a fiber dream.
Joe, you are right I stress to much. That is in part due to my . (inherited it from my mother) I'm sort of oversensitive, scared of everything and have a lot of cramping. My 3 Chakra, the solar plexus, is almost constantly cramped and rock hard. Live scares me, I live quite withdrawn. Perhaps also because I am so different than others.
Weston price style diet sounds good to me. Perhaps I have to let go the raw food idea?
What is a crock pot meal?
Chris, of course I read the information. I'm on and of raw paleo for years. I know that it is the right direction for me, just having problems putting it in to practice in my current environment with my body and sure with my vegan history. Still feeling sometimes like a monster eating raw meat and things.
Thoth, my food is now the best quality. I just eat grass fed grass finished or wild meat and fish. I'm still looking for a good fat source to get more calories. The last month I ate a lot of coconut, but the fiber gave me the worst constipation ever and I had to stop it. Now I do my own coconut cream, but I think I overdid it with the coconut fat, also a reason why I was so sick. And the high meat overdose.
Perhaps I should start a journal to sort it out.

You sound much, much better today. I hope you find the right program that fits what your body needs. The only advice I could give you is listen to your body. Go with your instincts. Trust yourself more. You seem to have your head on straight. I had my doubts yesterday. You sounded so cryptic. Remember the RFD is very subjective. Start very gradually, go at your own speed. Good Luck Noel!

Health / Re: I keep losing weight!

I have a suggestion for you Suiren. When you eat your fats and proteins, use some good quality enzymes. They will help break down fat and protein, so it becomes easier for your body to absorb. Lipase for fats, and Protease for protein. Try adding a good lipase supplement directly to your oils, let the enzymes have a chance to break down the fats, then enjoy. Give it a try. Enzymedica ( makes a great product that is free of allergens ( soy, dairy, corn, egg, wheat, gluten, ect). They have a diverse lineup of enzyme supplements. Hopefully, that might do the trick for you. Good Luck!

Exercise / Bodybuilding / Re: Should I workout?
« on: July 27, 2012, 01:14:38 pm »
I want to try to build a little muscle ...but i have a physical high stress job( ups driver), i work 10 hours a day on a very high volume route. Do you think I should work out ? IF so before or after work;(usually after work im exhausted) Should I workout weekends? or is it best to rest overweekend due to work week?


Of course you should work out. You should do it first thing in the morning then, it will give you energy and get the "juices" flowing. Start out 3 days a week, then gradually increase to 4 or 5 depending how your body reacts/feels. Remember if you want to build muscle, you need to push yourself, and intensify your workouts.

Life is a journey, we all have different paths. Some cross and some don't. It's the same thing with idea's, thoughts, and theory's. Everybody will react to different situations in different ways. I respect people like you Lex that put yourself out there for the World to see. You have every right, just like each and every one of us to voice his/her own opinions regarding any subject or topic we choose. No matter what anyone thinks. We all have little things each and every one of us can contribute to the world, or to this website. What some people fail to realize on this website (and others), is there are so many different roads and path's in the RPD. Some of us are more traditionalists while other's are much more loose in their interpretations. When I posted about the dog food. To be honest I was curious, and wanted to know more about it. I wanted to get more organ meats, marrow, and other nutritious fats into my diet. But, I was also open minded too. Maybe that's a trait that is slowly fading? Well, I'm glad I reached out, and I'm glad you decided to share some of your knowledge with me. Thank you again! Maybe the dog food is a little too much of a step for me at this stage. But, I learned about the "Primal Beef" package.  You know something, that was exactly what I was looking for. I appreciate you sharing that information with me. I took your information, and applied it to my own program to enhance it. I think we can learn so much from each other on this website, through our diets, choices, and experiences. I really enjoy being on this website, there are a lot of free thinkers here.

Eating grains, dairy, ect is cultural. Just like eating the SAD diet. If you grow up eating SAD, you don't question it's merit until down the road when you start having health issues. Look at all of us? I bet most, if not all of us didn't come from a background of healthy nourishing foods growing up. The American food pyramid is a Joke! No wonder obesity rates are so high, cancer rates are increasing, diabetes is growing at an alarming rate.

She's been here a while

I noticed on her profile, she's been a member for a while now. That's what makes it so strange. That's why I posted what I did.

Well, there's plenty of ex-vegitarians on this site. That's for sure.

What happened Noel? Your message is hard to make head or tails out of it? Haven't you been reading the information on this website? There's some great info out there, but you have to read it and apply it. What's the real problem? I suggest next time you post, slow down and give more details about what happened, and why do did what you did? You have to be disciplined on this diet! Why would you ingest certain foods you have problems/issues with? I'll be honest with you, this is one of the simplest, nourishing, healing diets out there. I agree with joe, it sounds like you have some emotional issues. Don't blame your diet, or the foods you ingest. Get to the real core, on why you had a "break-down".

I'm trying to find the best way to increase absorption of animal fats into my skin.

Seriously, try eating them. Animal fats will work wonders for you better internally than externally (grass fed of course). If you want to use an animal fat for your skin. I recommend Goat Milk Soap. That's what I use.
