General Discussion / Re: Bison/ELK/?
« on: July 24, 2012, 01:11:22 am »
Hey guys,

Probably found a clean local source for bison, and elk. 

Lucky bastard. I wish I could find these local in my area! Are they fresh frozen in packets, or fresh never frozen? I agree with jessica, these are leaner meats so add additional fat to your tastes.

Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / Re: Question Regarding Suet
« on: July 24, 2012, 01:00:11 am »
Well, others disagree, but I have  found that raw suet, if dried enough, will last forever, with just the surface turning green/blue in colour from fungus.

I asked the people who I bought it from, and they told me it would last a week in the fridge, and up to a year in the freezer. I just wanted to double check with you people first, before I penciled what they told me in stone.

. So perhaps we can agree to disagree on this.
Fair enough. I do respect your opinions on the subject matter, even if we don't see eye to eye on a few things. Interesting info regarding the tamarind.

I've heard "true banana's" have seeds in them. Also, that most banana's on the market in the US are hybrid's (seedless).

Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / Question Regarding Suet

Does anyone know the shelf life of Suet in the refrigerator, and in the freezer?

General Discussion / Re: Fresh fish storage

I have a suggestion. Why not filet the fish into bit size pieces, and the put them in a brine solution. That way the fish remains uncooked, is preserved, and the oils won't go/turn rancid. You could also substitute/replace salt with raw apple cider vinegar too.

My definition of a carnivore is an animal that eat's only flesh, unless there is no flesh to be had. How's that?

I wouldn't know where to start with you Max, sorry. I agree with GS, you sound a lot like Jordan Rubin of The Maker's Diet. That was my first thought after reading your initial post. The only advise I could give you is listen to your body, and stick to the foods that give you the least amount of trouble. Good Luck!

You thin he could have achieved similar or the same without the deception. You believe the means were based on greed over any other motivation and not him having a lofty ideal.

Hi Dorothy: Do I think he could have achieved a similar result without the deception? I guess we'll never know will we? But, why not! Why sell yourself out and deceive all the people who look up to you, and have faith in you? Not to mention the people (suckers) that pay his $85 annual membership fees on his sight! Don't you think they deserve a little honesty and integrity? I do, I would want to know what I'm buying and paying for. He's not a prophet, and he's not the "leader" in the RPD movement! I personally was never a big fan of his. I don't believe in his food choices/variations in "his" version of the RFD. I'm more of a traditionalist and a simplest in theory. I'm not here to play executioner! The thing you have to understand, is that he knew what he was doing all along. How arrogant is that? IMO, I feel like he used the diet as a platform for himself, and his self fulfilling desire for fame and fortune. How else would you explain his actions? If his "lofty ideal" was to deceive his followers, than he succeeded! What did he really accomplish? We'll he has a few books for sale, he charges a nice annual membership fee to his site, he get's even invited to be on the Dr's TV show to promote himself further. Granted he did expose people to the RFD, and the possibilities of what the diet can do for you. But, don't give him too much credit. The RFD is promoted by this website and it's members too, and it's free! Granted we don't have the platform he does, but our intentions are not to manipulate people and deceive them like he does. IMO, his goals were never the greater needs of the RFD, but in the greater needs for himself! The diet was alway's secondary to his own aspirations. Basically he used the diet as a stepping stone/platform to personal fame. How else would you explain his choices of deceit and manipulation?

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Re: Whats your view on Raw Honey
« on: July 23, 2012, 12:26:50 pm »
When I eat honey I usually eat a whole jar (450g) within 5 minutes. Same goes for honeycomb.

WOW, talk about a blood sugar spike. I admit honey has some addicting qualities (Sugar)! I wonder if you have a yeast imbalance or something? I used to eat honey consistently, granted not like you though. I feel, and this is JMO here. If I'm going to eat honey, I'm only going to eat Raw Manuka Honey UMF (there are different potencies, the higher the number the more potent it is) from New Zealand. It has powerful anti-bacterial properties. Google it! Once you try it, you'll never go back! It's the only brand of Honey that I would use personally!

WOW! I alway's thought a Carnivore was an animal that eats "only" flesh. But, from what I'm  hearing there is no such animal, that eats 100% flesh. Is that right? So what defines a Carnivore? The amount/percentage of meat in it's diet?

Hi eveheart, when you mean soaking. Do you mean soaking in a saltwater solution in a way of preserving it, or preparing it (before you eat it)?

« on: July 23, 2012, 11:36:20 am »
The best omega 3 oil is Krill Oil. It's much easier absorbed in our systems, and much more bioavailable than fish oil. Google it, and do your own research. You'll find there's nothing to it's equal!

What about tamarind? That's a legume; do you consider eating that to also be sacrilegious?

Yes I do. Legume's do not belong in the RPD either. I was surprised you brought something so elementary to the forum as that. You should know legume's are off limits.

What about tamarind? That's a legume; do you consider eating that to also be sacrilegious? I don't doubt that it was done with some humor, yet I think we might be better served if we disposed of using the term "sacrilege" in reference to our dietary habits. What say let's leave that to the most extreme of the vegans and other fanatics, eh?

Soy is an anti-nutrient! It has no place in human or animal nutrition (IMO). It's place does not belong in the RPD at all. But, that's just my opinion. If you want to use it, go right ahead, it won't offend me. I'm just saying. I encourage each and every one of you, to google and learn more about the detriments of soy.

Dorothy: I always though it was kind of weird that products like tofu turkey (tofurkey?) were created by vegetarians/vegans. Not to pick on them mind you. But, think about it. Your giving up eating meat, but you have an insatiable taste for meat products that needs to be quenched. So you trick your senses and brain, by using products that emulate and taste like your eating Flesh. Does that not strike you as being a bit odd?

The world population is getting out of control. We barely have enough food to feed everybody, even with grains. Scientist's are developing GMO crops to try and keep up, at the cost of nutrition and health. It seems like we sacrifice quality of life when population increases. The Earth is not set up to support this many people on the planet. The only immediate solution would be to dwindle the overall population gradually. The solution might be education. Seems like most if not all third world countries populations are exploding. They can't even take care of themselves, let alone practice birth control. The more educated countries are facing a leveling off, or a decrease of the overall population (Europe). When we talk about our ancestors (hunters and gathers). We have to put into terms their numbers, and the numbers of wild game that sustained them. They could only grow (in numbers) as much as their food supply allowed them too, or they would die off, or parish altogether. Mother nature had it's checks and balances. But, right now there's no easy solution in sight. Even the Chinese government have tried to control growth, by limiting how many kids a family could have. So they knew the problems that was on the horizon. There are no easy solutions and decisions! But, you have to remember traditions and way of life. Most people are not going to gravitate to the RPD. Our numbers are always going to be  much lower in the overall population numbers. Talk about checks and balances.

My issue with people like Aajonus, is his credibility as a person. I'm not justifying what he did, but I understand why he did it. IMO, this decision by him was based on financial reasons. His goal was to make a buck off his knowledge, and gain national attention. It worked! He was a guest on the Dr's, ect. He used a phony baloney degree, thinking that would get him the credibility that he needs to get noticed. It worked. When you play with fire, sometimes you get burned. IMO, he didn't need to lower his standards to this degree, to pass on his knowledge to others. He may not be a fake, but he surely is a lier. I'm not a big fan of Aajonus to be honest with you. He's not the reason I stared this diet. It's funny, because a lot of us know a lot about nutrition. But, you don't see us trying to be someone who we aren't! Ironically, he didn't need a degree to spread his knowledge and ideas. You don't need a degree to justify a diet or a way of life (IMO). Some of us here are free thinkers. Were not robots, to be trained by only one way of thinking. We don't like to be told to do this, or do that. We look for other alternatives, because we feel there is a much better solution out there. One thing I noticed about the members in this site/forum, we have a lot of free thinkers among us. I like that!

I just want to point out that just because a herb/spice is not  irradiated, doesn't mean it's raw. If it doesn't say raw, you have to assume it's not.

Great stuff! One of the all time great comedians!

Why don't you the change the same and section to "just" Carnivore? I don't think you need to add the "zero carb approach" tag after it. I think we all know what Carnivore means and stands for! JMHO

Display Your Culinary Creations / Re: success with fresh meat storage
« on: July 23, 2012, 12:30:02 am »
From my understanding most meat is frozen to some extent through transportation or storage. I don't have an issue with frozen meat as much as you do. I think if the meat is frozen properly, there is less damage to it nutritionally and taste wise. Most meat/exotic cuts you buy online ship frozen. The problem exists when if get's refrozen. I do have a problem with frozen/thawed fish at stores. It has a very mushy texture. Not very appealing, at least to me. I just purchased a pound of the best ground meat I ever had last week. Nice dark reddish color, mixed with raw beef liver (and yes it was frozen). It was so delicious and favorable. I always find it fascinating how/what others do to preserve or enhance raw meats! See what a little bit of research does on this site, and Walhalla!
