General Discussion / Re: Most ideal coconut oil??
« on: January 22, 2014, 04:46:08 pm »
What is the most ideal coconut oil to consume??

Is it tropical traditions gold standard brand??

Or wilderness family naturals raw centrifuged oil?

Or something better??

Wilderness Family Naturals Raw Centrifuged oil by far. It taste better and in my opinion it's the purest EV coconut oil on the market! You can't find a more raw product out there. Buy a jar and try it. I bet you'll agree. Especially if you tried all the others. Huge difference. Just ask Paleo Phil, he'll tell you.

Alright guys, here's the question. Who eats raw pork?

I would if I could find a quality grass fed source in my area. The problem with most pork is that it is grain fed. Personally, I avoid it due to the abundance of quality grass fed beef and lamb choices available. Why eat something unless you know it is 100% wild or pasture raised?

Personally, I thought the meat had too little taste for my palate.

I agree with you on that regard! I thought the meat was rather bland too. I think it's because there is a lack of fat. I asked the Butcher over at Sprouts about the content of fat in the meat, and he told me it was very lean (90/10). I think it's good quality, but I stay away from it due to the lack of fat in the meat. I found a much better source.  :)

General Discussion / Re: Can we do without vegetables/greens?
« on: October 24, 2012, 04:14:39 pm »
It seems many people on this forum do not eat much vegetables/greens. That goes against the popular diet recommendations which do have the support of much scientific research. 

Does animal food have all the nutrients that are in vegetables/greens? What about chlorophyll?

Joy that is a great  question. IMO, I believe it's true. All necessary nutrients start with algae or grasses. In this RAW MEAT Diet, all of our nutrients are supplied by pastured raised or wild game. Vegetables and fruits were eaten in limited quantities by our ancestors. Animal protein and fat was the main source of energy and vitality (it still is). I've been eating nothing but paster feed non frozen meat for over 5 months and i'm getting stronger and stronger by the DAY! I have no desires for sugar or fruits at all! The more fat I eat, the better! This Raw Foods Animal Diet is the best diet that's out there! If you don't eat RAW Animal Protein, you're missing out. This is Raw Paleo, not  RAW Vegetarian. I don't understand people that land on this site and don't consume raw meats. I think that's WEIRD!!!!!!!!!!!!

My family eats a modern diet and to provide them with better nutrition I got into a raw organic milk scheme where I needed to pick up 5 liters per week. My son loved the raw milk but he only consumed 2~3 liters per week, and the rest of the family didn't like it. Since my aim has been to be RP I decided not to have milk myself and so cancelled the raw supply and now buy just supermarket milk for the family.

Now I am wondering if a better idea would be to go back on the raw milk scheme to help my son, and use the excess to make yogurt for myself. Although my body seems to hate sugars and starches, milk does not seem to be a problem for me. This would provide me with more variety while still being living food.

What do you think?

ALIVE, you can't save anybody who doesn't want to save themselves. Even if it's in your own family. Let them make their own decisions, and let them learn for themselves. I know its hard. But, you can't force feed info to someone who is not listening. Don't worry about them, just worry about you! Hopefully they learn a thing or two from you! That's all you can do. Maybe one of these days they will come around? Everybody is on their own journey. Your journey has taken you here. It's OK if their Journey has a different path. Let them go. Preaching never helps. But, practicing what you preach can change people's perceptions. Keep doing what you're doing! You're setting an example if you know it or not.

Health / Re: Enzymes
« on: October 23, 2012, 04:39:44 pm »
I heard that cooking destroys enzymes and usually the whole enzyme argument is the main basis of raw veganism -> which translates over to raw paleo. Anyone support this? I kind've do with all the enzyme therapy out there.

Moreso, has anyone noticed a digestion improvement with all the raw paleo foods they've eaten?

Your body craves and needs Raw food! It's designed to run and thrive on Raw food. Look at our society, and tell me we don't have heath issues? If you want change, you have to change! Change only happens, if YOU change you're thinking and actions! When YOU take a step, that's change.

Hi everyone. The farm I get food from has duck eggs and chicken eggs, both pastured and fed scraps like raw pork and beef. The chicken eggs are fertile, I'm not sure about the duck eggs.

Would you guys consider the duck eggs a better choice for eating raw? They're a little more expensive.

What are your opinions?

They're both fine! Like Dorothy said, Duck eggs are richer and fattier. There bigger! As long as they are Pastured your good! Enjoy! Don't worry if one is better than the other. Just eat them  (Raw of Course)! Anything is better than REGULAR grain feed eggs. That's all you have to remember!

Hey guys,
 Do we think it is safe to eat raw/rare? 

I thought you ate raw meats like the rest of us? Hey, it's OK! I've been eating exclusively RAW meat for over 5 months now, and I'm still kicking. Don't be afraid of it bro. If you need any encouragement or advice PM me. To everybody else out there, eating RAW is SAFE! Just make sure you trust and follow your instincts! Know and trust your sources! I eat ALL of my meats RAW. Not rare, or God forbid cooked. Don't be afraid. We have been programed to the Dangers of eating raw meat. It's all Bogus! If you want your health back, than make the change. If not, than don't waste your time on this site because we can't help you. You need a little faith people! You must believe and practice what you preach. If it's Raw or Not! Joe, take the step. You know you want too, that's why you're here on this website. Eating raw meat should not be a FEAR! Take it from me.

I've been sprinkling it on my food because my body likes it and wondering if there was something wrong with me. Looks like my body just knows better than the government. ;)
Great Quote Dorothy! I got a chuckle from that one. It makes you wonder who the FDA is working for? I thought they were suppose to protect us, instead of hindering us! It's scary if you believe everything that's out there! Thank God for free thinkers in this world. Seems like we're being fed more propaganda from our Government everyday.

Salt is part of the our diet. I never measure how much salt I use per day. It's always done by taste. I use Himalayan Salt and I buy it by the bag. I never bought into the hype that salt was bad for us. Now, processed salt with all the minerals taken out, then add  back inorganic Iodine. That can't be all that healthy for us. Natural unprocessed Salt is the best option. Very interesting video PaleoPhil. Thanks for posting.

That whipping results in a lot of AGEs as far as I know. I'd just stir it with a spoon, it will anyway melt.

I found this info on the website below. The testing for AGES was flawed, check it out. The below quote was from the author. For a full accounting click on the link below.

"So what's the true CML content of butter as measured by mass spetrometry?  A study published last year showed that whole milk contains 40% more CML than butter.  Wow, big difference, huh? 

Which do you believe?  The immunoassays that say butter has 5,000 times more CML than whole milk?  Or the mass spectrometry that says whole milk, which has more precursors, has 40% more CML than butter?

The same study found that evaporation of milk increased AGEs 10-fold, and that evaporated milk and various types of bread crust all had about 10 times the AGE content of butter and over five times the AGE content of beef.  Boiling beef increased the AGE content 7-fold, while frying the beef increased the AGE content 15-fold.

In addition to more posts on honey, fructose, and fatty liver, expect lots more information on AGEs in the coming months.

In the meantime, enjoy your butter!  Yum. :)"

When faced with a choice I choose food in the following order:

Red meat grass-fed animals first
Red meat grain finished animals next
Pork next
Poultry next
Fish and eggs last

I agree with you on fish. I find it very unsatisfactory as far as curbing my appetite. I tend to eat a lot of it, when I do (which is very rare these days). But, it doesn't satisfy like you said. It digests way too fast for me at least. I find I have the same results with eggs. Poultry, doesn't have any interest with me due to the lack of quality pasture raised meat. Plus, it doesn't have the same nutrient profile as pasture raised red meat. So why bother. I haven't had pork yet. I haven't found any that are true pasture raised (fresh). I know I can find them online. But, I don't know if it's worth the bother to be quite honest with you.
I was a little surprised that you ranked grain finished meat second. I guess that show's how little interest you have with the following choices. I'm sure it would only be an option, if you had a limited supply of grass fed beef. Would that be the same for organ meat's also? I agree with you about keeping  things simple. I'm actually been 95+% Carnivore for going on three month's now. I seem to be getting stronger and stronger so far, and it's kept my appetite in check. I'm not too technical as some of the others on this site with keeping track of percentages. But, my body seems to function better with a high intake of animal fats. I try to get everything as fresh as I can. I'm currently avoiding frozen meats for now. What's your viewpoint on fresh vs. frozen? I read something on the site a about the advantages of fresh meats over frozen. I'm curious on what your intake or views are on the subject.

I haven't really mentioned this much, but I've sort of been eating more of a SAD diet than a raw paleo diet.
What a surprise. Most people in this forum are in your shoes. No wonder their are so many people in need of help with their issues.

My finances are rather prohibitive, I've recently downgraded from my previous job. So I'm eating one, maybe two raw paleo meals daily tops. Unlike when I had a good amount of income and every meal was raw. :(
We don't need to know your finances, or the reason you do what you do. That's your personal business. Sounds more like an excuse to me. The RPD is not that expensive to follow. Unless you are accustomed to eating cup of noodle soup every day. Do you think we all eat filet minion every meal? This diet is cheaper then being on the SAD diet! Make better food choices, and you won't have to switch back and fourth.

What are your takes on raw dairy?
None Paleo. If your going to eat dairy, at least stick to raw cream or butter. JMO

Please share your experiences eating aloe vera gel? aloe vera juice?

Useless! Did nothing for me.

This is just my 2 cents. I think your going to continue to have trouble keeping weight on, or gaining weight as long as you continue to breast feed. Your baby is getting more and more of your nutrients every single day. Shouldn't your baby be on solid foods already? Remember, what you feed yourself is what your baby is getting as nutrients. I hope you're getting a varied/balanced diet, for your child's sake. I bet once you stop nursing, you will see yourself get stronger and stronger. You don't sound so vibrant and healthy right now.

General Discussion / Re: Organic 100% grass-fed beef from Uruguay?
« on: August 30, 2012, 03:47:41 am »

Chris that depends on the beef cuts.  Some are very lean and some are fatty. Sprouts does not have every cut available on any given day. I guess they do not yet have as many customers for grass-fed beef as WF stores do.  When more people find out about their good Uruguay beef, maybe they will have more cuts available.
I was referring to the ground beef. I guess I should have clarified that, sorry. Your right they have a few different cuts to select from. I wish they had more. What can you do?

« on: August 27, 2012, 03:37:05 pm »
At a local Sprouts grocer I found "organic 100% grass-fed beef" from Uruguay.  I was told that the Uruguay beef has never been frozen and is vaccum-sealed and it takes only one day to transport it from Uruguay to my city Austin.   Does anyone know of any objections against beef from Uruguay?  It is less expensive than the grass-fed beef sold at my local Whole Foods stores. (WF said they get their beef from Texan farms.)   So if the Uruguay beef is good  I plan to buy at Sprouts instead of at WF from now on.
Hi Joy,
Your correct about it not being frozen and it's transit time. I've actually picked up some from Sprouts, and I have to say, it's some of the best Organic Grass Fed Beef I've had so far. Plus it's fresh! I like it much better than WF (which is not Organic BTW). I've talked with a few butchers from Sprouts, and they have informed me that it's pretty Lean (90/10) approx. So you may want to add a little more fat, if thats your preference. BTW have you noticed how much Redder and Fresher the meat looks? Excellent Quality!

General Discussion / Re: Shelf Life of Bone Marrow?
« on: August 20, 2012, 03:56:46 am »
There is no whole foods very close to me, but I once was able to stop by one on the way home from the beach (it is the closest whole foods and about an hour or two drive from home) and when I was there I bought some grass-fed marrow bones.  I'm pretty sure they were fresh never frozen, and cut up right when I bought them since the guy asked for a few minute before they could have the bones ready, so I figure they were cutting them right then and there.

The marrow was soft and creamy and reddish, and I don't remember how long I kept it in the bones for, but I remember I did at one point scrape out all the marrow and into a glass jar/bowl thing with a cover.  That marrow was the most delicious stuff I have ever eaten in my life, and I wish I could get it every single day.  I know I limited how much I could eat of it so that it would last me, and so I'm pretty sure it lasted me about a week kept fridgerated.

I've tried buying other marrow bones since then, but the only other grass-fed ones I can find are kept utterly frozen solid as rocks.  I don't know if it's the same soft marrow as I had before, since it's frozen completely hard, but I think it's more the other type of marrow.. and it's hardly appetizing at all, I try to leave it in the fridge so that it will soften and not be rock-hard-frozen, but then it starts to stink real bad after a couple days and I have to throw it away.  I haven't even eaten any of it.  I want the whole foods marrow I got before, again.
Thant's been my problem as we'll with marrow. I haven't found the soft fresh kind that everybody raves about. I can only get mine frozen, and when it thaws it's dry and resembles more like suet. WF selection in #4 and #5 meats has gradually declined in the past year or two. I can no longer get certain cuts anymore consistently fresh. Even the local farmers that sell grass fed meats @ farmers markets, all of their selection is frozen. I found a local rancher yesterday that can supply me with fresh cuts of meat. I'm going to ask him about including some marrow bones as well.


After reading his suggestion of saturation with BOD being effective I have drunk 4 liters of local Karikaas BOD yogurt this morning.
I have also inoculated diced fish and diced meat with this BOD yogurt to make BOD rich high meat  -d
Very interesting article. I had no idea about BOD until you posted this (thanks). I'm going to do some further research on the subject. Supplementing with the BOD bacteria could serve us all well. Great Stuff!

It's genetics and a clean diet. I've heard of people smoking tobacco for their whole lives with no issues or problems. Some people are predestined to certain things in their environment, that others aren't. Some things you just can't explain. If you or I ate what she did all those years, I doubt we'd have similar results. Good for her. She found a program that fits her needs, and stuck with it.

Health / Re: Happiness in Health
« on: August 17, 2012, 04:57:12 pm »
How many of you consider yourselves happy?
How many consider happiness part of health?
And how do you define happiness personally?

IMPO I believe health is the greatest gift that we can give ourselves. You can only achieve great health through proper nutrition. This diet involves/demands openness, patience, dedication, and will power. You can take this diet as far as you want to go with it, or as little as you want. But, you have to have direction and a plan, in order to achieve your desired results. In order to find enlightenment, you have to search for it first. It doesn't just fall into your lap, just because you eat some raw meat or raw fish. I believe that our environment, the choices we make in our lives, and the souls that are embedded within us, control our tendencies/personalities more than nutrition does. Nutrition can give us all the nutrients our body needs to function properly. But, that won't guarantee happiness/enlightenment or total nirvana. That comes from within. By soul searching, following your heart, and using your brain. Nutrition is only one piece to the building block.

Happiness to me is excepting and loving myself for who I am. It's learning/sharing ideas with others. It's following the RPD, and interacting with members in this Forum. It's backpacking and riding my motorcycle. It's discovering new places and experiencing new things. It's learning about health and nutrition. It's spending time with my nieces and nephews. It's developing new relationships/friendships with people.
