Do you think it is ok to eat fish?  What is the PUFA content like in fish?

Any thoughts on cold pressed avocado oil?  I think is very similar to cold pressed olive oil.

GS I am 24 years old.  I work second shift so I get home at about 1am every night.  I tried sleeping on the floor on my back but was unable to do it (I couldn't fall asleep).  My plan is to get home at night as soon as I can and right away get in bed and start reading (helps me sleep).  Then force myself up at 10am and get outside go for a walk or bike ride right away.

The problem I see with my plan is having the willpower to not just shut off my alarm and go back to bed.

Tomorrow, or today depending how you look at it, I am going to travel far and wide (about 50 miles) to a mythical land known as Lacrosse WI.  In this city I plan on buying a number of items that can be found no where in my home kingdom.  Items such as fresh raw grassfed beef, fresh sashimi grade fish, really raw honeycomb, toothpaste with no fluoride in it, and mead.  I don't plan on drinking often this summer but I want an alternative to beer and and hard liquor.  I will probably pick up a watermelon, some cucumbers, coconut water and some other fresh fruit as well.  But alas I feast alone.  :(

Hey all,

I've been sleeping 10-12 hours a night because I find it difficult to get up in the morning.  I am trying to break myself of this habit.  But on the other hand it might be what my body needs right now.  On the third hand, I want to be able to do more in the day.  And on the fourth hand, (everyone has four hands right?) am I just being lazy staying in bed all day?

Diet Note:  I've been sticking to raw pretty well, with a few weekend binges of SAD food and alcohol (red wine).

Questions, Comments, Concerns?

Ok, for the rest of May and all of June my diet will consist of this.  As much fruit as I desire each day, thought I will try to stay around 100 grams of carbs.  As much Raw Honey as I desire each day.  As many whole raw eggs as I desire each day.   At least one pound of raw meat a day, more if I want it.  And I will try and get some seafood once a week at least.  Plus organs and raw marrow whenever it pleases me.  In short, I am going to try and stay exclusively raw.  If I give into sugar or carb cravings it will be raw food (honey, fruit).  If I have cravings for fat I will eat raw fat, or marrow or eggs.

Side note: used to eat only egg yolks, but I like the taste better if I eat whole raw eggs.

There is a supplement called astaxanthin (derived from algae/often found in fish) which acts a good internal sunscreen. I have experienced this effect for myself. It took longer for my skin to burn or peel, even at doses like 1mg. However, I probably don't go out as much as you do, so people who really get out in the sun should take like 4-8mg. Just a suggestion.

Thank you for the suggestion.  But I am trying to avoid supplementation right now.

My burn has fully recovered and I think I will be more moderate with my sun exposure.  I hope to be very tan buy the end of the summer, but I don't want to burn again.

I'm better today than I was yesterday.  I think the bone marrow helped.  I don't recommend raw egg yolk though, because it is pretty messy.

I can't believe I was stupid enough to stay out in the sun that long.  

Oh well, live and learn and rub raw bone marrow on the burn.  Dude that rhymes!!!

I look like an Oompa Loompa except red instead of orange.  I haven't been this burnt since I was a little kid.  

I just rubbed bone marrow all over my body.  I will put more on before I go to bed.

Depending how this works, I will either stick with it or put on aloe tomorrow.  (I don't have any aloe right now).

Hey guys,

I was getting some good sun this afternoon, but I got too much.  I am pretty burnt. 

Any raw paleo cures for sunburn? 

I was thinking of rubbing raw bone marrow on my burn to see if it improves.

For now, I think I won't eat them.  Maybe when I've be completely raw for a long time I will try some fresh caught, fresh water fish.

General Discussion / Blood in marrow?

Hey I was getting some marrow out of the bone (the soft kind of marrow) and about 30% of the marrow was red and goupy.  Is it bad?  Should I eat it?

Raw trout, anyone eat it?  Opinions?

My stepdad caught 10 trout today in a pond not far from my parents house.  I live in Wisconsin, I think the ponds and streams in the area are clean, but I don't know for sure.

What's everyones take on Raw fresh water fish?

I haven't tried kidneys yet because I heard heart was the easiest organ to adapt to (Taste Wise).  I have some (from Slankers) and will try them sometime within the next few weeks.

I am going to try and get more organs next time I get a side of beef from my local supplier.  Last time I only got heart and liver.  Because that is what they offered and I didn't ask for the other organs.  Next time I will ask for heart, liver, tongue and kidneys.  I will also ask if I can get the organs from the other cows they butchered.

Thank you both for the replies.

Tyler, how many grams of carbs do you eat a day currently?

Just got a really upset stomach about a half hour after eating a 1/2 pound of heart.

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / 1 Fruit a day.
« on: May 06, 2011, 03:07:40 am »
Hello all,

I was interested if anyone out there just eats 1 fruit a day for carbs?

What do people consider LC compared to VLC?

For those that are VLC, how many carbs do you eat a day?  Do you eat carbs every day?  How many carbs in a week?  and What is your source of carbs?

I had some heart meat yesterday.  It tasted fine.  Did I adapt that fast?

The first heart I had was from Slankers.  I thawed it out, and I didn't like it too much.  The second heart I had was from a side of beef that I got a while ago.  That heart tasted fine, I liked it much better.  Both hearts were grassfed and they looked comparable.  Any thoughts?

Also (on an unrelated matter) I slipped in a muddy part of a trail while hiking.  I twisted my knee while falling down and it is pretty sore (the left side of my left knee).  My plan is rest my knee for 3-7 days, walking minimally, besides at work.  Also to stick to my raw diet completely, to reduce inflammation and promote healing.  Hopefully it is better within the week and I can get back to my normal routine.

I would say sprints and sprints up a hill would be compatible with weightlifting.

I forgot to mention that I ate my first Raw beef heart last week.  It wasn't bad, but I didn't like the taste as much as my muscle meats, I am sure my taste buds will adjust in time.

I also ate a tongue last week and I liked that a bit better than heart, but not as much as my muscle meats.

This week I've been eating around 2lbs of meat per day, plus one fruit, plus 4-8 egg yolks.  Today I am eating 1 pound of hamburger, 1 pound of heart, 1 apple, 2 marrow bones, and 4 egg yolks.

Thank god for the sun.  It is finally shinning and warm in Wisconsin.  Tomorrow's forecast, rain.

Hey Larry, welcome to the forum.

I am new here too, I don't think I could stick to raw without the forum.

I've heard of Tim Ferris and his books, they sound like interesting reads.

I am thinking of tweaking Tim's ideas and making a raw paleo version of it - w/o legumes or the processed cheat day shit.  I am planning on avoiding all fruits for the 6 days and then having my cheat day with an abundance of various fruits, raw honey etc.

Just wondering if any of you have explored any of his ideas.

I would say go for it.  Try and do your experiment as scientifically as possible (limiting variables).  And keep us updated on the forum about your results.

Hey all,

It has been a while again since I posted.  I am still trying to figure out what works best for me (how much meat and fat and fruits each day).  Also I have cheated a lot lately and that is something I am trying really hard to get away from.  What's happened is I go off this way of eating for a day or something, when I go see family or friends, then it becomes hard for me to get back to all raw eating.  It usually takes a couple days of eating raw and cooked before I am all raw again.

I think part of this had to do with me not getting enough raw food when I ate raw.  One pound of raw grassfed hamburger plus some egg yolks plus some fruit is not enough to sustain me for a day.  So when I went off my Raw WOE, my body desperately craved calories and I would stuff myself with junk SAD food.

My new experiment is to try and eat around 2 pounds of meat/fat/organs ever day, with one piece of fruit.
