Primal Diet / Re: 100% Primal Diet Bodybuilding
« on: May 15, 2012, 03:12:40 pm »
Primal diet. Though i don NOT consider myself to be a bodybuilder. The term bodybuilder is most often used to describe to mindless, drug addicted, genetic freaks that dominate that world nowadays.

I have been doing HIT for several years with rather good results. Since going primal i improved quite a bit. For those who can tollerate dairy without any problems(like me) the primal diet is probably the best for bodybuilding puposes. I'm 1,78mtr and 99Kg at 12%bodyfat. I've been leaner and can be again without much effort but I feel healthier like this. I'm with AV on bodyfat, its necessary in our toxic world.

Thats great, its not getting sour nearly fast enough for my liking at this point. I havent had anything id call to sour yet so im looking forward to experiencing that.
You use kefir grains? if not than its just sour milk. Nothing wrong with that. But it is not the same as kefir.

I hope cardboard still is like that but most cardboard I see over here is glued with synthetic glue. I'm sure the small beings of our world can handle a lot of bad things but cl is toxic in just about every molecular structure you can restructure it in. So I'm still sceptical on that one. Fungi might have a shot at that.

I can tell your in love with real soil like I am. A living soil is amazing it looks alive constantly being shifted by bacterial and fungal activity as well as loads of worm tiling the soil for you.

are you familiar with bionomic gardening? I got an ebook about that if your interested

Not much time for posting here. Watt little time I have I spent in my garden trying to make my ambitious schedule. This is my first year of real gardening. Before I just had a balcony. since last fall I got my first garden. I worked the ground in fall and let the beds rest/build over the winter. My ground us already surprisingly alive for a first year. I'm planting and sowing lots of stuff right now. This year I'm aiming to keep building my soil

Primal Diet / Re: Juicing in Primal Diet

I'm currently experimenting with the pd. I tried doing the diet without juices and honey for a few Weeks. I suffered. Low energy hard to get out of bed lots of cravings for thing I didn't eat for years (like grains). I recently reintroduced juices and felt good again after a few days. I think I need the enzymes and possibly the magnesium. green juice is the best way to start your day IMO. I didn't had access to raw honey for a wile which is why I didn't east that. I noticed that honey and milk 100% control cravings for bad stuff. Possible its the energy and nutrient density of those foods that I really need. I'm very physically active so need lots of nutrients. The green juices may serve a similar thing

Dairy is always highest in minerals and vitamins in spring due to cows eating fresh fast growing grasses. Weston price also specially praised this dairy. I also find myself drinking lots of milk and eating tons of butter this spring.some days I don't feel like eating meat and I live on just milk kefir eggs cheese and green juices. Feel perfectly fine doing that.

A reliable US source for water kefir grains, AKA ginger plant, is Marilyn Kefirlady:
so your saying water kefir is the same as this ginger plant Dorothy talked about? Bummer I would have liked another pet/bug

Really makes me wonder though about that "ginger plant" they talk about though and what it is. They say most of them died in WW2 - kinda brings up images of scobies or plants carrying guns and going off to war doesn't it? I guess keeping things like starters alive wasn't exactly a priority in Europe at the time. I'm wondering if real ginger beer isn't a whole different animal like the difference between kefir and plain old fermented milk would be. It probably had its very own distinct set of bacteria and yeast combo and hence it's very own flavor.

I might try to hunt one down --- as if I need any more "pets" in my kitchen.  ;)
I didn't knew about ginger "plants" now I got to have one :-) I had a few organic peers starting to rot so instead of throwing them on the compost pile I used them to make a kind of peer cider. cut them in small pieces added water kefir grains and a pinch of sugar. Fermented 48hrs then sieved and fermented another 48 hrs in a closed glass bottle. very nice sparkling cider. Felt like it had a high percentage of alcohol. Not my healthiest brew but certainly one of the most enjoyable.

Hit - I thought ginger beer you had to have a starter - like making sourdough starter you can make one using commercial yeast or get a starter from someone called a ginger plant that is a lot like a scoby. I put ginger in my kombucha all the time - actually the best why I've found is to just put some ginger tincture into the kombucha. Putting ginger in kefir might perhaps even make me like kefir - ginger is that good.  ;)
Hi Dorothy. I use the kefir grains intead of a starter. Commercial yeast starters are refined cultures with just one type of yeast. The same aplies to bakers yeast. Kefir grains are a natural symbiosis between some 50 different strains of lacto bateria and yeasts. A natural sourdough is also a symbiosis between lots of different yeast.

I here you on the ginger I love it too. very high energy stuff!

Except when someone truly gets all their liquids from milk and juices and includes other sodium-veg/fruits, they would probably need salts.
Not true. I drink plenty of plain water along with raw milk kefir and some juices(less and less these days) never felt the need the supplement with salt. I still have high quality celtic sea salt and pink himalayan salt from before i started rpd. They used to help me quite a bit. since going raw i don't need them anymore. Recently i experimented with sole (saturated himalaya salt solution) taking half a teaspoon in a large glass of water before breakfast. I got headaches from it so discontinued that practice. In fact i noticed AV being right about the connection between salt and headaches. whenever i eat out in restaurants i get headaches afterward due to the huge amounts of salt they put on everything.

Whatever the case, salt is unnecessary when there are far healthier natural salts in meat/blood etc. already.
Yes I fully agree. I never eat salt.

The above points have already been raised before on this forum many times. The only thing re the above that I object to is the issue of salt. Actually, salt-intake was nonexistent in palaeo times as salt-mines are needed, and those require a settled civilisation.
except at the coast where salt deposits are readily available

That's like saying that if cars were built to run on gasoline, which we know they are, there is no possible fuel mixture that could work better, and that if you are designing new fuel you have to somehow link it to the traditional fuel used before
Although I agree with the general point you are trying to make I think thats an extremely bad example. When designing an engine the fuel to be used is the primary factor to be considered. An engine designed to run on gasoline will not nessecarely only run on gasoline but its output efficiency will be highest on gasoline. If one want's a simular (but not equal) engine to run equally well on say ethanol things like compression ratio, fuel air factors need to be adjusted. In fact you would have to rebuild most of the engine. Therefore i think your example doesn't hold much merit.

(human)Evolution didn't design anything for any one fuel. It merely preserves mutations and species that are able to use the available fuel(of different kinds) as efficiently as possible whilst still mantaining the abilty to compete with their enviremont. So rather than being designed for one particular fuel we are in fact adapted to use the broadest possible range of fuels.

^How is your cats health?  I would think an all meat diet would totally change their demeanor, appearance, and energy.  My cat is at least eating "grain-free" catfood which isn't great, but I feed her meat and raw ground turkey whenever possible.  The other person who takes care of her, can't really be taught about the raw food world, and instead follows the vet's protocol.  My cat won't eat high meat, and will only eat ground turkey.  But eating more meat, and less catfood, I notice there's a big difference.
He's healthy. Its a bengal F3 meaning his grandfather was a  Asian Leopard Cat so he's a bit closer to a natural race than most cats. When i got him he was 8 months old and used to eating dry cat food. it took a few days for him to get used to an all meat diet. In the beginning when i gave him some dry cat food that i got free with the cat he would attack it as if craving it. Now when i give it to him he just ignores it(even when hungry) doesn't see it as food anymore.

He's very active, dominant(towards other cats) and strong. Hunts/jumps anything that moves outside.

My cat eats high meat without any reaction at all. I fed him my high meat before I tried it myself. Had my cat rejected the high meat I don't think i would have eaten it myself.

My cat is 100% on raw meat, organs and fat (and the occasional few drops of raw kefir). When i gave him a piece of slimy high meat he just sniffed it and ate it straight away. No noticeable difference with regular meat.

If i give him something new he has never had before say chicken instead of beef their is a clear testing procedure. First sniff, then lick, then wait a bit. Then take in the mouth and spit out again, wait a bit. Then chew and spit out again, again waiting a while. Then eat a little piece and wait an hour or so. Then and then only he will eat the rest. If anywhere along this testing procedure he notices something wrong he won't touch it again. The fact that he ate the beef high meat straight away after just sniffing it means he doesn't think it's too different from regular beef

I agree that animal fats seem to be the most important factor. Personally i find raw dairy is especially good when being exposed to extreme amount of sunrays. Like being out on or near the water whole days wearing just swimming shorts.

I have a very pale skin, and every summer I always get burnt in my face. It's only my face. I get very red, and then it disappears and my skin is pale again, and then I get burnt again. So I can't be out in the sun for very long, and I try to avoid it for the most, though I know that sunlight is healthy. I used to use sunblockers, but they didn't work very well, and I don't want them because they are not healthy. I have started eating some raw food, but i'm not yet 100% raw paleo, but I will be. Do you think it will help my skin to tan? Does anybody know about that?
I have a very light skin as well being blond haired, blue eyed. Used to get sunburn very easily. I would always burn at least ones a year in the spring. Since going raw I tan easily and never get sunburn. Where i used to need a lot of suncream to prevend sunburn i now can easily remain in the summer sun whole days without any problems.

also I noticed i do not get as pale in winter as i used to get.

If one is concerned about safety I would think that going somewhat easy on the weight and focusing on proper technique would indeed be a safe way to start out, as your gym apparently advised.
And anyone with at least some common sense could have figured out

I'm curious, is there anyone on here who knows from experience the effects of taking HGH, or some kind of anabolic steroid, and compared it to RPD?  Despite it being synthetic, you'd still probably see better results from steroids than just RPD. 
Yeah sure real great results; shrinking testikels, ruined kidness/liver, extreme agression, spontanious growth of tissue where it doesn't belong.

I have no personal experience with any of them and would avoid them like the plague. I think in general the results are over estimated and the side effects severely underestimated. Tons of people are taking steriods, some of them are genetic freaks that would have been huge, if they exercised heavy, anyway. There are however plenty of great physiques from the past when far fewer people exercised with weights and steroid and other such crap had yet to be invented. Bob Hoffman and Bill Pearl being only two of them. And then there are much older examples to be admired carved from stone by ancient sculptors. Thousands of years ago such man existed because otherwise those sculptors would not have known how to carve such statue, it not being possible to predict how a very large men would look like without having ever seen one. Muscular shapes change when they get bigger.

If you are considering taking any such synthetic aids consider the above. Train hard, very hard and you will get as big as your genetics allow for without destroying your body/mind in the process.

Where did you get hold of fresh meat?
on a farm I buy my milk. They normally sell only frozen but they made an exception for me. If your I interested pm me. They only slaughter one every 2 months or so.

...more often I hear nutrition authors pointing out that most people are mg. deficient and rarely hear them mention ca. deficiency, and mainly due to the ease of finding ca. in the foods we eat.
And because it is known that most soils nowadays are Mg deficient.

I have ate mouthfuls of high meat about 50 times now, and I've observed that doing it three times a day actually makes me more tired, doing it once every three days seems to have the best effect, but I usually have a little once a day.  I agree that it gives a short, mild, high and sense of knowing who you are. 

It's no cure for chronic depression.  Why would Mr. Vonderplantiz claim that his "resolves" chronic depression?
I think thats a bit to much high meat. How old was yours, what did you make it of and how was the taste/texture/appearance?

Please let us know what 'results' you might experience from using it. 
I had 4 pieces (about a cubic cm each) of the high meat last night. I ate it before diner on an empty stomach because i didn't wanted to spoil the effect by mixing it with other foods. I did wash it down with some water with lemon juice. First observation: It's not so bad the taste is a bit cheesy not very pleasant but certanly not as repulsive thoughd it would be.

I was a little bit highish and a little wired up nothing dramatic though. I expected a bit more to be honest. It very quickly went away. Didn't noticed anything else, yet. Havent had a bowel movement yet so might notice something there later on.

The high meat was about 8 weeks old and pretty slimy. I will try a bit more next week.

Kidney problems linked with excess protein intake may be linked to not being hydrated enough, with protein digestion requiring water.
Raw meat has quite a lot of water in it. Eating cooked meat makes me crave lots of water whereas raw meat makes me feel hydrated.

Most (if not all) research done on kidney damage from exces proteins are from cooked food sources. Cooked protein rich(animal) produce also have the highest level heat created toxins so imo it is very likely that those kidney problems are not from the protein per se but more from a lot of unwanted byproducts. 5% cals from prot would mean eating either very much carbs (fruitarian style) very much fat or quite a lot of both. al these 3 give me problems. For now i will stay with my usual 25%prot 65-70 % fat and 5-10% carbs.
