Hot Topics / Re: Goji Berries
« on: March 01, 2012, 08:33:10 pm »
I use dried goiji berries regularly. The give me an instant mental energy boost. Not the physical sugar boost you get from most fruit. My mind is noticeable sharper/more focussed. I just bought a goji shrup and planted it in my garden last week. The are supposed to grow very well were I live. So i hope to have fesh goji berries in oktober this year.

I think berries in general are beneficial fruits. I bought 20 berry shrubs; several ribes species, goji, blueberry, aronia, honeysuckle, blackberry, buckthorn. All of them went in the garden last week. next year they should all start to produce fruits, can't wait!!

I tend to agree with tyler there has got to be some fraud going on. If not than oh my god that's the most vibrant healthy young looking 70 yo ever! If she started that amazing homegrown diet  at age 15 or so i might be tempted to believe it but she started at 50.
honestly a lot of black people have great skin that doesn't show age
It isn't just good skin. Her figure is very good too. And her voice she sound like a 40yo at the most.

Anyway good motivation to get my garden going.

milk, honey, butter, eggs milkshakes. They are very anabolic. Very high cal due to lots of fat. Good proteins and large insulin response due to the honey and milksugar. They are also the perfect post workout drink for the same reasons.

2x a week very intense but short weighttraining will make you gain that weight easily. and please ignore bmi.

in the wild canines bury part of their meat to dig it up later to eat. soil microbes will invest the meat. basicly its canine high meat.

Why would starch cause mucus but not sugar?

I actually also already have pastured butter, coconut milk and water, and Great Lakes gelatin and and started recently experimenting with them with no noticeable effects. I also sometimes have a cup of coffee in the morning. Instead of OJ, cooked tubers and table sugar, which all give me some negative effects, I eat raw fermented honey, carrots, parsnips and berries. So I'm already doing something very close to a Ray Peat diet.
Your re-introduced coffee in your diet after years of raw?? Brave! This stuff is addictive you know... I just cut it out completely and have a hard time keeping it out and I only drank 1 occasionally 2 cups a day.

Primal Diet / Re: custard
« on: February 28, 2012, 08:19:06 pm »
finally got my hands on some papayas and tried aajonuses custard recipe. This is the best thing I have tasted since going raw. 2 eggs, 4tbsp butter, quarter papaya, and 2 tbsp honey. I think it is actually the best thing i have tasted in my life.
I tried some similiar with pineapple. Also very good.

I would totally ignore BMI as it is ridiculus. bf% says way more. 150pounds(68kg) is pretty light so unless your are shorter than 1,75m and have very little muscle. I myself am 1,78m and weigh 99kg thats a BMI of 31. So according to the ignorant fools that designed the bmi index i'm not just fat I'm obese. However my bf is 12%. Is that obese? Off course not its in fact rather lean. I happen to have 30lbs more muscle than avarage.

So forget BMI and eat at least 2200kcal a day. The body cannot repair itself on a calorie deficit diet. Get healthy first and lean later!

Aren't you afraid for the glue in the cardboard? I would never compost paper. It has inkt, bleech and all other kinds of nasty stuff in it that i absolutely dont want im my compost. I use the compost for my veggie/berrie garden. No bleech in my food chain.

I'm thinking of raising some chicken for both eggs and meat but was still trying to figure out how to ensure a balanged diet for them without spending to much. Your maggot thing might well be the solution! Thanks. Maybe we should start a "paleo" gardening/livestock thread.

Oh - please tell how you ferment ginger carrots! Do you mean you ferment ginger and carrots or is there something called a ginger carrot that I'm not familiar with?

A friend just brought me buy some of her home-made ginger beer. Yum. I'm going to have to learn how to make that. It's not really beer - more like fermented ginger, but I'm not complaining. ;)
I make ginger "beer" using water kefir grains. Its very simple water, sugar (i use sundried raw cane juice powder), lots of ginger juice and kefir grains. I often add some dried fruits as well. Very tasty beverage.

Even the example HIT_it_Raw gave of the person who sits on their ass and eats meat, fruit and honey and gets fat, I would still say is healthier than almost any "bodybuilder".

That fat paleo person will probably live longer and not be as likely to succumb to any weird diseases.
I fully agree. although I don't like using the word bodybuilder as it's synonomous with a steroid abusing, protein powder drink sipping lunatic. Most of them are of course but not all. there are a good bunch who live healthy don't do drugs and are just interested in building their body in a healthy natural way.

General Discussion / Re: Avocados and omegas
« on: February 27, 2012, 10:32:46 pm »
I eat from 300 to 600g of berries almost every day. Eating too much sweet fruit makes my skin itchy and inflamed. Havn't eaten veggies in ages, because the last time I had some veggie juice it went straight through figured my body doesn't need anything from them.

Having said that though, avocados are very different to other fruit and veg, so I don't think it is an indication for a need of more fruits and veg in general in my diet. Perhaps just more avocados.
all right I thought you were largely carnivoric. What berries do you eat and where do you get them?

I tend to binge on avocados every so often. ie. I will go without a single avocado for months then eat about 5 or 6 per day for a few days. The latest binge was very recently and to my surprise I noticed a significant improvement in my skin. Must be the vit E or smthn. I had never previously noticed this when eating just one or two avocados every day or every other day as a regular part of my diet.
Maybe that's a sign you need more fruit/veggies in your diet?

Mark scisson clearly doesn't have clue about exercise. According to that quote pp provided you will get big and strong to 80% of you max genetic potential just through diet... Really? Individual potential varies off course but it is almost always a lot larger than people think. Most people can achieve a very impressive physique with an apropiate exercises regiment and a half decent diet.

Rest (sleep) is at least 50% of the results, no amount of nutrition and/or exercises will produce any results without rest.

So according to MS, on avarage, bodybuilders wil only have a 20% physical advantage over the general populations whereas primal/paleo dieters wil have an 80% physical advantage. That would probably mean that this forum houses the world best physiques.

Spent your days sitting on your ass eating large quantities of fat, meat and fruit/honey(thus paleo) and you will get fat. Spent them eating low cal SAD and exercise heavy and you will get lean/muscular. This obviously has very little to do with health. Stress the body into adaptation by means of exercises and the body will, if resources can be spent without dying and rest is provided, adapt.

Oh and Phil results from exercise do not depent upon time spent but rather on effort spent.

I have similar issues with anger/aggression.  Fat works very well for me.  Magnesium and calcium and mineral supplements in general work very well too.  Vitamin D also seems to really help.  Dark greens like spinach, and scallops are extremely helpful too. 
yeah i noticed that about dark greens too. i drink green veggie juice daily and it keep me very well balanced especially with the large quantaties of butter. never noticed much improvment from vit D but i do recognise its importance. Either i dont take enough or i already have adequate levels from all the raw grass fed milk(plain and as kefir) i've been consuming last year. ought to have my blood levels checked one day.

i usually take a mineral sup ones a day with a green juice, some butter and my vit d. that way i have all the factors needed to utilize them together. I sometimes eat egg shell as well. oh and i make 1or2 bone broths a week. those really helped my teeth sensitivity clear away.

Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / Re: Loose stools from Lex-style diet?

I have the same preference for suet. I eat marrow(dry kind) but don't enjoy it. The soft kind I find rather disgusting.

The huge amount of salt you eat is probably  the problem. Salt pulls water into the intestines. I would dramatically reduce or preferably remove it entirely for a few days, see what happens. I cannot garantee it will work off course but i'm fairly confident it will.

I know you have been eating that much salt for longer. I think your body absorbed the salt before. You're body has had so much that at some point it stopped absorbing the salt leaving it in the intestines where it started pulling water.

Some pretty harsh discussions over there. I just read through the 80/10/10 topic on Seems like its a no-win argument Cherimoya most posters there have already made up their mind. They just keep repeating veg mantra's.

I have a history of very strong emotion swings. I used to get very agressive very easily. When I ditched grains and went rpd this got a whole lot better. Last couple of months I upped my fat intake a lot and I'm very calm as a result. The more fat I eat the calmer/more relaxed I am. Last week I found a supply of raw butter (I used to eat marrow, suet and vco). As of this monday I've been experimenting with the primal diet and as a result my fat intake (especially butter) has increased once again. I've never felt so balanced calm and at the same time energetic!

Fat (especially butter) is a miracle for me. Wouldn't know what to do without it.

I only had raw fish from a sushi place. Is it safe to eat any salt and fresh water fish? Will I need to freeZe it first? My father in law goes fishing a lot and always catch tons of fishes. Mostly bass and rock cod. Are those safe to eat raw?  I bet fresh fish will taste the best.
If the places he caught them are clean they are safe to eat. freshwater predators my contain parasites. Opinions differ about those.

I agree regarding extremes. But if you eat heavy saturated animals fats on a regular basis its very likely that you get HUGE blood sugar spikes after eating carbs..
I never experienced any of that...
Genrally my diet is fat heavy with very little carbs. On workout days I eat lots of fruits to up my glycogen storage fore the workout to come. I get blood sugar spikes from sweetened beverages and cooked starch and know the feeling of huge energy spikes followed by lethargy very well. I never get these feeling from raw fruits.

Liver is very carb-rich.
very carb rich?? I would say somewhat carb rich at best. 4gr/100gr isn't that much.

For me carb sources are milk, honey, fruits, liver, vegetable juices. And rarely some nuts.

Detox is a funny word. It has been discussed here ad nauseum in different threads.

There is such a thing as a detox where you eat some crap for a long time and some of it sticks to your innards somewhere, for various reasons and then you consume something else or get off the sofa, or you "catch" a cold and suddenly all of that stuff gets disturbed, rather like a washing machine does to dirt. Then it all comes rushing out and during that rushing out, you feel very bad, then you feel better when it's out.

Unfortunately most people don't realize that, yes, you may be having a detox but it wasn't necessary to have it in the first place.

What you should do is figure out which foods agree with you. If you get a reaction that you don't like from a food that you eat regularly, try eliminating it from your diet for say a month and see how you feel. Then try eating it for awhile. If nothing changes from the stopping and then restarting then it is presumably safe.

Some foods may take a longer and some shorter.

For me (pasteurized dairy) the change was almost immediate and very powerful.
Suddenly, gas, bloating, backaches, prostate discomfort and urination problems, lethargy, and a host of other lactose intolerance issues vanished overnight. Then it was all back with the first glass of pasteurized dairy a month later.

Raw dairy is no problem. Heated honey is very bad news for me but raw is zero problem.

You can either experiment to find out or go to an Ayurvedic doctor to get a diagnosis of what foods are apropos for you. Some stuff is on the web however you should be careful with it.
I know about detoxes and how they manifest themselves. I also know how to test for allergies.

What I ment to ask whas do you still get detoxes say ones or twice a year. Even though your food is clean and healthy I think it is pretty much impossible to avoid any toxins in this world. Therefore one might expect a detox once in a while. The primal diet is very detoxifying. Aajonus reports detoxes from medecine taken as much as 20 years ago. He found traces of the medicines in the detox medium.

Wow, We were looking @ the Sunshine Coast a couple of weeks ago but couldn't find a dairy farmer. Bummer, we like it there. Vancouver Island has one source apparently but it is as you said 16 for 4 L.

We pay 8 for 4 L and 300. for 5 years. We get about 10 to 12 L per week.

We can make the cheese but our farmer makes very consistent and good cheese. So 20 litres of milk will make 1 L of cheese.

However having said that I can see why the high cost, as the oriental invasion has driven prices of land through the roof. Additionally farmland is rare in rain soaked mountains.  ;D
I feel sorry for you guys. milk is very cheap here. I get grassfed milk for 0,80euro/ltr. no additional payments. Holland should be a raw milk wonderland. we have an abundance of grasslands and cows. But it took me a full year to find a farmer who would sell me raw butter and no salt added raw cheese.
