The boiling was in the recipe, and you are right, that was before we went raw.

How long does it take shaking in a jar?

As I sad just curious no critism intended. By intense I mean percentage of momentairy ability. no doubt your workout are hard, probably even brutal. When you can do more than 20 reps you move towards aerobic exercise, you do not ask the muscle to perform near its peak performance. If you would the reps would be lower. Not asking a muscle to work within its reserve anaerobic ability means no growt stimulation because your muscle can easily do what you ask. Stil great cardio though thats what I meant.

I hate the mainstream 1muscle a day low intense workouts. As you could have seen in my post my workouts is full body very heavy very intense and very short. Try doing 8 exexises to complete muscular failure in 20min and you  know what I mean. This kind of workout stimulates all 3 kinds of condition: muscular strengt, cardiovascular condition, metabolic condition. No amound of work can substitute intensity.

Will try the milk honey thing. why boil the milk when making yoghurt? sure isnt raw anymore. I like my butter shaken in a jar so that takes somewhat longer.

Tuesday (April 12):

TG warm-up
light weight
150 push-ups
200 squats
1100 stairs

50 minutes.
Just curious. What's your goal with those workouts? They are nowhere near intense enough for muscular development so I gues you do them for cardio? or to burn callories?

awesome sound quite..massive
Yeah well...., not all of it is muscle. Only just went RPD. I'm nowhere near fat but not ripped either. RPD helps a lot however I should reduce my raw milk intake as it is fattening. My goal is ~200lbs, witout loosing muscle off course. To be reached in 2 months. Should be doable.

I'm trying to cut down my carbs slowly but still need quite a lot of carbs prior to working out otherwise truely intense exercise is impossible. Used to eat a large pasta dish for lunch than work out late afternoon. Now I eat ~500gr of grapes and an apple with 0,5ltr milk works for me. Non workout days are rather low carb ~50gr.

Our tapwater is groundwater which is pumped through the coastal sand-dunes to filter. Afterwards there is some additional filtering but not much.

My dairy was pasteurized too until recently when I went raw and discovered the amazing benefits of raw milk. Too bad all other types of raw dairy are illegal in the Netherlands. Made some yoghurt and butter myself but its so time consuming!

couldn't imagine breaking my fingernails on guitarstrings. Mine are pretty much indestructible, always have been even on sad. Use them very heavy for all kind of things like tightening screws. I've been a heavy dairy concuumer all my life so that might help, also the dutch tap water has a lot of calcium in it. I drink tap water freely because in my country they don't put chlorine or anything else in the water.

    Many women out of fear of using their vaginas for normal birth opt for prescheduled c/s's.  Yeah, they don't feel like giving birth, so they get delivery instead, kind of like ordering pizza.  I would get a c/s or not nurse if I had to, but that would be so highly unlikely (like 1 in ten billion).  Many do it solely because they want these things done for them.  Unfortunately I hear the anesthesia of c/s may disrupt nursing process at first.
where I live things haven't gone that crazy (I think). I believe most people in the netherlands are still giving birth the normal way. I was born at home with just my folks and a midwife present. I gues I should feel priviliged about that...

Has anyone out there actually benefited from taking standard mineral supplements?
I've been using "Lava oerlevenskracht" (basalt primal life force) minerals. Its a dutch product I think. Its made from vulcanic rock ground to the finest powder i've ever seen(powder-sugar like). Its very rich in Mg, Se, Ca & many more. Could post a pic of the chemical analysis later if you wish.

When I started using it I was eating a modified SAD => no grains except brown rice, lots of veggies, little meat, lots of butter, fish, tallow, lard, some fruit, yoghurt. It made al the difference to me. Instant results felt more energetic the first day.

When I started paleo I started using less. Recently when I went RPD I stopped using it altogether. This went ok at first because I got all the raw meat benefits. However lately my energy was down and I started using it again in small amounts. Same effects energy back feel great.

Maybe I should start eating more organ meat or start eating marrow. For now 1/4 teaspoon before breakfast. Or 1/4 teaspoon in a green smoothy, also helps to buffer the chemicals(if not organic) like AV uses clay.

If you feel like your doing everything right but lack energy I really recommend it. Just don't use it at night cause you won't sleep...

when I clic members and try to arrange them by country I get an error message

I say its enough!!

Totally with you on that one. The arrogance of some scientist is beyond my comprehension. If you do not feel like breastfeeding than maybe you should not feel like giving birth?

I feed a little bit of raw, unheated oats and millet to my otherwise grazing birds, but it has been very difficult to find unheated organic grain. It’s most of the times hot dried.

Francois, i've bought very cheap organic (spelt)grains in the netherlands. I assume they are hot dried too. However i use them for spelt-grass and have no problem with them. If they are able to sprout they are still raw. I'd say if those easy to get oats are able to sprout(easy test) their raw and therefore good enough to feed your chicken??

I did have major issue's with short intensive movement (30 min full body HIT-workout) when on low carb. On my strenght training days, once a week, I eat loads of grapes or pineapple with raw milk for 5-1 hours before my workout. Than fast 1 hour than hit the weights. This way I get just enough carbs to be able to perform but use most of them up in my workout.

No problem with endurance type training perhaps even better on LC

Just wondering... Do you do any kind of exercise? I know it probably seems like the last thing you want but  try working out very hard but brief on an empty stomach and than wait till the hunger (which will be there) is unbearable then eat till full. Might help your body to accept larger amounts of raw food. Also exercise stimulates the release growth hormone testosterone and other (metabolic) hormones.

first thing in the morning 0.5 ltr water + lemon juice(1 lemon) slihtly warm just above bodytemp.
wait half an hour 2-3 kiwi's chewing very wel to break the tiny seeds wait, and if necessary drink more warm water, till bowel movement.

Have had constipation issue's the first 18 years of my life and this never faled! No more constipation since cutting out grain and cooked pork years ago.

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately it's raw food I'm having trouble with, I find it hard to eat enough. So I suppose by that logic neither pancreas nor enzymes are worth spending money on.

Eat enough to do what? stay alive? maintain weight? gain weight?

I thought I had issue's with food quantities after seeing what some guys around her eat. You can see what I eat a day in the welcoming section. Its nowhere near as much as most here however I weigh 98kg at 1,78m (rather lean) and have no problem maintaining that weight while doing very heavy(and very short obviously) exercise.

After 2 weeks 90% raw I did have some discomfort eating cooked meat. Since using Enzyme caps whenever eating cooked I don't suffer anymore. Obviously I try to limit my exposure to cooked stuff. I'm 99% grain free for several years now an they do give me trouble with or without supplemented enzymes. Sprouted grains do not seem to harm me but I avoid them just in case!

100% Grasfed meat is very hard to find in NL
Raw milk is rather easy. Raw dairy is illegal however farmers are allowed to sell raw milk (just milk nothing else) at their farm. They do have to "warn" you about the "dangers"of raw milk consumption  ;) lol

Enzyme supplements are very usefull when eating cooked food. The upper part of the human stomach holds food for at least half an hour allowing the enzymes in food to start digestion. Raw food contains these enzymes cooked food does not. When eating cooked food it is a very good idea to supplement the lacking food-enzymes to help our body digest the food.

However pancreatic enzymes cannot work in the acidic enviremont of the stomach, in fact they are destroyed offering no benefits for digestion. Look for enzyme supplements made from vegetable or fungus as they do work in the acidic stomach.

Also don't swallow the capsules but chew them with food. Swallowed whole they open in the intestines after the pancreas has released the needed amount of enzymes and therefore do not aid digestion. If foods are properly pre-digested in the upper part of the stomach,  the pancreas will release less enzymes and therefore drains less of your body's enzyme production leaving more for maintenance/metabolism.

Can people get the same effect by fermenting grains outside of their bodies?

Fermenting is a bacterial process so I'd say no. However you can very easily sprout them. Just soak 12 hrs poor off and rinse with clean wather every 12 hours.

Im a real fan of enzyme rich nutrition so I sprout mung beans and lentils anuse them in my green smoothies. They're packed with vitamins to!

Off course raw annimal products are enzyme rich to however I started using sprouts before I dare eat raw meat and felt much better.

Introductions aren’t my strongest point (nor is English) but I wil give it a shot since it seems kinda strange to just start posting without one.

My dietary history

The first 18 years of my life I lived on grains, shit-fed meat, greens, fruits, lots off dairy and junk. I’m from the Netherlands were they have taken the low fat hype to the next level. It is common practice to eat 2 bread meals a day. To make matters worse on this bread there should be margarine because it’s a healthy fat right? Real butter is used only very little in the Netherlands.

Sometimes I really wonder how I survived!

At 18 I started reading a lot about nutrition and slowly realised there’s something very wrong with dietary advice giving by mainstream channels. I learned the value of real fats and experimented with low carb.

Next I found out about the blood type diet and naively believed the theory largely. Being type A I embarked upon a largely vegetarian diet with some dairy and meat. During the next 5 or so years my health increased and I kept reading. Slowly my diet got less blood type and more low-fat.

Recently I found out about the work of dr E. Howel, a true pioneer imo, and started eating lots of sprouts (no grains) and raw vegetables. This really helped my health a lot. However I still felt drained by the cooked meat so I started to google raw vegan and read a lot about it. I never did raw vegan because I’ve always been very sure humans are omnivores.

I felt it should at least be possible to eat eggs dairy and some types of meat raw. This lead me to the primal diet and eventually here. The next 2 months I read as much as I could on your forum and learned more than I ever thought I would. There’s a lot of wisdom here and I’m very happy to be part of this forum now.

I’m currently transitioning to an RPD diet. I tried going cold turkey and felt great however it wasn’t long before I started cheating due to social factors. So I now am easing into the diet.

My diet looks somewhat like this:

06:15 breakfast
   0,3 litre raw organic milk
   4 whole organic eggs
   teaspoon honey

tablespoon VCO  (in my climate its always solid)

9:30 snack
Avocado (addicted to them since my low carb experiments)

12:30 lunch
200-300 grams Raw organic semi-grassfed beef fatty cut
0,3 ltr raw organic milk
Some butter or vco

0,5 ltr Green vegetable smoothy with sprouts(50%)
Piece of raw cheese

~18:00 diner
Cooked meat or fish
Cooked vegetables / green smoothy
3 enzyme caps (they really work for me when eating cooked)

Suggestions are very welcome

When birds eat RAW grains(as they would in nature) the grains would stay in the crop(along with some water) at least 12 hours allowing germination to start. during germination the enzyme inhibitors, aka antinutrients, are destroyed and enzyme activity rises. The nutritional value changes significantly, prot and fat raise carbs go down. I would say there pretty well adopted te aeting grains.
