General Discussion / Re: Cooked vs Raw fats
« on: June 04, 2012, 06:59:27 pm »
If there's anything you don't want to eat cooked Poly - it's fat. Cooked fat seems to be the worst for me over any other cooked food.
for me cooked carbs are definitely the worst.

animal produces require acidid digestion plant matter (except grains) alkalic so keep them apart for optimum digestion. the longer it takes for a food to digest the longer you should wait to eat from the other group. When i started doing this my digestion improved a lot. Now i never combine these except on rare occasions.

I had three bananas the night before last (unusual for me to eat so many - usually only one at a time) and I had a terrible night and felt bad the next morning. I was thinking about the banana people and wondering how on earth they could eat 30 and live to tell the tale. Maybe it's because they eat them rotten?
I have the same experience with any high carb food. If i eat too much carbs short before going to bed i sleep very restless. I wake up all the time, have weird dreams and just feel nervous. I wake up feeling severely hung over. Took me a while to figure it out but there is no doubt the same every time.

I am going to meet Aajonus for a consultation when he is in Helsinki, Finland in July. I have been following his work for more than ten years and it is the first time I can go to see him in person, I am very excited about that. Anyone else in Europe who is going to Helsinki?
wish i could. So no. Would love to meet the guy. Especially to see him up close and look him in the eyes just to see for myself how heathy he really is.

We need a guy like av here in the netherlands. We have lots and lots of lush green pastures and million of dairy cows locked up in stables being fed grain and worse. We need a charismatic figure who can open farmers eyes they can do so much better. Especially because they already have the resources(gras).
Tell him to get down here  :P  ;)

strain smoothys to lose the fibre? I do so. Fibre gets me in trouble as well. I pretty much follow the primal diet. Green veggie juices are amazing for me. They allow me to get the nutrition from plants without the problems I get from fibre.if you are constipated get lots of fast with every meal.

Don't forget "wadging" as an option: chewing the juiciness out of a veggie and then spitting out the fibers. I prefer this method because I thinking that chewing and taste in the mouth are important parts of digestion.
Yeah im starting to do that to now. Just yesterday i made my first juice from homegrown produce. I dont what it is they sell as parsley, celery, cilantro, spinach in stores (even organic) but it just doesnt compare. I made a juice from homegrown parsley, celery, and spinach and a tiny piece of mint. This stuff is very potent. I drank a small glas and was wound up all night, very strong energy boost. I notice a little boost from storebought veggies but nothing like this. Must have somthing to do with all the minerals (especially magnesium) i added to the soil.

anyway i started "wadging" because my homegrown juices are so strong. this is a nice controlled way to get the goodies.

I like the idea of working out, but get bored easily. I did read a great book though about Static Contraction exercises, which said muscle & bone strength is set by the maximum loading they encounter - with this theory there is no need to actually move the muscle, just incremental daily increases in forces develops bulk.
Limited range of motion during any type of exercise produces limetid range results. You only get stronger in the position you exercise and a narrow area arount that. Go for full range exercise for full range benefits. Focus on the position of maximum contraction, only there will you aver contract the largest possible number of fibers similtaniously.

Come to think of it - not much was all that easy to come by in paleo times was it? lol  l)
lol. you're right. although it is terribly easy to "harvest" a whole bunch of insects very quick. That would be an easy meal, just not an appetizing one. oh wel who knows never tried raw spider snail worms etc. Come to think of it with my current earthworm population i dont have to startev anytime soon  :P

Although I fully agree that starches and in particular grains are much worse and also very addictive I still think refined sugar is also very very addictive.

Grains are indeed held in high regard for some reason and it is very possible that addiction plays a large roll
In general I think carbs are addictive which probably has something to do with their  limited availability in palea times

Primal Diet / Re: can raw kefir go bad?
« on: May 24, 2012, 10:09:48 pm »
If you plan on keeping drinking kefir just get yourself some real grains. Trust me you will enjoy that kefir a lot more. The real kefir culture in the grains is so strong that scientist that deliberatly inoculated raw milk with E Coli., strep. c, and other bad bacteria found that makin kefir using grains and the contaminated milk was no problem. The kefir culture completely removed all bad bacteria, they could not be traced back after 24hr fermentation.

Just using the sour milk as a starter is a very unstable proces. It is impossible to tell what bacterial culture might arise when working this way. Be safe get some grains.

When I was a kid I ate plain white sugar straight out of the sugar bowl every day by the table spoonful. Icing sugar was also a favourite of mine.
Oh boy thats bad. ques you were a fan of white bread with sugar as well hé.

Kidding aside though i think the article is bang on. For those of you who read the whole thing not just the header, the cupcakes are clearly used as an example here. One can substitute them for anything high in refined sugar. Why would anyone(haai aside) want to get addicted to plain sugar when there are plenty, much more tasty (or disgusting actually) alternatives. Strip all stores of sweet foods except fruit and plain white sugar and i think people will start eating the stuff planly very quikly. It's just that there are easier, tastier, prettier ways to get your sugar kicks nowadays.

Personally i think the 40% figure is a massive underestimation. IMO at least 75% of the western world is severely sugar and starch adicted. starch is probaly even worse. Massive amounts of pasta, bread, (white)rice and dough have completly taking over peoples dietary habbits.

Take a good look around and you will see just about everyone around you tripping on sugar. Living from sugar kick to starch high with deep dips in between.

Thanx for posting the link Tyler.

The barbell was a huge leap forward from kettlebell training. it was quite literally a miracle tool and results becam possible that haddent been seen for a long time. This is because with a barbel the weight can be adjusted to fit the needs of a particular person/muscle. Kettlebels offer no such possibility, the weight being either to heavy or to low in 99% of the case. Even if the weight is perfect once after that one exercise (if done right) you will get stronger and the next workout the weight is to low etc.

Besides most barbel exercises are closer to being full range than kettlebells. The rise of the barbell made strenght training/bodybuilding possible on a serious level.

The next giant leap forward were exercise machines. A properly designed exercise machine ouperforms a barbel enormously. Sadly most exercise machines nowadays are designed to look good and be easy to operate thus destroying most benefits, in that case a barbel is much prefered.

A good exercise machines will offer full range of motion, variable resistance(to match strenght curve of muscle), direct resistance, streching and pre- stretching posibility(range of motion of the machine should be bigger than that of the trainee), small step weight increments and a heavier negative than positive load. A barbell offer none of these factors in most exercises and only 2 of these in a very few exercises.

What are your goals? what equipment do you have available? what is your current level of fitness?
Do you have any problematic areas(weak joints, old injuries, back problems etc)?
These are all basic considerations before anyone can offer any sensible advice.
If those factors are not taking into serious consideration you will make little progress in the best case and injure yourself in the worsed case.

I agree with that observation. However i's like to add to that that there are very few sports were weight is as much an issue as is often believed. Genectic freaks being far stronger than most people even at much less mucle mass dominate all sports. Seeing those leightweight genetically superior people win gold medals motivates people to not use weight training. This however is a imo a big mistake because the genetically gifted have even more to gain than the avarage joe. Imagine those already superior atletes taking there sport to a whole new level by means of proper exercise. I dont think we have seen the true limits of human ability in any sport and i think that all current doped records can be broken by genetically gifted, superior athletes using weight training properly without any chemicall aids.

A well designed and properly executed hit program will produce great increases in strength, power, mass, flexibility and cardiovascular condition and metabolic condition. It is neither necessary not desirable to train those separate. In fact doing so will greatly reduce total overall results.

When training optimum for strength it is impossible to not greatly improve on all fronts. however very few people are willing to work as hard as is required. intensity is sacrificed and wrongly replaced by increased volumes of training. I've exercised with a lot of people and all of them without exception could do at least another for reps when they were absolutely convinced they reached momentary muscular failure. The body is desperately trying to prevent you working that hard. When and if you learn to overcome those barriers true exercise is possible and the results better than anything you ever thought possible.

The question is why so many people want to be muscular?
Look at shaolin monks they are not very muscular but they have more strength than any bodybuilder. I mean that they can do much more useful thing with their body
Please define usefull.. I can do all the things I could before i build 25kg of muscle but i can also do a LOT more now.

It should be obvious that genetics determan 100% what one CAN be. What one actually becomes is determand by daily activities. You cannot make a silk purse out of a sows ear so without an genetic ability to build say 50lbs of muscle it wont happen. Having the genetic ability obvious doesn't cut it either, you still need nutrition and exercise to do it.

Look around some people despite being lazy and eating crap are bigger and stronger than you will ever be with any kind of exercise.

One can quite accurately predict how big one can become by observing the body. Muscles with long muscle bellies (and thus short tendons) can get much bigger than those with short muscle bellies. Flex your biceps at an 90degree elbow angle and look at the gap between and of musle and forearm. Is the gap large than you have a short mucle belly and long tendons and thus a limited potential for size. This is due to aspect ratio. A muscle never gets thicker than it is long. so the longer the muscle the bigger in can potentially become. A small or no gap between muscle end and forearm mean good er great potential for size.

The lenght of muscles vs tendons varies per person and per musle and is 100% geneticly determand and not subject to change(ever).

Would you please give us examples of strength building exercises vs muscle building exercises --- or programs. Thanks.
They are the same of course.
Althought it is true that strenght increases come first and appear to be without size increases this is not the case. First strenght increases as a result of increases in neuromuscular efficiency. Your body is quite literally making new neurological pathways to be able to use a larger percentage of muscle fibers. When the limit of that progress is reached, and one continues to exercise, size increases come. The size of a muscle increases very suddenly. This is not a steady progress its a stair like curve. After a size increase(growth) the body needs to learn again how to use the new mass. Thus making new pathways etc. So first comes some strenght increase, than very suddenly a size increase. Than strenght again. etc etc. In order to stimulate the body to get stronger one must ask it to do something its is uncomfortable to do with the current level of ability. This mean working inside the strenghts reserves(part of stregnth that is not used in every day activity). The body doesnt like it when you use those reserves (thats why exercise is hard you need to overcome mental barriers in place to prevent overexertion) and as a results gets stronger so you can do that without using reserves. Off course thats whenyou start lifting heavier and us them again thus triggering another round of strenght increases.

Yeah I know. my cat is hundred percent raw. That is when he's home. He just came back after having been gone for three weeks. You see he is not castrated so he went to reproduce. Right now  he's complaining he wants more food. I guess living out hunting mating and fighting (he's shredded) took its toll. Still rather that than chop his balls off.

Oh im nice to them. I'm the reason they started experimenting with raw. Last week their cat was dying and they saved it using raw meat and raw liver. Cat went from dying to fully healthy in a day. They've seen the power of raw food now.

recycling kefir grains is mighty easy. Once you get to many you just eat them. I sometimes add some to a milkshake.

What we in the nl call gouda or goudse kaas. I've seen this name used abroad as well to describe Dutch cheeses. So maybe you now it. It is the most basic cheese. Just separate the solids from the milk using rennet I or kefir (they made me some butter and cream cheese using kefir grains I supplied sooooo good) press the solids and let it age 6 to 8 Weeks for young cheese. Over a year for old cheese.

Yes Dorothy I feel lucky to have found this farm. They are one of the very few organic farm in nl that pasture feeds there animals. The milk butter cheese I get right now are from cows grazing the fast growing young grasses from spring. There its no higher quality.

Hard cheeses are pressed, than sealed using wax or nowadays plastic and left to age. Young cheese is very soft. As the cheese matures it gets harder/dryer. This is partly due to evaporation and partly due to ongoing fermentation.

My local farmer and cheese maker just started making cheeses for me. He used to only make salted cheese. So far he made me three unsalted cheeses that are now aging. First one its almost ready, can't wait!

The original milk I started with was a kefir made with kefir grains. Instead of getting kefire grains however, I am just using the remnants of the original kefir. Isnt this just as good as having the grains since the bacteria are in the kefir I am using?
possibly. However if it was indeed made with strong healthy grains then the kefir should be riddled with tiny baby grains. if you keep some of the old every time those babys would quickly start growing to be grains themselves.

I've seen lab tests confirm the 50+ claim. I'll see if I can find then again.

I meant adding honey just prior to consumption to make it sweet. Of course sourness depends on fermentation time.

The endless argument. LOL

We use raw honey as a starter, works well. We tried K grains but they were a bit of work as we don't eat a lot of kefir. Too sour for me.

BTW it isn't, but even if it is, what s wrong with sour milk?
Like I said in my previous post there is nothing wrong with sour milk. In fact i like sour milk. However there are only a couple of bacteria strains in raw milk thar sour(ferment) it. In real kefir made with grains. There are over 50 types of bacteria and yeast and fungi in a very powerfull symbiose.

My kefir is only sour if i let it be. short fermented kefir is hardly sour. Adding honey fixes this anyway if you have a problem with sour. I don;t i love sour stuff.

So you eat a lot of raw cow butter?

How do you get yours?
Lots of butter, marrow and some suet.
I get my butter at an excellent organic farm. They make it themself in small batches. The cows are 100% pastured.
