Could you elaborate a little bit on what you eat raw carefree? All beef/fish/dairy and the rest you cook?

I eat ruminants (cattle, goats, sheep, deer, etc.) raw without worrying, and poultry if I kill and prepare them myself. I also eat eggs raw without worrying. I rarely eat dairy. Meat from omnivores I cook.

This is not detox. You caught something. I would never recommend eating pork, or any other mammal that is an omnivore, raw. They can carry trichinosis, which can cause a lot of problems for you both near-term and longer-term. To deal with the stomach and intestinal upset (most likely caused by something else, not trich), I suggest sipping on apple cider vinegar intermittently throughout the day. I got salmonella once from eating raw chicken, and used that method to knock it right down.

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Re: Recommended Books

Melissa Henig's book on the Raw Paleo Diet is basically paraphrased material from Aajonus' books. It is a very thin book, and I do not remember seeing anything novel in it.

We have the same issue here in the United States, as I am sure many can attest.

For those who want to read the original peer-reviewed article, here is a link: Could we be overlooking a potential choline crisis in the United Kingdom?

Why would animal foods become more nutritious? Are you talking relative to plant foods, or in absolute terms?

I suspect there are other factors too besides junk food. I think it is really a junk lifestyle that is the problem, and the food people eat is of course part of that but only a part.

Great video Derek! For folks who are interested, I had Derek on my Healing Culture Podcast a couple years back. You can watch on Youtube here: https://youtu.be/ETThxHqG3BA

You can also listen on my website (in my signature) and on most podcatchers.

Very interesting indeed! They definitely did not have anything like that on their web page last time I thoroughly looked it over. Can you provide a link directly to that page?

$8 for a dozen hornworms is crazy expensive, but probably not any more so than driving out to folks' farms to gather then in season. They literally explode in the mouth with juiciness and a bitter flavor that I have come to appreciate. Waxworms and mealworms are great too.

I also eat hornworms, now that I think about it. They are generally large enough to gather come late July or August. I reach out to friends who own farms or gardens that grow tomatoes. Hornworms love tomato plants, so folks who grow them usually find tons of the huge caterpillars. They have somewhat of a bitter taste, and since they are eating nightshades I avoid eating huge quantities of them.

I eat a fair amount of grasshoppers. There are several places near my home where there are fields by organic farms. I just walk through the fields, catch grasshoppers with my hands, pluck their big back legs off, and eat them. They have a bit of a bitter taste due to their gut contents, but they are not bad. When I eat earthworms, I catch them wild rather than buy them and I do not chew them. I just put them in my mouth and swallow them down like a long noodle. They can be quite filling, especially if I find a few of the 'nightcrawlers', which can be 8 inches long. Mayflies are also wonderful to eat. They emerge from water bodies like deep lakes and stream en masse at certain points in summer and fall. You can often gather handfuls of them while walking along the edge of the stream or lake, and shovel them right into your mouth. Most of the ones I have eaten taste subtly like raw spinach. I do not know why.

Insects are a great food source. I would only warn you that the company you are buying from does not produce insects for human consumption. A consequence of this is the feed they use is generally nutritionally deficient, producing feeder insects that grow fast but that must be supplemented with vitamin or mineral powder when the bugs are fed to lizards, snakes, etc.

I have a hardcover version of We Want to Live and softcover (spiral bound) version of Recipes for Living Without Disease I am open to selling. Any takers? I live in the US, and prefer to ship within the US. Both books are in near-perfect condition. You would be hard-pressed to discern them from brand new copies. Best to message me on Facebook or through my website, although I will try to check my messages here more frequently until the books sell.

And I have eaten clay in the past, though I cannot say I noticed any measurable affect from it.

Thanks for sharing Dingeman. My guess as to what is happening:

The raw cheese is giving your body something it desperately needs, and one or more things it desperately does not. The thing it needs is a source of raw animal fat. The thing(s) it does not need is various other things in the raw cheese, like residual lactose, casein, or various other things that often trigger an inflammatory response or low-grade allergic reaction in people. My guess is that your sleepiness (fatigue) is due to one or both of these effects. While the raw cheese offers a little something good, on net I suspect it is hurting you.

There are plenty of ways to get raw animal fat besides dairy. Examples include: raw beef suet (or from sheep, or goat), bone marrow from ruminants, back fat from ruminants, etc. I gravitate to fat taken off 100% grass-fed animals killed in the spring or early summer because their omega 3 content is at its highest then due to the types of fresh forage they have been eating. If you seek this out and eat it instead of the cheese, I suspect you will enjoy the benefits you wrote about without any of the drawbacks.

I hope this works out as well as you think it will. I am curious why the demonetization issue pushed them away from a 2 day shoot? Plenty of ways to monetize YouTube vids outside of YouTube. They do not pay very well anymore anyway; most of the advertising revenue generated by videos that are monetized goes to YouTube now. Patreon seems to accept content like what you are talking about without complaint. Sv3rige is on Patreon, and while he does not make tons of money he earns a significant amount each month.

The title of this thread seems a bit misleading. I do not understand why you called it war against vegans, when the article you linked to implies a war against meat eaters.

Tapeworms have multiple life stages, and which life stage a person is infected by makes a huge difference in what symptoms they will be faced with. If you are infected with a larvae, it will turn into an adult in your GI tract and you will end up with a tapeworm in your gut. This is the basis of using tapeworms as therapy. They take some of the nutrition you eat, but otherwise do little harm.

If, on the other hand, you eat tapeworm eggs, the eggs will hatch in your GI tract and the larvae will migrate into your tissues where they will encyst. This can be terribly deleterious for people, and when people die from tapeworm infestations this is generally what happens. The article linked above points to a person who ended up with tapeworm larvae encysting in their brain.

I wonder if cooking the bean is necessary for the fermentation to work? I know that you can eat garbanzos raw if you soak and sprout them. I might try making natto from raw, soaked and sprouted garbanzos.

Intriguing. It had never occurred to me to make my own natto. I have always bought it from the store, at exorbitant prices. Your posts on it here have inspired me. I will probably try making it with a locally-grown bean of some sort, and maybe try a batch with garbanzos.

I am planning on producing, in the near future, a video on the costs and benefits of cooking. I want it to be honest and thorough, at least as far as naming all of the costs and benefits. What are some points that folks would particularly like me to research and touch on in the vid?

I would love to get in the head of die-hard vegans and see how they rationalize holding on to such an extreme dietary ideal. I cannot fathom it.

I owned her book at one point. It was okay. Basically an abbreviated version of Aajonus Vonderplanitz' book We Want to Live without the crazy stories, and many of her recipes are taken from his other recipe book. If you have AV's books, hers is really not worth it. She just repeats what he said in his books and seminars. I listened to a recent podcast she was on and she said she has had to abandon the raw diet to a significant degree after having her first baby.

Hi folks, I just released an episode of my Healing Culture Podcast featuring Derek Nance, who posts here using the handle Sabertooth. It is episode 14 of the podcast, and in addition to being able to listen on my website (linked) you can also listen on most podcatchers (Apple, Stitcher, Google Play, etc.) as well as on YouTube. The YouTube vid does not have video, unfortunately, it is just the audio file with my podcast's logo as a background. Here is the episode's description:

Derek Nance was featured in a 2013 Vice article titled This Guy’s Eaten Nothing But Raw Meat For Five Years, and in a documentary series called A Million Ways to Live. He talks with Eric about what drew him to make raw meat a cornerstone of his diet, the benefits of intermittent fasting, and the importance of choosing quality meats in a raw food diet, among other things.
