This is in America, I assume?  It doesn't mention the name of the city, at least that I could find.  It wouldn't surprise me a bit if this were in an American city.  People here--particularly those who work in managing cities--are diabolical fools who are constantly looking for ways to assert their power over normal, everyday people. 

Hot Topics / Nora Gedgaudas - Primal Diet, Primal Mind
« on: July 04, 2011, 08:35:29 am »
A book recently came out entitled Primal Diet, Primal Mind by Nora Gedgaudas.  It is not related to Aajonus V's Primal Diet, and from the interviews I've heard it sounds like a melding of the Weston A Price Diet and a more typical Paleo Diet.  Anyone read the book yet, and want to offer any thoughts?

I've found a good source for grass fed, grass finished suet and eat it on occasion, although lately I've been eating mostly marrow.  When I eat suet, I often chop it into fine pieces and mix it in a small amount of raw honey to make it a little more palatable.  I also mix it in with raw meat sometimes, or mix it into raw meat and mix in a little raw honey too.

I've never seen it come out the other end undigested.

I prefer shagbark hickory, white oak, white ash and eastern hophornbeam for bows.  They're dense woods and are fairly common around where i live.

I use a Nichols woodcraft rasp like these:

I clamp the file in a vice so the finer side is facing up and the file is at an angle.  I then put something under the file to catch the bone dust, and run the bone over the file over and over.  You'll get a mildly unpleasant "burnt bone" smell as you file away, but this does the job.  I usually couple this with carving bone arrowheads for hunting season.

I can probably run for a bit over an hour, and do enjoy doing these longer runs too.  I run barefoot (actually barefoot, not "barefoot" wearing minimalist shoes or Vibram FiveFingers) and my feet are still in the re-strengthening phase, so I can't go quite as long as I'd like before my form starts to suffer.  I'll keep at it though, and I trust that my feet's strength will improve and I'll eventually reach the 2 and 3 hour marks, and longer.

I echo Ioanna's preference to run on a completely empty stomach.  I purposely run in the morning, since I usually don't eat until 11:00 or 12:00.  I get to run on an empty stomach, then load up on calories with a mix of raw honey and raw bone marrow before filling up with a 0.5 kg of meat or so.  I usually drink a liter or two of water while running, or immediately after.  I've found this to be a great wake-up routine.

My experience has been similar.

Since most of us don't live in Africa, I wonder if we should be exploring what tubers are edible raw where we live?  I am particularly interested in wild edibles, and eat fair amounts of jerusalem artichoke, burdock root, dandelion root, wild carrot, cattail, and curly dock.  That said, plant foods more generally or roots/tubers specifically never make up the majority of my diet, either by mass or by calories.

Who will your publisher be?  Do you have an agent?

I'm building my site at using KompoZer, a free drag-and-drop, what-you-see-is-what-you-get web design tool.  It seems to work well, although it does have a few bugs that have thus far been easy to deal with.

As far as hosting, I host on FatCow's servers (  I've found them to be reasonably priced and reliable, and have no complaints.

I've had similar experiences, although somewhat less extreme.  I occasionally crave vegetables and less commonly fruits, but most of my diet consists of animal foods. 

Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / Re: What plants do you eat?

I eat wild plants.  Pretty much whatever's in season.  I spend a lot of time outdoors, so am constantly exposed to poison ivy.  Eating a few young leaves each spring helps to desensitize me to the oil, so I don't constantly get rashes.

Obama is every Americans fault. We need to run that prick out with torches and pitchforks.  ;D

Just like Bush II, Clinton, Bush I, Reagan, Carter, Ford, Nixon, Johnson, Kennedy and all the rest were Americans' fault.  We needed to run all these pricks out with torches and pitchforks, but we didn't, so here we are.

I voted for Barr & Root, so Obama's not my fault either.  But Obama's better than McCain & Palin (who didn't stand a chance in hell of winning anyway).

I'd vote for Ron Paul if I saw his name on the ballot.

I have.  I found it mildly entertaining and insightful, albeit childishly written.  If you feel drawn to the anarcho-primitivist worldview advocated by folks like John Zerzan, Derrick Jensen and Daniel Quinn, you might find it amusing. 

Urban Scout (the author) has his own website ( and his own message board (  He also contributes to Derrick Jensen's forum (find it through  I know at least a couple other folks who regularly contribute here are members of Derrick's forum.

Actually, I've been on the forum for over a year.  I started with the username Eric Garza, then had it changed to Sitting Coyote.  I started a new account with the name Eric to find a balance between the security of anonymity and offering my real name.
