Health / UVB lamp
« on: June 17, 2010, 03:22:04 pm »
Would it make sense to use an UV-B lamp at home if I can't get enough sunlight? Thanks..

i had some raw pre-frozen salmon w/skin last night. it was alright. i thought it would taste like sushi but it didn't. weird.

the price for variety seems a bit steep. also i dont want to spend a lot of time chewing raw meat, especially when i'm at work, due to social issues and also the stuff sticking between my teeth.

trying to figure out solutions... can i dry ground meat? the prefrozen i have leaks all of it's juices out quickly, so maybe that would help the drying process?

I'm not sure about ground meat because I don't buy it. Can't you buy meat other than that? I think ground meat isn't really the nicest way of eating raw meat unless you make sausage from it.

Would it be a good idea to use an UV-B lamp for the winter months / when staying indoors a lot?

Some people have reported that they liked their meat better when it was somewhat dried.

I didnt say that cooked saturated fats were healthy, I simply stated that they dont correlate to heart disease. I'll tell ya what, I'd take cooked saturated fats over cooked grains and carbohydrates any day. The real correlation is within the inflammation, and yes I'd have to agree AGE's play a big factor. Im just saying that the US lives in a fat phobic society. What people have to realize is carbohydrates are 100 times worse than fats. Even Weston Price said that while sugar consumption in US increased fat consumption decreased, and heart disease is skyrocketing, so whats the real correlation? A 1902 study posted by the New York Times stated that since 1870 sugar consumption increased 8 times. Since 1902, it increased 7 times. So we're looking at a society that eats roughly 15 times the sugar today than it did in 1870, WOW  :o. However during this sugar increase, fat esp sat fat has decreased.

Actually WAP didn't make a case for low-carb, and he studied a lot of (cooked) high-carb-eating people with great dental and overall health.

One rule of thumb is unless your diet is sound your exercise doesnt mean jack squat.

Exactly. Before I was eating raw meat, exercise just made my body painful for days, I didn't recover and couldn't improve after a certain point. I tried so hard to improve my health with exercise, but I actually felt better after giving it up.

Did you notice anything from the troubles? Or is that limited to Bangkok?

I always weigh my food. It may seem pedantic, but that way I don't have to worry about it. Otherwise I will eat too little and get fatigued during the day, or I'll eat too much and feel sluggish from that.

thanks, good info
currently i'm eating 1 pound of ground grass fed meat a day (beef, lamb, or vitellone) and i'm wondering if i should do more. its certainly a grand experiment.

How much fat / carbs do you eat with that? I eat about 500g meat + 200g fat in a day.

Isn’t there a problem downstream of digestion ? Concerning poultry, I agree and I give myself some millet to mine, but it is unheated. Grain is almost ever dried, perhaps at 65°C or more, be it organic or not.

You can still sprout them though, so I think they are fine...

AV does that and he does quite well on it I guess. Not sure if you have the necessary guru qualities though.

Well, it's normal for your cat to have parasites, isn't it? I mean wild animals have them all the time, too. Is your cat sick at all?

I find the beef suet I get much tastier. I love the taste of it and it doesn't give me any problems.

I eat lamb's brain, tongue, suet, and the fat around the belly usually. When I can get it, I also eat beef suet and bone marrow, but that's only once every two months or so.

I live in a 3rd world country.

How about regulations? Is the meat you get inspected for parasites etc?

I believe that most of the raw paleos on this site are from 1st world countries, so their meat will have been carefully inspected, there are a lot of laws on hygiene etc. It might be that this is a reason why nobody is complaining about parasites. It would be interesting to hear from raw meat eaters in the 3rd world. On the other hand, AV might be right and raw meat actually protects from parasite damage.

Anyhow, not all parasites are the same and I definitely wouldn't want one of them to eat my organs or whatever. AV says they only eat degenerate tissue, but that doesn't seem to be the case really if they eat peoples brains and eyes.

i'm guessing that botulism occurs in a sealed/anaerobic environment, which is why properly aged or high meat is healthy?

Yes. I think botulism occurs mostly in canned food.

Eventually it will go bad in the vaccum packs. You might get botulism from it which is no joke. I haven't found an ideal solution yet... I want a meat locker...

what, you didn't know it is good for you?

so are cigarettes, coke, cereal, etc.

and so is shooting yourself in the knee  :o

Carbs and fats just don't go well together. Simple as that.

Carbs and lean meats are fine and fat and lean meats are fine.. But not all three.

I ate high fat yesterday then ate some fruit before training, even though I knew it was a bad idea and I almost threw up during training.

What does it mean for you, do you eat like actionhero with low fat high carb days and high fat very low carb days?

Thanks. Well it's not like the government has admitted to using chemtrails, just that they were used in an airforce exercise.

The military said they're safe...  -\

Some people recommend combining fat and carbs to prevent blood sugar spikes. Other people say that carbs from fruit digest better if eaten on their own. That seems to be the case for me, too.

Some excerpts from a show on parasites:

There's a bunch of scary stuff like parasites eating lungs, brains, making a child blind in one eye.

The victims weren't RAFers of course... There is some mention of undercooked pork, but otherwise they got the critters even though they ate SAD and lived sanitary lives I guess.

An interesting point is that they repeatedly mention that the parasites live in their animal hosts without causing much harm while they are very harmful inside humans. One might wonder why that is so...

« on: June 03, 2010, 12:26:45 am »
What castor oil does is it irritates the bowels (which I think is very bad and counter-productive especially when fasting) and therefore works as a laxative. So I don't think it will do you any good, as you already have the runs.

By AV, puking and diarrhoea are detoxes. However, I'm not so sure about that... My reaction was totally different, I got constipated and hat to take epsom salts / and or enemas. My fasting experience is also pre-paleo, though.

About Moses and Jesus, there's no way of telling how they fasted. If there are records for the Greeks, I'm not sure. People claim to have gone on waterfasts for long times. Not sure how long people have dry fasted.

My advice would be to treat this as an experiment. Keep it pure water fasting and go on as long as you think you can or should, then see what it did for you. I guess you wanted to find out about the benefits water fasting could have for you, so if you go off the track now, you will invalidate your experiment.
