Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / Re: Water-Fasting
« on: June 02, 2010, 12:46:21 pm »
I don't think anybody can give you a definite explanation of what's going on. The benefit from water fasting, I believe, lies in giving your digestive system a rest rather than in detox. I'm not sure if it works for everybody, though. I for one can't fast without feeling terrible, and it will make me crave bad foods, too, so whenever I went off the fast, I destroyed any possible benefits by overeating crap. If you feel alright on the fast, then just go on and don't eat anything, because that will skew the results of your water-fasting experiment. You'll never know if water fasting is good for you because you didn't really water-fast if you experiment with eating fats during the fast. I'd leave those experiments for a later time.

Just wanna add my experience here. When I started raw meat, I thought it will be so off-putting for females that I would not be able to find a girlfriend. I also thought that no girl would accept me if I couldn't take her out to a "nice"  -v restaurant. However, just the opposite happened. Now I have a girlfriend of the kind I thought I could never have, and it seems that I could easily get another one if this ended... I think it has a lot to do with the fact that I'm not in constant pain, depression and general misery anymore... my self-esteem and social skills have also skyrocketed as a result.

My feeling towards plastic bottles is very negative. Recently I drank some really cheap mineral water from one of those thin flexible bottles and it gave me a stomach ache. This happened frequently when I drank that water all the time before... Not sure if it was the water or the plastic... I think I can taste a difference, especially if the bottle has been exposed to the sun or if it has been opened before and then stored again. Plastic also seems really bad environmentally. So I prefer buying my water in glass bottles, even though it's a bit expensive.

Here's a study linking BPA to infertility:

I'm in the UK and use 5-litre alkaline mineral water bottles 99% of the time. At £1.19/1.99 per 5-litre bottle they are dirt-cheap and avoid the issues re chlorinated/fluoridated tapwater.

Are those plastic bottles?

Wild or farmed?  Wild salmon actually causes strong nausea in a LOT of people, including several people here.  I can't eat raw wild salmon at all, I get strongly nauseated.

On the WAPF site there is a review including a download link for a book on Inuit ways of eating fish. In this book the author states that Inuit don't eat salmon raw because it can make them sick and unable to eat raw food for a while. She says that it can even make dogs sick. Interestingly, freezing is supposed to be a way of denaturing the protein so to make it edible.

I don't think it's hard at all physically, it's just hard in social terms as a lot of social life takes place during the late hours.

I can get mackerel for a good price.

I theoretically have constant access (every Saturday) to game meats, but the price is too high as compared to lamb, so I eat lamb more often. I can't buy fat or organs locally usually, but I could order meat, marrow and organs from boar online. Organs and marrow are very expensive though.

The German officials have actually recently admitted to chemtrail operations in your country.

Never heard about that. Definitely interested in a link!

You didn't read the above properly. The 1st link concerned certain Aryan tribes in India which focused solely on vegan foods, no other foods. And that group in Iran was a tribe, not a religious sect. Although, granted, several religious offshoots(India etc.) have also practised 100% vegan diets throughout history even until now.

Sorry, I was in a hurry and since you mentioned the Kitavans and Hunza I thought it was more in that vain... If that is true, then that's pretty intense... Anyway, WAP just said he didn't find any vegan tribes, which surprised him, because he expected to find some. I think WAP's data was very limited, hence his conclusions may not be 100% accurate... Anyway, I don't think the term "propaganda" fits WAP, unless you mean the WAP Foundation...

It's the same with me... fruit or dairy... when I take them in moderation at first I think "wow, it's ok now", but after a while symptoms start to show up.

It's false Weston-Price propaganda which tries to claim there are no vegan tribes or that there are no vegetarian tribes which are reasonably healthy. Here's 1 or 2 examples, there are more which are vegetarian- or  strongly vegetarian-leaning such as the Hunzas/Kitavans:-

There was also some vague mention of an iranian vegan tribe who were shown not to have b12 deficiency as they consumed vegetables grown in B12-rich human manure:-

Well, that rather confirms that there aren't any vegan tribes. Some vague mention of Persian vegans... Maybe some special religious group? Price actually mentioned a lot of populations who predominantly ate plant foods and did well, like the Bantu in Africa or South-Sea Islanders, I also think he mentioned a healthy lacto-vegetarian group in India. Price also recommended a largely vegetarian diet with some dairy and a little animal protein (I think he wrote one sardine a day would suffice or something.) But that is something completely different from being vegan! Vegan would mean that people would eschew animal products in any shape or form. Those tribes probably saw that they could support more people with their largely plant-based diet and probably would have eaten more animal foods if they had had the option.

Dried. I've never seen it sold fresh.

Do you just chew on it? Or soak it? I was wondering about the nutritional benefits of eating it raw, as it seems that the nutrients are bound to the fiber which makes assimilation difficult without somehow processing it.

though there are a number of vegan tribes.

Really? Which ones? I was under the impression that no such tribes existed.

This will give you a good foundation to start making at least a million a year.

So are you making a million plus a year now?

I'm interested in trying the most digestible and least antigenic dairy product(s) of all myself, to put the dairy-promoting claims to the test. My guess was that raw cultured butter would potentially be the least problematic. Do you think that raw cheese would be less problematic than raw cultured butter and if so, why? My understanding is that most cheeses contain casein and/or whey, which are both potential antigens, whereas butters generally contain much less casein or whey.

Yes on casein, but I don't think there are more than traces of whey cause it gets taken out of the cheese during processing.

I don't really have a theoretical explanation other than that cheese seems to be more natural: Rennet is taken from calves stomaches and then used to make cheese, so it's like a calf - being the animal that milk is ideal for - predigested the milk for you. What I have is my experience that I do a lot better on (high quality) raw cheese than on raw butter, and that it tastes a lot better to me. Cheese is also the only dairy I crave occassionally. However, I only have one source of raw butter, and it's not cultured, so I can't be sure about that.

Although thats true, there is still small amounts of lactose and why would you want to eat something that is clearly non-paleo? If its simply that one food that you can't give up than eat it but I really don't believe that cheese mimics any paleo food.

I'm in fact trying to give it up hoping that will help my gut heal, but sometimes I have given in to cravings. My point is just that (truly raw) cheese might be the most natural an digestible of all dairy, and I wanted to hear opinions on that. The problem, though, is that "raw cheese" is made from raw milk, but is heated somewhat in the production process I believe. Anyhow I guess I'll make and eat cheese sparingly once I'm content with my bowel health and see how that is... that might however take a long time or maybe never happen...

Then... I'm a fruitarian who eats an occassional egg yolk  :D

    Yes.  I was vegan at the time, had been so many years.  She said to me she's stricter than vegan.  She said she would buy a little raw dairy for her baby.  As it turned out she stretched the words raw and strict a bit of a way.  Turned out whole fish was a little raw dairy, and frying eggs in her kitchen was a little raw dairy, melting cheese on vege burgers was a little raw dairy, and the whole family eating it was for the baby, even if this was all in a restaurant.

In the case of my avocado there is only a bit at the top, that is rotten.
The rest looks perfectly nice, yellow and soft. It will also taste nice. I'm sure about that.
Can that be eaten safely or should it be thrown away as the mold spores have-invisibly- already entered?

Not sure if there is a definite answer. I'd eat it any time though.

Rotting avocado tastes SO bad!!!

AV mentions using molds on berries and I think lemons for detoxing vaccines. He says that people will get lethargic from the mold for a month or longer, so eating decaying fruit might have serious side effects.
