Recently I had some mustard with my lamb. I took the seeds and ground then, then just mixed them with apple cider vinegar. One could add honey, but I ran out of it.

Chewed meat feels better for my digestion. Also, I wouldn't want to just swallow some nice and tasty meat. Where is the enjoyment in that?

Those are cute! I think biting them will kill them pretty quickly.

Suet taste like candle wax because it his very high in saturated fat but when you mix it with coconut oil wich has less saturated fat it chimicaly change into a less saturated fat so it becomes soft and melts in the mouth.

Coconut oil has more saturated fatty acids than suet.

500-700 cal on days when eating raw lean meat (most of my days)

How much lean meat do you eat per day to meet your caloric needs on those days?

I grind my lamb suet / stomach fat in my meat grinder sometimes. If I press it into glass jars after that, it keeps better than when I put it in the jars as it is. the grinding makes it creamy and it takes some of the fibrous (I'm using the word for lack of a better one) part.

If you want to take it a step further, you could try the low-heat rendering process described here:
I've tried it, and it works for me, though I don't think I will take the time as I digest my fat fine as it is.

    Would eating pig intestine be in order?  Just once.  I don't mean to eat it all the time.  Are you familiar with the study at the University of Iowa? 

Would the pig intestines still contain live parasites?

I've read a good deal of it, but I'm not sure what to think about it. It seems that he was quite successful trying diets until the point when he he tried intermittent fasting and ran into trouble, which is mystifying...

You were fine until you started 'diets'

What's wrong with that? Until I tried PD I didn't feel like I was even alive. The changes have been that big just from changing my diet (though I moved away from PD to more paleo eating.)

Have you tried making sauces? You could spice up your meat a lot that way. AV has a lot of recipes in his second book!
Another idea about the hunger issue might be to try intermediate fasting such as eating only one meal per day.
If you did better on high carb but can't stomach fruit, why not try a cooked starch such as baked tubers? It isn't paleo, but it has helped me greatly at times.

Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / Re: Euphoric effects from cacao
« on: April 29, 2010, 03:51:22 pm »
Actually it was from the health food store and it contained raw bamboo sugar (I think it's the same as brown sugar) but sugar is sugar. I agree that chocolate bars are processed, heated so as with meat some toxic byproducts are created. But raw cacao beans. I really want to get my hand on them for some time. I can't make my high-meat at home to boost my mood like Tyler said.

I am not sure if I remember it right but some aztecs or mayans drank about 30 cups of chocolate a day. I don't think they would have embraced it if it made them sick later.

You could get the raw beans by mail order. I tried them before, but they were not really tasty, so I ended up throwing them away. I also wonder about anti-nutrients in them, as they are technically legumes.
 About the high meat, how about hiding a jar somewhere outside and airing it every day?

 Another question is, why do you need something to boost your mood? If you find the answer to that, you may come up with a better solution than eating chocolate.

I think that most of them believe that eating meat is unhealthy and toxic too. :)

There is too many subjects on cacao with different views... I haven't found no real studying saying that it is toxic.

I just see more benefits in it than unhealthy side effects. Magnesium, increased dopamine ( brain activity ), antioxidants and more.

With that kind of reasoning, you might as well drink green tea, eat tofu etc.  -\

However dark, chocolate always contains refined sugar, one of the worst 'foods' ever infented, the beans are toasted... The fact that scientists have isolated subtances in chocolate that are supposedly beneficial doesn't mean that eating chocolate is beneficial at all.

I kind of look to children for the answers..

Kind of like 'why do kids eat glue?'  their bodies must know there is gelatin or something from those horse hooves that they make that pasty kids glue out of, they know they must need the nutes from it so they eat it...

in that same vein of thinking, i can not recall ever watching a child collect its body wastes and re-ingest them.... 

but then again i suppose i used to eat my boogers as a kid.... humm.

I've seen children run to cars that had just been parked in order to sniff the exhaust fumes. That kind of makes me doubt that children instinctively know what's best for them.

    Coming from a whole food standpoint, fresh beef blood has salt I think.  It may have other nutrients missed to that might work together in a WOE.  People say butchers sell blood, especially in ethnic stores, for cooking. 

    Maybe it comes frozen most of the time. 

    I was thinking when they (the SAD people) sell toxin laden fatty confinement meat, that much of the toxins melt away with the fat in cooking (rotisserie etc).  If they sell blood though, I would imagine it has to be organic or grass raised, as I can't see how toxins would fall out of blood in cooking it.  If a majority of people got sick right away from a food, I doubt it would have had an ethnic tradition.

They sell blood from conventionally raised pigs here. They also make fatty sausages from conventional meat. Also smoked bacon etc., so it's not like people don't consume that kind of fat.

Here's another one about rodent endocrinology...

For the first time, terminally ill rodents with type-1 diabetes have been restored to complete health with a single injection of a substance other than insulin.
University of Texas Southwestern (UTS) researchers tested for the first time whether an injection of leptin gene given to insulin-deficient mice dying of diabetic coma could reverse their terminal condition.

. . . . . . .

Could you post a link for that???

Other animals do it

I saw my gerbils do it... I read they do it to get vitamin b12 which is produced in the bowels, but too far down to be reabsorbed. Which other animals do it? Which ones drink their urine and how?

Do you have an explanation as for why the reabsorbed toxins wouldn't be a problem?

I just read in MrBBQ's journal about it... My question is... wouldn't urine, feces, and sweat be major ways of the body to get rid of toxins? So wouldn't it therefore be counterproductive to re-introduce them into the body? Why does the body excrete urine in the first place, if it were better to reabsorb it?

Same thing happens to me. The sweeter the fruit, the more tired I get. I think it's hypoglycemia (always had problems with that.)

Salt makes me feel "weird", makes me sleepy but then I can't sleep well, and it gives me headaches.

I've juiced lettuce before. It was quite good. Also chard or spinach. Tastes fine with me. YMMV

(I would add deceived, fooled, programmed, mind-controlled etc.)

Yep. Look at what happened in the 1960s!

Hunting... I live in the wrong country. It seems too expensive in terms of money and time here. And I guess my next stop (Taiwan) isn't really going to be ideal either.

Last year I was eating a cooked high fat, moderate carb, moderate protein diet that was low-fiber. The cost was 1/4-1/2 of what I pay now... But healthwise it's so much better, so I need a good job or something to keep it up.

as for squatting versus sitting on the porcelain throne, probably the turkish workers, mexican immigrants and other toilet squatters find it unbelievably unhygienic that the people in all these Western, "developed" nations would find it somehow acceptable to place their naked, urinating and defecating rear ends on the same surface as the naked, urinating and defecating rear ends of innumerable strangers carrying who knows what kinds of germs and diseases. i guess air tends to be cleaner than most surfaces, and shoes were meant to protect your feet from dirt or crap or urine or what have you.

not that i particularly enjoy encountering a toilet seat littered with dirt-encrusted shoe prints, but try looking at things from other people's points of view once in a while.

Actually I don't have any problem with them squatting on the toilet. I do have a problem with people who are too lazy to lift the toilet seat (am I asking too much??) and generally just don't give a damn about the habits and culture of the people who happen to to be native to the country they chose to live in.

    When my palette broadened from eating RAF, I think it helped my personality and my nervous system showed improvement alongside too.

It broadened just from that?? Really??
