These are the fermented foods that Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride recommended in those videos that I can recall trying:
- sauerkraut (and a nasty-tasting mix of cultured cabbage, radish and ginger that I'm currently trying to force down but will never buy again)
- fermented coconut water (raw coconut vinegar)
- fermented grains (sourdough bread, whiskey, vodka, beer, vinegars)
- fermented meats (Natasha probably means traditional sausages rather than high meat--I've tried both)
- fermented fish (Natasha probably means fermented CLO rather than stink fish--I've only tried fermented CLO)
- fermented dairy products (cheese, yoghurt, buttermilk)

You can check out her website about the various fermented foods she recommends. They're all anaerobic fermentations based on kefir / whey. The fermented grains drink Gates sells is "officially gluten free," at least that's what it says on her website. That website is really amazing in terms of the prices she charges for some stuff. If you check the bacteria that are in her fermented grains drink, two are just regular yogurt cultures, one is baking yeast, and one is a quite common probiotic. No magic here.

This is true! I forget his name but there was a well known karate (point) fighter who published a few how-to books. He mentions one of his main reasons for success was that he incorporated fencing foot work.

Yeah, but in fencing and karate point fighting, the fighters move back and forth on a straight line and don't really move sideways a lot. In full-contact combat sports, sidewards movement is very important, so I could see problems with fencing footwork there.

Not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but I'm quite sure that what Aajonus means when he said he cured his "autism" is that he has / had asperger syndrome, which is much milder than what people commonly refer to as autism.

Look, I'm not talking about strip-mall karate/taekwondo/etc.. I'm talking about arts like Tai chi, xing yi, ba gua, (though I'm not excluding karate/TKD/etc. either) etc. Granted, the lines get extremely blurry, but basically, I'm talking about family systems and monk systems.  MMA is just a mish-mashed smorgasboard of oversimplified, crude versions of the real arts. A skilled practitioner of one of the "pure" family systems can easily defeat the biggest, most muscular, fastest, strongest MMA fighters. 

. . . . .

Sounds like pure fantasy to me. Not even one of these guys has given in to the temptation of making a fortune in pro MMA?

Meanwhile, though, I'd put myself against any of the MMA fighters in a no-holds-barred match, and maybe even an MMA-style bout, and I'm only about 140 pounds, and 5'8".  It's not size/speed/strength, it's training. I am extremely fast, but that's not why I feel sure of my prowess. I was fast before I got the best of my training, but I wasn't nearly as good then.

Why don't you enter an MMA competition then?

    Why do you use the vinegar? Do the washnuts not work well enough alone? I do appreciate that you gave a full explanation :)

    I think I will just use egg again next time.  I used acv unfiltered raw this time.  Although it did clean my hair well. I found egg to be less hassle.

I don't use the vinegar with the intention of cleaning. The washnuts clean, but they lower the PH, so the vinegar is supposed to restore it to somewhat acid like it should be. I use it because it seems to help with the dandruff and with the skin, too. After drying off, I usually also apply coconut oil to the skin of the face, neck, shoulders and hands, or if it's sunny and I'm outside to the area exposed to the sun.

I've been surfing a lot latley, somtimes 4 hours per day.  My skin never gets wrinkly.  I think it has too do with water temps maybe?  Usually start to get wrinkly when I'm in hot water for prolonged periods(i.e jacuzzi)

Might also have something to do with the salt content...

Ah yeah... I forgot to say, I mix the apple cider vinegar with water, 1 part vinegar to 5 or more parts of water. Originally I used the vinegar undiluted, but it seemed like a waste, and the smell was intense. Now I wash with the washnut water, rinse, take a cold shower and finish by pouring the water-vinegar mix over my head, rubbing it into the scalp and also over my face, neck, shoulders and hands. Then dry off without further rinsing.

I washed my hair with eggs last time.   Next time I'll try an after rinse of raw ACV and see how that goes.  Thanks.  Do you think it will be ok after eggs?

I don't see any reason why it would not be ok.

    Thank you Hans!

    I've always hated the smell of vinegar.  I can tolerate it a little bit better now.

My girlfriend also hates it. I don't really understand her aversion, but many people seem to share it.

I use the vinegar after washing with the nuts to restore the ph and because it seems to work better to keep the dandruff in check. I also rub it on my face, neck, shoulders and hands. Seems to have a nice effect on the skin. You could of course also use lemon juice in its place if you want to give it a shot.

So... the intention for using vinegar is a different one from washing. I don't understand how lemon juice would help in washing the hair. Certainly I couldn't use vinegar to wash my hair.

Actually, raw mutton is fattier than raw lamb, by quite a bit.

Can you get that easily in the UK? Seems to be quite traditional there.

    The hardcore pders I know use egg.  I'm not sure if whipped or slippery.  I think he says use lemon for your armpits.  How do you use the washnuts?

I boil them in water for 5-10 min and then use that as soap. Cause it's like water it takes a little to get used to it, but it works quite well for me.

Lemon is also good for a hair shampoo. I think AV recommends that and I have seen it mentioned in Ayurvedic books.

AV recommends using an egg. Lemon, would that work? It's acidic, for washing you need an alkaline medium, don't you? I use the washnuts, other people use baking soda.

Human baby.

Is that an answer to my question or a suggestion for raw animal fat?  :D
OK, I got it  -[

I would love to try mutton.  I heard it has much less fat than lamb though.

I'd love to try it, too, but there is zero demand (the seller said) so I can't find it. Don't animals in general have more fat when they age, however?

I marinate my scalp with it after washing my hair (with washnuts) when I have problems with dandruff. It helps somewhat.

the vast majority such as the vaccines-nonsense are way overblown(I am aware that a very tiny percentage 0.00001 or something might get a  reaction to vaccines but autism is something one gets well before the vaccine-stage, at the very least).

Reactions to vaccines sure are common, so if you mean that the warnings regarding dangers of vaccinations in general are overblown, then you're mistaken. I have a big scar from a childhood vaccination, and my mom got a serious reaction from her TBE vaccination so she said she'll never do it again. Of course we didn't report those, and I'm sure most people don't report them...

I've tried the 30 bananas a day thing for improving my tolerance of fruit. I ate 30-40 bananas a day, meals every 2-3 hours felt best. At first I tried eating every hour, but it didn't agree with my digestion. The first days were terrible, bloating, smelly farts etc. The farts persisted, but they had a neutral smell after some days, and my well-being improved a lot. I stopped after almost two weeks, though, because I became ravenously hungry for meat. As a result, I can now have fruit meals without becoming sleepy afterwards. Like actionhero said, though... not a good idea to combine them with too much fat. And make sure to drink enough water.

As a consequence he told me that in Japan and other countries (Korea and China) you even boil lettuce before you eat it unless you want to get sick.

LOL that's why you shouldn't rely on heresay...

Very good Hans,you have your criteria for your version of the perfect place.So,where is it? ;)

Like I said before, you could live with the Nenets  :D
Or anywhere where you can supply yourself by hunting.
Germany is a good place for individualists, and people at least recognize that some people eat differently (like vegetarians...) whereas that is pretty much an unknown concept to many Japanese. However, you'd have to make sure you have good supplies, so either live in a big city or a rural place where you have the farm nearby.
I was thinking Thailand because of the cheap supplies, great beef and lots of fruit, and Thai people seem to be much more open than Japanese, but I don't really know for lack of real-world experience. I'd like to travel there some time though... A lot of Germans retire in Thailand, seems like a good place to live.

If you want raw seafood, you might as well choose Korea over Japan, because it's much cheaper there. Koreans eat RAF dishes just like the Japanese do. If you live in Taiwan, you can have both raw seafood and an ample supply of fruit and coconuts. But again, you'd have to have a job that keeps you from having business dinners. I mean it's not like you can just order sashimi instead, not every restaurant has sashimi.

Hans89,I didn't say that Japan was the perfect place.I'm saying it's the best overall compared to other countries.I don't think anyone can come up with a "better" country overall.Price is not in the equation.Who says you can't live on raw seafood alone?I didn't get the memo ;) I agree with you on the subject of fats,but Paleo man ate what he could find.If there was only fish,then that's what he would eat.

There might be a small area somewhere(like L.A. or some island I don't know about) that is better,but in terms of a country,Japan wins.

Have you ever been to Japan? How can you say it's the best "overall" when the social acceptance is nil? Yeah there are certain raw dishes, but if you just buy meat at the butcher and eat it raw, you will be considered crazy just as much as in the US. Why is the cost not in the equation? Do you have unlimited funds available? OK I'll take your word that it's possible to live on raw seafood alone. Personally I don't think that that would be sustainable over an extended time and I couldn't bear it anyway.

What you'd have to be looking for would be a country that allows for great freedom of individual expression and with availability of grass or wild meat and wild caught seafood. Japan has one of those three, and imho the least important one.

If you're not sure about social acceptance,then you're not answering the question.Japan has it.They eat a ton of stuff raw.They eat raw animal foods individually, in groups,in private and in public.The meat supply might be expensive,but raw seafood is abundant.In addition,there was no mention of cost/price in the original question.Other benefits are that they're not big on dairy, flour(bread..etc) and sweet products.

Thailand has the best beef?Compared to Canada and New Zealand?Really?Of course Thailand and Phillipines are cheaper,but neither are known for their raw animal dishes.Phillipines are known for Bolabok(spelling?) and Chicken Adobo.Both are great but cooked.Thailand is known for its wonderful Pad Thai and curry dishes.Their meat/seafood dishes again are cooked.Japan is specifically KNOWN for raw animal foods:Sushi and Sashimi.

Los Angeles is not a country ;) I can't think of a more raw animal food abundant & accepting country than Japan.It couldn't possibly be any more obvious. -d

You got that wrong. Japanese do eat a lot of things raw, but if you eat raw paleo, you will be regarded as crazy. Japanese don't like individualists. As long as you have the "white guy" bonus, they will accept it and even show curiosity, but if you want to do business with Japanese you better share that cooked food with them. Sushi means rice with vinegar, btw.

Also you can't live from raw seafood alone. I can see there would be a major problem in finding a good supply of raw fat. If you want to eat high carb instead of high fat, be prepared for fruit prices that will blow your mind.

Fortunately for me, the various conspiracy-theory-related sites re autism are considered absolutely laughable by most scientists,

... as is RPD. I'll never understand how you can be so close-minded towards anything outside of the scientific mainstream while at the time advocating eating raw rotten meat.

Japan is a bad idea unless you are very rich. Meat is EXPENSIVE, not to mention organic or grassfed (if you can even find it locally). Japanese are polite and all, but not really known for their individualism. Thailand would be much better from a supply POV. AV said they have the best beef and Thailand is cheap. Not sure about social acceptance.

I guess Siberia / where the Nenets live... Supply would be good in any area where you can go hunting easily.
