Primal Diet / Re: Salt and Hydrochloric Acid

My advice, go rawpalaeo for now, add some HCL tablets(there are so many ways that primal dieters develop health-problems, such as overeating or drinking lots of veggie-juice or drinking raw dairy etc., that rawpalaeo is a safer bet).
Salt was only used in Neolithic times to add taste to some cooked meats and mainly to preserve meats from rotting. Salt causes high blood-pressure and is very nasty long-term, so avoid it like the plague.

How should I go about that rawpaleo... Could you briefly tell me what that means? I don't take dairy in any shape or form now... I do drink vegetable juices (one glass in the morning), eat like 3-4 large tomatoes, eat raw meat twice a day, 6-8 eggs over the day, eating two at a time, a little fruit at times, and raw lamb fat and raw honey with every meal. Sometimes nuts. I eat potatoes or rice when I feel the need for starchy food.

    I got it from a rancher/slaughterer.  I can't get it often and not sure I want to.  Blood has such a stigma, probably cause it's the realist food on Earth!  I mean it's blood gosh darn it!  It's what feeds animals' cells.

Do you get it on the same day as the kill? Or later? Doesn't it clot? Do you get it in a mason jar?

Sorry for these questions, but I totally have no idea of these things.

   I like my butter cultured and my blood fresh.  Ghee might be good when you're afraid in the beginning and blutwurst, how old is that?  Do they precook it?  Does it have preservatives it it?  Rice or other grain?  Paleo people and animals drink/drank the blood first and saved the meat for later.  It works out best this way.  

    I'm kidding!  No I'm not.  This is a weird forum sometimes.  We all should make some reasonable sense.  Blutworst just sounds the worst to me.

Where and how do you get your blood? I can only imagine getting it when I butcher myself, which is something I would like to try, but not an option to do on a regular basis, at least not for the next few years.

You might consider making ghee - some of us who cannot eat butter have tried it and found it good. Here is the best info on making it IMHO:

I know Ghee. But why should I make it? It's not raw afaik. Do you believe it would help with the problem?
I mean I'm not really looking for an alternative fat source, I want to find a solution to the digestion problem.

Maybe you can get edible blood w├╝rst? (not available in Canada) Or meat that still has the blood in it?

Blutwurst is boiled, so unfortunately not.

In Japan, the traditional public bathrooms are for squatting. And usually there is not shit where you put your feet!

No male has ever lived past 115. Who knows if we can even digest raw food past a certain age.

That statement just can't hold water. There is no way of knowing that no male has ever lived past 115. I guess what you mean is that there is no evidence for this.

hmm, well firstly have you tried talking HCL tabs? taking 1-2 tabs is a way of actually testing your levels, and if there is no effect, you can supplement meals with the tabs, at least for a short term solution.

I didn't even know that something like that existed... thank you.

have you tried animal fats instead of butter?

I've stopped taking butter because I don't like it and it makes me feel bad (I think.) I mainly eat lamb suet and the fat from around the stomach. Also bone marrow when I can get it.

I've found that salt is necessary when eating cooked meat.

I haven't eaten cooked meat for two months...


Thank you for the input. I had read about the necessity of taking salt several times, so I was sceptical to begin with, but cast that aside for the time it worked. PD seems to work for a lot of people so I thought I should follow it in every aspect to give it a fair trial.

Right now I have to take almost a teaspoon of salt with every meal so that it doesn't hurt... If it only takes as little as you say later, I'll gladly take the salt because that experience wasn't something I'd want to repeat.

Primal Diet / Salt and Hydrochloric Acid
« on: March 03, 2010, 10:07:25 pm »

let me introduce myself real quick. I've been on the Primal Diet for about two months now, previously I did WAP-style eating. I live in Germany, and I don't know if there is anybody else who is doing the Primal Diet at all...

my post is very long, so I made the most important parts bold.

 Some nights ago, I woke up with a bloated belly and a lot of pain. Because of that I went to the bathroom, had diarrhoea and had to throw up. Then went to bed again. After a little while, the pain came back and increased until I had to throw up again and had diarrhoea again. The whole process went on for the about half the night and half the next day and involved a lot of pain.
 From that time on, I wasn't able to eat anything without feeling bloated and experiencing pain. The pain was strong right after eating, then got less and after some hours, it became the worst. I also experienced diarrhoea and very smelly flatulence. I felt generally weak and uncomfortable.

I'm almost sure that the problem was a lack of hydrochloric acid. When I threw up that night, I did not have a sensation of acid. I have had similar experiences of feeling sick and bloated, having to throw up and diarrhoea at night me a couple of times before I started the primal diet. However, then I had a strong acid feeling in my throat when throwing up, and after throwing up the pain subsided.

So yesterday I tried taking sea salt, which is supposed to be bad for me.... but that really helped me to finally digest some food! And now I can't digest anything without taking salt with it.

The problem however, that I have now, is that I get a headache, feel tired and feel brainfog as well. Aajonus writes that most headaches are related to salt consumption. So I'm really in a quandary here... I choose headache over the inability to digest anything, but I don't like the headache / fatigue / brainfog!

Some additional info / question:
I cannot handle dairy well, even butter, as it makes me bloated (with or without honey.) I also have trouble digesting fibrous food and sweet fruit. Both of them and dairy give me bad gas. In the past, I have always had serious problems with my digestive system, stomach aches were frequent. This somewhat improved with eating less dietary fiber. Years ago I have also taken medication for Heliobactor pilori.
In addition, a week or two ago I ate a whole mature coconut in one day after reading about the benefits of coconut. My juicer (a hand held model) does not produce any significant amount of coconut cream when juicing the meat, so I just ate it. That was a mistake, as on the next day, I had a lot of stool and I could see the coconut in there. After that, I have had some flatulence and some discomfort in my stomach. Could it be that this alkalinized my digestive system so much that now I'm unable to produce sufficient hypochloric acid?

Sorry about the length!!!
Any input will be greatly appreciated.
