I might have to get GS to assign a few more different titles as some of us have rather a lot of posts.

Dear Tyler
Good idea, son, delegate to GS, give him something useful to do instead of pursuing his frivolous playboy lifestyle. I know you know the importance of prioritising your studies. Work hard. Love, Mum

Do whatever you like lady - it's your world...Just create new identities for yourself and you can live a perpetual existence as a forager - in the woods or wherever!

Maybe as a brit, you remember that advert "are you there Sydney"? We could always recall you in spirit...
Was that the one with the jewish mother guilt-tripping her son about calling? God that ran forever

Tyler Why the question mark after the raw? dairy? I have since reconsidered and have decided to cut out the occassional cooked meal/broth in my plan. I had a chili in the slow cooker, made in accordance with wap, and I just couldn't face it. So think might as well go more raw, why not, and keep to the milk and yolk shakes. Yeah the pates cooked but at least its liver. I kinda think the raw meat diet is for therapuetic purposes. Of course anyone can eat whatever they like and be guided by their desires and what their body needs, experimentation is great. But whether one diet fits everyone I doubt. I find it hard enough to eat 'normal' food, raw meat would be impossible for me, even were I convinced it was best.
If this site didn't have a wap raw section I would not have posted here. Isn't the diet I've outlined mostly raw?
I think the spirilina is superfulous now I'm taking clo. I'm just finishing off the box, bought 2 years ago so not taken often. And its vile tasting. I investigated the brand and its minimally processed.
I can't see that the tiny amount of sugar in 80% chocolate is a big deal for a healthy person eating a healthy diet. There lots of evidence that chocolate is healthy. And anything that helps me eat more regularly is good. Thank you for your reply. Sydney

Thanks for your reply tyler and thanks for not flaming me I know you think milk is bad. I haven't read your stcky here yet on dairy- I will eventually, but I have read lots of anti dairy stuff in other places. I think I've got the genetic background to be able to tolerate dairy.

I'm intrigued by your final statement. How will I know if I'm doing well on the diet, the context being I am in good health in the sense of having no obvious symptoms? Whatever, I am not going to go gets tests-I would not know the tests to get or how to interpret them, keep away from doctors on principle, and the nhs doesn't encourage well people to get tests. Well up to now they haven't, as a pensioner they're now encouraging testing for bowel cancer- I got the 'invitation' through my post out of the blue. This just makes me go on the warpath >: Say no more.

I have to say on the general wap diet I have followed up to now(eg some raw but not as much as on the new diet), I have noticed BMs to be totally new experience. I used to think people who extolled their BMs were sad fks, but now I kinda understand where they are coming from. I seldom had problems in this area before as a whole fooder eating meat, so its not some radical change in the BM department, I was actually quite resistant to paying attention to bms, read too many veggie's storys about looking down the toilet. I always thought eat right guys and bms will take care of themselves. But I have to recognise the subjective side is different from what it was. I mention this in reference to indicators of health one should look out for.Sydney

Also I'm wondering what your diet was like that you got the ibs? You probably have posted on this before but being a newbie I don't know how to find. Sydney

Hi Ioanna I really enjoyed reading through your journal here just now. I admire you for being brave enough to bare your soul. The Ibs sounds like its been truly horrific and I am glad the new diet is helping. To make such progress in your education and work under such adverse health condition shows a lot of determination. Well done!  ;D
I especially enjoyed the video of the man in his 90s, and his exposition on mono diet. I haven't found much on the net about it so will see where his links lead. Thanks. Sydney

I like being a forager. If I post too much do I have to leave the woods? I prefer to watch from afar you hunky boys -d taking down the beast. But I wouldn't mind being a egg stealer, I've always want to take up tree climbing more seriously. ;D Sydney

Back again to finish. I also try to take clay which I think is a great thing. The thing is its recommended to take it away from food so it gets forgotten too often. I am interested in anything anyone has to say about clay. I find it a fascinating subject.
The reason for the regime is to eat regularly. I'm sure for many eating irregularly is beneficial, I'm intrigued by paleo views on the subject. But for me I just am running on empty too much of the time. Maybe its about insulin/motabolism?
I am in good health so for me about maintaining health with optimal nutrition but also to fit my lifestyle as a single person. Sydney ;D

 ;D Hi everybody! I am single 61f following wap for 1 1/2 yr. I have just been able to access raw milk so able to individualise the diet. The reason I am on this site is that most wap sites are for families and gormands. But I want to simplify my diet like in the paleo mode. I respect and have learned alot from the paleos but am not convinced about some bottom line things. Maybe I'll write more about that later. Don't want to get flamed for my intro -X
I noticed that in alot of tradition diets, the people don't have alot of variety in their diet. I wanna go with that for its anti-consumerist content. How wonderful is it to not have to cruise the aisles? For sure. I find the simple and small amount of cooking I do effortless so am not out, at least in the short-term, to eliminate cooking.
I am a vata type(if you believe such things-not sure I do). EG naturally slender, don't care about eating, can go long periods without eating, hunger doesn't bother me.
Heres the outline of my eating plan. I want to give it a couple months to see how it goes.   
To be eaten  within 1 hour of awakening and prepared the night before (so minimum effort in am when don't feel like eating). Milk shake with 2 raw egg yolks and small amout of berries(like about a dozen). Within a maximum of 3 hours have supplement meal. Evening meal, Either: liver pate, cheese, bought packaged(but I have investigated the bakery)sourdough bread with liberal slashing of butter ,one slice max., seafood (am inland the fish is old yuk) and raw tomato (thank you Mark Sisson's for the tomato) with olive oil. 1 cup raw milk with yolk. Or: meat and veg dish made with bone broth or soup same. Late evening drink of 80% chocolate made with water topped with a couple tblsp x2 cream.
The supplement meal is 1/4 tsp molasses,1tsp cod liver oil, 2 big gulps kefir,1/2tsp high vitamin butter oil and spirillina(which I just leave in the fridge to hydrate so don't have to mix it up daily
I have to end post a I'm not being allowto stay at the bottom of the page.Sydney

Health / Re: Sunbeds
« on: May 06, 2010, 09:17:58 am »
The vitamin d council have quite a bit of info on sunbeds. I became interested because I am interested in remaining young and avoiding diseases of aging. I am 61 and in good health. For 1 1/2 year I follow a personally adapted wap type diet eg high fat, broths, raw and some femented food. I have just been able to access raw milk so am making that (with raw egg yolks) the foundation of my diet. I don;t mind a bit of meat but I didn't like it raw when I tried it out of curiosity. I have come to this forum for debate on side issues like this present one of sunbeds.
The sunbed place I go to in the uk, well i can't imagine them know much of anything eg min wage employees. But the brand is the same as ones recommened at the vit d council. There is quite alot of evidence linking diseases to latitude. People like the inuit would be out in the sun all day so have longer periods to get the rays. Also they ate fermented fish oils (I take fermented cod liver oil supplement). I only started the sun bed this winter. And i strictly limit my time usually only 6 minutes. My feeling is the tan says you are getting the d. If anyone thinks this isn't true i'd be interested in hearing their thought. Personally I'd rather take the bed than take lab produced vit d. Seems more natural. I'm not convinced at this point that one can get enough d from food. Again am interested in others views. 
The thing about the sunbed that sorta surprised me was the psychological effect. I really enjoy it! Its really relaxing. Maybe I've got a marginal bit of seasonal affective disorder I didn't know about but the bed definately raised my spirits.Sydney
