Hello my fellow meat eaters
« on: August 25, 2009, 10:59:57 am »
Hello guys and girls!

I just signed up for this forum tonight and am loving the little community that's going on here. I don't really know where to start, but I guess I'll give you the basics: I'm in my twenties and have been eating about 90% (sometimes around 75%, but mostly 90%-100%) raw ever since I was 18. I started out as a raw vegetarian and that's how I got into juicing, organic foods, natural living, etc. I've experimented with many different diets and nothing has ever worked as good as raw foods. Even when I was a raw vegetarian I still ate some raw animal fat (uncooked, unpressed, raw milk cheeses, raw eggs, raw fish). I have always been a big believer in raw saturated fat. Anyway, I've been eating raw meat for about four years now and I am only interested in taking the next step. As far as labels go, I don't know. I wouldn't put myself in a tight category, as far as my diet goes. Right now my diet consists of raw fruit (mostly berries), some wild (raw) honey, fresh greens, some plant fats, such as coconut and avocado, eggs, and plenty of grass fed beef. I'm about 98%-100% at the moment. I also usually drink fresh green juice every morning about 20 min before breakfast. I am a big believer in it because it works for me and has really saved my life in some aspects, since I started out juicing greens, after giving up all the junk. I see a lot of people on here who have different types of diets, where they have different macronutrient ratios, which is cool. Everyone should do what works best for them. I believe in getting the best from both worlds. I'd say my diet is a high fat, moderate protein/carb diet - even though my protein intake is much higher than my carbohydrate intake. I do mixed martial arts and I also do natural bodybuilding, so I pretty much just focus on eating a lot of high quality raw foods. Right now I am also into music and raw food really gives me that mental calrity that I need for experimented. Other than music, diet, working out and my job, I am also studying nutrition, micro-biology/biochemistry in college. That's about it. I think my main drive comes from the fact that I have a lot of friends and family members who are sick and have died from cancer in the past. I guess I just don't want to turn out that way. Anyway, I hope this post wasn't too long and boring.


Cheers,

Stephen

Interesting, your diet, right now, seems to be very Primal-Diet-like(minus the raw dairy component, of course). Anyway, welcome to the board!!! ;D

Good for you, you started raw young at 18!
That's a good way to learn from your elders.

Hello Stephen!
That's amazing that you started at 18!

Welcome :)

My kids started eating raw meats at 3, 4 and 6.
I bet your kids start eating raw meats much earlier.

Welcome! One of my earliest dietary experiments many years ago was vegetarianism, but currently I am trying raw carnivory with much better results.
