Ticketyboo!
« on: October 02, 2009, 06:45:54 am »
Sweet, love this forum! ;D I used to read the rawpaleodiet yahoo forum
from time to time but I always found the layout and the search-topic-function
to be quite nightmarish so I was very delighted to find this place. Thank you!

I started a blog couple of years ago to share my own experiences and improve
my writing skills but I haven't updated it for a while now. I hope to find time
during the following months to breathe fresh life into it and share the latest as
heaps has happened since my last post there.

Here's the link: http://primaldiet.blogspot.com/

Wow, great blog.

As far as holes in the teeth go, vitamin D3, vitamin K2 and other nutrients reportedly help with that, and avoiding refined carbs helps too, of course. I had a big hole all the way to the root in one tooth and it partially filled in on my raw carnivore diet. Also, my loose teeth firmed up. Still get some tartar on my lower teeth, though. Magnesium and calcium are two of the other nutrients that may help too, given the success of some here with dolomite supplements, magnesium-rich plant foods, etc.

BTW, what does ticketyboo mean?  ;D

Being an American who has not travelled to places where this term is commonly used, I had not heard it.  Fortunately, Google came to my rescue. :)

I put a link to your blog in the Journals section a while back(also on rawpaleodiet yahoo group links section,I think).

Yup. I do weights 2-3 times a week. I still follow Stuart McRobert's
(Hardgainer) advice and find Strength Training Anatomy by
Frederic Delavier quite useful book on exercise technique.

Suggests you get big with few comprehensive exercises like deadlifts,
squats, dips, etc and heaps of recovery time (rest). Stretching and
plenty of warm-up reps.

I had a car crash and was out of gym for 7 months. I started my dead-
lifts with 10 kg, my knees were still killing me and it felt really heavy.
Year later on his program I was doing deadlifts w/100 kg on the bar and
legs looked really good + very strong back.

If I didn't have so many gaps with no gym and eating rubbish I'm sure
my weights would be pretty impressive by now.

I used to backpack in France and Greece mostly, not any more, much prefer to
drive around in a car nowadays. Eski or two full of meat in the boot 8)

If you have wheels I think UK and Germany are the best for finding gorgeous
organic produce that you can collect from the farm gate. Also it is very common
to find game in almost any butcher's shop in those countries. Walked out of a
local boucherie here in Rye, E. Sussex with 2.5 kg of very fresh venison and a
wild duck yesterday.

France is great for fresh fish and almost every Carrefour has lovely fatty lamb
ribs (non-organic) for a very reasonable price if you get desperate. Fish in
Greece is good as well, any decent meat almost impossible to find, especially
if you head to the islands. Used to eat mostly vegetarian when backpacking
over there. Although when I was in Corfu couple of weeks ago, the meat from
a supermarket was surprisingly good tasting..

Eastern-Europe and Balkans (did Croatia and Montenegro this summer) is a
nightmare IMHO for keeping paleo and I recommend taking as much food as
possible with you.

In places like Estonia and Finland you can get really cheap game when it's hunting
season presuming you can fit 30 or more kilos of meat in your fridge. And you
can always resort to going to a supermarket to get prepacked organic meat.
Otherwise Scandinavia is pretty poor place re easy access to quality paleodiet
friendly food.

In the end I guess it all comes down to how many contacts you have in the
specific country you are planning to go, how well you speak the language
and how good looking you are O0

Personally I would never limit myself to visiting only those countries that
perfectly cater to my needs. The beautiful girls in Romania or standing
underneath a waterfall on a lovely island of Samothraki in Greece far
outweights the horrors of eating a bowl of rice or baked potato :P
