Mono-eating
« on: May 28, 2010, 03:56:56 am »
1 of the very first useful things I learnt from the Instincto Diet was Mono-eating(eating just 1 type of raw food at a time). That is, my digestion was so badly wrecked at the start of going rawpalaeo, asa result of years on SAD etc., that I found my digestion was much easier if I just ate 1 raw food at a time. Recent experimentations with adding in raw spices such as cayenne pepper/black pepper etc., have shown that I don't digest raw meats as well if I include any raw spices, and they  just seem to pass out the other end more quickly without being as well absorbed as before.


Anyway, I'm curious as to how many RPDers go in for mono-eating primarily.

what about another bullet for people that mix meat and fat from an animal or different kinds of animals but no plant foods?

Good point. I've included that now.

ok I put the 3rd. I usually don't do this for taste reasons. probably if I never read anything about rawpaleo or fat I would just be eating meals of various meats or seafoods by themselves. Then there are other things like liver which I could eat alone, but usually ration over time. I have to combine with some kind of fat, to take in enough fat. I think I would have a hard time eating meals of fat only, unless maybe I was doing many meals per day.

One food at a time, of course, unmixed and unspiced.

But then if I’m still hungry, which is most often the case, I choose and eat another food soon afterwards and probably a third one after a few minutes. It seems to hamper digestion to eat too many different foods at the same meal. Eating a single food at each meal could be a good way, probably more the way animals do in the wild  – since finding several different food nearby in few minutes doesn’t happen frequently (except on some see shores where one may easily find crabs, seaweeds, oysters, mussels and other shellfish). But in practice it proves difficult for me and for people who have to work on timely schedules to eat only one food per meal and therefore take several meals daily: two meals a day seems to work fine.

I put choice number 3 but it's by default; I mix fat and lean in the same meal. I very rarely mix organs with lean but do sometimes mix with fat.

Yeah, its strange, because in a modern sense I think there is a difference between 2 and 3. A person eats tongue one meal (or day). and eats a whole fish maybe the next or maybe a bunch of marrow bones. It a clear different WOE than 3. But with an animal eating they would be eating organs and likely muscle meats and fats, so I'm not sure this interupts the natural benefits of 'mono' consumption or is drastically different if they are from the same animal.

If one is eating another food before the other one even digests, even if one goes by Bass's layered model or whatever, I think that disrupts somewhat the definition of mono eating FWIW.

I have a very monotonous, variety-limited diet by choice and preference. I also have one main meal--beef and fat, or beef fat and liver. So I don't mix meats per se. I guess I mix raw meat and raw fat, but it is mostly just all beef, and I don't eat any raw non-animal foods.

I used to have slight digestive issues, early on in this RPD diet, when mixing different raw organs/muscle-meats with each other., due to decades on unhealthy SAD diets. Just eating raw liver or raw kidney at separate times(preferably 30 minutes+ between each different food-intake) would help digestion better. After a while, I was able to include different kinds of raw animal(palaeo) foods without having any issues, due to healing on this diet, but it seems that mixing raw animal foods with raw plant-foods is still a bad idea.

Eating fruits and vegs 1-2 h prior to raw meats and fat is the best option for me.
But I do mix organ-meats with muscle-meats and it's ok

Often I mix innards, fat and lean meat in one meal without any digestive problems. This combination satisfied well and the portion is smaller than eating only meat. Like TylerDurden I consider mixing raw animal foods with raw plant-foods a bad idea.

Francois, you wrote that you are still hungry after eating meat. What kind of food do you eat after meat?

What innards do you typically eat?

Regulary I eat liver, kidney and brain. Brain tastes for me like mascorpone and liver like chocolate when I really need it. :)

I used to eat vegetables after meat, but now I wait about an hour before eating vegetables. When I was in the tropics, I most often didn't eat anything after my raw animal food diner. I suppose that a warm climate diminishes my hunger – and also probably the fact that I was somehow always in some company there. Loneliness makes me eat too much to compensate for boredom!

I have never had the idea to eat vegetables after meat. You don't have problems with this combination?

You wrote that loneliness makes you eat too much to compensate for boredom. It is not only the compensation of boredom I think. Unfortunately for many people food is a vicarious satisfaction for attention and love. Instead of hugs our parents and other people offered sweets, didn't they? And we learned to eat when we want to have physical contact. It is not easy to trash this bad habit.  :(

No, I never had any problems with such meals. But nevertheless, I now pay attention to wait for a while between different kinds of foodstuff, for instance between animal stuff and vegetables and between vegetables and fruits or nuts.

Exactly! So we get an intimate physical contact with something we like (instead of with somebody we love...) and we are somehow pleased!
