Well, forgive me, father, for I have sinned etc.-

As usual, around Christmas time, I have, mainly for social reasons,  gone way out of my usual dietary boundaries. I have eaten several different types of Christmas cakes/puddings, plus some stuffing, plus some mulled wine and champagne and the like. I have only held to eating the raw turkey and raw goose raw. Tip:- when buying fowl fattened on grain, choose goose as the red meat is way more appetising. Trouble is getting the sickly white fat off them as it is inedible raw. By contrast, I have no problem with the white fat from grassfed lamb as it tastes great. Things will go back to normal once I finish off the stuffing etc., around the New Year.

It may sound odd, but there are certain psychological reasons for  my "falling off the waggon" in this way. First of all, occasionally eating a little non-rawpalaeo does bring back memories of  what a ghastly time I had, healthwise, in pre-rawpalaeo days,  so, oddly, it acts as a booster to carry on eating raw. Indeed,  when I've done something bad or stupid, I will sometimes deliberately eat something revolting like cooked junk food(eg:- doner kebabs) as a "punishment", as I then feel bodged and overly hot etc. afterwards. Plus, I find it sometimes difficult to adapt to social situations. When one meets others, one can't always choose mineral-water and has to choose tea etc. if I'm offered biscuits, I'll eat just one or two of them, and so on. Christmas is a really difficult time to avoid eating some cooked foods. Fortunately, we UKers don't have Thanksgiving.

This season I got some cooked meat... cooked paleo.
But I draw the line at paleo.

I forgive you.

I'm looking into more rawpalaeo non-dietary ideas such as cold baths and sungazing etc. I can't stand the cold baths for more than 45 minutes, and I prefer only 30 minutes, but I reckon once a day is fine. It's just that I recall a post by Lex mentioning how extra hardiness can make plants last longer.

Tyler 30mins in  ice cold water is plenty. Fantastic!!! How is the rewarm after? Do you shiver violently or are you able to warm without much shivering?

I don't notice any shivering at all. My body  seems to get used to the feeling of  cold quite quickly while in the bath, though after 30 minutes my toes may get a little numb and stiff. My limbs on the surface feel pretty cold to touch  for some time after the bath, but I'm pretty sure that, underneath, the body is pumping out lots of heat despite that, given that I don't shiver etc.

The numbness and stiffness went away when I continued to expand CT, over summer it was not as cold, this winter my numb stiff extremities returned, and haven't seemed to shift away-yet. I think it is because I did frequent CT 2-5x/day last winter. Until now I was only doing 1longer shower after my warm shower in the morning.
My hair doesn't seem to turn out nice without warm water, shaving my legs is also troublesome without it. I don't think that warm is a problem. I think it is good to tone and train nerves and vessels with both. Maybe frequency is key.

As I have progressed with my RPD diet I have increasingly found that I cannot tolerate cooked, processed foods as well as before. In the last c. 4 years, I have found that I must not eat more than a small amount of cooked processed foods at a time  or I will soon vomit them all out. Also, with some highly processed foods, I will find they become very hot within my body, which is a bad sign.

I can still tolerate a few cooked, processed foods like rice or spaghetti to some extent. Though I very rarely try them, these days.

I am currently in a situation where I can buy half a dozen different types of raw muscle-meat from raw wild game but cannot get hold of the raw organ-meats thereof. So I have now taken to buying raw organ-meats from local supermarkets. In the region where I currently live, most cattle etc. are not as intensively farmed as in the US, so do eat some grass, but likely won't be 100% grassfed.

Tomorrow I will be eating raw spleen for the first time. For some strange reason no farmer was ever willing to provide that for me over the past decade.

Why don't you order some grass fed organ-meat online? Whenever I go to the UK I order from Fordhall farm.

I'm annoyed. I'd been trying to find  a source of raw honey, but, although they mostly have organic honey, none have had raw. I tried again recently at a local market. The first honey-stall-seller mocked my mentioning "raw" and "unpasteurised" honey when talking to his pal on the same stall, as though the very idea of  "raw" honey was illogical and absurd. Another honey-seller assured me that his honey was all raw when I mentioned that I was only looking for raw honey to make mead. I bought a little  of the latter's honey in desperation, but, in hindsight, there is no reason to believe he was telling the truth - after all, if his honey was genuinely raw, he would have labelled his jars  raw  that's for sure, as that would raise the price.


I'm annoyed by all this....

Try to get them to sell you an entire "frame", which has several pounds of honeycomb in it.  It also has pollen, propolis, and grubcomb as well, usually. That would definitely be raw.

I'm just trying to think of a good story you could give them to avoid their questions.  Maybe tell them you have a sick pet who has an illness that only fresh raw honeycomb can cure.

  Thanks for the offer, but I would far rather have another go on my own as I would feel   like a cripple if I had to depend on others for my food-supply. Besides, there's the fun in the  sheer effort of searching for the right source - sometimes it  even leads to finding other types of raw foods(just recently, for example, my raw honey search led me to find the biggest raw prawn I have ever seen, something like a foot long.
 I think CK  has a point. Like with my own  past habit of searching out farmers' markets, the key is to get to the source directly. Getting a whole "frame" might be an idea.

Well, I have been cut off from Internet for most of a week so far. I will be back  fully online hopefully on tuesday. It is really annoying that  not only are internet service providers becoming very slow indeed in fixing simple technical problems(due to deliberately not employing enough staff) but Internet cafes are disappearing all over the City. I had to search the poorest parts of town for some time before I could find one.

are there not public libraries with internet access?  the public library is perhaps my favorite institution in the united states, they are so amazing!

also, are you fasting? do you do that often? if not what is the purpose or the cause for this fast?

I used to fast a lot more  in the first 8 years of going raw. I  used to practice Intermittent Fasting (IF) a lot but could only do  the usual(1 large meal every 24 hours  eaten within a 4-hour period, plus 2-3 whole-day fasts every fortnight) not the alternate-day fasting where one has to go without food for 48 hours. Then I started backsliding in recent years, but am now indulging in IF again. There is a lot of scientific data on IF:-

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intermittent_fasting

http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=how-intermittent-fasting-might-help-you-live-longer-healthier-life

Anyway, I always feel a bit calmer and more on the ball if I do IF. Constantly eating small meals throughout the day just makes me feel sluggish over time.

I have become somewhat lackadaisical as regards past guidelines. Very foolish of me. I intend to do more IF(one large meal a day eaten within 4 hour period every 24 hours, plus 2_5 whole-day fasts every fortnight). I also intend to do more rigorous near-100% RPD standards. Up till now, I have accepted eating a few grains or pasteurised dairy products here and there, and I am increasingly worried about epigenetic etc. effects therefrom.

Fortunately, for me, I have no come across sources of raw lamb organ-meats(tongue, kidneys, liver and heart)  and raw bone-marrow, which is nice, given that I have been denied such for 2.5 years up till now, for various reasons. Not sure re their 100% grassfed status, but, since I get raw wild game from the same source, I am certain that such raw organ-meats will at least come from only partially-grainfed animals.

I recently finally came across a source of raw tongue. Hopefully, in a few weeks when I get back  from holiday, I will be able to get hold of raw suet or raw marrow as well as the rest of the innards.

OK? I have decided to do GS's suggestion of an e-book on the raw, palaeolithic diet. Any suggestions welcome!

For the moment, I have  designated certain chapters to:-  the logic/common-sense of raw foodism/introduction; the harm done by cooking(the longest chapter); the history of raw foodism(weston-price etc.); tips on where to locate high quality raw foods. Not sure what other chapters I need to also include.

A good book in this diet realm usually has some life stories that are interesting. Even if they barely seem relevant to the food. People will continue reading through something entertaining, and people give up on textbook style.

By all means you should include the facts, alongside the stories.

I think people are turned off by the idea of having great recipes they love the taste of and not being able to eat them anymore. For example, I love Mexican food. Simply by using sea salt and raw dried Chile ground up with some lime and cilantro, you have a raw Mexican meat right there. But people don't think of using higher quality ingredients to do their own thing. A 'recipe' section or principles behind dish creation section would be welcome, imo.

Living a raw lifestyle, including things about food storage, food prep, high meat, eating out, finding roadkill, eating wild animals, foraging wild food, etc. But that may just be what eve suggested.

Personally, I have found all the stickies here to be packed full of awesome need to know stuff, search those and see what you can consolidate.
