Nice article, I enjoyed it very much!  ;) ;)

I had a couple of goats in my yard that I was using for milk, and, you know, I was tired of milking them, so I slaughtered them.

That sounded so rough heh

That's really cool man! I like the article. It seems fairly accurate of an overview of raw paleo. The people commenting are batshit crazy but some actually are smart enough to know what's good.

One commenter said it requires more energy to digest raw food than cooked. Where did that nonsense come from? Veggies that are impossible for is to digest in the first place?

Anyways, thanks for sharing!

Awesome, what a great article.  Vice does a very good job of covering "fringe" topics so I am glad to see there was no bias, just a simple Q and A.  I am jealous of your meat dedicated fridge!

Wonderful read. Of course, the article is  trying to portray SB as a dangerous lunatic. It will take some time before they do serious interviews without mocking us in some way.

Some amusing comments such as " your fridge looks like it belongs to Satan".

Anyway, I am glad it got printed in the Daily Mail. The more coverage we get, the better.

I found the article disheartening. Derek was mocked pretty blatantly, and the photographs they printed portrayed him as a fringe goofball. This might appeal to adventurous young men who are still in a developmental stage where they get kicks from grossing others out with their lifestyle choices, but it's hard for me to imagine that it will appeal to anyone else.

Did you get paid to do this interview Derek?

Tyler I totally disagree, its printing in the daily mail just makes it lose any credibility.  They are likening his meat "addiction" to the same stories they run about women being addicted to eating personal care products like deodorant and "vapor rubs".  At least in the vice article they don't use that terminology.

Well, thanks for continually putting yourself out there Derek.  I think the pictures are great, maybe its just Derek's hair cut, lol.  The photo of you and your girlfriend is ADORABLE!  I can tell now why you are dating this "older" woman, her youthful soul definitely shows through.

Jessica, I agree, that's a wonderful picture. Even though they were trying to make him seem crazy, that picture makes him seem the opposite.  :)

Thanks for your support.

 It was a real on the fly thing, the reporter was couch surfing across the country looking for stories, and was staying with a friend of my girlfriend, and one day out of the blue they just stopped by. Honestly I had given up on reaching the mainstream....... its funny how things turn out..

I must admittingly agree with Tyler that without the appearance of lunacy this kind of story will not be covered. Tyler and many others have tried doing serious interviews with limited success. I reach people who wouldn't hear of the raw paleo diet any other way, by being who I am... (the milker/ slayer of goats and proud owner of Satan's refrigerator)


Eric, I love you... and no I didn't get paid, I am a cheap slut, engaged in a labor of love, and should not be confused for a media whore.
I acknowledge your cynicism. You are right, I can be seen as a fringe goofball, who by some miracle has managed to survive eating a diet that will likely kill me some day, If that's what people want to see that's what they will get. For those who see something more, I welcome you aboard with an open heart(dripping with the lifes blood that nourishes both body and soul.) urging those who hunger for a better life to take a big bite.

The huffing-ton post called today, and I did a 10 minute interview over the phone.
It went rawsomely well.
Hopefully it will broadcast to hundreds of thousands of people.

In future interviews, please make sure they write "raw, palaeolithic diet", not just "palaeolithic diet". Otherwise there is confusion.

Derek,   I would like to suggest that the  next time (and I'm sure there will be, you write so well, and come across in videos as a together guy) you do an interview that you include some little tid bits about why it's working for you, beyond the blood and guts angle.  As in, how stable your blood sugar is now and how that has led to your body creating less and less cortisol thus reducing general inflamation and allowing your body to heal..  And any other examples where by someone who is reading or watching can correlate with mainstream current medical advice (less carbs, omega threes, no sugar)   They will be quicker to understand if they can relate to what they are already hearing in the news. 
  You might want to think about figuring out how to do more of these ( and I'd agree, a different hair style might help, but then maybe not).   I think you have talent and a natural authenticity that could play out well for you long term.

He is beautifully RAW!
Please, change your hairstyle ONLY if you feel like it. Do not become "pretty" but fake like those models floating on the sidebar of your interview.

The pics of you I like the most is the first one.  Your eyes and smile look so shiny!!  ;)
Whose pans are those on the background? heh

Sure he has!  8)

The video you linked to here does not feature you or any aspect of your story. It's a blonde woman talking for ~2 minutes.

The next interviews will be more impressive when they show you sick, then your diet, then your work butchering, then your hobby... pole fitness!

sorry guys, i've really had my head in the books and swamped with work lately, but i just wanted to check in because a friend of mine wanted to show me this article and i said OMG THATS SABERTOOTH. hahahhaha... well congrats sabertooth! as you get more publicity, hopefully you learn how to better share your story/take more control from the interviewer and the interviewers come to better appreciation and respect who you are and where you've been. and yes, your girlfriend is so darn cute!

LOL sorry I ever mentioned it.  Derek said he was kind of caught off guard, perhaps it was also not his best hair day.  He looks the picture of health otherwise, good, tight, blemish free skin, no bags under the eye, healthy weight, kind of weird red tint to the teeth but well ignore that!  I am surprised there aren't as many negative comments as I expected.

It looked to me like they purposefully took a picture after he ate blood to show him looking crazy. IMO he looks great either way.
