Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / Re: Best water source?
« on: Yesterday at 05:37:58 am »
I don't know for sure, but I have a distiller and never feel that my thirst isn't being quenched.  Nor do I experience the notion of it leeching minerals.  I know it's a heavily debated subject, but when you think about it: your stomach usually has some food residue or food in it.  That food is replete with minerals.  Those minerals will instantly be taken into the distilled water.   If in doubt you can always add mineral drops from the sea or a pinch of salt to a quart of water.    But having said that,  if I had a pristine source of spring water that I KNEW the mineral balance it had, I'd opt for it.

they are only going to take hold and grow if you give then what the donor was eating, at least in terms of percentages of carbs, fats, and protein, especially milk products containing lactose and other prebiotics.     For instance, I THINK, you could implant a carb eater's poop in me and nothing much would happen except the look on my face while it was being done.   But since you do include dairy, you might take a trip to the Alps and find some really healthy specimen and see if you could entertain them with the thought. 
   Funny story,  The guy who I got my probiotics from, We used to joke, although we both were serious, about going to Africa and collecting Masai tribe poop, and then selecting the healthy strains ( done by some sort of spinning tech. ) and marketing it.  I guess I was ahead of my time, cause that was about 20 years ago. 
   Do let us know what results you obtain from this or your implant experiments.

suggest to them to soak and rinse a couple of times for at least a day.  Cook thoroughly.

I've gone salt, and no salt. Both are fine for me. Since I like the taste, I use it.  Some do well, some don't.   When I cut it out for some time, I was hoping for a benefit.

It's just a matter of what wattage your light bulb is.  Or as mentioned get a carboard box or  cooler.   When I used my medium sized cooler, I would place the glass liter full of to be yogurt and then on the other side a two liter glass bottle with lid of very warm water.  It heated the cooler nicely.  Just go to the store and get an easy to read thermometer.   You'll have better success having temps closer to the body temp.

I just watched a lecture showing how the much of the hunter gatherer data is based on the Hazda's.  The speakers' opinion is that that date is rubbish since it's all based on current hunting practices and not the huge animals ( much larger than current elephants) that they hunted for millions of years.  They currently have no elephants, no rhinos, no hippos to hunt. Thus the protein to fat ratio is off, and they are eating more plants to survive than presumably when they had an abundance of large animals to gorge on,  including huge brains, back fat, and bone marrow for everyone in the tribe. 
    More and more I see talks that are confirming that the the preferred brain fuel is ketones, and not glucose.  Where ketogenic diets are used to heal the parts of the brain in the elderly that can no longer run on glucose.  Pet scans showing healing when ketones are used as fuel.    My guess, just like myself with access to incredibly good sources of fat, I have little need for non animal foods, nor desire.  My ketones average above three milimole

Okay, when I was in touch with a company who produced various probiotics ( the president made his fortune by creating and patenting a strain that was utilized in yogurts all throughout south korea to combat a certain bacteria that caused stomach ulcers and eventually stomach cancer ) I was able to buy one kilo containers of incredibly high count single strains.  Mostly bifida bacteria types.  I bought it at wholesale prices so that I was able to use quite large amounts to make yogurts. The numbers of bacteria were billions of times higher than you could get out of a capsule.  I would use a tablespoon at a time.    But now thinking about it, I could have, you could,,  pasteurize your whey, and then innoculate it to just acid levels and then use that to make your yogurt.  You could start with a relatively low amount of inoculant. Do the math, bacteria can double every ten minutes...With super high counts you basically overwhelm the competing bacteria.

specifically I was indicating substituting a sugar for a fat will help the beneficial bacteria in gut.  especially the types of sugars/carbs most eat.

the instructions to heat the whey was only to have a sterile culture medium to innoculate human strains of probiotics. Otherwise I would never suggest heating raw whey.  hope that helps.

as regards the walnut experiment showing favorable gut microbes,,  I don't necessarily doubt it, however,  give an average person something healthy to eat, and then ask what didn't they eat when they had walnuts instead?

the acidity is the taste of the excrement of the bacteria.   I found when I was heavily into kefir, I would mix 50 /50 kefir with milk.  the result was a very creamy delicious taste.  I think too much lactic acid is a burden on the body.

So here's where I don't know..   Your whey already has tons of bacteria,, which will compete with the prob. that you add.  I would suggest that you boil it to start with a sterile environment.    And I am assuming that your whey hasn't already gone acidic. If it has, most of the lactose will have turned into lactic acid and not feed your prob.
   The powdered whey I bought had not gone acidic before drying/pasturizing.    You can experiment.  Maybe with 500 mls. you could add ten capsules.  Being that you might place that much in your colon.   Get a thermometer and make sure it doesn't go over body temp.  And oven with a light in it or a small heating pad, with some practice you can adjust the temp. by slightly opening the door of the oven, or even use a box, or large cooler, or cupboard.  But you want to hover around body temp. because that is where the bacteria you want to grow in your color will multiply the fastest and outcompete others.
 Making yogurt out of raw milk is tricky due to the already present bacteria in milk.  I would probably suggest going the kefir route there, and making sure you have lots of K. grains to efficiently culture the milk before competing bacteria can also grow.  In both the colon solution and kefir stop the culturing process as it begins to go acidic by taste.  Waiting too long and the bacteria ( and yeasts in kefir ) will expire due to lack of food/available lactose and too high of acidity.

Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / Re: Sleepiness after eating
« on: November 14, 2018, 07:58:28 am »
one old time zero carber used to say unless you feel like eating an entire steak, you're not really hungry.  it is easy to convince yourself you're hungry  so you can enjoy the pleasure or the distraction of eating.    experiment, go a little longer than you think and see what happens. eating when hungry almost guarantees you'll feel good after eating unless you overeat.

just a reminder,  exercise before the first meal of the day, and wait till you are really hungry.  Stop eating while still hungry.  It's SO easy to overeat day in and day out. I'm assuming you're playing around with meat and fat ratio to what your body actually wants to eat.

beef suet is different from beef fat,, as It's lower in water content and higher in saturated fat, thus less prone to oxidation or going rancid.  But your taste should guide you.  I personally don't enjoy eating suet, so I don't have any guidance to offer other than to take notice.  I'm a little fanatic with not eating rancid fats.  I will often trim off the exposed outside to get to fresher fat inside.

as you said it in your other post today, some can tolerate milk, some can't.
    Also the nuts you eat should  be bought with shell on and then shelled by you and soaked.  that is if you eat more than a few a day.    you also maybe eating too much for your digestion to handle, especially when reading about your past diets.  Also please throw out all your Arnold E's books.   that is what ruined my health some 44 years ago.  So easy for our minds to believe what we read in a book.  Same goes for believing all that AV says.

not challenging you, but can you link those studies.  I"m curious.  thanks

yes, there's data on processed meats... but none on non processed meats.  but they have to conclude with 'non processed meats PROBABLY cause cancer too"   
   Gotto wonder who is behind this.

you can shred whole coconut and suck the juice out.  A fair bit of carbs though.  And by extracting the juice with your mouth it's interesting to see how quickly one's taste for it diminishes,,, as opposed to juicing it and throwing it down the hatch.

Been pretty close to Carnivore for some years.  but now, maybe nine months.  Too early to really tell.  Playing with ketone levels, amounts of food eaten, meal timing, meal frequency, organs, need for minerals if at all, types of water to drink..   One has to find their own way, it's so easy to hear of someone doing amazingly well and think, That's it!    Ask me a year or two.   

21
simply experimenting with pure carnivore. My desire taste wise stopped also. Yes, where the broken edges are, that's where the highest concentration of rancidity is.

Health / Re: Just one more thing to be completely healed

increasing fat digestion takes time, as to get the bile flowing again to handle the increased amounts of fats.  Chew better.  Shouldn't see the fat regardless of whether it digests or not.  Savor each bite and take your time eating.

23
I think the idea is that heating them, to what temp?, dries them out, so that they crack easier..   But the biggest problem is that once cracked, especially walnuts, they go rancid.    This is nut season, so one can go online and buy them in shell in bulk.   I did that when eating nuts..  Huge difference when soaking for two days, rinsing often. 

24
more like 24-48 hours, and rinsing often.  Small pieces are already rancid, where anyplace the skin of the nut is removed.  Nuts out of shell most likely have been heated to expedite shelling.

25
read about excess protein and it's effect.  Yes, pumping in lots of protein will help show gains in the gym.  I wouldn't let that guide my food choices,, unless that was the most important thing in my life.   I'm lucky, I get local fresh fat that is incredibly good tasting.  I experiment with eating more fat and less protein.  that ratio changes as I become more fat adapted which also means I digest fat pretty easy now. 
   The Bear and I had some email exchanges.  That guy was a hot-tempered nut in my opinion.    And yes, many think that Sean Baker eats too much protein.  Watch him eat a steak, and notice how little fat he's consuming,, and all cooked to death. 
   But I read fat is where animals/we store toxins.  So again, to be consuming grain-fed beef where that animal has stored all the glycosides and other Monsanto created toxins in its' fat, to me, that is asking for trouble.
