Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / Thin, medium, long marrow bones
« on: April 23, 2018, 12:37:28 am »

Recently, I have learned about three different types of marrow: thin beef marrow bones, medium beef marrow bones and long beef marrow bones. The price per poundage, where I am shopping, is about the same. I wonder: does there exist a good reason to prefer one over the others? Does there exist, a noteworthy nutritional distinction, between the three types of marrow?

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Dealing with odors
« on: March 02, 2018, 09:42:49 am »
Hey folks,

I find that cooked-eating folks are reacting adversely to smelling my animal foods (defrosting seafood, high meat, etc.). I personally don't smell anything. Has anyone else been facing such issues? If so, how do you deal with it?

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Sun expoure and RPD
« on: February 12, 2018, 03:18:53 am »
Hi all,

I am wondering
- what do folks think about sun exposure? Healthy or unhealthy, and in what amounts?
- do you find that you react to the sun differently depending on your nutrition? E.g., cooked vs. RPD?


Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Typical Daily Dietary Intake of Members?
« on: January 23, 2018, 12:18:39 am »
Hi all,

I'd be curious to hear what the forum members consume on a daily basis (type of food and amount). This may inspire readers in making improvements to their diets.

I'll start since I'm posting:
- 1/2 lb swordfish steak
- 1 tomato
- 1/2 cucumber
- 1 bell pepper
- 3/4 lb lamb riblets
- 3 sea scallops
- 1 cup of raw milk
- 1/10 lb raw cheddar
- 2 tbsp raw butter
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 2 raw eggs

I evidently need more organs.

General Discussion / Contraceptives
« on: January 14, 2018, 10:08:10 am »
Hey folks, I'm wondering what is a natural and practical form of contraceptive (besides abstinence or pulling-out). I know people used to use lamb intestine, but that's practical for very few of us. Any other alternatives that are close to being Paleo/natural?

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Raw chocolate - thoughts?
« on: January 07, 2018, 03:56:16 am »
Q: What is ‘raw chocolate’?
A: The fundamental difference between commercial chocolate and raw chocolate is that the cocoa beans that make the chocolate are never heated above 42°C. We make sure that during the whole process from harvest to bar that the temperature never exceeds this key temperature. In commercial chocolate bars the cocoa beans are usually roasted at 130-400°C and chemically treated, meaning that many of the enzymes, anti-oxidants and nutrients are usually destroyed. What’s more, raw chocolate usually contains just 3-4 ingredients (cocoa powder, cocoa butter, coconut blossom sugar and raw fruits or seeds) whereas commercial chocolate can contain, milk, soya, non-cocoa fats, sugars and other sweeteners and often artificial flavourings and preservatives.

Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / Nose to tail and paelo
« on: January 02, 2018, 10:41:33 am »
I was wondering what would "nose-to-tail" eating be like under raw paleo. Say you captured a rabbit and you are prepared to eat it. What would you be doing, assuming a Paleo outlook? Would you go through the process of butchering by skinning the rabbit and chopping up its meat and collecting the organs, or something else?

I'm wondering because obviously other animals don't bother with skinning and butchering - they simply stuff it down their throat in chunks. But we humans cannot (?) do this. So are we fundamentally dependent on having sharp cutting tools and processing the food by butchering?

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Cooked tubers - healthy or unhealthy?
« on: December 25, 2017, 01:03:29 am »
It looks like the consensus on the forum regarding cooked meats is that they are cancerous and toxic.

How about tubers, or more specifically, potatoes? Are there any scientific studies concerning the effects cooked tubers on health? I am having cravings for mashed or steamed potatoes and I'm wondering if there is something to these cravings. Since I've been raw for about 6 months, I suspect that I am missing something in my diet.

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Fermenting foods
« on: November 28, 2017, 06:14:42 am »
I've recently been looking into fermentation. It looks really promising, since the health benefits have been documented and it often does not call for cooking.

I had a bunch of questions, for which I'm hoping someone can suggest answers:

1. Is fermentation of food "Paleo"? (Besides High meat)
2. Is fermentation using salt "Paleo"?
3. Is there such a thing as High vegetables/fruit/tubers/etc.? If not, what is it that makes High meat special?
4. Has anyone seen any negative health aspects to fermentation or is it always a healthful choice?

Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / Ichthyophagi (Fish eaters)
« on: November 18, 2017, 05:26:13 am »
Ichthyophagi (meaning "Fish-Eaters"), the name given by ancient geographers to several coast-dwelling peoples in different parts of the world and ethnically unrelated. Herodotus (book i. c. 200) mentions three tribes of the Babylonians who were solely fish-eaters, and in book iii. c. 19 refers to Ichthyophagi in Aethiopia.

Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / High liver is spicy
« on: November 02, 2017, 07:07:17 am »
Does anyone understand the science or have some conjectures as to why high liver becomes spicy?

Also, I noticed that there aren't that many naturally occurring spicy foods. This strongly suggests that we are meant to eat high meat, since we love spicy food so much  -d

Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / Different ways to make high meat
« on: October 12, 2017, 05:46:14 am »

I'm contemplating different methods to make high meat. The one I learned from AV is to put meat in a jar, refrigerate, and then air every 3-4 days. I'm wondering if that yields a different result from, say, leaving it outside of the refrigerator or even leaving the meat in open air? Any experience/theory on this?

It seems that some features that will be affected by the choice of process are:
- speed of the fermentation
- amount of insects in one's food
- flavor(?)
- molecular/chemical composition of final product(?)
- smell

Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / Fish organs (offal)
« on: October 01, 2017, 11:08:12 pm »
Over the duration of the last few weeks, I have been eating fish organs.  I've had good experience eating Bass and Pompano liver and heart. The liver for both fish is big pink and sweet and the heart is red and bloody. However, I've had some bad experiences with other fish that I am trying to understand.

Bad experiences:
- milkfish organs: extremely bitter. So bitter that the bitter taste clings to the back of the throat from a mere taste.
- rock cod liver: bland taste and white in color, which I found odd. I ate a bit then stopped. A few hours later I vomitted, and I'm pretty sure it was the liver specifically that I vomitted. First time I've vomitted on RPD.

Any similar experiences? Thoughts on what went wrong during the bad times?

Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / High egg recipe?
« on: September 24, 2017, 04:01:35 am »

Does know how to make high eggs?

The impression I get is that you want to puncture a hole in the egg. The rest is the same as with other high meats, in terms of airing every few days. Can anyone confirm?

Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / Bitter liver
« on: September 19, 2017, 12:29:02 am »
I bought some pork liver. Unfortunately, it tastes very bitter. My experience gutting fish suggests that it's due to bile. Is there anything I can do with the liver still or should I throw it away?

Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / Different proteins, different results
« on: September 18, 2017, 12:02:23 pm »
I read somewhere that a few centuries ago japanese obtained their protein from mostly fish. Upon the introduction of beef, they became a foot or so taller on average. Does anyone have an explanation as to why beef should cause a height increase over fish? More generally, besides in flavor, do different meats have significantly different health/growth properties?

Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / Animal brains
« on: September 03, 2017, 11:42:00 pm »
Does anyone have a clever stratrgy for getting past the skull of the animal to its brain? What tools do you use?

I am right now looking at fish but in the future perhaps larger game

Health / Soladey
« on: August 29, 2017, 04:51:07 am »
Does anyone have any experience with the Soladey toothbrush? Is it bullshit?
It's certainly not paleo technology, but I don't see how one can get by without some form of brushing if one wants to have white teeth.

Are melon/watermelon seeds safe to consume? Is there any benefit to doing so?

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Insects - what to look for when buying
« on: August 23, 2017, 02:56:42 am »

I'm looking to order some crickets or mealworms. I am wondering what to look for when buying. What I mean is that when buying meat, for instance, I look for it to be pastured, grassfed and organic. What is the equivalent for insects? I know that they can be fed organic foods. Is there anything else I should look for to get the (probably) healthiest insects?

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Juicing - maybe paleo
« on: August 09, 2017, 07:54:27 am »
Good evening ladies and gents,

I've been thinking about modes of hydration. Right now I'm on RPD month 2 1/2. Thus far I have been drinking nothing but raw milk. However, I am a little suspicious of milk, despite the fact that I love it so much and have had no problems with it. So I've decided to cut down on milk and find some other source to hydrate me. I've gone through most of the day without milk and have gotten thirsty. I've tried to satisfy my thirst with raw eggs, carrots, celery and meat, but to no avail. Then I instinctively chewed up a carrot piece in my mouth, sucked out its juice, and then spat out the chewed up solid pieces. As a result, I felt much more hydrated. This suggests to me that juicing would be available to a paleo human, in the sense that all this human has to do is chew up a fruit or vegetable and then spit out the solid remains... So I think I'll be buying a juicer, and now the question is which one, because sucking vegetables/fruit is a mess.

Health / Science of Tooth Yellowing and Decay
« on: August 04, 2017, 05:11:05 am »
Does anyone know the science behind tooth decay and tooth yellowing? I'm curious to know:

1. What is the chemical/mechanical process that causes teeth to develop cavities? Is it something that bacteria are releasing when digesting certain foods which erodes the tooth? If so, which foods? Or is it something else?

2. same question concerning yellowing of teeth, which seems to be an independent process.

3. how to battle tooth decay and tooth yellowing the paleo way? Avoid certain foods, eat more of others, brush with some specific substance, don't brush with other specific substances...?
