Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / Bitter Meat?
« on: May 19, 2018, 11:18:00 am »
I've just tasted some very bitter fermented (high meat). No meat has ever taste like this before. I think I screwed up this time by letting sit in the original package for too long and only then letting it air. I don't think this is something I'm going to eat, since I trust my instinct more than I'm willing to experiment with bitter meat.

Any thoughts? Do you think a bitter flavor is a sign to be alarmed at?

Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / Frozen versus Fresh Meat
« on: May 16, 2018, 05:30:50 am »
Just wondering what everyone thinks about frozen meat versus fresh meat? I've seen people claiming it's worse, but have not been able to find any evidence for it. For reference, I eat mostly fresh, I've also eaten both dry aged and high (fermented) meat. I eat mostly my liver frozen (I buy in bulk so it's better because I can have more space in my refrigerator, I also prefer the texture, taste is about the same) and I sometimes freeze excess meat if it can't all fit into the fridge. I've no problem with putting the meat outside the fridge either (room temperature).

Without getting off topic, again I'd like to know what your opinion is and if there's any evidence to back it up. I haven't personally experienced a difference other than texture and what temperature the meat is at (I eat the meat semi-frozen to avoid thawing completely).

And to avoid confusion, by meat I mean the entire animal. All the organs, muscle and even blood.
Any difference to freezing fat compared to freezing lean meat compared to freezing blood, for example?

So, I've just gotten my blood tested and the results are here (NOTE: I will not post everything right now, not really sure 100% what everything means, I got a lot tested. Unfortunately not as many vitamins/minerals as I would want.):

Cholesterol, Total: 6.4 mmol/L
Triglycerides: 0.77 mmol/L
HDL Cholesterol: 1.93 mmol/L
LDL Cholesterol: 4.12 mmol/L

Alkaline Phosphatase: 1.44 µkat/L
Protein, Total: 76 g/L
Potassium: 4.2 mmol/L

Sodium: 141 mmol/L
Iron: 24.6 µmol/L

MCV: 85 fl
MCH: 28.7 pg

Monocytes: 5.9 %
Eosinophils: 3.0 %
Basophils: 0.3 %
ESR: 1 mm/h.

While I do have my own opinion about this, I am interested in what everybody else thinks. I will also get more results soon, but any opinion on what else I should test? I was interested in testing for more vitamins/minerals particularly, but wasn't able to this time.

For reference, I eat only raw meat. Raw beef and lamb organs, raw muscle, raw organ and muscle fat, raw bone marrow, raw egg yolks. That is all, nothing more. It should be noted that I've never eaten anything else since I started this diet other than trying out a few fish and eating raw butter, maybe 3-4 times in total when I ran out of fat. I do not supplement any vitamin/mineral. I do not use herbs or salt. Just raw meat straight from the animal. Only grass-fed organic or wild game.

Everyone else is also welcome to post their results, I would be most interested.

EDIT: Converted some of the values for people to understand:

Total Cholesterol: 6.4 mmol/l = 247.48647 mg/dl
HDL: 1.93 mmol/l = 74.63264 mg/dl
LDL: 4.12 mmol/l = 159.31941 mg/dl
Triglycerides: 0.77 mmol/l = 68.20195 mg/dl
Glucose: 4.7 mmol/l = 84.6 mg/dl
Bilirubin, Total: 10.5 µmol/L = 0.6140350877192982 mg/dl
Bilirubin, Direct: 3.5 µmol/L = 0.2046783625730994 mg/dl

General Discussion / Alternative Uses for Animals
« on: November 17, 2017, 03:50:06 am »
I am interested if anyone has any ideas on how I could certain parts of the animals which I don't eat such as (fur, skin, bones etc...). Currently most of what I'm left with are bones and gristle, as I haven't been able to get skin or fur. But does anyone have any good ideas on what to do with different parts of the animals you don't eat? I get a lot of bones which I eat the marrow out of, but it would be good to find an actual use for the bones.

I've been wanting to eat raw wild game for some time now. For those of you who eat it, how would you compare versus grass-fed and then grain-fed? I already know grain-fed organs and bone marrow usually taste horrible to me, and grain-fed marrow was the only time I got diarrhea on this diet. Grass-fed is good, but I'd like to know what you think about wild game? The last time I ate wild game was back on cooked Zero Carb, although I do remember it having a strong taste.

Not really my first post because I posted earlier about some issue I was having (been dealing with it from another angle now), but I thought I should introduce myself since I'm technically new to the forum. I have been around the forum since December 2016, but I never made an account.

To cut a long story short, I started a cooked ketogenic diet about two years ago. Unlike all previous diets, which changed nothing, this one managed to heal many of my illnesses. Over time I noticed I did better on animal products only (no more bloating, completely eliminated acne etc...), so I went cooked zerocarb a year ago. Did that for 6 months, eventually tried raw meat as was my intention when initially starting zero carb. It was honestly too good, and I just couldn't go back to cooked meat without getting nauseous and bloated. And I've noticed other things as well. On cooked keto I could eat eggs, but on cooked zero carb I would get diarrhea from them. Not the case with raw eggs, however, as I've since tried them again, but this time raw. No problems with those. Same goes for dairy, I can tolerate even milk as long as it's raw. I do not eat eggs or dairy, however, as this was merely a short experiment to see how I would react. While I didn't react negatively, I feel best on just raw meat.

So, as for my diet, it's 100% raw, no supplements but one which I am using for another problem right now, I eat lamb (muscle and organ fat, bone marrow, muscle, organs) and beef bone marrow exclusively. I've been thinking about trying some fish as well.

Everything I eat is grass-fed, haven't tried wild game yet because of outrageous prices. Wild caught fish, however, seem to be very cheap in comparison.

I've cured many illnesses/diseases by eating this way, many of which I thought were normal. Just to list some of the major ones: severe acne, caries and tooth decay, I never get sick on zero carb (used to get colds/allergies 2-3 days a week, got badly sick maybe 1-2 a year (strep throat etc..)), nail fungus gone, better hair, almost perfect digestion...

I could go on, but I think that's enough. Hope you enjoyed reading that wall of text.

Health / Disturbing Urine
« on: October 28, 2017, 03:49:43 am »
Well, I didn't really want this to be my first post here, but oh well...

Let me explain my problem. I have, since about six months ago, been getting very 'interesting' urine whenever I eat a very high fat meal. I can eat as much protein as I want with no problems, but as soon as I more than 100-150 grams of fat a day, eventually I get this. My urine starts out normal, then at the very end it starts getting darker and cloudier, until it's very dark orange and not clear at all. If I eat high fat for a few days it's almost red (or maybe it is red). It's just a small amount at the very end. It seems to contain tiny sand like particles. Sometimes it causes a burning sensation when it contains some bigger particles. The particles, no matter how dark the urine, are always the same color. Just a plain orange one. I am confused as to why I only get this when I eat very high fat, and not protein.

For context, I was eating a cooked ketogenic diet for a year first, then a cooked zero carb for 6 months and now raw zero carb for another 4 months. I got this problem two-three months into cooked zero carb.

I have kind of gotten used to this by now, and it's only happened when I eat super high fat (more than 200 grams, and I've only recently been eating higher amounts of fat again), but I am still concerned. It should be noted that I used to eat 500 grams of fat or more on keto and on cooked zero carb in the beginning, so I didn't have this problem back when I began. Obviously I eat 100% raw now, but the problem is still there.

I've tried searching for these symptoms only when eating high fat, but haven't found anything. Any advice would be very helpful.
