"Semi-frozen"? What does that mean?

What he probably means is it is soft enough to cut it but still hard enough so it does not leak much juice.

enzymes in frozen meats

I don't think there is such thing as enzymes in meat.  I could not find any.  For example our saliva has amylase to break down carbs.  It appears there are no such enzymes in muscle meat.  All enzymes come from outside.  If there is one that's found inside meat I would be very interested to read about it.

I searched all over and found no evidence that freezing impacts nutrients in any negative way.  When thawing in room temperature some juices may leak and that's about it.

Some people swear they can taste and feel the difference but to me fresh or frozen tastes the same.

I'm now full week without shower.  The wife and the office don't appear to suspect anything.  I usually do not go that far but recently I noticed I do not get smelly that much.  One possible explanation is I recently donated blood and suspect there is much less iron in my sweat as before.

If you ever get around Chicago area you are welcome to taste my stash.  I'm curious to see how you will rate it as I don't get much variety.

Is it possible that in your quest for perfection you are chasing ghosts?  Every year I get Amish beef from the same area and every year it tastes different.  Some are better than the other but it does vary.  I went there to look for myself and all I saw cows grazing 24/7.  Is it possible that every animal has a unique taste?  Dogs did not seem to care about taste difference. They ate all the scraps the same way.

What about that guy in Texas?  I remember you liked his meat a lot.

What about Amish?  Are there any in your area?

Have you considered raising sheep yourself?

Antibiotics is a sure and quickest way.  I would use them in a heartbeat if I was in this situation. Bacterial infections can take a very long time for body to fight.  The benefit of quickly getting rid of infection outweighs all the negatives of antibiotics.

You will not flush anything out of your liver. What you will 'flush' is undigested flush ingredients.

I have not and I will not.  There is no evidence these are stones or anything remotely looks like stones.

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Re: How to Fatten on RPD?

You can safely ignore all advices that tell you eat this and eat that especially coming from people who don't a problem putting on weight.

There are many many factors in play and you have to address them as a whole not just eat this and eat that.
Factors like quality of stomach acid, gut flora, hormone imbalances, liver functions, quality of enzymes, stress levels, both physical and emotional, genetics, heavy metal overload, etc.

I did manage to get some fat levels under my skin but it took very long time.  The best thing that works for me is 60/40 meat/fat by volume.  The amount of serving does not appear to matter.  Also, I quickly lose weight under stress.

So everyone is different and you have to figure it out what works for you on your own.

These 'liver flushes' appear to be fakes.

You don't need bacteria to digest meat.  Meat digestion starts with stomach and then it should quickly get absorbed in the small intestine.  Small amount of undigested leftovers will be left for bacteria.  I would start with checking your stomach acid.  If your stomach acid is weak no amount of bacteria will help.  Salt has ingredients to build stomach acid.  I would also consider supplements such as HCL with pepsin.

I used to eat liver almost daily for the first 5-6 years.  And then I started to notice small black stains on in the inside of my teeth.  And over time it got more and more visible.  I scrape it and it comes back few days later. Google suggested it might be due to too much iron so  I did a blood test and there it was over 600.  And I had 150 before doing raw meat.  After donating a pint of blood ferritin dropped to 320 but still too much as I continue getting stains.  I will do another blood donation soon.

17
I'm curious what's your ferritin level is.  I had to stop eating liver regularly as I am overloaded with iron.

Elevated ferritin indicates iron overload.  While iron levels in blood plasma does not say if there is iron overload.

There is no such thing as sushi-grade salmon.  All salmon in a typical sushi restaurant is farmed.

Maybe you see it in Europe.  In the US there is not a hint of any communistic ideas.  There are some socialist ideas floating around like free healthcare and education.  But nothing more.

Communism was alive and well

I'm not sure what you are referring to.  Communism is an utopia developed by Marx and refined by Lenin.  It was never implemented anywhere in the world.

You think a show with a "No Ma'am" club would air today

I do think so.  Sexism is as popular subject these days.  Any satire about it would do just fine today.

It was an awesome show.  I do not find anything political in it.  It was a pure satire of every stereotype. Husbands want beer, sports, and hot young women.  Wives want to control husbands.  Young Bud is desperate to score with babes.  And Kelly wants to party all the time and milk men for money.

You can still watch it on some secondary channels.

I find it very hard to believe it is not frozen.  It takes 2.5 -3 weeks to transport it. In my experience 3 week old carcass dries up considerably even when chilled.  Or if you cover it in plastic it will start getting moldy pretty quickly. In Costco NZ lamb carcasses are sold  frozen.  I don't think it arrives chilled then Costco freezes them.  I think it arrives already frozen.

The results just came in.  My ferritin level dropped to 321 from 664 after donating one pint of blood.  320 is the upper limit so I probably will donate again in 6 months.  Stains on my teeth will let me know if iron levels are going back up.

People have no issues at all with raw-meat-dishes which are acceptable to eat raw in local areas, especially if it's in a restaurant.

That's not what I see.  I know many people who regularly eat sushi but they will never touch raw meat even in the restaurants.  In fact, I do not know a single person who is even remotely interested ordering steak tar-tar.  But they will eat sushi any day.

25
Sushi is not a good example.  As sushi is very popular and lots and lots of people eat them they clearly differentiate sushi from other meats.  When I tell them fish meat is the really the same as raw beef or lamb they do not buy the idea at all.  In their mind sushi and raw beef are very different things and there is nothing I say can change their mind.
