does freezing have any effect on enzymes?

Technically speaking, freezing doesn't kill of bacteria, it just inactivates them. Freezing does damage the structure of enzymes - I think some RPDers have stated that enzymes get completely destroyed if the food is left for as much as 10 weeks in a frozen state - no idea how to corroborate that. The main problem with freezing is that cell-walls get broken by the ice-particles so that nutrients leak out etc.

Is there anything wrong with leaving a sealed container outside of the fridge? I put some heart in a sealed jar to make high yesterday, but left it outside of the fridge.
And does anyone how approx. how long it will take unrefrigerated meats to become high, as opposed to refrigerated?

The problem is that you have to air the sealed container regularly(I find once a day airing to speed up the process). By airing, you dislodge some of the tiny eggs laid by flies around the lid, which then fall into the high-meat mess below, and you then get maggots crawling all over sooner or later. I've managed, by being ultra-careful, to avoid such a thing happening, over a 3-week period, but one always forgets sooner or later.

Window.  I love the view day or night.

Fruits or vegetables?

Fruits, I've always hated vegetables.

Newspapers/magazines for news updates  or TV/Internet for news-updates?

Some acquaintances of mine went to the Yemen and saw the men dancing around, without their women present, while shooting into the air with their rifles - now, I loathe dancing, but this sounds like more my kind of thing!

It usually takes c.8 to 12 months for people to get rid of their cravings for cooked-foods.

Part of the problem is that cooked-food contains opioid peptides which are highly addictive(such peptides are also present in dairy and wheat). That's partly why I went cold-turkey rather than mixing raw and cooked together, so as to wean myself off the addiction more easily.

However, in general, the main reason why SAD-eaters prefer cooked-food is primarily because of lifelong habits. Like a number RPDers, I remember stealing bits of raw meats from the kitchen when I was very young(in my case raw kidney), and rather liked it - but when I tried it again 25 years later, it took me some time to get to really enjoy it again. So, the main thing is to get into the habit. If you simply can't stomach certain foods, and can't handle partially-cooked, either, then I would suggest you do much the same as I did, which is to buy very small amounts of dozens of different foods from all over the place, until you find those which taste good, right from the start. As a result, I found that I took an instant liking to raw goatmeat, most raw shellfish, some types of raw fish and the like, and was able to depend on those for 90% of my diet, until I got used to and enjoyed the other 10% of my diet(consisting of those foods I didn't like, but persisted with).

But what's the reason, though?

Legumes contain antinutrients.

Legumes are forbidden on a paleo diet, whether cooked or raw, for a reason.

Just finished up some two-week old lamb liver.
I don't think it was quite "high" yet, but it was really stinky.
Didn't taste too bad though.
Could it be that only beef liver turns into soup as it gets older? Because the lamb liver was much more solid than it was originally.

Man... maybe it was old enough to have some "high" benefits.... I feel like there is energy surging through my body and my brain seems really focused. Could just be a mental thing though.

Judging from your description above, you've finally managed to experience the "crack cocaine" equivalent  of the raw-animal-foodist world. It took me 3 years to get up the courage to try the authentic "high-meat", so you've obviously got a lot of guts.

I wonder how people are classified as the "healthiest." I've heard also that Hunza Valley Pakistani's are healthiest, Okinawans are healthiest, Inuit are healthiest etc.

I agree, most of those claims are dubious, at best. Plus, modern medical intervention can keep people alive for far longer than they would have if they'd lived a 100 years ago. So, diet isn't the only factor.

A few people seem to be under the misconception that bolting food down means you're not interested in the food. On the contrary, I  am interested in and like the food I eat, I just don't see the need to obsess over it, re the issue of chewing.  I found, early on in my diet, that only minimal chewing was required, if at all, re my digestion, and that chewing each bite for ages did not improve things at all - so why bother. On those rare occasions when I eat cooked-food, I do make an effort to chew, for obvious reasons, though.

I failed at my last book "Ulysses" by James Joyce. I could read it but it didn't draw me in at all, I made it about 1/3 of the way through after a couple of months and decided to give it up and find a book that attracts me more. One day I will go back and finish it, the same thing happened in 8th grade when I took on "Crime and Punishment" and I recently went back and tore through that in a couple of weeks.

The last book that enthralled me was "The Secret History" which is about some college students studying Greek studies.

You are not alone. I, like many others, found the book "Ulysses" to be a dead-bore- James Joyce has a reputation of being a writers' writer rather than a readers' writer.
I've found a few other famous books to be similiarly unreadable such as Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice" which I had to do at school - I struggled
 to get past the first page, because it was so boring.

thanks to tylers link ive discovered a water called mountain valley spring water,it alkalitic tastes awesome and isnt carbonated...

Well, I did find it rather hard to believe that there was no non-carbonated mineral-water in the US.

I've yet to create high meat, but from what I've learned on here liver doesn't end up being so much high "meat" as it ends up being a high soup ... if you can picture a fermented soup of dissolved organ parts (and now picture the smell). It would be high in bacteria but I'm not sure even the inuit could stomach that. Someone should dare Aajonus to drink some of that on Ripley's Believe or Not lol.

The Inuit preferred to eat rotting fish rather than rotting liver. The rotting fish was one of their most favourite foods. 

Re liquid soup:- In that famous wifeswap tv series episode about an American family on a raw animal food diet, they were shown to eat high-meat in the form of a liquid soup(I think it had been aged for c.4 months).

I think so. People from the States enthuse about yellow  hide-fat all the time, but I don't seem to get hold of it, over here.

I am looking for videos and audio of Aajonus.
Can you point to URLs where we can find them? has CDs and audio-cassette tapes with Aajonus' voice on them - contact Jon C Fox at re this. However, apart from the consultations, he simply states on the tapes exactly what he writes about in his 2 books.

could anyone give me any brand-names of alkalinic mineral waters?

Go to this website:-

and click upper left area on waters, list by country, check under "USA", and you'll find 183 brands listed. Only go for those mineral-waters from natural springs. Avoid the sparkling mineral-waters as well, as they cause digestive upset.

Can i trouble some of the veteran RPD'ers here to post a ranking of which fats they consider the best? Something like:

1. Brains
2. Hide fat
3. Suet
4. etc.

I'm really just looking for opinions and not necessarily hard science.

This assumes that the organs all come from 100% grassfed sources - for example, I used to get a source of grainfed brains from pigs(cattle brains are forbidden in the UK for sale). The following fats are listed in descending order from greatest to least, and I;m measuring them in terms of what other trace micronutrients they have, other than just fats:-

Muscle-Meat Fat

You know you're an RPDer when non-rawist acquaintances, such as doctors etc., unsubtly and constantly  go out of their way to tempt you with foods banned on your diet, such as alcohol, coffee, pasteurised dairy etc..

While it's true that being sick on an RPD diet is pretty rare unless you're doing something dodgy such as eating cooked-foods, there are occasional mild detox-episodes  and a very few people do experience worse detoxes. In my own case, I'd thought I was 100% immune to all colds and flus, yet after 4 years on the RPD diet, I got the flu, in full, for 2 days - my brother mentioned he'd just recovered from a flu-outbreak so I knew I'd caught it from him. OK, so I've never had the flu (or a cold) other than that time during my RPD phase, but I thought it should be mentioned.

Just list 25 things about yourself. Forget about the format.

I don't mean you; what about all the others. I know that all works for you - my parents and many other "normal" people say "every thing is o.k." but then I notice that they have problems, but they are "normal" problems.

I do try, but I would like the whole story to work from top to bottom, doing sport and resting - not just "wayting" for the next meal; I don't just oder or jump into a car for food...I go for it under my own steam!

What about eating raw in a restaurant (social)? Bolt vs. chew...
I still bolt my raw fish down in sashimi restaurants.

When I mentioned this bolting then nobody will answer to wether they do bolt...It is hard to "believe" what people do and if it really works; that digestion is better one way or the other and I mean metabolisem from the start till the end (stool)!!!


Look, sometimes I do just bolt it down without any chewing whatsoever - other times I chew once or twice. Big deal.
