General Discussion / Re: Mucus - beneficial or harmful?
« Last post by thehadezb on Yesterday at 02:19:57 am »
I have your same stool symptoms since I started cooked zero carb. Pale stools, hard initially, mucus, some blood and remaining liquid in my bowels. I've transition to a raw primal diet and this phenomenon is no longer happening. I don't remember what I was mainly eating on my cooked zero carb but since I started raw primal I haven't added cheese. Now my stools are extremely soft and with pieces of undigested raw fats.
I really regret not having a good diary of my days of cooked zero carb to realize what has changed now. Probably this problem is going to come back because of my irregularities dieting so I'll start a food diary now and see what is happening so this phenomenon could be explained better.

Ok. I get your point now. I wouldn't want to chew more than a mouth full or perhaps a sprig like you see so many people doing in the movies. Dried wheatgrass has a mineral smell and taste that I am attracted to. Unlike most of the people on this forum I am not married to the idea that the diet our ancestors ate was perfect or that it couldn't be improved upon. I suspect the truth is somewhere in the middle.

I never got the cold I suspected I was coming down with so I must be on the right track. I also keep going to the gym, planning to work out lightly but work out like an animal when I get there. Anyone that claims it is impossible to get the same benefits from organ meats as steroids hasn't eaten pounds and pounds of them every day. They say you absorb less than one or two percent of the testosterone from meat when you take it orally. My answer to that is to just take 50 or 100 times the dose. A few pills aren't going to cut it...

Only thing that concerns me is I wake up in the mornings with a mild back ache that goes away soon after I pee, leading me to suspect kidneys.

I am actually considering trying Jordan's diet of beef salt and water, except raw with at least 50% organ meat.

I am cheating with coffee. A few months ago I was doing 3 or 4 cups a day. It was bad. I forced myself to only a cup a day and last week I cut down to half a cup and am hoping to go back to none fairly soon. I'm pretty sure I wasn't drinking any at all in April when I was at my peak.

I'm not craving any wheatgrass at all this morning (or any food at all yet) so I think I'll skip or delay it till I get an urge to take some.  I ate over 6 pounds of meat yesterday. I was ravenous. All but a few bites were beef, mostly organ meat smoothies. I had some salmon and some shrimp, pickled in lemon juice and only ate a few bites of each of them. I was craving beef!

My weight is definitely going up and I have gained between 1.5 and 4.5 pounds in just a few days. Will know more when I can determine if the 4.5 pounds is water weight or not. It's definitely not fat. I'm going to continue to play it by ear and do whatever my body tells me while hoping my natural instincts haven't been corrupted too bad.

I am hoping the morning back aches will go away as soon as my body has gotten rid of all the toxins stored in the fat I am loosing. Though no doubt I will be also be disposing of the toxins in the factory farmed meat I am eating, so it will be an on going thing. To the best of my memory I didn't have those morning back aches when I was at my peak in April.

I too was eating grass fed but only for a month as an experiment but like you, was only able to find muscle meats. When I went back to eating organ meats I felt much better and now that I am back to virtually full carnivore I am eating 5 pounds of meat a day and there's no way I can afford grass fed so I'm not worrying about it and am doing just fine so maybe being unable to find grass fed organ meat is not all that bad...

I would strongly say that it's more important to eat organ meats than to forgo them and only eat grass fed muscle meats.

I still have some grass fed meat and I do like the taste better after becoming accustomed to it but when I first tried it it seemed kind of tasteless.

Wild caught sea food it a bargain if you buy it frozen. It's actually cheaper to buy salmon that way than to buy it farmed fresh.

can't imagine being fulfilled by eating grocery store food.   Can't you seek out farmers/ranchers in your area?    Fresh dark raw beef liver is anything but boring. Soft raw creamy yellow/orange bone marrow would compare to Any fat. Deep dark grass fed sirloin or rib eye accompanied by buttery yellow thinly sliced back fat is one of the most delectable flavors, would appease anyone blindfolded at any cocktail party...  Obviously, I'm suggesting you're not eating the best tasting animal foods...

@Mr_Sirloin I completely agree with this comment. It's impossible to get boring of eating meat if you are doing it right. I had a dry-aged purple piece of grass-fed and fatty beef picanha today, I enjoyed every single bite. You don't event want to swallow it, just keep it in your mouth because of that undescribable flavor.
Tender and lean cuts of meat are boring, for me they are baby food. I think raw paleo babies should have started eating meat from this cuts. Avoid all that boring stuff, grab a piece of brisket, chuck, butt or plate and you'll see how your meals are going to be fun very single day.

What guy was your sister talking about? was it Sv3rige?


Funnily enough it was Derek Nance (Sabertooth) who my sister was referring to as she saw his story on vice. The irony is that my sister now thinks I a crazy for eating raw meat and that I should be more balanced, even though I have seen so many health benefits already.

I have been trying to source some good organic grass-fed organs but the problem is that sweetbreads/thymus and brain are not at all popular so they don't stock them. Also I have contacted farms and they say that they cant supply some organs because of the health and safety regulations. I will keep looking though, also I plan on trying to find some local game meats as the beef can get a little expensive.

On the subject of dairy, I stopped all milk and butter and just went meat and water for a month, i then reintroduced eggs and butter and didn't seem to notice any differences apart from benefiting from the much larger amount of fat that I was ingesting (still had some digestive issues but felt better). Once I have used up the raw butter I have and found a reliable source of raw animal fat I will spend another month without eggs and butter, and maybe add in some wild herbs.

Near-infrared light therapy:- I've been doing very well with this. I have noted that, if my body needs to detox, all I have to do is expose my naked body to the near-infrared lamps for a few minutes and , while I feel tired from the redlight-detox, I also feel amazing after waking up later on.The  https://redlightman.com (UK_based) website has some cheap and expensive products available, just look only for the combo devices.


I had been looking at the near-infrared light therapy for a while but I didn't want to commit to something without testing it first, but I can give a smaller unit a try.

Digestive issues and depression could be sorted out by trying "high-meat":-
https://www.rawpaleodietforum.com/index.php?topic=316.0


Thankfully the depression pretty much vanished once i started eating allot of raw fat and cutting out all carbs. Technically I also have been eating dry aged beef which way have provided some bacterial benefit. However I have been fermenting some beef liver in the fridge, however I went away on holiday and had to leave it for 10 days at 1 Celsius. It still smells cheesy, but I am not sure as I have no experience with high meat. I will be making some high beef heart this week though.

IF(Intermittent Fasting) is also an idea. Bear in mind that constant digestion of food, no matter how healthy it is, is draining on the body, and diverts resources away from healing.


That has always been my mentality towards eating, I always felt best doing OMAD even though I still had IBS. I have even done some juice, water and dry fasting in the past as well, but I was never able to rebuild after them. At the moment I generally finish my food in a 1-2 hour window at lunch time to minimise the digestive stress in the evening.

I do plan on trying a cascade dry fast at some point to see how far I can go. If I can't manage it I want to try alternate day fasting with a 40 hour dry fast. May do a few egg yolk liver flushes before I attempt the cascade fast though, just to see if i do have a congested liver.

Well, I experienced a similiar set of health-setbacks, albeit at a much more painful, deadly level. Pre-RPD diet, I had chronic fatigue and chronic insomnia of a crippling nature. I would sleep for 8-10 hours a night, and wake up and feel as though I had only slept for half an hour. The only thing that got me fully asleep were melatonin pills(2 at a time). Trouble is that one's body adapts, and eventually one gets no benefit therefrom. I would strongly advise you to cut out ALL raw dairy products from your diet. When people claim they find 1 type of dairy fine, and another dairy-type to be harmful, I am very sceptical. The way I see it, if 1 type of raw dairy is harmful to you in the immediate present, then the other forms of raw dairy will be harmful in the long-term.

When I first tried RPD, I was unaware, that like many people with allergies, I had vast cravings for the very food I was allergic to.  It took months of experimentation with raw goats' milk, raw sheeps' milk, A1 type raw milk, until I finally grasped that all of them were harmful to me.

Other possibilities:- there is brainwave entrainment which I have found to help a lot re getting quickly to sleep. It's mostly very cheap(ie  do not buy any holosync product) and easy to use if you have a smartphone or computer. Brain.fm has  3 options:- focus, relax and sleep.They offer some free initial samples at first.

Primal Diet / Re: A1 versus A2 dairy, any difference?
« Last post by van on October 17, 2018, 01:40:22 pm »
sure.  You want to make sure the probiotics you buy are human strains,, those that naturally attach and reproduce within the human colon.   Then yes, dried whey, not whey powder, for that is lactose removed,  with added water and probiotic kept at 100 f will double the count of bacteria every 10 to 20 minutes once they start reproducing.  In a capsule they are dormant, but when exposed to the correct lactose medium and warmth they will begin to multiply.  You can do the math, doubling every 20 minutes for a day of culturing ( you to use/stop culturing before it turns very acidic)  and the numbers are HUGE, and they're living, and they don't have to pass through the acid stomach and alkaline small intestine.    The trick is also to feed them from the top, meaning orally either with whey powder or milk or whey from making cheese.  If kefir whey is used make sure it hasn't cultured too long for the lactose then would have been converted to lactic acid and thus not be a sugar form the bacteria need.  An enema bag can be used.

I only mention fresh and taste as a guide.  Dry or powder any food, and the taste will change to the point where your senses can be misled.    Next spring, see if you can find a field of wheat growing when it's in the grass stage.  See how much you can chew on before you want to spit it out. Might inform you as to what i'm saying.

Maybe trying to import food from just one hemisphere. I mean, if you live near the poles eat just food from that hemisphere and do not eat tropical fruits or something like that.

@van

This is very interesting. Can you please briefly explain how you can culture human strains of probiotics?  Also, what whey do you use? Should it be live whey from lets say kefir or would store bought powdered whey work as well? And to implant the solution of a pint, you use an enema, or how do you insert it? Suppositories would be too small unless you use many?
