  • yes.. its a serious question

    This may have been asked before.. but I was thinking about this and I'm kind of curious.

    If i only ate grass fed meats and only wild caught seafoods (with the exception of shell fish as i understand farmed shelfish is still "wild") would i really be missing THAT many nutrients? Wouldn't the vitamins/minerals that the animal consumed be passed down to me?

    The LSD guy who died in a car wreck earlier this year apparently had a meat only diet... I was just kind of wondering if anyone else had tried this or any information on it?

    If you eat organ meats, you should be ok, in theory.

      Yep, eat the offals and you should be covered. It's really hard to cover all the bases, but it is a lot better than the SAD anyway.

        Yes, but you need to eat EVERYTHING. Marrow, heart, liver, kidneys, brain, thymus, stomach contents...everything. I'd rather eat the veggies.

          native American Indians munched on the intestines of the buffalo that they caught with some of the partially digested grasses still inside. Even if you eat the whole animal, you'll still get your veggies in there somewhere.

            I've been looking for grass fed beef heart for like two months. The guys at the central market AND whole foods meat counters looked at me like I was crazy told me no and to go to the mexican grocers. I went to the mexican grocers, they said they will order it but its not grass fed and I have to get 60 lbs of it.

            I said no.

            I haven't given up hope yet!

              This thread reminds me of times on my uncle's farm. When they killed a chicken and ate it, my uncle loved the brain and eyes. He considered them a delicacy...I was grossed out. lol. wish I could try them now. I mean, how primal can you get???
              Live your life and love your life. It's the only one you get.

                Have you Binged or Googled it yet? That's where I've found all my resources for eating primally.

                    only concern is the constant state of low, or rather zero carb that such a diet would entail. Sure there are no essential carbs (meaning you can live without them) but the adjustment period might take forever and how realistic of a life is that too? Unless you were still open to the idea of eating vegs when out with others or what have you, but never again?

                    Also, "that LSD guy" is The Bear, and yeah, he used to make LSD. An account by a friend of his said that sometimes just being around the stuff when you made it would get you high for days, so all due respect to the memory of The Bear, I can't look at him as a legitimate source of information given that he was probably pretty strung out. I've read his site, and the fact that he says all vegetation is "non-food" and "poisonous" makes it pretty tough to believe him or want to emulate his diet. On the flip side though, supposedly his health was pretty good.

                    You might also want to read "Adventures in Diet" by Vilhjalmur Steffansson (I killed both the first and last name) it's a very short read, just a few pages, but if you're considering a meat-only diet, or a stint in it, it's worth it. I also have a PDF of "Fat of the Land" which is the book he wrote. I haven't gotten around to read it yet. I was very interested in LC but have actually turned around to fully embrace primal carbs and finding that I feel much better than when I was constantly LC. I can send you a copy of that through e-mail if you like.

                      Why would you want to have a meat only diet? A properly prepared salad is delicious.

                        I actually considered it because I'm lazy and cooking meat is really fast and simple. Then I started researching and there's quite a lot of convincing/supporting literature regarding a meat only diet. However, I'm glad I never went all the way with it. It's too tough a lifestyle to maintain if you're actually willing to turn down anything that isn't an animal. Your options are then incredibly limited.

                        I also decided to stop being so fucking lazy.

                        I'm not sure what the OP's reasons are, but looks like just general curiosity.

                          Good call Melody! I will def check those places out and after just briefly looking at the JuHa website, they may be who I go through as well.

                          iniQuity, I certainly didn't mean any disrespect to The Bear, I just didn't know his name and the LSD guy is how I had him filed in my head. I would love to read the PDF and I'll inbox you my email address and look up Steffanssson's paper. Its just something I've been thinking about, it makes sense to me. I'm not against never eating veg again by any means... if I do decide to give it a test drive it won't be until next year. I have some events coming up I need carbs for but in the meantime I'll keep looking into it.
