    Isn't a 48-72 hr fast the best reset you can do? Why start pounding milk or potatoes or whatnot?

    Don't eat anything for 2-3 days and your metabolism resets itself nicely. It's like hiting the CLEAR button.

      Hm.... *I* have fresh, raw Jersey milk in the fridge from my very own cow. I'm having to STOP myself from drinking it. Maybe... for, eh hem, the sake of science I should try this
      The process is simple: Free your mind, and your ass will follow.

        Oh, I'm a big fan of fasting too. This really seems different though in that there is a lot of *nutrition* without a lot of *calories*.

        I'm so jealous that you have your own cow. That is the ultimate in fresh.

        I really think it does make a difference that it be UNpasteurized milk. With all the enzymes killed by the heating, milk jsut becomes a bunch of carbs, protein, and fat. It's the enzymes that break all that down and help you make efficient use of it.

          Awesome, great to hear it's starting out so well for you. I really wanted to start this week but we're being forced out of our rental house due to a bird (and bird mite) infestation and I can't fit a week's worth of raw milk in our RV fridge. Hopefully I can start next week.

            This sounds interesting. We can't get raw milk in my part of the state, so I'll never know if I could drink it.

              You can't get raw milk in Portland? I do recall some illness happening there recently due to raw milk, is that why?

                Oh, I can't express how jealous I am! I have dreams about Jersey milk from my own cow. I would love that cow so much she'd have a fresh wreath of flowers around her neck every day

                  Are you in Portland OR or ME? I used to live in PDX and lots of people do milk runs to Washington.

                  The other option would be to use something like Norris milk and culture it yourself. Homemade yogurt and kefir from that milk would be a very close second anyway. I don't have my awesome Jersey milk source anymore but when I culture the brown swiss milk it digests as well as the really good stuff.

                    Portland, Maine?

                    To my knowledge it is only legal to buy it at the farm. I live in the southern part of the state, where there is more development and fewer dairy farms. I didn't find one listed in a county anywhere near me.

                      PWM, not PDX.

                      I don't drink fresh milk because I am lactose intolerant, and cooking it does something very bad to the casein that I react to. I'm not sure what Norris milk is. Is that a breed of cow?

                      If I had access to raw milk I would try it. I don't have an issue with yogurt except I just don't want it very often. I'm okay with cheese and heavy cream.

                      I couldn't come to grips with the idea of going on an all-yogurt fast. That would kill my appetite.

                        I have committed to a week trial of this. Bought the supplies. It does make grocery shopping simple and it's nice not to have to cook when it's so hot.

                        Norris milk? Richard was doing his own kefir making for this experiment. I would like to try that too seeing as how the only raw kefir that Organic Pastures sells is nonfat.

                        If you problem with milk is just with the lactose not the casein, drinking it raw solves the problem. Some unlucky folks are intolerant of both.

                          A question for the fermentation experts around here.

                          Would the grains needed to make kefir be different if one were using goat as opposed to cow milk?

                          I am thinking about trying this milk intervention sometime but with all goat products instead.

                            All dairy kefir uses the same grains.

                            Can even be used with nut milks/coconut milk or *shiver* soy milk (may the gods forbid!).
                            If using the dairy kefir grains to make nut/coconut milk kefirs you have to make real milk kefir with them every few batches to revitalize the grains... or they poop out on you.

                            I hear some people say coconut milk kefir is quite nice. But I've never gone there.
                            I just use coconut milk for cooking, and sometimes I separate the watery part off and make whip out of it.

                            The first batch when you switch milks doesn't always come out just right though as the culture takes a bit of adjustment. Might be a good way to split a set of grains though.

                                I tried Raw milk and cream. I love it. But I can't drink it because I'm lactose intolerant. It has worse effects on me than pasturized milk or cream.
