      I already know A, D, K2 work together with amino acids, calcium, magnesium and other nutrients to form bone and control metabolism.

      The flesh lacks essential minerals for bone formation. Do you have the nutritional information of blood?

      The difference between me and paleo/primal/vegan followers is that I follow the truth... not what someone puts infront of my nose as false truth. Knowledge for its own sake is useless.
      I don't think you understand.
      No one here is advocating eating flesh (muscle meats) alone.
      This is a much more broad approach including flesh/muscle meat and fat, organs, seafoods including raw shellfish (a good deal of minerals there), and some vegetable and fruits as one sees fit, just not central to ones diet.


      BTW, Gorillas also known to "chew their cud" so to speak... by eating the partially digested fecal matter that they pass.
      Yum!
      They sometimes even share it with each other, or other gorillas will steal it and eat it.
      Not going there.

      And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

      • Paleobird, if you saw the picture of my meal from the "What have you eaten today thread" that I posted yesterday, you could be proud. Not that I care if you are, but I think you would be.

        I pretty much only eat veggies if they a) enhance the flavor of my meal (so I end up using them as faux spices in that way) or b) are fermented because I like getting my probiotics in a natural package (boo expensive pills) and I love the tangy flavors.

        I'm slowly going more and more carnivorous myself. Been overloading on eggs too recently.
        "The cling and a clang is the metal in my head when I walk. I hear a sort of, this tinging noise - cling clang. The cling clang. So many things happen while walking. The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

          Cows actually "chew their cud" as well.

          And just to be clear, muscle meat is a great source of often missed minerals from veggies such as selenium, zinc, iron, copper, and phosphorous. Get enough meat in your diet and never need to pop a Brazil Nut for the selenium ever again.

          And I won't even BEGIN my dissertation on why eggs...

          Are.

          Fucking.

          AWESOME.

          • I think potatoes are more of a salt delivery system for me. I fork mash them with about two tblsp of half and half or almond milk, then douse them with salt and a smidge of pepper. I also like them next to runny fried eggs. And sure enough, as the weather starts to warm, I'm eating them less and less.

                I'm a bit of a nerd.
                Facts stick to me... sometimes they are weird ones.
                Like I always remember that a blue whale has an average penis length of 8 to 10 feet, and I know that is what a "dork" actually is.
                Sometimes conversation is awkward.
                I tend to answer what people intend as rhetorical questions.

                Yes, I LOVE documentaries.
                David Attenborough's voice is divine.
                Right up there with Carl Sagan's IMO.
                I like those guys for background noise.
                If there are no decent documentaries on I generally prefer silence and gentle whisper of saltwater pumps...
                While I read something nerdy.

                  Nice!
                  I am kind of getting over the whole fermented veggies thing too. I do still get fermented dairy and the digestive system is happy so I don't think they really are necessary. They could be helpful if you are coming back from a bout of antibiotics of something but, I think they are something else that has been "sold" to us as if we *needed* it. If the system is healthy I just don't see the need.

                  • So, this is how my diet is shaping up on a day to day basis.

                    grass fed ruminant meat (cow, lamb, goat)
                    organ meat (from above critters)
                    bone marrow(ditto)
                    bone broth (my stock is really concentrated and like really stiff jello. used in cooking and mixed with water to drink)
                    eggs
                    fish
                    shellfish
                    crustaceans
                    fish roe
                    pemmican
                    raw dairy products (butter, cream, kefir, cheese, labne)
                    "condiment veggies"
                    ** avocados
                    **onions
                    **garlic
                    **tomato sauces/salsas
                    **bell and chile peppers
                    the non-plant veggies i.e. seaweed and mushrooms
                    coconut products (manna, oil, cream)
                    occasional nuts
                    lime and lemon juice squeezed in my Pelegrino
                    rooibos tea (high in vitamin C and antioxidants)
                    *eta:herbs and spices. Some favs, basil, oregano, garlic, turmeric, cinnamon,nutmeg,paprika

                    for cooking I use coconut oil for seafood, tallow for meat, and butter for eggs. (that's just the way it tastes best to me)


                    So, can anybody see any spot where I could be lacking in anything nutritionally essential?

                    • No you don't NEED the fermented veggies, but dear lord, if you could taste the sauerkraut I get at my local farmer's market you'd be addicted too.

                      And I LOVE spicy greens like arugula, mustard greens, turnip greens, ect. I could care less about the nutrients I get from them. I don't really use enough in my meals to worry about that anyway. I sauté them along with my meats and kind of let their pungent spiciness infuse into the meat, sauce, marinade, or whatever for the extra flavor. Faux spices as I said. Works like a charm!

                      • I applaud what you're doing.

                        I quietly went 99% carnivore at the end of December 2012 and remained almost entirely so about two weeks (no fruits, vegetables, no anything other than meat & grass-fed butter) before slipping back to what I was before: paleo/primal.

                        In retrospect, a mistake!

                        Lesson learned!

                        • I'm like you, drumroll. Those greens also make *excellent* pestos/herb butters, so thre's a more "carnivore" option for them (than, you know, sautee or salads).

                            Yeah, I should have included herbs/spices in my list because I love pesto and my neighbors grow some great basil.

                            I have never really liked those bitter greens though. Only ate them because I thought I should. And I came to the honest realization that I don't like sauerkraut, even the good Famers Market kind. I actually threw out a few jars.

                                No, not necessarily. But I do like raw oysters and sashimi and a good steak tartare now and then.
