    i get european sheep and goat cheese because i figure it's more likely the critters actually ate grass and not grain. kerrygold makes ok grass-fed cheddar.

    imported cheeses that began as raw, like brie, must be aged 60 days before they can be sold in the u.s. i've had some smuggled, illegal raw cheese, but they are very hard to find.
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

      The China Study: Fact or Fallacy? Raw Food SOS

      this contains her own info, plus links to scientific articles, explaining that the data within the china study does NOT support its conclusions or recommendations.

      • I live in remote Alaskan and depend on shipping for lots of special needs items. I've been getting raw cheeses through US Wellness Meats. I can't find a source for raw cream anywhere, but I'm working on that. US Wellness is a great source for so many primal things. I've especially enjoyed their liverwurst and bacon.

          My boyfriend has to be on watch anytime I feel a twitch or cramp or something, because I will rush to WebMD to see what's wrong with me. I'm the queen of self-diagnosis! Luckily I don't get sick often.
          All of my Google searches are preceded by "home remedy" or "natural remedy" now.

          Gut update for anyone interested: I'm reaching Fiber Menace. i believe my issue is gut dysbiosis, which means my intestinal flora is totally jacked up and causing my constipation. Somewhat relieving to have an idea of what's going on! Still eating yogurt like a mad woman, it's great. My second batch came out beautifully and I'm making more soon (because I'm running out!). It lasts me about a week, since I don't always limit myself to one serving a day. I might look into making kefir, since it sounds like it's pretty easy.

              For those of us here in California, Organ Pastures makes an excellent raw cheddar. They just can't ship it out of state. Silly laws about that.

                Oh, last week I had a brain eating amoeba after soaking in some natural hot springs. Turns out it was an infected piercing.

                • I have just accepted an offer of a new job based in a converted barn on a farm. Could working there make me more primal? I saw and heard grass-fed cows mooing through an open window during my job interview. There is a fab farm shop located nearby and conveniently located on my route home.

                  • Lost another 1.5lbs this week! I am 1lb away from having lost 10% of my initial weight (194.4) since the end of January. Loving that I'm not hungry all the time and can even have some ice cream (real ingredients) while losing.

                    • Awesome job teach2183!

                      I just completed a 10 mile bike ride. I haven't been on a bike in probably 8 years! My husband is an all or nothing kinda guy during workouts, so we just kept going. I feel ok now, not sure how it'll be the next couple days. It was flat trail at least!

                        That is awesome! I hope you are feeling great, too. Full of energy and strong. I am working on eliminating sugars after mastering grain/dairy removal. That, and too many nuts are the reason I am not losing the 5lbs I want to lose. I feel good, though. Several people have asked me if i am a runner over the past few weeks! Makes me think I am doing something right...

                          Yes, the energy is great! I can now stay up and not be exhausted. I no longer need daily naps. And I can play with my kids all day. Really a new lease on life.

                          • I really had fun doing the four day fast that Piscator started. That's the longest I've ever gone before but it was surprisingly easy. I ate dinner last night (a bunch of marrow bones) but now it's 5 pm and I haven't gotten hungry again yet. I lost five pounds and gained back one so not bad overall.

                            • I am now not so sure I am seeing the scale moving since my return to LCHF. I feel great though. I bought some pants and shorts. The jeans are size 6 like always but seem so small and tight. It remains to be determined whether I can actually wear them in real life. The other pants are a size4 and also very small. But what is up with the clown pants waists on everything?

                              I went hiking yesterday and drank too much water without enough salt. Ended up very puffy and swollen all over. Photographs of me show a fat lady sitting near a creek. Ugh. I may never look slender.

                                i'm small too, only 5'2", and i think the problem is that most pants now are meant to be worn on the hips, not the waist, so the "waist" runs bigger. impossible for me to find pants that don't need to be hemmed, even jeans, so i just wear more skirts.
