    Living off animal foods, avoiding vegetables. need sugestions, answers, etc

    Primal Fuel
    I find myself, naturally, eating Raw Organic Butter, as my staple food. For some reason, I find it to be the most purest, FAT SOURCE, any city dweller, has access to buy. It's such a simple food to me. It seems like the rawest food, that could be bought at the store...

    I find myself NOT eating any produce, vegetable foods, at all; because I had a terrible experience with raw conventional spinach... and in the back of my mind, I'm considering eating organic cabbage, as that is probably the healthiest option, one because it's a "salad" type, and the outer leaves protect it from outside variables, and going organic, should be fine right? ...However, I'm still a little paranoid, because of my experience with spinach and it's oxalic acid. (i fasted on it for a day, and my whole body went hayfire, especially my teeth)

    I've been eating raw grass fed beef, but I think it has an anti-biotic effect on my system, and destroys all my beneficial bacteria in my system. I've downed some conventional raw eggs, and they give me lose stools. anyone have success on organic omega 3 whatever eggs? Right now, my brain kind of wants to live off of dairy products, namely butter, cultured cheese, and organic yogurt. Because my "science" brain is telling me, that is the best source of probiotics.

    Point being, I'm looking for suggestions on the cleanest, rawest, simplest foods. Also i wonder if cabbage holds any nutrition in it, because I've grown accustomed to live solely on an animal based diet, because of the zero carbs, in it.

    But basically when it comes down to my food decisions, I'm looking for PRO-Biotic Foods, vs ANti-Biotic. I'm thouroughly convinced that anti-biotic substances, are death. and pro-biotic foods, are life-giving. I'm convinced the reason we eat is for "life-force" aka. probiotics aka beneficial bacteria. and if this bacteria is wiped out, then we get sick, and grow fat. but i could be wrong, because there's so many variables with pesticides, man-made stuff, effecting my decision making, and scientific reasoning... for instance, this morning I bit into raw grass fed beef, but felt as if It was destroying my beneficial bacteria.. almost as if I sense some sort of anti-biotic in the meat... anyways...

    , comments, suggesstions on better sources of food "meat, eggs, dairy produce etc", remarks, etc. THANKS

    The primal way is not some raw food woo diet. The human killer app that we all have is the ability to cook our food and draw that much greater nourishment from it. Raw foodists all look like cancer victims and can only eke out a pathetic existence in rich industrial societies by eating alot of processed vegetable oils and as you do, butter. If our ancestors since homo habilis had tried to subsist on raw food on the African savannah, we as a species would have died out a long time ago. Hell, according to a German study on raw foodists almost half of the women in it stopped menstruating completely and these were middle class and affluent types. Good survival odds those for a small band of foraging humans on the African savannah where half the women are infertile...

    I suppose you could try wind-dried stockfish smeared with butter as thick as your forearm but why would anyone want to live (I use the word loosely) like that? Fermented surströmming, fermented hákarl, and maybe fermented seabird, Inuit-style could be options but these are...aquired tastes shall we say. Faroese skerpukjöt which is fermented and wind-dried mutton would maybe do in a pinch. Relatively soft organ meats are sometimes snacked on by Greenlanders and taste...ok I guess. Whale blubber that's been pickled in whey is a delectable snack IMO and I suppose one could eat it full-time but supply might be an issue for you.

    I think you may have bigger problems than what this forum can help you with.

    Find yourself a shrink.

    ...and an oven.

    ...before you hurt yourself.

    Beef is not antibiotic.

    That's all I have to add here.
