    Almost all (but not all) of these experiments have positive results, or are at least harmless. But I'm glad there are others who are willing to step forward and risk taking one for the team before I am ready to try out something bizarro.

    I might be willing to try a cacao bean fast sometime in the future...

    I am using milk to get through my down day today. I find that 8-10 oz fills me right up and makes me very, very happy. Around here we don't call Mosey's milk "milk." It's referred to as "vanilla milkshake." Yeah, it's that damn good.

    Ya think? It's funny. I skim the cream off to make butter, cream cheese etc, it's called "skim milk." People look at me weird, because they're thinking of the water skim milk from the store. Makes me laugh.

    Oh, lighten up. It's an experiment.

    Yes, if I try this agin it will be with goat milk. More fat, less carbs.

    Holding at 8 down for four days.

    Except it lacks iron i suppose. So if you have a tendency to blood once a month, iron supplements might be a good idea.
    I think Zach just agreed with me! Record this day in MDA history. And, I'm all done with that messy bleeding phase of life. Also, women produce extra blood which is expelled monthly. It doesn't come out of their circulatory system like a blood donation.

    Yeah, real skimmed milk from Jersey is like whole milk from some other cow. It still tastes so thick and creamy even when giving up its cream for the most amazing butter in the world. Jersey cows are so dang cute too.

    I don't know what they do to that skim milk in the store but it must involve water.

    PB, no hating on milk here. If i had access to it i sould be drinking twice as much as i do now. I might even try this "fad".

    Thats interesting about creating extra, but wouldnt that extra still drain iron stores? Otherwise why are docs always telling chicks to get lots of iron?

    I think that people associate low iron with women because of menses but I don't think that is really it at all... I think that it's a completely separate issue. Mostly absorption.

    I have reason to believe this because I had low iron issues for several years which I had to work hard to over come, and during those years I SHOULD have been having menses but was not, so while people would always assume it was age/menses related it wasn't. I went 3 straight years without a period and still had low iron issues.

    For me it was definitely absorption, no way around it.
    The hint was that I had an autoimmune disease that was then still unclassified as autoimmune...
    I couldn't tolerate the iron pills without becoming ill and had to eat lots of natural heme-iron foods.

    Being gluten free has drastically changed things for the better with my iron absorption, regulated my menses to a normal pattern, and reduced my symptoms of my diseases.

    Not saying everyone is gluten intolerant... but eating a lot of processed foods isn't helping.
    Crap food crap absorption.*

    I think I'm going to try this. I want to lose... plus I'm sick of cooking

    It's hard to get raw milk here, but this Jersey milk is readily available. Would it do the trick?
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    I see you linked to a UK website. Hello from North East Lincs!

    I've recently purchased 7 pints of milk and 7 bottles of Kefir from this farm:

    Raw Goats Milk | Goats Milk Soap | Kefir Probiotic Yogurt | Chuckling Goat

    I'm extremely happy with their products and customer service. Having been dairy free for over 4 years, I can quite easily digest this raw goat milk. I'm almost out so I'll be placing a big order to save money. (buying in bulk means 1 pint of milk is £1.10 which is 60p cheaper than buying the minimum 7 pints)

    Although they are not certified "organic", I asked them about their practices and they abide by organic standards, but don't see the advantage of paying thousands of £'s for the certificate for a few reasons.

    The even make their own food when the grass isn't very green!

    Let me know if you want more info, I've had a long discussion with them and they appreciate my interesting questions.

    Seriously, it's great stuff!
