Also, I think it has to do with overall food quality. When we are overseas, we tend to what we normally do plus a treat or three -- because we are trying new things, but we also WALK a lot too. Most than normal for certain. So, we loose weight. Or maintain it anyway. So, while calories do count, I certainly eat more on holiday (while also exercising more).
Yeah. I think I'll have bacon on rare occasion, but otherwise. . . blech.I'm glad you're getting into seafood. (I just had a sudden craving for a platter of raw oysters) Pork doesn't work for me either. There is another thread going about that. Jammies posted an interesting WAPF study on blood coagulation after eating pork. It was a small study but it would be interesting to see it widened.
Holidays are different for different people. You and I probably do a lot more walking, hiking, etc. but some people sit by the pool sipping sweet drinks. So I guess that could vary a lot.
Im so there!
we are at least 7/8th sea coast ancestry so i am totally with you there. i never could do all that flax seed oil for omega 3s &-(Personally, I think I am descended from coastal living Groks. I don't feel right without my seafood.
dont want to hunt around here in a loin cloth. way too many nasty things in the bush to spike, graze and sting you. you are prob ok up in the hills and i have been hunting in a bikini there but you so have to watch for speargrass still. especially if you are running down a hill as it is called speargrass for a very good reason.Well, get your loincloth on. Let's go.
It's interesting what I am noticing about my appetite. It has sort of been MIA for a while. This morning though I woke up HONGRAY!
I had six eggs and some tea with raw hwc in it and, boom, done. No urge to snack the rest of the day. I'm going to see how long before I want dinner (or if I do).
This seems to go along with what J. Stanton is saying about "Eat like a predator, not like prey."
Now that I think about it and looking back on all the animals I saw in the wild in Africa, I think another part could be added to that that says, "Only have stress in your world like a predator, not like prey".
SAD eating people just seem to look like a bunch of nervous gazelles to me, constantly grazing and constantly on edge.
Predators have that one big rush in for the kill where you could very well end up getting seriously hurt or dead but, if that doesn't happen, you put that behind you and chill out while chowing down.
I remember seeing this one lioness who had just gorged on zebra rolling over on her back with all four paws in the air like a kitty cat under a tree to take a nap. She knew she had it made in the shade. Not a care in the world.
ZIOH. I was a member there several years ago. It was at the time a more open forum with a lot of discussion about the long-term health of ZC. Charles decided only true believers had a voice so he thinned the membership to about 15% of its high water mark. The Dirty Carnivore forum is an off-shoot of that move. They migrated to a new site that was made up of invites for awhile.
Some of the ZIOH folk were raw only or pemmican only for years. I remember some having problems with that--scurvy the most notable. Paul Jaminet also developed scurvy on a VLC diet, which gave us the PHD; so some good came from it.
There is a raw Paleo forum out there. Also look for Lex Rooker (he may have started the raw forum). He's been a raw carnivore for years-or was.
Retirement has afforded me the ultimate affluence, that of free time (Sahlins/Wells)
I have heard of Lex Rooker from his excellent manual on how to make pemmican. He is very insistent about drying the meat at a low enough temperature that it is technically still raw. That is a lot of work, however. I have decided to let US Wellness Meats do that for me.
I can see how raw eating could be interesting now and then and provide some variety but I don't think I want to go all the way that direction. I think the decreased nutrient availability of raw food may have had something to do with some of those people developing scurvy.
Steffanson (as quoted by ZIOH) says that several arctic expeditions, even when supplementing with lemon and lime juice, were dying off of scurvy left and right but that he and his guys were perfectly healthy on the Inuit diet.
I did some digging into Jaminet's claims about scurvy. He says he got this a result of a VLC diet including lots of veggies, NOT a ZC diet. He says the problem was the lack of starches but maybe it was the inclusion of the veggies. All of those plant anti-nutrients could have been binding up the nutrient absorption he needed.
Also if a ZC diet really causes scurvy, why were all the traditional Inuit not dead?
