*agri-eater = a person who eats food that cannot be eaten in the raw state. The agricultural revolution of 10,000 BC made mankind dependent on grains and legumes, neither of which can be eaten raw (raw peas have anti nutrients in them, as do all legumes, even if they are often eaten raw.)

I call them "Neoliths".

I can attest to the affect of grain on a person. If I eat bread, or grain with a high amount of sugar, the next day I find myself in a deep, dark depression that won't lift until late afternoon/evening.

Food & Diet / How to quickly get the seeds out of a pomegranate

This is a very helpful article. Pomegranates are much tastier now that I can just eat a bowl of seeds by the spoonful.

Food & Diet / Stage one, but not eating during the day
« on: August 13, 2009, 05:53:33 AM »
My stage one is more like stage two. I am concerned I am not eating enough fruits and nuts during the day. Yesterday I only had nuts. I would keep these items by my computer, but then the Dietista voice booms in my head NO UNCONSCIOUS SNACKING. Is unconscious snacking a non-issue for this diet?

It may be the food. I have been keeping the nuts in the freezer to keep them from going rancid. Trouble is, now they taste like the inside of the freezer. And I seem to be very finicky about the fruit, if it is the least bit "old" (bruises, soft spots), I won't eat it. And I don't like putting it in the fridge, because I have sensitive teeth. I guess I respect that I'm as particular as I am, but it sure is inconvenient!

I admit I've started this stage one several times. I've never made it this far before--I guess practice makes perfect. The thing that I'm doing different this time is every morning I read the introduction and stage one. It helps me immensely to keep focused, going unconscious is the thing that causes me to go off the plan. I'll probably continue to do that through stage three and beyond until eating this way becomes habit, however long that takes.

Food & Diet / Re: Stage One diet question

The main meal has been at about 3-5pm for me. I don't feel there is any problem with it. One day this week the client I have been running errands for wanted me to take her out to have breakfast (which was around noon) and I made that my meal for the day.

The pancakes were delish, I devoured them. But the hash browns were discusting, it reminded me of the time I ate cake that had sour cream frosting in it that had gone bad.
She said, "Put some ketchup on it." I started to and then after a few bites, I was like, "No, I'm not putting that in my body." Before this diet I would have smothered it and chowed down.

I have also noticed how sweet things things are that were previously non-sweet, e.g., Flour Tortillas and croutons.

I have found a website that facilitates people with common interests in a given geographic location to meet in person. And they have a paleo diet category.

According to Nora Gedgaudas (sp?), Lack of Vitamin D can also cause SKIN CANCER. And you don't make vitamin D if you have sunscreen on.

Getting your vitamin D through sunlight is the most effective way, To get enough vitamin D from fortified milk, you'd have to drink a quart of milk a day.

Because of kids staying inside and parents putting sunscreen on them when they do go out, kids are starting to get rickets again.

I remember eating this way and being in classes.

An hour into the class everyone would be at various levels of half asleep and I would be all enzyte guy.

Without the reference of course! I'm a girl.

Food & Diet / Recipe for Easy Greens
« on: June 18, 2009, 11:23:22 AM »
Get a microwavable dish, a large pyrex measuring cup does nicely. Fill it with water and microwave until the water boils. I carefully remove it from the microwave and throw in the washed greens. I have done it with swiss chard and spinach and this method cooks both perfectly--bright green, yet tender.

I wonder if a humidifier (for when you are sick) would be the same thing as a "low-temperature distiller"?

« on: April 28, 2009, 10:30:04 AM »
well good, I am glad you are going to make changes to your website that will make your website more interactive. I was tempted to go to the other website to write about my progress (yes, I finally begun...week two of general Paleo). But I like the culture here more. The design of it, the intimate setting--so few people posting compared to the other means to me that we are busy being outside with nature and just checking back instead of being cavepeople at our computer all day. So I'll not do that; and instead I await your changes, Matt.

Fitness & Exercise / Re: A quick "deck of cards" workout
« on: April 10, 2009, 11:07:11 PM »
I had a similar strategy for "keeping things interesting". I walked around the gym where I had a membership and made a list of the forms of cardiovascular exercise available, then I numbered the items and then bought a die with that equaled the number on the list--or I would tweak it somehow, or just have the higher numbers be re-rolls.

Every day that I exercised, I would roll the die to see what I would be doing 30 minutes of that day. It kept me exercising for 6 weeks!

But then I lost interest, I think it was a combination of rolling pedal machines (which I really came to hate doing), coming in every day (doctor's orders) I realized just how dirty and ghetto my gym really was (like when one of the members informed me that bums hop the fence and bathe in the pool; "don't worry," he said "they put in enough chemicals in this pool to kill anything"), and I found a better non-gym exercise routine, and now I have a job that has me doing plenty of walking and lifting.

I get my water from the "Glacier" machines out at the front of grocery stores. This is basically city tap that has gone through carbon filtration, reverse osmosis, UV Light and maybe some other things.

Yeah, I'm spoiled now. I won't drink anything else.

Does anybody know if leather jackets are edible?

Not these


They are the larvae of the crane fly, or so-called "'Skeeter Eaters". They don't eat mosquitos, the adults don't eat anything at all and the larvae feed on plant roots (they also will burrow through potatoes). I have these things all in my lawn, they don't seem to be hurting anything. But there's such an abundance and at about an inch long (2.5 cm) they seem like they would be a worthwhile meal.

In the US there is 2% more UV radiation (the percentage is higher in Australia).

More than when? I don't remember.

Is 2% significant enough to be dangerous? I dunno.

Cordain: People in other countries that eat a natural diet don't get skin cancer.

Not if malaria or contaminated water kills them first.

However we need UV radiation  to turn cholesterol in our skin into Vitamin D. Sunlight, cod liver oil, and supplements are your only source if you are a non-dairy paleo. Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to breast and prostate cancer and osteoporosis (calcium is not enough, you need vit. D and other minerals, too).

Sunflower seeds?

I think those are paleo.

The Voting Booth / Re: Creationism Vs Evolution
« on: January 08, 2009, 08:46:38 PM »
I'm an environmentalist with a minor in Biology and so I can tell you that there is much more humility in the biological sciences than there are in the physical sciences -- or religion, for that matter. There are no 'laws' in biology; there is no such thing as the 'law of evolution', they are all theories and nothing is ever proven.

As for creationism and intelligent design, in the language of Biology they are at best hypotheses: an opinion that hasn't been {read: can't be} tested. If it could be tested, they would test it; and if it did turn out to be as plausible as the evolutionary theory then, and only then, would they rewrite the textbooks adding creationism as a competing theory.

And, no, a biologist having a conversation with God wouldn't be submittable as evidence.

What about carbon dating and all of those fossils? Can a rational person explain to me how this evidence has other explanations besides evolution? I have to admit that I stopped listening after the blowhards started arguing that carbon dating is an illusion and the dinosaur bones were put there by the devil to trick us and tempt us away from God's word.  (the squeaky wheel fallacy successfully executed)


"'God created the Earth in seven days.' A foolish brag, I feel." -- Eddie Izzard

Because of the either/or format of the poll, I didn't vote as my beliefs actually do lie in that pesky gray area. Because it is untestable, I have some beliefs of my own on creation. Like the snake eating its own tail, creator and creation happened at the same time because they are pretty much the same thing. No idea is a new idea, they are always based on earlier ideas. Evolution follows the same path. And the entity of God(dess) was created by man because 'existence' wasn't very user-friendly. But being contrived doesn't diminish the value of deity, it is simply whatever one desires in a concentrated form that one can relate to. Assimilation is futile; deity is different for every person, even if a group of people get together and all call it by the same name.

So there you go, the religion of Lone_woLfieism. You can buy my book on ebay its called
Holy $#!+: Manifesto of a Lone_woLf.


Food & Diet / The Recipe Bin

You want to eat dinner...

But it has been a long day and you are too tired to cook....

And besides, there isn't a single clean dish in the house....

No problem, just do what this person did.

Philosophy / The Environmentalist's Dilemma
« on: January 05, 2009, 04:04:41 PM »
Environmental groups urge people to eat a meat-free (preferably vegan) diet. This is because it saves resources such as energy, fresh water, and land that could grow more human food or land that could revert back to or remain wild land.

But when you take a longer view, agriculture caused all of these problems. So it follows that more agriculture is not the solution, but rather more of the same.

How does one live the paleolithic diet while being environmentally friendly? --And still being part of modern society. Is such a thing even possible? Does one do for the planet, or do they do for themselves and theirs?

Of course environmentally palatable options exist, but they seem to only be available and affordable to a dwindling number. How does it rest on the soul to know that you can eat basic foods for optimum health when others are stuck with a grain-based diet and nutritional deficiencies ?

Fitness & Exercise / Re: We need more gyms like these!
« on: January 05, 2009, 02:30:27 PM »
I think Johnny Grubes' video was a hoax. 155lb grandpa pulling a 2600lb car 20 yards doing a power wheel crawl?! Really?! :o   ::)

I think that's what I like most about functional fitness, the goals are easier to achieve because they are not boring and you can take them outside the gym and use them any time. But my goals are more modest; I'm currently working on being able to do a FULL range squat in an effort to escape the chair and knee-pad paradigms.

Food & Diet / Re: An argument for Milk...
« on: January 03, 2009, 10:43:55 PM »
rule #1: Your body is never wrong.

rule #2: In the event that you suspect your body is wrong, see rule #1.

The whole premise of this site is 'be true to your biology'. The point is paleolithic peoples didn't have regular access to milk, if any at all. Just because some populations held unto their lactase or starved to death, doesn't mean it's good for us. We weren't drinking it when we got up on two legs, or when we began to use tools, or when our brains were growing. No point in allowing a neolithic f00d on your site, Matt, the lesser of the evils is still an evil.

rant complete

I propose we take a page from Ray Audette's Book and, if you want to know if your body tolerates a food, abstain completely from it for three months, and then try it and see if there is any reaction. That is the only way to know and it is different for every person.

I think Steve Pavlina may have experienced his tolerances when he went on a extremely low-fat raw food diet for 30 days. It was fruits and veggies, and only fruits and veggies.
Read this to see what he was doing and then click on 'day 31' for when he returns to his normal vegan diet--have an icepack ready; it's a real forehead-slapper!

Food & Diet / Re: Fatty Liver - don't lose the gut too fast.
« on: January 01, 2009, 09:23:28 PM »
Yeah, I'm sorry, Matt but after a week or so my body wasn't having any of your diet proposal. Although it seemed to me more psychological. I would lose interest in fruits and nuts and just not eat anything until my feast time, which kept getting earlier and earlier. I think it would be better for me to just cut out one f00d group at a time, starting with sugar.
