    Marco, if you feel awesome, I am sure that is just great for you :):):)

    Look, I think it is when the liver cant clear out the excess vitA, and it starts to accumulate there.. and when it goes far, the liver cant work properly anymore. This will be so different for everybody!
    Also I think eating too much organs/liver, and overdoing it with butter, and cod liver/CLO, and also doing other things that are not good for liver health, like too much wine... nicotine gums, supplements etc. - that is when the shit hits the fan ;)
    It can take years.

    I have a friend who have destroyed her health with supplements and healthy super foods. Her eyes are already yellow, her liver is so sick. That is so sad. She still cant let go of the idea, the superfoods, smoothies, pills etc. are killing her.

    I was stupid thinking the organs are the best foods to eat. :rolleyes:In our poisoned word, and think about organs are the accumulators of poisons.. so how stupid is it to think it is good to eat those on a regular basis. Now very smart, but I am getting smarter :)

    I am probably lucky to have a sensitive body where things show up on skin, nails, wellbeing/mood, eyes etc way before I get any illness, so I am very healthy, but noticed my body trying tell me I am going in the wrong direction.

    I probably have no problem with vitamin A intake. I calculated and even with 5-6 eggs a day and 50g butter I am slightly above the recommended intake. And I dont eat it everyday. So I dont think its a too high intake problem. And I feel really good eating eggs and bacon for breakfast.
    But I think too much fish for me has problems on the iron side, because fish has not so much iron and I really dont eat much red meat. Here and there ground beef and occasionally a steak but most is fish. And fish has DHA but almost no iron. So maybe there is a problem and I need to step back a bit on fish to get iron in. When I think about it, I have really not so much iron intake. So it could be the food. Im cooking on cast iron and steel but that should not make any difference because of the patina on it.
    Im now on vaccation for 2 days with the family and will reread some things in the EpiPaleoRx book.

    I had lambs liver a few days ago, first time in months. The organ meats have high levels, but even in terms of muscle tissue meat, the Neu5gc angle is interesting. But this paper puts the Neu5gc of eggs at zero, and with the exception of caviar, so is seafood. In terms of overall diet, then the Neu5ac of eggs in figure 1 may push the ratio between gc and ac in favour of ac competitive uptake.....?:confused:

  4. I feel good and my body craves the yolks it seems and when I think about paleo man or woman, I can't imagine them not eating an egg as soon as they found it, not sharing it with family. The taking of and consumption of large animals seems a bit more difficult with their technology. Not saying they didnt eat large animals, but I think they ate a lot more rabbits, eggs, mice, grasshoppers, fish and waterfowl. I read a book about the primitive Paiutes, who didn't have contact with the outside world until the 1800s during the California gold rush. They lived without horses, agriculture, tanning, clothing, pottery, metals. They lived in smaller groups called the Rabbit eaters, the cattail eaters, the duck eaters ect. They would hunt birds and rabbits with nets woven from sage brush fibers. Lots of large animals around but hard to hunt big game with the technology they had. Different from the Hollywood image of a native American on horseback, dressed in buckskin, slaying bison with a bow and arrow.
    On the other hand, I can also fixate on something I think is good and over consume it, and we have access to plentiful eggs year round, which isn't natural in this latitude. I used to eat crazy amounts of raw spinach until I knew about oxalates. I also question research that begins with a statement that "it is well known that red meat causes cancer", but without data backing the claim or differentiating different types of meat, breed, environment, production method and the resulting meat composition.
    Because like Richard and unlike Inger, I have yet to develop a taste for organ meat, I feed them to my other animals to up cycle them. I had some beef hearts and tongues in the freezer that I fed to my laying hens. I give lamb hearts to my dog and let the pigs munch on the heads. The cow livers around here can have liver flukes, a parasite, from river drinking water, so I give those to the chickens or throw them in the pasture and let the other animals eat them. If an animal dies here, there is nothing left but a little fur or feathers after a day. lots of hungry critters competing for not much carb, fat or protein.
    Bon apatite, amigos!

    So I read a bit in the Epi-Paleo RX book this weekend and I wonder if all these things are still important. The focus was clearly on the labs to see how one is doing. Is this still a relevant thing?
    There is a big connection between D3 and hs CRP in the book, so I wonder if I should get at least a hs CRP testing to see if this is the reason for my low D3.
    The list goes on and on.
    I feel the rules for eating are still important especially in the northern hemisphere a lot above the equator. But I have fallen to the idea, that eating is not so important when you care for the light. But maybe thats only true near the equator. So the past 3/4 year the only thing I tried to do was eating much fish. Ive dont that. But the other rules I completely dismissed. I ate grains, I ate sweets. I ate in between sometimes (despite not so much because I feel its not doing me a favor). I didnt eat so much protein in the morning.
    Especially the protein load in the morning is doing me a large favor, I feel my liver metabolism is instantenously improved when I eat that way.

    One can easily come to that conclusion
    when there is a post in which Jack is saying that our bodies are able to synthesize totally new (long list) of elements when there is a need for them.

    [qu ote="Jack Kruse, post: 205227, member: 1031"]So members you thought that epic April 2016 webinar on the end game of mitochondria was intense? Well this reality might be more ground breaking to you: Now we have others going down the same path as I did ten years ago when I came up my my thesis that a mitochodria is capable of nuclear reactions using neutrinos. If I am correct in my speculation based upon my data collection and research we should find proof that elements below atomic number 26 can under go transmutation in cells (because of what occurs in mito) obviating the need for many raw materials of atoms for key enzymes and proteins from food. This means what is today believed to be essential no longer is. In other words: sunlight can be turned directly into matter based upon what the cell needs when it needs it. Lavoisier has established a mass conservation law which is valid in chemistry. Now we know that it is NOT true when nuclear reactions are involved. The review of more than two centuries of research demonstrates that this is not true in biology. It appears that all living organisms can under some circumstances produce nuclear reactions. However, there is an important need of finding an adequate theory to explain these results. It is highly probable that such a theory should also be capable of explaining Cold Fusion, or more generally, nuclear reactions in condensed matter. Another point is the irreproducibility of some experiments. Probably, in order to produce significant transmutation of an element, it is necessary that another element be missing. This is why taking calcium, magnesium, selenium, and boron may do more harm than good when heteroplasmy rate is very high. It seems that nature has a tendency to find ways to transmute an element into another to provide the necessary ingredients for the healthy growth of the four kingdoms of bacteria, fungi, plants and animals, including human beings. http://www.e-catworld.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/JCMNS-Biberian.pdf It appears most pictures of mito needs to be updated for this abilities now.[/quote]

    Drop the eggs and the butter for 90 days and see whats the CHANGE

    I could but I won't do it now, because I drop grains and sweets first and see what happens.
     
  9. My wife collected some wild goose eggs two days ago and they were delicious. No bad flavors like seagull eggs. There are no sweets or carbs in nature available here at 45 degrees N.

    Since beginning of july I changed my way of getting to work. I reactivated my old roadbike and ride my 12km (one way) to work. It has not only the effect of saving money (not using the car) but I have the opportunity to get more activity into my every day plus a little more direct sunlight (despite Im not riding upper body naked). The first two weeks were very hard but at the end of the 3. week now its getting easier. My endurance was very bad. I hadnt done any serious endurance work for a couple of years. Im adapting to the regular stress better and plan to use it as an HIIT opportunity. Kid no. 3 is on hits way but not yet hatched and it will change quite a bit in a few weeks.
    Although I begin to like roadbiking again I know I dont have the time to invest much time in it and dont see the sense in it to ride hours and hours for what. My time is rare soon, so I have to decide to invest in the talents I have and that is clearly the music, not sports and clearly not bicycling :D (know it from vo2 max tests in university). But I feel much better with that bicyling every day.

    I have not checked any blood work since April, but I see that sleep is a prime factor in my life. Because I feel very different when I go to bed earlier and sleep good. And I have gotten to bed later and later over the winter month. Also I noticed it is not good to bring the kids to bed and fall asleep AND wake up 1-2hrs later and do other things, then go do bed again at like 12pm. Its definitely not good and I try now not to fall asleep with the children. Of course evening time is now the only time I have time for myself and to do anything despite work and family, so I have to watch out. But no sleep time equals no quality time for me, that is clear. Because all I do without sleep is much more uneffective and more random so I better have a good nights sleep and use my free time effective.
    Randoms thoughts dropped...

    Biking was a good idea although it brought out, that I might have mild visual snow symptomx or something.
    Because I also have to ride in the dark (morning oder evening) I noticed symptomps more than with car driving which are:

    -bluefield entoptic phenomenon for 5 years since floaters in both eyes happended at the same time, mostly in bright light
    -long after images especially from strong light sources (sun, glare, reflection, incandescent blub etc.)
    -short after images (parts of second) after looking at an object and look on an even area
    -halos around light sources (especially at night) but for 5 years too I think
    -self light phenomenon of the eyes in the dark, I notice it here and then when I go to sleep and make it pitch black (otherwise I dont see it)
    -since beginning this year little black points when I look at dark objects at day time in bright light
    -when I look at a lamp in the dark a few second and then look in the dark, the after image has some white fizzling dots for a few seconds
    -after physical activity (bike riding) when I look at a light source and then into a dark background I have a flickering image of the light source for a few second, like the retina wobbles, the flickering gets weaker over the time of 1-2 min. after end of the physical effort (so maybe a different problem) and finally disappears but this is nuts when it happends in the dark
