Juice Fasting and Sharing Raw Food Knowledge By Author Angela Stokes

Kevin: What's on your food plan now? What do you put on your food plan from day to day?

Angela:: Well, I'm 100% raw now and I have been for about two and a half years. So that
was something that just kind of happened, like my whole raw food path began five and a half years ago now. And then it just kind of came to the point two and a half years ago where I just became 100% raw. So that's where I'm at these days. I have kind of three underlining tenants about like the stuff that I put into my body. One of them is I try to drink juice twice a day. Another one is I try to mono meal fruit. And the last one is I try to eat simple combinations of things.

Kevin: Okay.

Angela:: So that's my kind of three touch things around what I take into my body. It tends to be that I eat in a window between about 11:30 in the morning and about 8:00 at night. And so normally the short time of the time will be like I'll have a juice around 11:30 and then I'll have some kind of fruit mono meal. So that will tend to be like berries or cherries or some kind of stone fruit or something. And then I have my biggest meal of the day in the middle of the day.

Angela:: Because that you know when like the digestive fire is the largest and the sun is
highest in the sky and it makes sense. It's like then I've got the whole of the rest of the day to use that stuff. So I'll put in the heaviest thing around then which would tend to be something like a salad with avo let's say or some Norrie rolls or my favorite latest discovery is Chiai seeds.

Kevin: Okay.

Angela:: And so I've been like making up combinations of that with it. But something kind
of, something with fat in it and something heavy, like in the middle of the day. And then I have a kind of gap and then later on I'll kind of repeat the process but on a lesser scale. So I'll have another juice and I'll probably have some other fruit. And maybe a green smoothie or a very small salad or something like that. And then that's it, I'm done. So that tends to be the structure. And when I first started writing my food plans, I found that I needed to be very, very clear with myself about exactly what it was that I was having at each point. Because I was insane around food at that point in my life. These days, there's more more balance because I've been doing this for so many years. So when I'm writing out my plan these days, I can just say, fruit. And I know from my being now that means I'm going to eat like little box of blackberries or something.

Kevin: Okay.

Angela:: You know, and I'm not going to sit there and eat like nine pounds of blackberries. [Laugh] So I can trust myself so much more these days because of the process I've come through. Whereas in the beginning, I literally needed to write down like two apples or something. Otherwise I would've ate the whole bag, that's where I was at so.

Kevin: That's incredible. Where are you going now? You've said where you are not and you're in a fantastic place. Where do you go from here?

Angela :: Yeah. The big question. So earlier this year I did a three-month juice fever. I lived on just fruit and vegetable juices and coconut water for three months, which was an intense experience in itself. And when I came out of that, that's really where those three underlining tenants that I have behind the way I eat now, that's really where they came from.

Kevin: Okay.

Angela:: Because you do not come out of the other side of living on just juice for three months without going through some pretty serious gifts.

Kevin: Yeah.

Angela:: And what you want to put into your body. I want things to be very simple and very clean. However, I do not want to take things so far to the point that it feels uncomfortable to me to go and eat in a raw food restaurant or eat some raw cake or something. It's like, I still want to have fun,
you know?

Kevin: Yeah. [Laugh]

Angela:: So I feel my body, the human body, anyone's body, any animal, it's such an incredible healing mechanism that's in there. You start to give it the slightest chance to start healing itself and it just goes for it.

Kevin: Yeah.

Angela:: Like I lost 105 pounds in the first year of being raw. My body was just like, who-
hoo! [Laugh] Just going for it. And I feel how it still is going in that direction, everything needs to be simpler and it just wants to clean and, and undo everything and it's like going back towards being a baby and it, and for most people it's like going even beyond that because most of us did not come from mothers who were very clean physically. So it's like going raw is like going kind of pre-birth in terms of the detox work and the reversing that you can do. And so it's like, okay I do, I love that and I embrace that and I do want to go with that. But I want to have fun too. I do not want to just be like getting to the point where I eat like one head of romaine in a day and I'm done. I definitely still want to enjoy food. And I see that very clear that for me as a human, food is not just about physical fuel. There is an emotional attachment there, undeniably. And that's how I ended up in so much of a state as I did. But now that whole emotional attachment to food is in a very different space. But it's still there. So I want to keep things the way that they are right now for at least let's say the next year or something and just see how it goes. And I would love to do another huge juice fever like that again in the future, another three-month thing. Because that was just a phenomenal experience.

Kevin: Do you feel that it's okay to be emotionally attached to food?

Angela:: I feel like whatever is happening for a person is what's happening. So, if there was to be some kind of ideal state of one's relationship with food, I think it would be phenomenal to experience having no attachment emotionally. Right now I'm reading a book that absolutely
fascinates me called Anastasia by Vladimir McGreen.

Kevin: Okay.

Angela:: And she is a woman who is apparently living out in the forest of Russia and she is completely wild. She lives out in the forest. She has no dwelling, nothing. She just lives in the forest and eats from the forest. She's truly raw.

Kevin: Yeah.

Angela:: She's not eating like blueberry cheesecake raw. Okay? She's eating nuts from
the trees. She's picking berries. And the thing that fascinates me about it is that she has apparently no emotional attachment to food whatever. She eats like an animal. She'll be walking along and she'll grab some berries and she eats them and then that's it. That is her meal and she's done and she's on to the next thing. She does not think about it. She never sits down and eats a meal. She just grabs foods as physical fuel for this physical body that she's in. And that to me is really interesting. I can not imagine being in that kind of state in this lifetime I'm in right now.

Kevin: Well, it's interesting because we're told to sit down and eat your meals.

Angela :: Right.

Kevin: It's a whole different paradigm. Man, that's incredible.

Angela :: Yeah.

Kevin: So what do you do on a daily basis besides the food log?

Angela:: When I wake up in the morning, the most important thing for me to do right then
is to give my day over to the universe. So I always just want to give that away like, may thy will not mine be done. Like if it's for the good of all, oneness everywhere. Just please work through me to make myself a channel for whatever it is that wants to manifest through me that day. And so I will give over the day to the goodness of all oneness and then I will, I do yoga. I do the five Tibetan rights.

Kevin: Oh cool.

Angela:: Yeah and I've done that for about two and a half years now. And I just feel like
that helps me to connect to the earth and to the heavens as well. And I'll do meditation for normally something like about 15 minutes. Sometimes I'll go into visualizing the things that I love and the things that I enjoy. And so during the course of the day, I'll just make sure to kind of reconnect with that stuff. Especially if something comes up that feels challenging. To just to reconnect and breathe. Breathing is just so key to just like breathe deep through whatever seems to be coming off and to be accepting of whatever it is that's coming up. That's really the basic of it for me, is just breathing and staying connected.

Kevin: That's great. Now you have a book, Raw Reform and you do consulting as well.
Why do not you tell us just a little bit about your book?

Angela:: Sure, yeah. I actually have four different e-books available for people now.

Kevin: Oh wow, cool.

Angela:: The first one was called How to Go Raw For Weight Loss. That was for people who were coming from a background of overweight, like I came from, how to do it. The next one was Revealing the Physical Changes and that's all about what starts to happen to us when we release all of this weight and we go through all the details and how to actually deal with what it is that we're experiencing. I also have a recipe book which is there on the website. And then the most recent one was The Juice Feaster's Handbook. So after doing that three-month intensive juice fever, I put together a handbook for other people to do it. Because there was so much that I wanted to know and understand when I was at the beginning. So there are my four different things. They're available as e-books or as printed booklet version.

Kevin: Got you.

Angela:: So people can get hold of those.

Kevin: Great. And tell me a little bit about your consultations.

Angela:: Yes, well I do consulting work with people, one on one, in phone or in person.
Recently I've been doing juice feasting retreats with people taking like a whole group of women through a juice past together.

Kevin: Oh wow. That is awesome. I want to thank you for sharing your wisdom, your experience. I think it's so important to learn through stories and to learn through success.

The Key to Juicy, Perfectly Cooked Meat? Let It Sit Out

There are a lot of weird food phobias out there (alliumphobia, anyone?) and yet a quick google search turns up no term for “fear of raw meat.” This is shocking to me, because most people completely freak out when I tell them they should let their meat come to room temperature before cooking. I have friends who practically put on hazmat suits before taking raw chicken out of the fridge. But I’m here to reassure all the raw meat-phobes out there that if you’re buying good- (or even decent-) quality meat and practicing food safety common sense, then letting a piece of protein sit out on the counter for a little while won’t kill you. (Or at least the likelihood is very very small. The CDC reported just 13 cases of trichinosis in the US in 2015.) In fact, taking the chill off your roasts, pork chops, and even fish fillets before cooking will produce juicier, more evenly cooked meat.

Seared Steak with Pan Sauce

When it comes to quick-searing a relatively thin cut of meat, like a thin steak, it doesn’t make a lot of difference if the center is cold. But for thick cuts (like a big pork chop) or animals you’re roasting whole (like a chicken or turkey), a little tempering—i.e., letting it come up to room temperature—makes a big difference. Here’s the basic logic: If you’re trying to cook the inside of a piece of meat to a particular internal temperature, like 135° for pork or 160° for poultry, the center will come up to temperature faster if it starts at a higher temperature. If a tempered turkey is roasting In a 325°-oven, the thickest part of the breast will hit 160° before the meat closer to the surface has had as great a chance to overcook. It means more even cooking all the way through, and less time for the meat to lose moisture while cooking, making it juicier.

You don’t have to go crazy waiting for hours until the meat is absolutely 72° and taking the internal temperature before you start cooking. That would take a really long time. Just take whatever you’re cooking out of the fridge and let it start tempering in whatever time you have. If you’re searing, as for a pork chop, thoroughly pat the meat dry so you start to develop browning on the surface faster.

Keep calm, wash your hands, and everything is going to be just fine.

Let’s just be clear: We’re not saying you should leave your pork chops on the table overnight, or out in the sun for hours and hours. We always advocate for smart food safety practices when it comes to handling raw meat to prevent food-borne illness. This means washing your hands before and after handling and avoiding cross-contamination by using only cutting boards designated for raw meat. Don’t use tongs that have touched something raw to handle other ingredients without a thorough washing first. Get a good instant-read thermometer so you can make sure the meat is cooked to the right temperature. Then take a few deep breaths and don’t panic. Remember that no part of cooking should involve a hazmat suit.

So relax, take those pork chops out of the fridge, and cook without fear:

Why You Must Have Exercise and Diet to Get the Body You Want

If you want to live a healthy and long life, you will need to be mindful of two things: diet and fitness. Some people think they are one and the same thing, but they are very wrong. You can eat a healthy diet and still have very bad fitness habits. You can also be physically fit, and eat nothing but junk food.

You can lose your unwanted weight through diet alone. However, it is much more difficult to lose weight this way. You can also be physically fit and still have a few excess pounds on your body. After all we are what we eat. It is an old saying, but very true.

If you eat a diet high in fat and with few vegetables your body will not have the fuel it needs to burn your fat. If you do not give your body the tools it needs to build muscle (aka proper nutrition) it will not matter how much you work out.

As far as diet and fitness goes, you get the best results when you join the two together. Your fitness routine is meant to burn excess calories while your diet is meant to supply your body with the proper nutrients and energy it needs to build muscle.

Now I do not know about you, but I would much rather my body weight be made up of muscle than fat. Do not forget you can not build muscle through dieting alone. If you wish to get physically fit and look your best you will have to get some exercise. Probably not what you wanted to hear, but true nonetheless.

You should be aware that as you are building you will also be shedding inches of fat without it showing on your scale. You will know this is happening when you get on the scale without seeing a difference in body weight but your waistband is looser. A very good feeling indeed.

In other words, do not measure you progress just by the bathroom scale. Take your waist measurement when you are first starting on your diet and fitness program. This way, if you do not see any difference on the scale, you can measure your waist and see how many inches you have lost. Measure your success by how you feel after climbing a flight of stairs not by how many pounds fall of the scale this week.

If you include fitness into your diet program you will also help your body to burn off the extra calories you might have ate during the day. This way, if you want to cheat a little on your diet, you can make up for it by working off the extra calories by exercising that night. You should not cheat on your diet every day but it is okay once in a while.

When you combine diet and fitness, you can create incredible weight loss results if you take them both seriously. Just remember that neither one works as well alone and neither will work unless you are willing to do the work. If you want to achieve the best results possible, you will have to make this a priority in your life.

Tips for safely cooking a steamed oyster

Who doesn’t love a good oyster roast?

We are about halfway through the season, which means that there are a ton of roasts to attend.

Most of the oysters served at these roasts are grown and harvested from local waters, but some are imported from neighboring states such a Florida and Louisiana.

No matter where or how you decide to eat your oysters, it is important to remember that eating raw or undercooked shellfish can open you up to the risk of infection, according to the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control.

One of the infections that you can get from eating raw or undercooked oysters is caused by a bacteria known as Vibrio.

Vibriosis causes roughly 800,000 illnesses and 100 deaths in the U.S. every year.

Oysters that contain harmful bacteria don’t look, smell or taste different than any other oysters and, according to the CDC, the only way to kill the bacteria is by cooking them properly.

“I’ve been doing this all my life and we’ve never had a case of anyone dying from eating an oyster,” Larry Toomer, owner of the Bluffton Oyster Co., said. “We know where our oysters came from because we harvest them, refrigerate them ourselves and then cook them shortly after.”

Toomer says that there is always a risk when consuming any raw food, but the oysters that are harvested off the coast of the Lowcountry typically don’t have bacteria due cleansing nature of the tidal waters they grow in.

The CDC recommends cooking oysters until they open, whether by boiling or steaming, and then continue to cook them for an additional few minutes depending on the method of cooking.

They also recommend disposing of any oysters that have opened before being cooked, as this is typically a sign that the oyster has died.

“Something will always be somebody’s last meal,” Toomer says. “If you’re immune system is not up to snuff you shouldn’t eat anything raw, whether that is an oyster, or burger or any other type of meat, but something is going to set you off if you’re already sick. But other than that, we shouldn’t worry too much.”

Diet of Raw Food & Benefits of Raw Food

Raw food diet- This particular diet is lifestyle that supports eating only living and raw fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and seaweeds. Any food item is heated or cooked above 116 degrees F. As this food is raw or cooked on very low temperature this it provides major improvements in health.

Benefits of raw food -Proponents of the raw food diet believe it has numerous health benefits and it includes increased energy, improved skin appearance, better digestion, weight loss and reduced risk of heart disease. It is low in sodium and high in potassium, magnesium, floated, fiber and health-promoting plant chemicals called photoochemical.

The reasons are not known, but the experience is unmistakable. Weight normalizes, which generally means a reduction in fat. At the same time, a person feels extremely energized. It's as if energy would rather be burned up than converted to fat.

Protein- This diet is abundant in protein. Cooked protein becomes a sticky mess that does not digest well at all. Raw plant foods provide all the protein we need, in the right form for easy assimilation.

Side effects- Raw foods certainly are not safer than cooked food but some claim. Most commercial chicken and a good deal of beef and pork, sadly, are loaded with bacteria and parasites. Cooking kills this, except the meat is rancid. Major and surprising sources of food-borne illness, however, are raw sprouts, green onions and lettuce. These must be washed thoroughly before consumption. Raw milk is dangerous and mostly illegal to buy. Raw (sprouted) kidney beans and rhubarb are poisonous.

This may include occasional headaches, nausea sensations and mild depression. Many doctors say that these symptoms are short-lived. If these symptoms persist, you should seek the help of someone who is experienced with detoxification symptoms.

How to Introduce the Raw Diet to Children- In recent years there have been lots of buzz around the medical community regarding the benefits of raw food. People have begun raw food diets and are seeing and feeling the benefits and how it's affecting their bodies. With this comes the realization that by incorporating raw foods into the diets of their children, they can begin to enjoy the benefits at a very early age. Children can be very picky eaters though and it can be a struggle to get them to eat anything new. When a young child is accredited to eating cooked foods, the difference in taste and texture with raw food can take some time for adaptation.

Effect of Hormones on Diet Intake-Sports

Testosterone

Testosterone is a steroid hormone secreted from the Leydig cells of the testes that has both anabolic and anticatabolic effects upon muscle tissue. Dietary nutrients, in particular fat, have been shown to affect testosterone. Individuals consuming a diet containing about 20% fat compared with a diet containing 40% fat have significantly lower concentrations of testosterone.

Also, replacing dietary carbohydrate with protein has been shown to decrease testosterone concentrations. Men consuming a vegetarian or meatless diet have lower circulating concentrations of testosterone compared with men consuming a mixed Western or a high-meat diet.

These studies indicate that the distribution of macronutrients has a significant impact on testosterone concentrations. The specific type or quality of macronutrient may also affect testosterone independent of a change in diet composition. Volek et al. reported significant positive correlations between dietary fat, specifically assessed and monounsaturated fatty acids, and resting testosterone concentrations in a group of young resistance-trained men. Raben et al. reported a significant decrease in resting testosterone concentrations and an attenuation in the exercise instituted increase in testosterone in male endurance athletes who switched from a meat-rich diet to a lacto-ovo vegetarian diet. The diets contained equal percentages of calories derived from protein, carbohydrates, and fat; However, the source of protein in the vegetarian diet was derived mainly from vegetable sources (83%), where the mixed diet contained significantly less vegetable protein (35%).

The exact mechanism linking nutrition to testosterone is unknown. Increasing anabolic hormone concentrations at rest, after a meal, or after exercise may enhance adaptations to resistance training. Manipulation of the distribution of carbohydrates and fat in the diet may alter the hormonal environment (eg, habitual consumption of a fatty diet has been shown to elevate fast testosterone and growth hormone concentrations). Thus, macronutrient manipulation should be considered a potential strategy to enhance the adaptations to exercise training programs. However, until further research is performed that documents specific training outcome marks in athletes under a variety of dietary regimens, generalizations should be made with caution.

Practically no information exists regarding the practical application of increasing circulating anabolic hormones on muscle size and strength; the potential differential effects in different populations (eg, men vs. women, young vs. old, trained vs. sedentary), the interaction of different hormone responses; the effects at the target tissue (eg, potential down-regulation of receptors); and the impact of "nutrient cycling" (eg, consuming a carbohydrate-rich diet followed by a fat-rich diet) .Considering the intense complexity in which the endocrine system operates in the regulation of cellular function and the diverse mechanisms that control homeostasis, the optimal diet strategy to The total daily energy take in this scenario then becomes 2015 kcal (524 / 0.26). In this instance, carbohydrates will combine 50% of the total (l008 kcal, 252 g), and fat, 24% (484 kcal, 54 g). In TABLE, a sample diet, with a goal of physique improvement and weight maintenance, is provided for this individual.

Note that the diet regimen outlined in contains five meals per day. This was included as a possible means to stimulate metabolic rate increments via an increased thermic effect of food consumption. It is recommended that consuming multiple daily meals should be a method used regardless of physique modification goals. In this way, potential improvements in the efficiency of the body's metabolic processes may ensue. It can not be stressed enough that the information provided and are recommendations based on limited research and the authors' discretion. Individual tinkering of the daily caloric total is likely for the achievement of desired goals. For example, rapid weight loss is a sign that caloric intake is deficient, and consequent losses in weight are more likely the result of water and lean tissue losses than fat. In this case, a slight increase in daily calories is necessary, as weight loss (and gain) should be a consistent, gradual process. Similarly, frequent (rough every 2 weeks) reassessments of body weight and composition should be performed, and appropriate dietary modifications should be implemented based on these findings.

Insulin

Insulin is a peptide hormone secreted by the pancreas, which plays a critical role in the regulation of blood glucose levels and stimulation of amino acid uptake for incorporation into skeletal muscle proteins. Carbohydrate ingestion leads to an increase in blood glucose and a similarly increase increase in insulin concentrations. A meal rich in fat results in lower insulin responses compared with meals rich in either carbohydrate or protein. Also, there is a decrease in resting glucose and insulin concentrations in response to 3 to 4 days of a low-carbohydrate diet high in fat and carbohydrates in carbohydrates. Three weeks of a low-carbohydrate diet may significantly lower resting insulin but not glucose concentrations in healthy men. Although insulin stimulates protein synthesis, maximizing insulin concentrations may not be advantageous because of the potent antilipolytic (Le., Blocks mobilization of fat from storage) and lipogenic (Le., Promoters storage of fat) effects of insulin.

WA couple founds raw dog food business

SPOKANE, Wash. – A local couple founded a small raw dog food business after their dogs reaped the benefits of a new diet.

Lisa Rees buys her dogs’ raw food from a distributor, and she and her husband started Inland Empire Raw to sell to other dog owners.

The meat contains uncooked beef mixed with ground bone and tripe. It may not sound appetizing to the human consumer but Rees’ dogs inhale it.

“It’s what they’re programed to eat. It’s what they’ve eaten for thousands of years,” Rees said. “It’s the way they ate before they were domesticated, which is what drew us to it. It’s natural. It’s what they’re supposed to eat.”

Rees said the switch in diet led to a handful of benefits for her dogs, including leaner physiques, shinier coats and decreased shedding.

There are several commercial grade freezers full of raw food in Rees’ garage and she drives around the Inland Northwest several times a week to deliver to her customers.

Customer Brianna Heid was initially skeptical about raw feeding but grew curious after seeing a Facebook advertisement.

“We thought, ‘We could try it out. What’s the worst that could happen – he doesn’t like it or something?’” Heid said.

Heid’s dog happily devoured the meal.

“He was just so into it. It was neat to see,” Heid said. “He adapted to it very well and has been gaining weight perfectly. He’s on track with what he should be, and his coat is perfect. Everything is perfect about him now.”

Heid said raw food not be the best choice for every dog and anyone who is interested should do their research before making the decision.

Veterinarian Colette Bergam said she takes a more natural stance unlike many others in her industry. She is a member of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association.

Bergam’s pets love raw food.

“I actually feed my dogs some limited raw, and I have two older dogs both 15 and 14 that have had raw for a number of years. My cats absolutely love raw food,” she said.

Rees said most veterinarians have offered a neutral response while some have warned against raw feeding. She agreed with Heid that raw food may not be the best choice for every dog but is a convert based on the improvement she has seen in her dogs.

On the other hand, Greg Benoit, a veterinarian at SouthCare Animal Medical Center, prefers a more traditional diet for his pets.

“We don’t advocate for it, so we basically follow the American Veterinary Medical Association, the American Animal Hospital Association guidelines, and we prefer to feed away from raw foods because of the control and the potential for transmission of organisms that could be harmful to people,” Benoit said.

Owners who feed their animals raw food need to make sure they are following a balanced diet, Benoit said. He said owners should also be concerned about food safety when handling raw meat and the possibility of pets transferring diseases like salmonella, listeria and E. coli.

The Ceneter for Disease Control and Prevention does not recommend feeding pets raw food.

Bergam, however, said she has never contracted an illness from her pets in the 13 years she has been feeding them raw food.

“You have to be careful and preparing raw field, making sure that you’re not cross contaminating your meal with your dog’s meal, I know a lot of people who have separate little cutting boards specifically for their pets, versus their own food,” she said. “I think if you were careful and abide by those and wash your hands and washing your utensils or keeping them separate, you probably shouldn’t have a problem. I’ve never had a problem doing that myself.”

Those who are interested in learning more about raw feeding can visit Inland Empire Raw on its website or Facebook page.
