Eating Raw liver/heart. sv3rige on youtube

Hey, just thought I would share this with you guys. This guy sv3rige on youtube has some very interesting ideas about human physiology and diet. He has been eating a pure raw meat diet for a couple years now, after having previously been a vegan and gone through some pretty bad phases. He has videos of himself eating all kinds of raw meat including raw chicken. He eats some carbs during the summer but generally stays zero carb in the winter as far as I know, a lot of things we talk about in this community he has implemented. He does drink raw milk and eat butter as well.

I started eating raw organ meats a few weeks ago, of course the quality of these meats is very high(Grass fed,organic, etc) and I actually notice that I feel a lot better than I did eating these things cooked, and surprisingly, the organ meats taste better raw than they do cooked in my opinion(liver has a sweet taste to it!).

He ran in to the same issue as many of the people on here as well, in that putting on weight is very difficult without any carbs, so he has increased his calorie intake in the hopes he will put some weight on, as well as adding some fruit to his diet.

There are all sort of weird people on youtube and it's a good idea not to imitate any one of them without doing some research into the subject. For instance, a quick search on SOTT gives these entries:

Sorry, vegans: Eating meat and cooking food is how humans got their big brains -- Sott.net
Cavemen Knew It: Cooked Meat Offers More Energy -- Sott.net
Did our early ancestors start cooking to make carrion safe to eat? -- Sott.net

And many things have been said in the forum about the benefits of cooking meat as a source of nourishment.

I understand that he is not infallible and some of the stuff he says I disagree with, but based off my experience I have now after a few weeks of eating raw organ meats, I feel way better eating it raw, and it's to the point where all i'm craving are raw organ meats.

He does back up what he says with sources and studies much in the same way as we would do here. I haven't done enough reading to form a major opinion on it though.

I am also seeing a discrepancy in those articles vs what we have been told by the C's. They seem to be following the "evolved from apes" theory and attribute cooking meat as the source of increased cognitive function etc, 1.9 million years ago. For example :

"Early humans were eating raw meat as early as 2.5 million years ago but they underwent a sudden change about 1.9 million years ago. Their bodies became larger, the size and complexity of the brain increased, and adaptations for long-distance running appeared."

Everything I have learned from the transcripts tells me that this is not the case at all, that humans have not been here this long, and many of us, Caucasians especially, have DNA from a different planet altogether(Kantek). Also we have been told that there were civilizations more advanced than ours in the past, and I think there is a tendency with modern scientists to kind of dumb down early humans because it falls in line with a linear Darwinist evolutionary theory. I am not sure how much truth can be pulled from something like that.

I didn't find sv3rige weird personally, certainly not your typical human being, but I think he is a truth seeker like many of us, with his own faults and distortions.

Another thing to note is that there are all kinds of raw meat dishes around the world in different cultures, some of which that have been practiced for a very long time. I am going to be exploring these things more and perhaps testing a raw meat keto diet vs the standard keto diet I have been on for a few years now.

Another thing I have been looking in to is the nutrients killed off when cooking meat and from what I am reading the loss of nutrients in some cases(depending on how you cook the meat) is quite significant:

When you're wandering in the woods and surviving like Bear Grills:-), then you need more nutrients, or if you were vegan like that guy. I don't know, I don't have such needs

I am familiar with the guy via some of the groups I am part of on facebook. I am not sure what to make of it, since there may also be some potentially detrimental consequences of eating a heavy-raw meats diet, such as parasites etc.

However, that said, I do think that meat should be cooked lightly. Overall, there are people who seem to do great on this diet, and others who seem to crash and burn. It is a difficult one to make any solid statements on, since context is always the most important factor.

It's true that cooking results in loss of nutrients but is it really so important to maximise their intake in one sitting? You could just eat more to get the same amount ;-) Maybe it's just me but somehow I find the idea of eating raw meat completely off putting.

As for sv3rige, I came across his videos before and I can't say I was particularly convinced. But that may just be me, I can't even handle rare stake.

Also, excuse the character assassination but the video where he asked for donations becuase he dumped his very rich girlfriend whose parents gave him money, for a poor one who wouldn't provide for him, was a bit of a put off. I can't say raw meat has had any positive impact on his problem solving abilities. Clearly getting a job didn't occur to him ;-)

I did see this video, and share similar opinions about it, but I will try to separate that from the actual content he provides. I am sure he will be learning a lesson or two in personal responsibility during this whole ordeal has has gotten himself in to.

I was quite surprised with how good raw liver tasted in comparison to it being cooked, it has a very sweet taste to it, and for some reason I have this primal drive in me to want to consume raw meat, I remember even being young and thinking this to myself.

Getting the most for my money is also an attractive concept, the meat I buy is very expensive and if I can maximize what i'm getting out of it nutrient wise that would be a plus.

Certainly not here to convince anybody to try it, but did want to share it. If I get sick it will be a lesson learned, but so far I am seeing nothing but good things.

Weontv, just make sure to get your serum vitamin A checked every 3-4 weeks if you are eating raw liver. You could overload quite easily on that, so you should keep track of those levels just to be on the safe side

If you're attracted to the idea of eating raw meat / organs then maybe your body is telling you what it needs? Myself on the other hand, even the thought of putting raw liver in my mouth makes me cringe with disgust.

Like Keyhole said:

You're already noticing benefits of this diet already so chances are you're someone who will do well on it. Myself, I'd probably starve before I could bring myself to put raw liver in my mouth. ;-)

I will make sure to do that, I am alternating liver/heart/kidney over 3 days, then repeat, all raw, so we will see what happens. Thanks for the input, appreciate it.

haha, I will admit that the first time was a littttle bit nauseating, I was expecting it to taste a lot worse than it does, I honestly prefer it raw over cooked. The texture is very slimey and almost crunchy, and of course a lot of blood, just to give you an idea :lol:

Hello, I'm very interested in trying raw liver, but I'm having a hard time finding information on wether to eat liver that is brought in fresh or previously frozen. Contrary to what some websites say about freezing the liver to kill the bacteria (making it safe to eat?), would it be better to eat it fresh to get the health benefit of said bacteria? Also, could only find 1 butcher so far who will sell the liver fresh, but only once eery 2 weeks, every else sells frozen liver. Should this be a concern?
