I have seen horse eating meat before.
Because it all becomes glucose in the blood system after being processed by the digestive tract.
Bovines and equines have a digestive tract maximized for processing grains and grasses.
Humans are omnivores who have a digestive tract that will take nourishment from many different types of food but not as well with a tiven type compared with species with more specialized digestive tracts.

Why do I feel so mentally clear in my fast? Will keto give the same effect?
ive always been interested in doing this. that show naked and afraid makes me want to try at least a 21 day fast to see if i could make it. if you are broke look into getting SNAP benefits.
you are in keto on a fast. i tried a keto diet with 1800 cals daily and had similar effects.
I thought about this while watching those shows as well like knowing what I know about fasting and ketosis, in a survival scenario it would be best to save up a decent sized meal instead of nibbling as soon as you find food. Best case scenario would be if you found yourself in a beach because you can just take nightly baths in the seawater and that should be good enough to absorb electrolytes (better than nothing)

I don't really live in the US, though so I can't get food stamps.

No it wasn't lol. For the last fucking time, the low lifespan average was due to high child mortality. If you made it your 20s you had a pretty good chance of making it to your 60s.

Average lifespan was drawn down by childhood mortality, dumbo.

This indeed. My grandfather is 71 and as fit as at least a 35-45 year old, he used to do running every morning for years (until his heart got worse).

Mine was not that bad but similar, and had a lil in the chest too. Went to derm and got Isotretinoin (the same as Accutane). One month in and I'm so glad I started.
I have not done sterioids and have had acne for almost 10 years now. already tried everything on the internet. useless pills from the useless derms won't do anything either.

The short pdf suggests, in my opinion, “correct” sleeping postures. I originally found it when I was attempting to mimic the sleeping postures of more primitive pirate species. Please use it if it will be any help.

It’s not the lifting methods he uses or any special diet that makes him a beast, it’s just one thing my friend do you know what that is? Well let me give you a hint.

went to the old college gym today, biggest guy there. kids these days are completely lost, had to tell some frat boy to keep his feet on the bench or it doesn’t count. Pressed his max for a few reps without even warming up to show him the ropes. Also to let the boy know who’s boss. LOL

What routine or diet can I follow to get a jaw like this?

Lol underated
Chew gum all day every day
last I checked your masticator muscles are skeletal muscles, which means they respond to physical stimulus.
of course chewing normal gum that isn't hard won't do shit for your jaw, it'd be kind of like curling 2.5lb dumbbells for sets of 150. you needs to be doing something that actually taxes the muscle to coax it to grow more to handle the load.

Not native to Europe, and the wild varieties are barely edible anyway, full of toxic alkaloids and tiny. Cooking would be absolutely required, longer than the modern version, and the return from a single tuber would not justify the energy expenditure to find and gather them
wild carrots are tiny as fuck, barely worth the effort
its a condiment, not a food. Try getting enough calories from it to matter, and you WILL puke your guts out, and ruin your stomach lining
Again, a modern variation on a barely edible wild ancestor, and even today there's no way to eat a significant percentage of daily calories from them without becoming ill.

You're making the mistake of assuming modern varieties of plants were available to our ancestors. They were not. In fact, most of them weren't around even a hundred years ago in the same form as today. Plants of yesteryear were smaller, less nutritious, and harder to digest, requiring more processing. You said surviving strictly by foraging would be extremely difficult in a northern climate. This a false statement, it would be impossible. Not a chance. You'd need to supplement with hunting, and if you can catch game, you don't bother looking for plants to eat, other than the occasional fruit or acorn in the late summer or autumn. (interestingly, wild acorns are far more nutritious than wild apples, for example, and often require little to no processing to be edible) Certainly not tubers or leafy greens, other than possibly as medicine or spices. Those things were never part of our diet until very recently.

We developed agriculture because we had no choice after climate change and overhunting killed off our natural food supply. I'm glad we did, as it allowed us to survive. But our natural diet is animal flesh, preferably fatty ruminant meat and organs.
It would be way more time and labor intensive to try to survive on meat. Take potatoes, onion, and carrots again for an example. You plant them in the ground. In 6 months you dig them up, and store them in a dark place where they will keep for a long time. Then you cook them and eat them whenever you want. A single man could easily grow and harvest enough vegetabkes to keep a large family alive.

Compare that to trying to feed a family with meat. You'd either need to raise and harvest substantial crops to feed livestock over the winter or you could hunt. Growing vegetables to feed to animals is more work than just growing vegetables for yourself.

If you subsist from hunting you'd need to hunt pretty much year round, and would probably need to move around to follow the herds or whatever. Exactly the opposite of what you would need to do growing a garden.

Plus whenever you do kill an animal you need to clean, butcher, process, and cure the meat so it doesn't rot.

Meat is way more work, way less efficient, and way less healthy
The recent death of H. Jay Dinshah, Founding President of the American Vegan Society, of an apparent heart attack at age 66, brings to light the reality that consuming a plant-based diet may not be all that is required to protect our arteries as years go by.
Healthy as fuck. Why is it that when adjusting for wealth level vegans have higher rates of both heart disease and dementia/alzheimer.
fucking lmao, now try that with non gmo crops, you'd starve to death in a year
You're talking about agriculture, not foraging. Agriculture absolutely is capable of feeding more people, and of more easily storing food for the winter. I would never argue that. In fact, I'm glad for the development of agriculture, as it was the impetus for us to develop civilisation.

But it is not the way we evolved to eat. We spent the vast majority of our evolutionary history as apex predators, following vast herds of megafauna ruminants across the European tundra. We don't even have to look far back into history for examples of that, this is exactly how the plains Amerindians lived, following the buffalo herds, and they were some of the healthiest people ever recorded in writing. We certainly didn't evolve growing gardens and cultivating crops. We learned how to do that because we had to, and its a good thing we did, because without it we would not have survived as a species. But given the choice, I choose to eat as close as possible to how people ate for at least 1.5 million years, and probably longer.

So you've defined stress, good. How is ketosis stressful and bad for the body? You are yet to show evidence for this.

I could make the argument that the constant spiking of insulin (which carbohydrates are really good at) is the stimulus that creates stress per definition. Furthermore, this stressor being overwhelming and unresolved leads to insulin resistance and eventual Type II diabetes. Then again I'm not going to make the claim carbohydrates lead to diabetes either because stress isn't necessarily a bad thing.
>stress is literally anything
okay, so by that studies definition sleep would also be stress?
>How is ketosis stressful and bad for the body?
You didn't read my last post.
>constant spiking of insulin (which carbohydrates are really good at) is the stimulus that creates stress per definition
Prove it.

Possibly, yes. Anything that increases any stress hormone is damaging to the body.
