My Experience With Raw Meat and Raw Fish Diet

– This article was renewed and edited on May 29, 2018 –


The mainly raw meat and raw fish zero carb diet (MFZC) is the last diet I tested. I have been testing and using it from April 2016 to the present time. Before MFZC, I tested: the raw meat/fish and fruits diet, raw meat/fish, fruits and green vegetable juices diet, raw vegan diet, and some other diets. I have tested these diets for at least one year each except the raw vegan diet. The raw vegan diet had a bad influence on my health, and I stopped it in half year.




The MFZC diet may have a period of adaptation like other ZC diets. My adaptation lasted 3-4 months. I had night muscle cramps, brain fog, and diarrhea that lasted about two months (up to 4-6 times a day in the beginning).


I have stopped diarrhea by drinking a glass of cranberry juice daily during the two days (one-quarter glass of frozen cranberry and three-quarters with water – all blended together in a powerful blender). The diarrhea stopped completely but returned after about a week for a few days. The diarrhea was gone without using the cranberry juice again, and I didn’t have it for a very long time.


Changes Made by Using the MFZC Diet


After the adaptation, my overall health has been improving gradually. I have started to have mostly a good mood, feeling more alive, better sleep, good lightness in the body. My memory stopped diminishing and improved, increasing the clearness of my mind.


My mind became more organized, and my mental and physical reactions became faster. I don’t have any headaches or diseases anymore! For long periods of time, I can be around people who have a cold or flu and yet stay healthy and not contaminated.


My back pain (lasting a few days), which I usually had after lifting something very heavy, has stopped appearing after half a year of the diet.


With the MFZC diet, your muscles may start to grow and adjust according to your genetically predisposed type of body, even if you are not active or do not exercise (If you exercise, the shape of your body can change according to your chosen plan).


My joints don’t have any pain anymore, and they have become more flexible without any exercise. Small red spots and pimples on my body, face, and shingles (usually, I often had a few small ones) have disappeared. My skin became better and stopped to produce new related to aging brown (liver) spots on the body and new small keratomas on my head (part of them disappeared later).


On my face, I had a big thick flat grey wart. After about a year of being on the MFZC diet, the wart started to crack and fell off. Small white lipomas under the lower eyelids have disappeared.


The process of balding on my head has stopped, and my hair stopped greying. The feeling of permanent thirst, frequent visits to the washroom, hot feeling inside the body after eating sweet fruits – all went away. My past frequent constipation and diarrheas do not appear anymore, and I have normal bowel movements mostly every day.


My gums and remaining teeth became clean, healthy, and strong. I brush my teeth only with water and use dental floss. My breath is always fresh. I do not know how long I will have my great healthy condition, but I may compare it with some conditions of wild animals.


In the wild, if animals eat genetically proper raw food for them, they age significantly less visible than people do. The animals keep their health, energy, and all kinds of activity until they die from natural reasons.


Condition of Teeth


A long time ago, I had many teeth removed with treated root canals (dead teeth). All amalgam fillings have been removed and changed to cement fillings. Actually, keeping these dentist’s “treatments” slowly poison and harm you. You may find lots of information about it on the Internet.


What Kind of Meat and Fish Were Used


While mostly on the MFZC diet, I use and test the Costco fatty beef and frozen wild salmon. The beef is mainly whole strip sirloin (5-7 kg pieces). I weigh and cut it into daily portions. 2-3 of the portions I put in the fridge and eat in the first days. Leftovers are kept in the freezer for later use.


I eat two times a day – one-third of the daily portion in the morning and two-thirds in the evening (if the portion is frozen, I put it in the fridge in the evening for the next day). For the evening portion, I return to the fridge until evening. The wild salmon I usually eat 2-3 times a week in the morning.


Distilled Water


I use pure distilled water. The water I make is in a 4-liter home distiller. I drink 2-3 liters a day and have been drinking distilled water since 2007 (I changed my drinking water to distilled water gradually over a few months). Many people living in dry areas or in the North drink water that is equal to distilled water (rainwater or water made from melted snow).


They don’t have any specific health problems related to water. People living in other areas with water having high levels of mineralization often have more hardened blood vessels and may have related health problems. 


Advantages of Raw Food


Why is the raw MFZC diet better than the cooked ZC diets? Raw food breaks itself easily, has the ability of autolysis, and digests faster. Actually, genetically we aren’t designed for cooked food, and many years of evolution did not adapt us to cooked food completely. 


If you are afraid of parasite contamination, you may eat defrosted meat and fish (naturally, parasites prefer to stay and live inside people who eat cooked and processed food). 


Some Simple Tests On The MFZC Diet


After using the raw MFZC diet for about one year, sensitivity to different food products increased. It becomes easier to determine more exactly what is good or bad for your body and brain. Actually, the body and brain are the most excellent testing devices if they are not suppressed and tricked by eating the wrong food.


You may use them instead of many medical tests. I have tested some products in addition to the MFZC diet, and every used food product was tested separately. The results of some tests can be different for other people due to their genetics, quality, and kinds of meat or fish.


But methods to determine the quality of every product and what products are good or bad for you stay the same and can be used by everybody.


Test on Butter


This test was during April 2018. I have added organic butter to the MFZC diet. After about two weeks, I started to have some changes. The noticeable changes were: increasing feelings of thirst and dryness in the mouth, increasing feelings of tiredness, and decreasing clearness of mind.


Genetically we aren’t designed to consume milk and dairy products after about 1-5 years of breastfeeding. Most people continue to use milk and dairy products all their life and don’t pay attention to some of the negative side effects. Conclusion: it’s better not to eat butter.


Test on Eggs


This test was in February 2018. I have added organic eggs to the MFZC diet. After about 1-2 weeks, I started to have some changes. The noticeable changes were: more dry skin on the soles and lips and decreasing clearness of the mind.


Eggs have some powerful enzymes and hormones that initiate and start the process of the chicken’s growing. What kind of processes can the eggs initiate and start inside our bodies, especially in old age? We still don’t know. Also, eggs are a seasonal food, and genetically we aren’t designed to consume them at least all year. Conclusion: in general, it’s better to not eat eggs.


Testing the Regulation of the Body Weight on the MFZC Diet


The test was during the last three months of 2017. I tested a case to regulate my weight (I’m quite slim). I increased my daily portion of meat to 1200g (400g morning and 800g evening portions). In a few months, my weight was significantly increased.


My body started to look more fat than slim. I definitely didn’t like it and decreased the amount of meat gradually to 600g (200g morning and 400g evening portions). My weight has returned to my normal (slim). I didn’t test the quantity of the fish. Also, I didn’t test different fat/protein ratios but always bought more fatty pieces of beef.


The noticeable changes when I was on the 1200g portion were: increasing body weight, decreasing the speed of physical and mental reactions, increasing the desire to sleep after eating, and a lazy condition during the day. Conclusion: it’s quite easy to regulate weight on the MFZC diet. It’s better not to overeat even if you are on a very healthy diet.


Test on the Amount of Fish on MFZC Diet.


This test was during September 2017. I tested eating fish every morning instead of meat. After about one week, I started to have some changes. The noticeable changes were: feeling more hungry (in spite of eating quite big portions of the fish) all day before the evening meat meal, decreasing the clearness of mind.


Conclusion: big amounts of fish (maybe the influence of mercury?) are not good on the MFZC diet. A small amount of fish (moderate portions of fish 2-3 times a week) gives some additional nutrients and microelements, making the diet more stable and able to satisfy better.


Test on Salt


The Himalayan salt was tested for two weeks on August 2017. I have added 2-4 g salt to my evening portion of meat. The noticeable changes were: a feeling of heaviness in the body and head, feeling of kidneys (usually, you don’t feel your inner organs if they are healthy), increased thirst, and light brain fog. Conclusion: it’s better not to use salt.


Testing the Size of Meat Pieces for Eating


The test was during the spring of 2017. It was tested with ground beef, which I am used to eating before I did the test, the meat that was cut into half-inch pieces (I started to eat this meat after the test). I made two piles of meat – one was from ground meat, and the other was from cut meat.


On the top of the piles, I made cavities and poured some water into them. In the cut meat pile, all the water was soaked in immediately. In the ground meat pile, the soaking took up to 40 sec. The ground meat behaves as a piece of clay. In the stomach, ground meat can delay digestion. In it, the meat and fat particles stick together into a big piece and interrupt the fast soaking of the stomach acid.


After this test, I used only cut meat. Usually, I cut meat and its fat into half-inch pieces and eat the fat first. If some pieces are difficult to chew, just swallow them. They digest very well, and meat and fat don’t need to be chewed for a long time.


The noticeable changes were: a feeling of heaviness in the stomach after eating becomes much lighter, meat digests faster, bowel movements are more regular, and the desire to sleep after eating is less.


Conclusion: it’s better not to eat ground meat. It’s interesting that the same conclusion had Dr. H. L. Newbold and his patients. He had other and opposite explanations about the harmful influence of cooked ground meat (that it digests faster). It’s possible to check precisely which explanation is more right, but is it worth doing if the conclusion is the same?


Testing the Necessity of Fish in the MFZC Diet


The test was during the winter months of 2017. I tested the MFZC diet without the fish. For about a month, I didn’t feel any difference if compared with the full MFZC diet. Later I started to have some changes. The noticeable changes were: craving to eat other products, feeling that something is missing, feeling not satisfied, and decreasing the good lightness in the body. Conclusion: It’s better to keep fish in the MFZC diet.
