    For the past year The Liver King has been calling on all of us to eat raw meats to get SWOL. I don’t know about you, Loyal Theorist, but that does NOT sound appetizing. . . However, his diet DID intrigue me. Even though The Liver King Confession video exposed some… QUESTIONABLE practices, I still had to know if a raw meat diet could ACTUALLY work?! There’s only one way to find out, so let’s find out the RAW truth.

    I was surprised that MatPat didn't go into the possibilities of mineral overdoses that can come from bone marrow / liver consumption... a bit is healthy, but it's possible to literally poison yourself with iron. "All things in moderation."

      If you take "staying true to yourself" to mean "never changing." Then that is actually a very bad idea. Sometimes change is inevitable, because of Entropy. Sometimes, change is desirable, because the way you started out was just bad. We all start out as babies. Babies can't speak, read, write, or make internet videos.

    • Zen Kim

      Short answer: constipation ... like, majorly bad constipation, plus some bonus health issues.
      Long answer:
      A crucial benefit of a veggie-rich dietary lifestyle is that vegetables provide more than just the obvious "vitamins & minerals" we need, they also give us *dietary fiber* -- the "prebiotics" that our intestinal bacteria (the "good bugs" that inhabit our gut) feed on to thrive & proliferate, which translates to a healthier, more effective digestive system. Feeding your "good bugs" means that your gut bacteria become better @ breaking down your consumed meals, releasing more of the nutrients otherwise locked away in foods (this is why manure is & has been used as a form of fertilizer -- much of the nutrients in consumed food never get absorbed, so they remain in the resulting fecal matter) plus the fiber itself helps "push things along" thru your intestinal tract.
      Meat & other animal products (eggs, cheeses & other dairy products, fish & seafood) on the other hand ... provide absolutely NO dietary fiber. Therefore, a typically meat-rich dietary lifestyle (far too common in the US & many other 1st World countries now) ends up hobbling the digestive system, robbing it of the invaluable dietary fiber it needs to do its job properly. If you're not eating a diet rich in veggies, chances R that you're suffering the effects of @ least mild constipation & overall lower health.
      --But wait! There's more....
      A little more study of human physiology gives us clues as to what the ideal human diet truly is. Get an illustrated book on human anatomy & take a look @ the digestive system. Notice the long, twisty intestines? That's the mark of a true herbivore: carnivores have much shorter intestinal tracts to handle the meat-heavy diets they evolved for, whereas plant-based diets require much more lengthy intestinal systems to properly digest consumed foods. Also, true predators & natural meat-eaters produce a digestive enzyme to break down animal flesh. By contrast, humans produce *no* such enzyme! (This is why the manufacturers of antacids & stomach-relief products make bank off of meat-eating consumers but next to nothing off of the vegan/vegetarian community.)
      The irony is that, especially in light of the recent trend of food prices, it makes much more sense to cut down as much as possible on the meats, eggs & cheeses & instead expand our consumption of vegetables & other plant-based foods -- including beans, nuts & seeds, which R by far a healthier source of protein, iron & dietary fats (flaxseed & flaxseed oil R both good sources of Omega-3 fatty acids, for example). Not only will your gut thank U & reward U for it, your wallet will reap the benefits as well!
      Bonus fact: statistically, vegans, vegetarian purists (no animal products) & other likeminded people (such as strict Zen Buddhists) have historically enjoyed lower rates of obesity, high cholesterol, heart disease, stroke & cancer than the societal norm. Going all-vegetarian is thus more than a dietary fad or a cost-cutting measure ... it's an investment in your future health & life expectancy.

      I didn't like him from the moment I found out he lied about his steroid use. Like, that immediately disqualifies you as any kind of influencer, lying to your followers to make a few quick dollars.

      As soon as I saw his muscles I knew he was on steroids. You can't naturally get those kinds of muscles without being on roids. Anyone that says otherwise is flat out lying. There is a limit to the growth of muscle mass and if he wasn't on roids he would loose all of that Ina couple of weeks.

    In Germany, organs and raw meat (Mett) are still quite popular, heck, a large portion of the rural population eats Mett on an (almost) daily basis. And many of us were quite bummed out when it became increasingly harder to buy organ meat, especially brains! A German tradition, Grünkohl (kale) with Bregenwurst (brain sausage) literally DEPENDS on eating organs, and basically every Northern German waits the whole year for the first frost to arrive so they can start eating that!

      @zeebo30 you mean Leptin and Ghrelin, the hunger hormones, leptin makes you satisfied, ghrelin makes you hungry. Lifestyle factors including lack of sleep, fasting, inconsistent eating and overall food intake throughout the day increase ghrelin. Ghrelin will decrease and leptin will increase when you are satisfied and full. You can absolutely become satisfied eating enough sugary foods. I understand what you’re trying to say, but increase in Ghrelin does not outweigh the satiety of the food itself meaning there is a net positive satiating effect. If sugar/sugary foods only made you hungry/hungrier/increased appetite, then you could keep eating forever which is not the case, you will eventually become full and satisfied. This is even seen in the lab with pure table sugar. So no, my guy, I’m not wrong. And look, by saying people are wrong in the comment section, it provides a little shock value so people actually read the comment and think about things from a different perspective, it’s not a personal attack.

      @zeebo30 sugar does not increase appetite, it’s just not satiating. It’s hard to become full on sugar because sugary foods taste so good. Proteins, fiber rich foods and fats are much more satiating. So yes, it is in fact wrong.

    Eating fried chicken liver with baked apples is still a thing in Europe, especially Central/Eastern one.

    I love liver! I've eaten it since the first month of my life, because I have a severe iron deficiency. My mom would take liver mush and mix it with condensed milk to use as my formula, then the straight liver mush was my baby food when I was off the bottle. It is considered a superfood because of its nutritional value. But as you said, COOKED! I like breaded and deep fried chicken liver best!

If you take a package of chicken hearts and gizzards and boil them or even better pressure cook them then lightly bread and fry they can be some of the best tasting things you'll every eat. Combined with how they are usually extremely cheap because otherwise they are thrown out at the store it can be a great and cheap food.

    I've never tried to cook liver myself, and I've never tried raw liver, but we would sometimes get a liver stew in school, which I found quite tasty. I was basically the only one, but still. Also very popular in Sweden is liver paste or liver paté. I've never been too fond of the classical solid one you cut into slices, but in modern times we have spreadable liver paste, give me some of that on top of some butter on my sandwich any day of the week. Makes sense that a relatively young and wealthy country like the US don't have the same history of experimenting with foods, finding out as many possible ways of using as much of an animal as possible and preparing it for long time storage, but I've met way too many Americans who won't even try to expand their culinary world view with some of these things that has stood the test of time not necessarily because we still need to, but because people just find it tasty.

      Steak and kidney pie is delicious, so are others like Haggis, Liver and onion, I do enjoy me some English foods, cornish pasty, fish and chips with mushy peas etc are all pretty tasty...I am Naga Indian and so our diets can be full of spices and chillies, but it gets to a point where its too much, it can be any dish chicken curry, mutton curry, beef curry, vegetable curry, too many times they get so heavy with spice and chillies that you cant even taste the meats or veggies...I love the use of less spices in traditional English/western foods, like for example a nice steak, just season with a bit of salt, you can actually get to savour the texture and tender juicy meat, you get the real flavour of the meat.

    Liver can be really good if prepared properly. Here in Egypt they cut it into really thin slices cook it on high heat and not for too long with onions and peppers .

    • Ruinwyn
      Ruinwyn Month ago +1

      I suspect it is the slight acidic taste combined with sugar. The assumption is that when you are feeling sick, you have eaten something spoiled and your stomach tries to empty itself. And it gets suspicious about any food it's offered. Acidity protects food from spoiling, so it is easier to trust and the taste is recognisable to actual food. Body also gets desperate for energy (so sugar) and fluids. Caffeine has a slight bitter taste, which body tends to recognise as suspicious, so caffeinated sodas aren't as good. So, it is fluid with sugars that your body is absolutely craving, added with acid that isn't a result of fermentation and a little fresh scenting flavour. Bit of placebo effect or possibly the result of everything else giving a nocebo effect.

    Related to the video.
    Here in Mexico it's quite common to consume the organs and body parts of animals that could be considered disposable. People eat the chicken's feet, liver and heart. The same goes for the pigs, lamb and cow. In fact, there's a dish called "pancita" which is the stomach of a lamb or cow cooked in a broth and sometimes served with other organs. Also the tongue of the cow is cooked and eaten, apparently is quite a tender meat if cooked correctly (commonly in boiling water or steamed).

      @JT Plays not everything, skin/hide is used for leather and like chicken feathers aren't used for food either. Only time I had seen someone eat chicken feathers was in that food modification video. Also I'm talking about us eating it rather than an animal we will probably eat again later. Not dogs and cats for most territories since most of us won't eat dogs and cats. But animals like cows that we do feed them parts that we can just consume instead. Plus more nutrients to us. This going to the same trophic level wastes some of the energy and time needed to make the parts and we cycle it back in when it can directly benefit us, but some cultures have just changed to not want to consume it anymore, even though it is viable and healthy to consume.

    But properly cooked with a dash of butter, and topped with a ton of parsley.
    If you never tried it, go ahead.
    Don't turn the heat too high in your pan, and cook evenly.
    You can cut in half to check.
    The raw liver is dark red glossy, the cooked liver dark red mat.
    And the outer will be brown.
    Oh, and don't throw the cooking juices off! It's wonderful with bread!
    Just damp a piece of bread in it just after serving, this "pain jus" is delicious too!
    Liver has a sugary taste to it when correctly cooked, and it's due to it's function an an organ.
    It being soft and easy to chew, I don't understand why children don't like it (well, except when parents scream at their children of course, who could have guess...)

      Yeah I was so confused in him saying that organ meat is more expensive when it’s literally what poor people eat when they can’t afford meat. He mentions that most of the organ meat goes to waste anyway so I don’t get why they’re so expensive. I feel like it would make much more of a profit to sell it to a lower price for poorer people considering it doesn’t taste that good than high price for rich people who I doubt most would be into that type of meat.

      The everyday version you get at a Thai restaurant is cooked (medium to well done) and I would not recommend trying raw laab from a restaurant unless there’s some killer reviews for it or you’re extremely adventurous/bold.
