Bidaar niggas, do not despair, there's hope besides Turkey.

Beware of minoxidil it has cardiovascular side effects. I've been on finasteride for 3 years now and I use lavender oil as substitute my bidar is gone now.

I just eat animal foods. No fruits, no vegetables, no plant oils, no grains or grain-based foods or anything more processed than yogurt, butter or cheese. So that means red meat usually in the form of goat meat but with beef, lamb and camel eaten as well at times; seafood like fish and shrimps; milk and milk byproducts; eggs and poultry; and game meat if I can ever get my hands on it. I try to make sure the food is as organic as possible but it's not a must. I also try to make the dairy raw (like raw milk) but sometimes it's too much to go to a farm or the prices are too high so I just opt for store-bought laban.



I eat to satiety and don't really keep track of macros and micros though at times I did out of curiosity and I'm usually off the charts for the majority of micronutrients while averaging 150-300 grams a day for protein and fat and seemingly never more than 40-60 grams in carbs from dairy and the trace amounts that can be found in things liver and eggs. I try to eat 1-2 meals in the middle of the day (like a meat bowl + some yogurt and laban followed maybe by a seafood plate for meal-2) but a lot of days I just eat throughout the day until I'm full and don't wanna eat and then I may just not eat for almost 24 hours until I'm hungry again. I also just instinctively skip breakfast and only eat after my morning workout which is either a swim at the beach (~2km), a bout of outdoor calisthenics or either half of an upper-lower weight-training split.

I definitely feel the benefits in terms of body composition, skin quality, body odor and overall health and have been doing this sort of thing for many years now with only small, minor interruptions.

I have also been experimenting a bit lately with supplements. Never took supplements in all my 27 years nor needed them to feel superb but lately I've been trying Taurine (2-4 grams per day) since I buy that we aren't getting as much as our ancestors likely did since our meat isn't as fresh and we don't consume as much seafood as they did given that seafood is possibly one of the main reasons they routinely appear as more high trophic-level (higher up on the food-chain) than even lions, wolves, hyenas and carnivorous bears:


  • Isotopic evidence for the diets of European Neanderthals and Early Modern Humans
  • The Paleolithic diet of Siberia and Eastern Europe: evidence based on stable isotopes (δC and δN) in hominin and animal bone collagen
  • Origin and Diet of the Prehistoric Hunter-Gatherers on the Mediterranean Island of Favignana (Ègadi Islands, Sicily)
  • Reconstruction of African Human diet using bone collagen carbon and nitrogen isotope ratios
  • Determination of geographic origin of unprovenanced Aboriginal skeletal remains in South Australia employing stable isotope analysis
  • Stable Nitrogen Isotope Ratios of Bone Collagen Reflect Marine and Terrestrial Components of Prehistoric Human Diet

^ Study titles for some isotopic studies that inform on paleolithic diets.


On top of that I take a bit of Boron (6mg a day) and am planning to add on D3 and K2. Just an experiment with those other three after reading some interesting stuff on getting higher doses of them than you would through foods. All in all, I think I somewhat feel the difference the 2 supplements I do so far take make but I feel great in general so who knows.

If you're going to at all imitate my dietary practices some advice I might give would be to maybe limit dairy, particularly milk, laban, yogurts and certain cheeses (the more carby dairy foods, basically) if you're not an active person. If you regularly exercise and move around then they're solid but they may make you carry just a bit more fat otherwise. They'll never make you overweight or obese but yeah, just not as lean as you would be on just meat, eggs and seafood is what I've noticed. Other than that may just try to eat 1-2 meals a day and usually around the middle of the day (or a 16:8 sort of eating routine) as it seems more "ancestral" or at least better for leaning down but eating to satiety anytime you want works for me too, honestly. Be active, get as much sunshine as you can, abstain from vices and good luck.

I've had some pretty catastrophic sports injuries (resulting in 3 surgeries so far) and will now have to switch to hydrotherapy & swimming in order to restore my movement; I had a femoral shaft fracture, tore my ACL, tore my meniscus and developed an osteochondroma, bone spurs and got osteoarthritis -- all in my right knee.

:jcoleno::mjcry:

I'm going to augment my diet and use of supplements in order to maximise the restoration of movement.

I'm just about 183cm. I imagine you're a Nilotic monstrosity at well over 190cm or something so maybe up the Taurine intake to 4-7 grams per day if it doesn't set you back too much. Raw milk from a local farmer should help you with the calcium, D3, K2 and phosphorous for healing those injuring as well along with loads of other benefits. K2 and D3 should help in the doses you see in one tablet for those supps I linked to as well and eat plenty of bony, fat, connective tissue rich cuts of red meat (collagen, which is like 50% of what bone is, should be a key word) along with plenty of fatty fish.

To be frank, I'm not a medical professional and am not really giving you medical advice here. Just spitballing what I'd personally do. Also goes without saying that alcohol, any recreational drugs and even p0rn and masturbation (yes, believe it or not) ought to be off limits. Get some sleep, get some sun, keep stress levels low or alleviate them with time with family and friends and I hope you recover, my guy.

Interesting. I'm curious about this diet so I'll try out for the next 2 months. It's going to be a weird change not to eat any fruits vegetables or whole wheat products but my curiosity will eat at me if I don't. I'll keep you updated on how it goes.

I'd do it slowly. Cut things out one by one on a biweekly or monthly basis (like giving up fruits first then starches then veggies and so on). An immediate change can be quite shocking for your gut microbiome and weird for your system overall that's probably not remotely fat-adapted. Not to mention that you may even oxalate dump. Slow, walaal. Slow.

And keep the protein high (don't fear it; this is not keto, you want the protein and fat comparable and frankly the protein probably a bit higher) and maybe start out by having a fair amount of salt with your meats, eggs and seafood. Then remember that with low carb intake you'll need a new fuel source so be generous with animal fats as well. Butter, tallow, ghee, fatty meat cuts, fatty fish, cheeses like manouri... the works.

@Shimbiris you are SS resident walking experiment. What new age shenanigans will you come up with next...

The irony in that is the new age is the antithesis to what I'm doing and to human nature:

  • Veganism
  • Transhumanism
  • Transgenderism
  • Open relationships
And a weird bastardization of Desi and Indhoyar spiritualism. How's your praaaana, bro? 💀 Or how is your chi? Chi kulaha. Chi to me is either the first syllable in Cheetos or the word "What" in Farsi

Nah, nigga, I'm just about trying to replicate how humans lived for 99.99% of our history in order to maximize health and happiness since it seems clear our genes and anatomy mostly never left the Paleolithic and I don't exactly share their dislike of vaccines, western doctors and traditional values. Nor do I care for their love of eastern medicine woowoo-isms. Nin empirical ban ahay, or I at least try to be.

The hell is transhumanism :deadrose: and I thought open relationships were always a thing in the past. Guess my old high school biology teacher lied to me :damn:
 
Your solution works for balding but the infamous ‘bidaar’ issue is a different thing altogether. Some Somalis have fucked up genetics so they’re born with wack hairlines and big foreheads. Nothing can be done to fix a messed up hairline as @Affliction said. Especially if you have 4b/c hair you can’t even try to conceal your hairline

Yeah it’s hilarious how in families someone can have 3a hair and another sibling have 4b/c. Genetics huh
