    just had my bloodwork come back...help...i am really derailed

    hey guys,

    another topic to help me on. I have a low red blood cell count, low white blood cells (i am deficient in vitamins b12, folate, magnesium and zinc)
    I have high urea levels from constant caffiene (thermogenic use).

    steps i have taken:
    have invested in magnesium spray, zinc tablets, b12 supplement and weeding out caffiene as well as a milk thistle extract to clear out waste from kidneys from high protein intake and caffiene abuse.

    I am leanish as i have stated in other posts. 78kg 5 ft 11 Male 22 years old. 12-15% bodyfat.

    I still want to progress with my running career and still train like i posted in other threads and have found good kettlebell routines from mike mahler.

    Can anybody help me with sources of B12 other than organ meats and other things i can do to help reach aesthetic and performance gaols.
    Is there anything paleo wise i should not eat and should eat more of to help?

    Thanks again everyone for being an awesome community of primal/paleo help

    Chris

    Oysters!

    Alternatively, study up on how it is obtained digestively. Something may be amiss there.

    Sorry for my ignorance. Explain the thermogenic use of caffeine.

    Drinking caffeine to raise body temperature and burn calories works for some people. My stress spikes and I do not lose any weight OD'ing on caffeine. Coconut oil is also thermogenic, and will not elevate cortisol the way caffeine does in some people AFAIK.

    Abuse has caused me homocysteine problems. Low RBC count and lowering my b12 and folate and bodies ability to break down protein efficiently at kidneys

    Yeah today has been my first day so far. Didn't realize the seriousness of the results.
