    My advice on eating liver about once per week comes from Matt Lalonde. Since he eats Paleo and is phd biochemist I'm going his advice. Different animals have different concentration of Vitamin A. Inuits will http://www.livestrong.com/article/26...-uric-acid/not eat any polar bear liver because one meal of will make a person sick. PBs have the highest concentration vitamin A of animal animal

    What Johnson thinks is how elevated uric acid leads to insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome. So for purine foods it depends on how much you are eating

    Would I be putting a grain-feed cow on a fad diet if I took it out of the feedlot and put it on pasture eating the grass nature intended?

    Polar bear liver is not cow's liver. I challenge you to eat too much cow's liver. You will get tired of it long before you overdose on Vitamin A.

    Sardines in mustard sauce are delicious!

    68 grams of beef liver is has over 400% the daily needs. As a hunter Grok was not eating much liver weekly

    I've regularly consumed 10,000% of my RDA of vitamin A in one meal and it did nothing bad. I often eat a pound of liver at a time, beef or chicken. I am the evidence you are looking for. I seek out and religiously eat purine-dense food, and have been doing so for three years. Have lost 45 pounds, suffered no ailments - at all, other than a sniffle here and there, and once I ate some bad beef heart and had to barf - and feel like a million bucks. You want proof? I can double my oyster and liver intake for you. I see no reason not to.

    My life will be very high quality when my panic and worry is from research of how eating sardines and beef liver will make me fat.

    I can buy Wild Planet sardines for $2.79 at my local WF store. Vital Choice is $1 more per tin (same weight) plus S&H. Is the Vital Choice enough better to justify the higher price? I eat a lot of sardines so $1 per tin will add up pretty fast.

    Go for it. Mark Sisson relies on research. I do too. I'll continue to listen to someone like Matt Lalonde since he is a biochemist

    The RDA is the minimum. I sometimes will eat a pound of liver over a couple of days. I'm the only one in the house that eats liver so I have to eat it all. What usually happens is after I've eaten it I have no desire for liver for a while. Then eventually liver sounds tasty again and I have another pound of liver. It's amazing how if you listen to your body it actually knows what is right for you. I honestly believe you can't really overeat liver so long as you don't force yourself to eat more than you want.

    And how can you worry about sardines? They are small fish that are low on the food chain. They're not going to have the mercury or other metals of tuna or other larger predator fish. They have lots of Omega 3. I eat them almost every work day. I have never gotten gout. About the only thing that sardines (and salmon) do to me is when I cut myself I bleed too much. All that Omega 3 thins your blood.

    Sometimes the things people worry about around here are so insane. Most people used to eat packaged meals that are made with multiple forms of MSG and sugar, are loaded with cheap ingredients including freeze-dried vegetables pretending to be real vegetables and never worried. Or they let big companies prepare all their meals and said yes when asked if you wanted the combo meal but never worried. Now suddenly ooh, worry about sardines, worry about liver, worry because it's in a can, worry because some fat old guy got gout because he also ate too much steak after his golf games.

    We are meant to eat densely nutritious foods. We are not meant to use a spread sheet to figure out what to eat. Our appetites work for that. But you have to feed your appetite real, dense nutritious food because it's not fooled by the lighter stuff.

    Amen to this. All choices come with some risk. I think the advantages of tinned sardines far, far outweigh the risks.
