I always go over the RDA for Vitamin C and A. Calcium and Iron I always seem to be under since I don't drink milk. I can reach the RDA if eat about 200 g of liver in a day but it's not something I do on a daily basis.
Is it a big deal if i don't meat the calcium and iron RDA? thoughts?
When you're young and active, low amounts of calcium may not be an issue, either. As women age and our bodies go through menopause, the calcium in our bones starts to decrease. If you are not actively supplementing with calcium or getting lots of calcium in your diet and participating in weightbearing exercise on a daily basis, your bones could become weaker than you would want them to be.
Conversely, the iron isn't as important as women age and stop regular blood flow every month.

Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine
Just a thought - but way back in the day......as in caveman times........the food that was ingested would have to have been more nutrient dense than today??????? wouldn't it ????? so todays foods might just be totally different ???
just wondring !

Step 1: acquire beef liver
Step 2: Fill in the gaps
Step 3: Profit??
Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

My friend did this through most of her pregnancy and for the year that she breast fed. She also took prenatal vitamins, but tried to get her rda of micro nutrients outside of the vitamins. She is primal... she's not on this forum, but she is the one who introduced me to MDA She said it could be very challenging. I don't think she was too strict on the calories though.... she's one of those people who can eat whatever she wants and not gain an ounce anyway though... lucky girl
