Going outside in the summer makes me think of that scene in Wall-e where he flies past the sun on his way to the Axiom and his power bar fills up in about 2 seconds. I always think of my little Vitamin D bar maxing out just walking from the door to the car. Even today...it was in the low 90s. Of course, Ireland has got to be much prettier than South Texas...I envy you...

    This hits them all. I use FitDay.com's nutrient calculator. If you every have an off day, eat a couple cans of smoked oysters--puts you way up there in most nutrients.

    You win the thread. Have a.... piece of jerky. Or some dark chocolate. Your choice.
    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.

    FitDay's nutrient calculator is missing several nutrients I think. Not that I'm saying you're wrong about this but I'd be curious to check on the nutrients not ithe FitDay calculator that still have an RDA.

    No, quite the opposite. Supplementing Vit D (which I do at 5000IU/day) renders calcium supplementation unnecessary, perhaps even detrimental

    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

    I was about to say, I almost do this every day. Oysters and liver are on the menu at least twice a week, and I eat rose hips when they're in season for the vitD, but have to supplement in winter. Those photo-flash mushrooms are supposedly a valid source of vitamin D, so I do eat those somewhat regularly, too. Add animal fats, nuts, eggs, avocado and that's most of what a body needs right there.

    I'm trying to get myself to learn to love seafood. I figure that would be the balancing piece for me.

    That being said, I assume I get everything I need from food because I never supplement and never have (not even during pregnancy). And, I'm healthy as a horse (or ox) or whatever.

    Seafood would definitely help out a lot. I think sea vegetables like seaweed and the like are nutritional powerhouses in addition.

    I'm no fan of seafood or sea veggies. it's either too fishy or too salty for my tastes. lol
