    So I just got off the phone with Kirkman vitamins and thank you for the help!!!!!!!! I didn't see free of corn so I called. They said the vitamin C they use is derived from corn but the protein is removed. Does this mean I can have it? How does that effect the lectin content? If I can have that, then I found my vitamin! I'll be so happy

    Okay, so you're eating a huge salad...

    Why not skip the salad and eat a 6 egg omelet? Or a 3 egg and 3 extra yolks omelet? Bet you'll hit some of the vitamin numbers Fitday suggests. Definitely should be good to go on vitamin A.

However with a lack of appetite and such a restricted diet it's hard. 14 nutrient dense foods. Many I can't have but I have not tried bone broth yet. Guess the name freaks me out a bit-like the liver. I know, grow up already
    You can't complain that the 14 nutrient dense foods is too long a list, but that the diet is too restrictive simultaneously. You need to step out of your comfort zone. Take small steps until you get there. And stop eating massive bowls of cellulose if you aren't able to hit reasonable daily calorie intake.

    Plants don't have real vitamin A, they have proto-vitamin A. Eat the egg yolks.

    Also, I'm not sure I'd live my life by Fitday's recommendations. How are you eating a lot of beef and not getting enough iron?

    That's what I wonder about. I was surprised to see such low iron. I would love to eat eggs as I have free range chickens. I'm allergic to eggs My diet is restrictive due to having celiac and food allergies, not that the list is restrictive.

    I will dive into the world of bone broth and marrow though. Going to pick some up this weekend.

    This one has iron in it along with calcium. Is this ok or not? I'm waiting for a call back to see if it has corn. Thank you for the suggestion.

    Awesome! I would assume that since lectins are proteins, they would be removed in the process.

    Also, I went to the Proferrin website to check for allergens in their iron supplement, and the info states: "Proferrin® ES does not contain milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, soybean, corn, or gluten products." It's made from bovine hemoglobin. I'm always anemic or borderline despite being a fan of red meat and liver, and Proferrin is the only supplement that can actually bring up my numbers and doesn't make my guts hate me. I was really happy to see that they're offering a free 30 count bottle for new customers, shipping is $7. It's usually $25, and I'm technically a "new customer" because I usually order it elsewhere, lol. Also, you can get it by prescription from your doctor, sometimes that works out cheaper than OTC if you have good insurance.
