Guest Gigi Posted August 17, 2014 Report Share Posted August 17, 2014 Hello all. I am just starting on this CRON journey ... Dipping a toe in by working with cronometer to see if I can meet all my requirements without supplements. It has been quite an eye opener and fun ... But I am struggling with getting all my niacin without going way over on my protein, which I want to keep at no more than .8 g/kg for IGF1 reasons. Because I am a small woman (5'2" and 108 pounds), this means about 40 G protein a day. Further complicating my situation, I avoid grains and legumes ... Enriched grains would easily solve the niacin problem but they are not for me. Plus, eating an enriched source of a vitamin seems no different than just taking a supplement. Or am I being too purist? So avocados and portobello mushrooms seem very good low protein sources of niacin ... can anyone recommend any others? Also, is it possible that I might require a bit less niacin than 14 mg since I am indeed a tad smaller than average? :) Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
