Almond Posted June 29, 2020 Report Share Posted June 29, 2020 (edited) Hi everyone! I'm experimenting a lot with my diet and I'm very interested in optimal nutrition. I wondered, do you track micronutrients that are not on Chronometer? For example, the iodine, fluoride and biotine databases are incomplete, while other things like chloride, sulphur, silicon, boron, vandadium, molybdenum, k2, strontium and others are not considered. I'm especially interested in those of you who always eat the same planned meals. Did you do the math manually once and for all? Did you account for antinutrients and absorbtion somehow? Is there any of you who manages to have decent zn:cu, fe:cu and ca:mg ratios without supplements while still eating lots of vegs? How do you do it? And if you correct the ratios through supplements, do you take enough to achieve the ideal balance even if you go over the upper limit for that nutrient, or do you stay under that limit even if the ratio is not ideal? My current project would be to create a meal plan and following it for life with minor adjustments. I'm not sure about the food philosophy to follow either. Is there any of the veterans who still eat animal products except for fish? I know that vegans have to take a lot of supplements, but can you be pescatarian without supplements? I guess choline and b12 and sun/vit D would be needed Is there any of you who still eats small amounts of any of these (lean meats, non fat yogurt, aged cheese, seafood, liver, organic eggs, bone broth) in the context of a vegs heavy, unprocessed, slightly calorie restricted diet and still is aging well? I know about methionine, I just want your personal aneddotic evidence. How many servings of fruit and vegs do you eat every day? In the long term are their only disadvantages antinutrients and possibly digestive issues or is there some other problem I'm not seeing in exceeding? How big of a problem are those two? Did you have any negative experience with too much vegs? Edited June 29, 2020 by Almond Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
