How much is too much? Should consumption be regulated like liver? It's so cheap this could be my meat bedrock!

Heart is flank steak, very lean but with more iron. Surely every type of offal, except liver, can be eaten every day without a problem.

A lot of your symptoms are probably being caused by electrolyte depletion / imbalance. If you're low carb, you need to be consuming about 5 grams of sodium a day. 5 days / week of intense cardio is not healthy either.

You can search for paleo-friendly doctors in your area, and find someone who can see your complete medical history and examine and monitor you. That way you'll have good advice from someone who understands your whole picture.
