I am interested in gathering and crunching some numbers about the SPD - standard paleo diet. I know there really isn't one, but so much has been bandied about regarding MACROs I would be interested to hear from people about MICROS. I will collect and tally the information as best I can and repost it here (<---- not a statistician).
So, for those of you who track your foods, what are your top 3 and bottom 3 MICROnutrients. How far do you exceed or meet your RDI for your top 3 and how far do you miiss the mark on your bottom 3. (I use cronometer and these are not exact to be sure because there are always a few foods at the end of the day that just don't make it into the matrix.)
Mine are: Top 1) B12 at 119% 2) Vit A at 114% and Vit D at 111% (I take clo and count that as a food)
Bottom 1) Calcium is low (I go dairy free) at just 25% 2) B1 at like only 27% 3) my potassium was shockingly a mere 29%! (This makes me wonder about the fruitfulness of my fruit free diet.)
Well, since only 9 people in total (I had some people off this board respond as well) took me up on this, I can't say any revelations are to be had. However, I will say that the top micro and lowest micro were pretty much reported high/low for each person who responded.
1 B12 (This was high in nearly everyone)
2 A tie for A/K (I don't know about this since tracking sites also count beta carotene in A a lot also K1 and K2 are not accounted for separately)
For the time being I'll just let this stand as is, but if anyone else wants to submit their highs and lows I'll continue to crunch. It's interesting to see trends I think. Thanks for responding folks!
