Hi all, I am wondering if I am over-consuming organ meats with an early grave on the horizon. Care to check out my diet and give some feedback:
PWO #1 (1st MEAL):
Sea Salt(1 tsp.) Vitamin C(500 mg.), Vitamin D(800 i.u.) Shredded Coconut(300kcal worth) turmeric, cayenne, paprika, ginger powder, eggs(6 raw yolks, 6 cooked whites) garlic(bulb) parseley(sprig) bone(ground-20 grams)/eggshell(10 grams)
Organ MEat Liver or Kidney(6-7 oz.) Gelatin(1-2 oz.) Butter(50-60 grams) Vitamin D 800 i.u.(depending on sun exposure)
Tuna(can, yellowfin) Oil(cod liver oil/olive oil, usually cod) egg(1-2, 1-2 yolks raw, 1-2 whites cooked) "Coconut mix"(as above, 6 oz.) Onion/garlic bone(ground-20 grams)/1 eggshell(10 grams)
PWO #2 (4th MEAL):
organ meat Kidneys or Liver(7 oz.) coconut oil 1 tbsp Butter(50-60 grams) gelatin(1-2 oz.) cabbage Vitamin C(500 mg.), Vitamin D(400-800 i.u)
imagine you are an ancient hunter. you and your fellows kill a large beast. it has one large liver, one large heart, 2 kidneys, 1 brain, 2 eyes, maybe testes if its male, LOTS OF FAT, bones, stomach, intestines, thyroid, thymus, pancreas/spleen/gallbladder. these have to be shared. one personman isnt eating the liver by himself over the course of 4 days, it would be rude AND unhealthy.
I can't think of any reason not to eat lots of kidneys apart from possibly too much selenium over the long term and possibly too much (possibly oxidised) cholesterol. E Eating too much liver might be a problem solely insofar that you may get too much vitamin A. Eating chicken liver will allow you to eat more liver (less vitamin A). Also getting lots of vitamin D should reduce the toxicity risks of the vitamin A. I can't think of anything else to fear from 'offal' as a food category.
