The only supplements I take are vitamin D, and a calcium + magnesium (2:1 in favor of calcium). I just don't know how much to take at what time (the reason I'm supplementing lots of calcium is because I'm young, and don't respond we'll to casein) (more)

Depending on the sourcing of your food you may benefit from omega-3 supplementation as well. I supplement vit d and omega 3 daily because I cannot afford the more organic etc meat sources and so the omega 3 helps balance my 3:6 balance.

Do you think you really need the extra protein? You should be able to get enough protein by simply eating meat at every meal. If you want to build more muscle, consider adding more good carbs such as sweet potatoes. The carbs will replenish your... (more)

Hi I hear a lot of people on this forum supplement with zinc so i was wondering can you get all the zinc you need from eating lamb or beef? Do i need to supplement zinc if I am eating 1lb lamb/beef every day? Thanks

Matt_11 0 · April 21, 2013 at 3:46 PM

Google: Cronometer. But yes, 1 pound of 80% lean ground beef is 250% DV Zinc. 1 pound of ground lab is 151% DV Zinc. Zinc supplementation on paleo is odd I think, we get more than enough, unless you're ODing on copper via liver. (more)

Even with your BCAA supplement, I dont think you are in danger of having excess protein in your system if you are only consuming 60 grams of protein daily. 60 grams is pretty low IMO--unless of course, you only weigh 60 pounds.

I hate the taste. I was using them and switched to bone broth and mineral rich foods instead. I did add them to broth for awhile and they were much more palatable. Could not do it in water. Salty broth masks the taste better.
