Autoimmune Thyroid Disease

An Unfortunate and Lengthy Adventure in Misdiagnosis

A funny kind of diet

leave a comment »

Most people don’t even hit 50% of RDA on a lot of vitamins and minerals without help from fortified products or multivitamins, whether they eat nothing but wholefoods or not. However, you can meet or exceed your RDA in every vitamin and mineral by eating the following extremely limited diet:

1 tbsp butter
2 medium eggs
1.5 pints whole milk
3 oz wheat germ
10 brussels sprouts
8 oz beef steak

This diet meets the RDAs of all vitamins and minerals, hits 200% RDA for most, and goes up to 400-600% for some micronutrients. These foods are very carefully chosen. Carbohydrate is less than 70 grams per day, which is still a quantity classified as low in carbohydrate. There’s room for several hundred spare calories depending on your size. And it’s failsafe, if you tolerate milk and wheat.
