Colekale Posted October 28, 2013 Share Posted October 28, 2013 Has anyone had a problem on Whole30 with too much Vitamin A? I have to track my food due to medical reasons and my doc was horrified when he saw how much Vitamin A I was getting on W30--close to 1100% of the recommended daily allowance (RDA). Since it is fat soluble, he said it stays in the body and can lead to toxicity rather quickly. Am I the last to know this is a thing? According to the NIH, apparently the upper limit is around 400% before medical problems are said to arise. love sweet potatoes, kale, spinach and squash--all 3-5 times the RDA in just one serving of any of those. I was having 1-2 per meal sometimes. Veggies are packed with Vitamin A so this plan seems to naturally lend itself to higher levels of vitamin A. I know W30 isn't about focusing on this kind of nutritional granularity but, more generally, has anyone had issues with chronic Vitamin A toxicity?
