- Fish Oil
I am currently looking back at why I started taking them and if it is possible to get what I want from a balanced diet. I would like to get everything from my diet but do not want to stop taking them all together. I would like to reduce them gradually so there is no ill affects to my body.
I then started to take fish oil and calcium after reading Jillian Michael’s Master Your Metabolism. I do not get much fish in my diet and previously did not get much diary and therefore calcium. I have noticed my nails are stronger and I can lift more weights, but this could be from an overall improvement in my lifestyle.
Can I get these from whole food?
- Wheat Germ
- Dried Apricots
- Soya Flour
- Dark Green Leafy Vegetables
- Diary Foods
- Green Leafy Vegetables
- Soya Beans
- Fish (where you eat the bones)
- Wild Oily Fish
- Flax Seed
- Chia seeds
So from my research I can get all the supplements from a good diet. I did no this I just needed to confirm it 🙂
Now I have to figure out how to make sure I get what I need. I will continue to take my supplements while I figure this out, but the aim is to reduce them where possible and get everything I need from good whole foods.
My next step is going to be researching how much of everything i need and then work out the best way to get it from my diet.
I don’t want to create a strict diet plan but I would like to have some basic rules. For example, eat 2 portions of fish a week; eat 2 eggs a week. Those kinds of things. I want them to suit my lifestyle and allow me choice.
I’m currently reading Superfoods Healthstyle, which is also giving me some good ideas.
It’s been an interesting few weeks of learning and accepting and I am loving it. I’m just starting this journey and there is so much to learn, but I love learning 🙂
