I’m a vegan, 75%+ raw, and out of curiosity, I pulled up yesterday’s food log. It was a pretty typical day.
Iron: 95% daily allowance
calcium: 80% daily allowance
zinc: 80% daily allowance
B12: I supplement, so 200% (More meat-eaters have a B12 deficiency than vegetarians, by the way. B12 is everyone’s issue, not just ours.)
For the hyper vitamins
A: 557% daily allowance
D: 0% daily allowance (I don’t see how a vegetarian would get hyper D unless they were eating supplemented foods. I get my D from sunshine, so if I were to overdose, I’d also have sun poisoning.)
Others you didn’t mention that are really high for me yesterday:
C: 902% daily allowance
Fiber: 258% daily allowance
Pantothenic Acid: 216%
Everything else appears to be within normal parameters.
My protein is at 42g which I feel good about. My doctor told me to try to get 50g per day, but I’m building good muscle from exercise and don’t have any symptoms of low protein, so I feel comfortable at this level.
I’ve never had anemia, so I can’t really speak to that issue.
I don’t know whether any of this is a myth or not, but I grew up vegetarian and went vegan when I was diagnosed with diabetes and then went high raw in October. since going vegan, I’ve lost about a third of my body weight and I feel awesome. But who knows what my health will be like after being vegan for ten years? I figure I’ll just keep doing the things that make me healthier so long as they are making me healthier and if they stop making me healthier, I’ll play health detective again until I figure out what I need to change.
