It's hard to stick to a diet or a healthy eating plan for a long time. But I DO plan on trying it again, & sticking to it because I really need to get my health in the right stage. I'm not fat, but I eat A lot! And a lot of greasy and unhealthy foods (no candy). But I will get better at it... I just love food so much ha ha! I can't see myself ignoring such delicious stuff!
So if the iron is 83% now, and I take 2 vitamins a day, then I'll be consuming 166% of iron. Is THAT safe if my diet isn't that great? Yes, I agree that if you consume too much iron, or too much good anything, it's not good for you. 166% iron seems like a lot, but is it really?
I don't have any medical concerns that I know of, but I'm always paranoid when it comes to my health. I would like to strenghthen my immune system, and energy and other things, but I don't want to go over board! Thanks a lot ;)
