From a blog entry I replied to on 'Hate the Paleo Diet', as that is the Diet I am excited about following.
Supplement with D3 at 250 mcg/10,000 ie a day to help the regulation of sugars and up your weight loss 125% on the lower-calorie diet, and try eating a sprig of fresh parsley a day for minerals that help lower the sugar/white bread cravings.
D3 will up your energy levels and smooth out dieting anxieties and the fidgeting that comes with it. I've already been on one day at 50,000 ie/1,250 mcg, and I can personally report it is quite safe. I have been suffering from very poor sleep and insomnia.
I reccomend cracked wheat bread from Whole Foods Market to supplement the diet while you are weaning off grains. Don't get discouraged! It's actually an essential parahormone you are lacking, not grains and sugars!
Front page of Vitamindcouncil.org :
"Technically not a "vitamin," vitamin D is in a class by itself. Its metabolic product, calcitriol, is actually a secosteroid hormone that is the key that unlocks binding sites on the human genome. The human genome contains more than 2,700 binding sites for calcitriol; those binding sites are near genes involved in virtually every known major disease of humans.Current research has implicated vitamin D deficiency as a major factor in the pathology of at least 17 varieties of cancer as well as heart disease, stroke, hypertension, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, depression, chronic pain, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, muscle weakness, muscle wasting, birth defects, periodontal disease, and more.Vitamin D's influence on key biological functions vital to one's health and well-being mandates that vitamin D no longer be ignored by the health care industry nor by individuals striving to achieve and maintain a greater state of health.If well adults and adolescents regularly avoid sunlight exposure, research indicates a necessity to supplement with at least 5,000 units (IU) of vitamin D daily. To obtain this amount from milk one would need to consume 50 glasses. With a multivitamin more than 10 tablets would be necessary. Neither is advisable."
Read the newsletters for hearing the letters from folk who have been using D3 in doses much higher than the current FDA-reccomended limit. All overweight folk suffer from this deficiency, and it is critical to your health.
I am trying to do the paleo diet myself, as D3 is linked in a huge way to diabetes, and I want my immune system back. I have been Type 1 for 14 years, lost my left hand to a tumor, and have strong winter insomnias. All are related to heavy D3 deficiency.
