That is perfect information for me! Thanks for the quick reply. chris

GOAL: Reduce A1C,BP,tryglicerides,and weight. HOW? By not eating added sugar, using Omega3s, base meals on veggies, water aerobics at least 3X week and using NuStep when I can't get to the pool.

There are 2 forms of vitamin A.
The type found in meats, liver, supplements can be toxic at very high intake amounts.
They form found in fruits and veggies is not dangerous in large amounts.

See this article for all the details.

My nutrition tracker continually tells me I eat too much Vitamin A. If I follow Fuhrman's plan which says 2 lbs. of veggies a day, Vitamin A is always high.

I don't eat close to the 2 lbs. of veggies but I still get this warning.

Comments? Thanks, chris
