100 Days Of Dietary Data

I’ve posted individual dietary days as an example of what and how much I eat (https://michaellustgarten.com/2015/12/31/130-grams-of-fiber-2400-calories/). However, a few days of examples may not represent the whole dietary picture. To address this, below is my average nutrient intake for the past 100 days (from October 24, 2018-Feb 5 2019):

Notice that my average values for many of these variables (i.e. potassium, selenium, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, etc.) are way above the RDA. For more info on that, I have several blog posts that explain the “why” behind that. Where am I getting those nutrients from? Shown below are 100-day averages for my food intake, ranked in order from most consumed (in grams, or ounces, if it’s a drink) to least:

During the past 100 days, my top 5 foods in terms of daily intake include carrots, strawberries, red peppers, watermelon, and cauliflower. Scroll through the list to see how much I average on a daily basis for each food!

Please have a look at my book, if you’re interested!

    Much appreciated!
    Given that you provided your whey intake in grams rather than fluid ounces, I’m assuming you eat some whey powder rather than drink actual whey – is that correct?

  2. What, no sunchokes on the list??? You’ve literally changed my life! I’ve been adding a giant sunchoke to my beet & veggie smoothie every morning. I feel fantastic!

    1. Yep, I’ve removed sunchokes. I may have FODMAP sensitivity. Lots of gas and some bloating with inulin+FOS rich foods like sunchokes, Yacon powder, garlic and onions

Tracking Deep Sleep-Can It Be Improved?

Sat Feb 16 , 2019
Deep sleep, the stage of sleep also known as “slow wave sleep” declines during aging. Based on a meta-analysis of 65 studies representing 3,577 subjects (aged 5 years to 102 years; Ohayon et al. 2004), slow wave sleep, expressed as a percentage of total sleep time decreases during aging from 25% […]
