But what about excess micronutrients?


Sorry, it’s a noob question, but I was looking at People Chow 3.0.1 and trying to adjust it to a variant that’s right for me (I’m short, very short, and do not weigh very much at all). In the original some of the vitamins are at excess of 2000% of the target/recommended amount. Obviously we can go over a little bit or a lot without running into toxicity or other problems depending on each thing, but how do we know when we’re hitting the actual, dangerous ceiling? Or is that only a problem when we’re heading in excess of 10000% or something?


The nutrient profiles have both a minimum and a maximum value. If above the maximum, the entry will turn red.


This is a pretty vague answer, but there are some micronutrients which the body can more easily deal with an excess, and some which it can less easily manage. Off the top of my head, I don’t have a list of which is which.
