HI everyone, I am fairly new to tracking my nutrition in fitday, but from what I have done so far I can see that I am almost always very low (below 50% RDA) on Magnesium daily.
But as I cant tolerate magnesium supplements (tried MANY types - they give me loose stools as they do with lots of people) and I don't get on very well with nuts and seeds either how can I possibly get my daily levels up? I see things like chard are fairly high but it seems like I would need to eat a massive amount of greens to get enough magnesium
google 'nutritiondata' and go to that website (nutritiondata.self.com) They have a screening tool that will choose all the foods highest in magnesium and lowest is something (I choose fat, or calories) and spit out all those lists for you to peruse.
I have a similar issue. I'm allergic to nuts and possibly some seeds. I have started eating bananas more often and that seems to have helped. If it continues after you experiment, you may want to check with your doctor.
