This image shows my intake for the last 7 days. I have not included any supplements. I supplement with Vitamin D most days as I am almost in Canada and not getting sunshine. I have supplemented a fish oil capsule about twice but that is not showing here, nor is a multivite I took one day. I have celiac disease, limit nightshades and am a bit sick of sweet potatoes. I'm 5'5" female, 48 yrs old, and 128 to 130 lbs. I'm recovering from months of chemo and rads so my appetite and activity aren't very high yet.

Thiamine, folate, E, Calcium and Potassium are the DVs of a little concern to me. WWYD?

I like fish :) On top of that I rarely eat poultry and don't eat much seeds and nuts. That said, I'm not religious about any of them and follow Chris Kresser's advice on that n-6 intake is not necessarily a problem with adequate n-3 intake (provided that the n-6 is from the right sources). I do like seeds and nuts but just make sure to pick the ones with the best ratios and amounts of n-3 and n-6. Also keep in mind that there is a huge difference between a ratio of 4 and 1 - I don't want to give the impression that I'm ALWAYS below 4.

Hemming, that's a great ratio. How do you do it? I don't use a lot of olive oil; even on weeks when I eat sardines a couple of times, my ratio's not much better. I eat a lot of veg, red meats, I use butter.

I have no expertise in saying how you macro intake should be given your situation. But I do think that your O6:O3 ratio is too high at 13. Personally I stay below 4 and many days I'll be below 1.
