How much liver can you eat per week

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created July 31, 2013 at 3:19 AM

I bought a pound of liver yesterday and just over 1/3 pound of it today, but its probably going to go bad in a few days. And, I'm the only one in my family who likes liver. My question is, is it ok to eat 1/3 pound of liver tomorrow and the day after before the liver goes bad. The pack age I bought measured 474 grams raw. Is there any detrimental effect to eating that much over 3 days. Or, would it last longer than 3 days?

P.S I bought it frozen on the 29th, today is the the 30th (I had 1/3 of a pound), I would have 1/3 pound tomorrow and the 1st of August, would it last any time past that

What do you eat liver for? B12, A, and copper. 4 ounces has 2800%, 625% and 1230% of each respectively. 4 times that seems like overkill, unless you're not going to eat it for the next month or so.

That can happen with pretty much any nutrient. Would rather eat it and take my chances than to let it go to waste.

+1 I self-experimented with liver and found that 4-6 ounces was enough to see positive effects.

Except you end up literally pissing away much of the nutrients.

Thanks, I love liver so I like to eat just as much as I would any other meat, I was just wondering about vitamin a toxicity. But what about vitamin b12, can you get too much of that?

Its only a pound, eat the whole thing in one, or two sittings at most.

According to the PHD diet, you only need 1/4 lbs of liver per week. I think if you wanted to eat it all, go ahead. Eating a lb of liver at a time doesnt appeal to me so I generally cook the whole thing, eat 1/4, and freeze the rest in 1/4 lb portions for the following weeks.

Depends on your needs. I've read 2-3 servings a week (size of your palm) for an average person, but for people following autoimmune protocol to eat up to 5 servings a week.

Check out www.paleomom.com, lots of science and reasoning.

I buy a big chunk, rinse it, then and freeze it in portions that I will eat of usually around 100g-150g. Use within a few months.

You could refreeze it.

You could cook it and refrigerate it.

You could eat it all, and you likely wouldn't feel any negative effect.

It's only if you ate like that regularly that you might experience toxicity.
