I am allergic to most fish and seafood in general. My body cannot handle any animal that generally lives in the sea. It is very severe I almost died a few times. My question is what foods do I need to focus on to get the same nutrients that the Seafood provides? I am going to be severely deficient ?

If you're allergic to sardines, salmon, oysters, shellfish and crustaceons and sea vegetables like kelp/seawees then you could supplement with DHA fish oil capsules and a multivitamin that has selenium/iodine, and a bunch of the other trace minerals in seafood to cover your bases.

Phzeek, I'm in the same situation you are. Like one of the commenters above, I use flaxseed oil daily. Another source of omega-3's you should consider are pastured eggs. The factory-farmed ones don't have nearly as much omega-3 goodness available.

I have the same allergies and eat Paleo. DO NOT substitute fish oil caps or iodine! If your allergy is true like mine, these can land you in serious trouble! I speak from experience. I make sure to eat lots of varieties of chicken, pork, beef, bison etc. Add in loads of veggies, especially dark leafy greens and good quality fats from avocado and olives etc. You will be just fine! Good Luck!!!
