What the hell can I eat/drink that has no

Recommended Posts

I drink Skim Milk and it has 10% RDA of Vitamin A.

I drink Soya Milk and it has 10% RDA of Vitamin A.

I eat cereals and it has 10% RDA of Vitamin A.

And i take them all together for breakfast (and snacks) and that means 30% + of recommended Vitamin A daily intake.

And undoubtedly I eat other stuff that has Vitamin A on it, I just don't notice.

People help.

Well I skip dark green veggies, oranges, tomatoes, carrots, sweet potatoes, milk, cheese, foods fortified with vit.A, papayas, chilis, squashes, any I miss?

I'm scared of vit.A after undergoing accutane therapy.

S214 i wouldnt worry too much about it - most people around here say that as long as you do not take vit A supplements you should be ok - just dont overdo it with food that has vit A in it!

beta carotene is ok to eat (which is the 'vitA' in all those veggies and stuff) since your body only converts it to vita when it needs to, which obviously it wontif you're on accutane. so just stay away from liver, egg yolks and supplements.

you'll be fine.
