Too much Manganese

A big problem I have had trying to eat healthy is that a lot of foods websites recommend as a staple in the diet(whole wheat bread, brown rice, oats ect...) are so high in manganese that I would go over the UL of 11 mg if I followed such advice. A lot of vegetables and some seeds would also breach the manganese limit before they provided me with enough calories. The foods that don't have this problem are fruit which is high in sugar, animal products that are high in saturated fat or white food which have a high GI.

Should I raise the amount of fruit and animal products I have to get enough calories or should I follow a whole grain diet and go over the manganese limit or is there another alternative? Currently I deal with this problem by getting enough of my calories from white long grain rice(which I've read has a low GI for a white food).

By the way I don't have a problem getting enough vitamins or minerals and my weight is fine so it's only the manganese-calorie problem I have trouble with.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Too much Manganese


I don't understand why you're focusing on Manganese. Did a doctor tell you that you have too much Manganese in your system? Do you have some medical problem that requires you to keep a close watch on your Manganese consumption?
