It is possible I am not eating enough magnesium although, I consider my diet to be pretty good but using this list from The 4 hour body:
Magnesium (400 mg per day recommended for an average, healthy 25-year-old male)
1. Pumpkin seeds (pepitas), 2.6 oz (2 oz = 300 mg)
2. Watermelon seeds, dried, 2.8 oz (2 oz = 288 mg)
3. Peanuts, 1.6 cups (1 cup = 245 mg)
4. Halibut, cooked, 1.2 fillets (half a fillet = 170 mg)
5. Almonds, 5 oz (2 oz = 160 mg)
6. Spinach, 2.5 cups (1 cup = 157 mg)
7. Soybeans, cooked, 2.7 cups (1 cup = 148 mg)
8. Cashews, 5.5 oz (2 oz = 146 mg)
9. Pine nuts, 5.7 oz (2 oz = 140 mg)
10. Brazil nuts, 6.3 tbsp (2 tbsp = 128 mg)
I don`t really eat any of those foods apart from almonds and spinach. I do eat plenty of of grapes, berries, salads, black tea, brocolli, granary or wholegrain bread though.
Is this enough or should I make a conscious effort to eat more on that list or is there any other foods high in magnesium?
I`ve stopped taking the magnesium malate, in fact I`ve stopped taking supplements altogether. I think something I was taking was making me feel a bit odd. My feet were aching and tired for a bit. Might of been over worked but since stoppping the supplements I feel ok again. i`m going to be more careful with supplements, I really do think they can do more harm than good.
