Vitamin D
 
I have read several times that ladies do not get enough vitamin D in their diets but just read an article that stated many men do not either. I always thought that I did but now am not too sure. What would be some good ways to make sure that I am getting enough into my diet?

Milk, nonfat, reduced fat, and whole, vitamin D-fortified, 1 cup
Yogurt, fortified with 20% of the DV for vitamin D, 6 ounces (more heavily fortified yogurts provide more of the DV)

Diet...okay...let's not forget that vitamin D is also synthesised through the skin's contact with sunlight/cloudy days etc. Of course, depending on where a person lives will depend on how much vitamin D they are able to get via sunlight and surprisingly as it may seem, some of the sunnier areas don't get as much vitamin D as other areas, something to do with the relation of the sun to the equator and a host of other things along that line.

I supplement D3 daily. Two pills a day, 5000 IU's each.

If you are worried about it, get outside a bit more and suck in the vitamin D from the sun and supplement with a pill.

I don't really worry too much about vitamin D. I get outside enough and also enjoy foods that are rich in them such as liver.

I drink 1/2 gal whole milk a day..minimum

I believe the upper limit is something like 4k IU so as a bber I just take that amount per day. Could be a little over since I live in California. Been Supplementing Vit-D3 for like 6 months and no issues experienced.

If I'm not outside much should I be taking more?

Depends on what you are eating during the day. Do you eat foods that are rich in vitamin D?
