For me it was quite a surprise that I was diagnosed with anemia. At no time did I notice tiredness or decay, and that I train with intensity 6 days a week. Imagine the shock . For this reason, from here I encourage you to periodically have a checkup to check that everything is in order and always have a trusted dietician-nutritionist to teach you how to eat correctly, according to your preferences when it comes to eating and your state of health.
The truth is that I am doing quite well and the only thing that has cost me is to reduce the coffee, which due to its high tannin content is not advisable. And it is that in the office it is difficult to resist when you smell the aroma of your colleagues’ coffee… When I drink it, I try to keep it away from iron intake; for example, mid-morning. I also avoid combining tofu or tempeh with iron sources like lentils or chickpeas. Also, I have eliminated the vinegar and soy sauce.
