Beef liver, how much is too much?

I've tried searching the forum and haven't found what I'm looking for.

What's the typical BP serving size of beef liver? 4 oz?

And how often can it be eaten? Most websites suggest no more than once per week. But I want to know what the BPers suggest. I could eat it every day of the week.



  • Last year during a stressful month, I craved and ate liver almost every day for 2 weeks. Then the craving went away. I'm sure I was low on B vitamins due to the stress and my body needed to reup the supply.

    There isn't really a maximum... you probably could eat it every day and be fine. You'd want to watch out for iron overload since liver is high in iron.

    One of the reasons for eating liver is that it helps with potential nutrient deficiencies. Generally, it's good to have 4 ounces of beef liver once a week. A couple times a week would be great too.

    Unfortunately, you're not going to get any extra super-powers by eating liver every day (compared to once a week).
