While on the PSMF, it’s next to impossible to get enough nutrients from food alone, as it is so low in calories.
That’s why it’s imperative to supplement your diet with the nutrients and minerals your body requires to function.
I strongly advise anyone following the PSMF to take multivitamins, essential fatty acid supplements that have EHA and DHA in them (typically obtained from fish oil capsules), vitamins, and minerals typically potassium (as well as eat high potassium foods), magnesium, sodium, and calcium, to prevent electrolyte imbalances.

Recommended Psmf Diet Supplements
The Psmf Diet lacks in essential fatty acids(also known as EFA’s), so a supplement will be needed.
Fish Oil is the oil or fat that is taken from fish tissue. It comes from oily fish such as anchovies, tuna, herring, and mackerel.
It’s sometimes produced from fish liver. It is recommended to eat one or two portions per week of fish.
This is suggested because it provides plenty of omega-3 fatty acids which help fight against many diseases. Fish Oil contains around 30% of omega-3’s
