That's unfortunately not an option for me - I have super light skin and in mid-day sun I burn after just 5 minutes of exposure... But my doc said the morning sun will help a little. Now I'm not sure!`

I can understand that!  I have read that you only need to be exposed for like 20 minutes at like 2pm in the middle of summer to get enough vitamin D for the day tho.  That much at least will not make me burn.

I take 6000 daily as recommended by my midwife. I was taking 20,000 at one point because my Vit D was suuuper low. It's steady now but she wants me on a maintenance dose, especially with winter coming!
