If the 100% is 400 IU... not. That amount is only ok if you don't want to get rickets. I actually went up to 1000 D3 (after a prescription dose of 50000 IU D2 from my doctor) and still only went up 3 pts.

I am currently taking a supplement of 3000 IU (D3) and going out in the sun for 20 minutes on the days I can.

I think the correct dose does depend on your weight and also activity level. I was shocked that my mom got up to 40 so quickly but she doesn't do a lot of exercise and she is about 30 lbs lighter than me.
