The calories required to maintain your weight comes from your Base Metabolic Rate (BMR) Fitday calculates this when you enter your height, weight, age and activity level when you set up your account. If you haven't done this yet you will want to.

The percentage of calories from protein, carbs, etc.. come from the foods you eat. If you have been using foods from the search or browse then the breakdown of the protein, carbs and fat grams are show to the right of the quantities. Fitday uses these numbers to calculate the percentages. Vitamins and minerals are calculated againts the RDA (US Recommended Daily Allowances) for a 2000 calorie/day diet.
