Hi Dietsheet. Welcome to FitDay.

The RDA bases their % on the minimum they feel is required for a 2000 cal diet.

Personally, I think their chart is outdated (yes, even the new one) and unrealistic. I do not follow it. They would hate my macro pie chart and I would gain weight if I followed theirs.

I do have a question for you. What does your daily diet look like?

I ask because your Vitamin A seems really low. I get 120% of Vitamin A from my 35 calorie serving of baby carrots alone.

And your Selenium % is super high compared to mine. My diet is high in veggies, moderate in fruit and completely nut free so I am usually lower than or right at the minimum recommended %.
