I don't think the percentages are broken at all. The RDA is not a set amount everyone must get. It's a set amount based on a 2000 calorie diet. If you are eating 3000 calories, then your amounts needed would be higher than recommended and if you have a smaller calorie need than more than likely the diet based on 2000 calories is not going to fit you. You may be getting 100% of what you need even though the RDA (based on a 2000 calorie diet) says you have less.
