Daily Caloric Values

So I found this neat website that will analyze the foods you eat to tell you the nutritional information of them: It also has a tracker to help you see where the calories you eat come from. Based on the information I gave them (height, weight, activity level, etc) I should aim for about 2213 kcal/day to maintain my weight. It also suggested that these were the minimums I attain for daily nutrients, which is what I found most helpful.

Your Recommended Minimums
Total Carbohydrate 130.0 g
Dietary Fiber 25.0 g
Linoleic Acid 12000.0 mg
Alpha-Linolenic Acid 1100.0 mg
Protein 46 g
Vitamin A 2333.0 IU
Vitamin C 75.0 mg
Vitamin D 200.0 IU
Vitamin E 15.0 mg
Vitamin K 90.0 mcg
Thiamin 1.1 mg
Riboflavin 1.1 mg
Niacin 14.0 mg
Vitamin B6 1.3 mg
Folate 400.0 mcg
Vitamin B12 2.4 mcg
Pantothenic Acid 5.0 mg
Biotin 30.0 mcg
Choline 425.0 mg
Calcium 1000.0 mg
Chromium 25.0 mcg
Copper 0.9 mg
Flouride 3.0 mg
Iodine 150.0 mcg
Iron 18.0 mg
Magnesium 310.0 mg
Manganese 1.8 mg
Molybdenum 45.0 mcg
Phosphorus 700.0 mg
Selenium 55.0 mcg
Zinc 8.0 mg

I plan on using this information to track my diet for the next few weeks to see if I am actually getting all the nutrients I need like I think I am. We shall see! :)
