I've been entering what I eat daily into cronometer.com. I tend to not eat enough, maybe 1700-1800 calories, but today I bumped it up to 2741 and it said I was getting enough of all the nutrients I need. Woo! I plan on eating well like this every single day. I have a few questions though...
First question: According to cronometer, today I had 11 mg of manganese, which is apparently 685% of my daily recommendation. Is too much manganese consumption something to be concerned about?
Second question: Cronometer says absolutely nothing about iodine. Do I need to worry about getting enough? Some websites I've read suggest that vegans supplement, while most other places do not appear to mention iodine at all.
Third question: Cronometer also says that fat makes up 37% of the total amount of calories I ate today. The rest being 10% protein and 53% carbohydrates. Should I be eating less fat and more carbs? Or am I just worrying too much?
Sorry about all the questions! Thanks guys.
P.S. I'm nearly 16 years old, 5'5'' (possibly 5'6'' now?), about 124 pounds last time I weighed myself.
