Subject:         Been Using the Cronometer.....couple of ??s

Hello Jeff!

I downloaded the cronometer (as per your advice :)) and have been using it daily. For the most part, I'm easily hitting 100% in every category while keeping calories around 2k, but I have a few issues that I'm curious about.

1. I've been getting over 1000% of vitamin A and C and usually like 500% of K. Can this be harmful? I try to eat a head of greens every day and I love fruit esp. bananas but I've heard that Vit A can be toxic at high levels?

2. I'm having trouble getting enough calcium and zinc, usually only hitting 50-75%. Can you list some good sources of these? I know that nuts and seeds can help a little here but they tend to zonk me into a fat coma :)

3. I've been eating mostly plants lately so i'm not seeing b12. In the past i've put raw eggs into smoothies (as per advice from a Dr....ugh...) and after reading "Healthy at 100" Robbins notes that all the centenarian cultures include a little animal foods. Is it better to consume small amounts of animal foods or supplement with b12 in your opinion?

4. I try to get at least 15 min of direct sun each day but have no idea if i'm getting enough you recommend supplementing with D?

Thanks Jeff!
