The numbers between what are on packages and what is the CRON-O-Meter may always be different as they are representing two different things. The CRON-O-Meter is based on the USDA SR21 which is an analysis of food based on an analysis of several samples of the food.

Food labels are allowed all kinds of legal and mathematical loopholes and can round numbers up and/or down.

I do not know why you would be restricting your calories to such a low level as for most active people, it is probably to low. However, having said that, it is not difficult at all to meet all your nutrient requirements when consuming a diet of whole unrefined unprocessed plant foods.

I do not recommend the use of any supplements with the established need, informed consent and risk/benefit analysis with a professional health care person.

Cheerios is a highly processed and refined food and not one I would recommend.
