Furthermore, I consumed more fats as well, my fat intake was 56.37g while the recommended was 47.34g, saturated fat intake was 17.98g while the recommended was 15.22g, vitamin A was 703.73mcg while recommended was 700.00mcg, which was very close to the recommended intake. Vitamin B2 was 1.20mg and recommended intake was 1.10mg. Carbohydrates recommended intake was 209.22g while my actual intake was 238.25g.

My vegetables intake was 69%, which in amount was 1.4 cup equivalent, the recommended intake in amount was 2.0 cup
