I do it to keep myself honest more than to worry about whether I'm getting all the required nutrients. But every week or two I look at the running average out of curiosity.!

As I said, I'm not usually worried about details like this as I believe that focusing on the big picture of lowfat whole plant foods will ensure the details are taken care of. And I'm quite willing to buy that the requirements are not real, as per the calcium one. But I have found myself wondering whether I should deliberately try to incorporate more foods that have higher contents of Vitamin E.
Can you please give me your belief on how much Vitamin E is necessary (minimum) and how much you would recommend (ideal)?
