Correct Amount of Nutritients
So I feel like I have finally made the transition from eating strictly weight loss to eating for health. I'd like to analyze my diet how close I am to an "ideal" diet. Anyone know of any websites that give guidelines for the number of grams of protein, fiber, sugar, fat, vitamins, minerals, etc. should be in an "ideal" diet?

I don't know to be honest. But one thing I've heard a number of times is that the FDA recommendations aren't ideal. They're very conservative numbers, and are based on a 2000 cal/day diet. There are health benefits associated with getting a higher intake of nutrients (in many instances), but at the same time, there are vitamins and minerals that can be toxic in large amounts. If my memory serves me correctly, vitamin A is one of them.
Sorry I can't help more, but I just thought I'd mention that.

This website is my favourite. There's a lot more info there than meets the eye, so give yourself a good hour or so to look around. Seriously, the amount of info is staggering.

I use Diet Power software to track my calories and 30+ nutrients in my diet. The website at www.dietpower.com offers a free 2-week trial, either by download or by mailed CD. Recently, I noticed that, for some reason, my selenium numbers were lower than usual. Using various features in the software, I was able to determine that I've recently been forgetting to include seafood in my diet.
