That is if working out by mg, what does the RDA/DV % say for your overall sample diet that you provided ?

I suspect with such diet that the cronometer would have shown that you were consuming at least probably 50% more copper than you were to zinc, if going by the RDA/DV.

With the sample diet you provided, were you actually able to achieve 100% of the DV/RDA for zinc out of interest ?

Especially considering there is pretty much no nuts or seeds, we haven't seen many in the raw food movement, who would thrive on such a restrictive diet, especially in the long term.

Copper/zinc aside, i suspect the sample diet you provided would be deficient or low in quite a few nutrients including Vitamin B12, Vitamin D, Omega-3 fats such as DHA, taurine, low in zinc/calcium and being that these are all land-plant based foods, there is likely little to no iodine etc, certainly not enough to provide enough dietary iodine daily.
