I'm about halfway through listening to all of the Robb Wolf podcasts, and on one, he touched on this interesting subject. That the pretty high RDA of various vitamins and minerals that CW recommends are not really necessary if you are eating pretty low carb. I bring this up, because I've recently started an elimination experiment with all goitrogenic vegetables due to my hypothyroidism. With crucifers and most leafy greens out of the picture (and obviously starchy vegetables too), I've been just relying on lettuces, mushrooms, onions, shallots, and garlic as my staple vegetables. If I am getting around 25-50 grams of carbs daily, which vitamins and minerals would I need less of? Can anyone point me to some good references on this topic?

The lower your carb intake, the lower your micronutrient needs?
