Lysine/Choline

Getting a lot of new information from using Cronometer daily. I now know that to just maintain my current weight is 2158 calories per day. My macro ratios looks something like 55% protein, 30% fat (while keeping saturated fat below 10 grams a day — my goal), and 15% protein. My individual amino acids look very good with just 15% protein with the exception of lysine. I’m regularly low in lysine. Not sure what to do about that. As for my vitamins and micronutrients, iodine is an issue and I’m eating seaweed now daily, but choline is another problem. Almost always low in choline despite being super high in just about everything else. I may start taking a choline supplement.  As a vegan, don’t want to start eating hard boil eggs to solve this problem.
