What to eat on a raw diet and how many% of the calories ingested should be in each part of the pyramid?

Eating some precise % from different parts of a poster won't help you survive.

You can't go wrong with the overarching philosophy of 'whole-foods, plant based'.  That means avoid processed foods, sugars, animal proteins.  Fish and or a couple eggs 3x per week is ok; a little dairy is ok.  Obviosuly avoid tobacco, drugs, alcohol and red meat.

Step 1 is focus on your micronutrient intake.  You want to achieve higher than the RDA requirement for all vitamins and minerals from FOODs if possible, and only supplement thereafter those which are necessary.

You can input what you eat and evaluate all micronutrients easily using the FREE chronometer app.

Maybe read this before thinking about popping any pills: https://web.archive.org/web/20060223002839/http://www.cron-web.org:80/supplements-guide-3.html

This is a crude piece of advice, but wrt making a meal that has plenty of folate, magnesium, manganese, fiber, vitamin k, and much more is that if the cornerstone of your diet is just: 'Beans and Greens' you can't go wrong; it's simple and just gets to the point; and any raw veggies are always beneficial.

I.E. some black beans, kidney beans, etc. with spinach, kale, etc. with some spices, extra-virgin olive oil, vinegar and mix it up.  This is dynamite if you're looking to avoid diseases and live as long as possible.  Almonds, Walnuts and Berries are also great superfoods; and some whole grains are not bad either and can provide some soluble fiber.  Adding half an onion to the beans and greens gives you some alium veggies and also keeps ugly girls away.  Carrots and some sort of cooked tomatoe (or tomato paste) is also important - you can make a vegan chili or pound back some V8 juice, but you need lycopene and beta-carotene.
