How to use Eclipse instead of Change Sets to promote individual object components from sandbox

I am trying to create a project in Eclipse with only the items that I am modifying.  I am currently able to do this with the Deploy/Change Set feature in the Web UI.  In Eclipse I expand the objects and select the items I want to include in my project using the 'Add/Remove Metadata Components' menu item.
So far, so good.   When the items are added to my local Eclipse project, they are now XML listings of the entire object with no option to select only the fields, workflow rules, validation rules etc.  In other words, I selected sub components of an object to add to my project, but I only see the complete object in my project.

 How can I promote only the individual items from sandbox to production?  I don't want to promote the entire objects.
