macronutrients

The macronutrient split of Ian’s diet is shown in the chart below.

macro targets

While Ian’s primary focus should be on nutrient density, the table below shows the macro ranges required to achieve a reasonable level of nutrition. These ranges can be entered in Cronometer as a guide.

macros lower limit upper limit
protein (g) 90 215
fat (g) 25 135
carbs (g) 0 135
energy (calories) 2100

Going forward the Nutrient Optimiser Smart Macros will adjust your macros on a weekly basis to ensure you are moving in the right direction.

daily nutrient score

The chart below shows a comparison of the nutrient density of Ian’s food log based on the harder to find 50% of the essential nutrients. Ian’s most nutrient dense day is June 17 2019 while his least nutrient-dense day is June 19 2019.

best and worst days

Ian’s food diary for the best and worst days are shown below for comparison. Ian should try to eat more of the foods towards the top and less of the ones towards the bottom of these tables.

Note: If you don't see worst and best days please upload your servings.csv file from Cronometer. Cronometer API doesn't allow individual foods to be imported.
