Nutrition Fingerprint

recommended approach

The food and meal lists in this report have been tailored to help Göran get more of the nutrients that he is not currently getting a lot of while also helping him to meet his goal of fat loss with a low insulin load diet and being paleo.

approach average glucose (mg/dL) average glucose (mmol/L) selected
therapeutic ketosis > 140 > 7.8
diabetes management 108 to 140 6.8 to 7.8
weight loss & blood sugar control 100 to 108 5.4 to 6.0
weight loss < 97 < 5.4
most nutrient dense < 97 < 5.4
nutrient dense maintenance < 97 < 5.4
lean bulking < 97 < 5.4
athletic performance < 97 < 5.4

micronutrient profile

The chart below shows the micronutrients provided by Göran’s diet as a proportion of the daily recommended intake (DRI) for each nutrient (including supplements).

supplements

The supplements listed below will provide Göran with the nutrients that he is not getting enough of until he is able to improve the nutrient density of his diet.

Most people do not meet the recommended intake vitamin D from their food so ensuring adequate sun exposure and vitamin D supplementation is important.

nutrient ratios

The graphs below show the key micronutrient ratios in your diet. The Nutrient Optimiser uses the micronutrient ratios as a safety check to make sure that you’re emphasising foods or meals that might worsen these micronutrient imbalances.
