Nutrition Fingerprint

recommended approach

The food and meal lists in this report have been tailored to help Ingunnn get more of the nutrients that she is not currently getting a lot of while also helping her to meet her goal of blood sugar management with a low insulin load diet.

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 Ingunnn’s diet as a proportion of the daily recommended intake (DRI) for each nutrient (including supplements).

supplements

The supplements listed below will provide Ingunnn with the nutrients that she is not getting enough of until she is able to improve the nutrient density of her 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.

macronutrients

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

protein

Ingunnn’s protein intake is 2.4g/kg LBM or 96g/day.

The average protein intake for all people who have had a Nutrient Optimiser analysis done is 1.9g/kg LBM, with half of the population sitting between 1.4 and 2.5g/kg LBM.

Generally accepted minimum protein intake levels are shown in the table below. Higher levels are required to support lean body mass if you are more muscular and/or more active.

The table below shows how Ingunnn’s current protein intake compares to these accepted minimum protein intake levels based on her current lean body mass.

scenario % calories g/kg LBM for you (g/day)
minimum (starvation) ~6% 0.4 16
RDI/sedentary ~11% 0.8 32
typical ~16% 1.2 48
minimum nutrient optimiser ~24% 1.8 70
Ingunnn 38% 2.39 96

macro targets

While Ingunnn’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) 70 130
fat (g) 15 100
carbs (g) 0 30
energy (calories) 1350

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

net carbs, insulin load, insulinogenic calories

Ingunnn’s food diary indicates she is eating 1042 calories per day with an insulin load of 67g/day and with 26% insulinogenic calories.

Insulin load is influenced by the amount of carbohydrate, protein and fibre. Lower levels can stabilise blood sugars. However, a very low insulin load diet can compromise nutrient density.

The table below shows the % insulinogenic and insulin load (based on Ingunnn’s average calorie intake) for the Standard American Diet (SAD), the average of all people who have had their Nutrient Optimiser analysis done as well as typical levels for people managing diabetes and therapeutic ketosis.

approach % insulinogenic insulin load (g) net carbs (g)
typical SAD 54% 338 281
average optimiser 29% 165 73
LCHF 25% 156 63
therapeutic keto 15% 94 31
Ingunnn 26% 67 14

daily nutrient score

The chart below shows a comparison of the nutrient density of Ingunnn’s food log based on the harder to find 50% of the essential nutrients. Ingunnn’s most nutrient dense day is February 03 2018 while her least nutrient-dense day is February 01 2018.

best and worst days

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