macronutrients

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

macro targets

While Jaila’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) 60 135
fat (g) 15 110
carbs (g) 0 55
energy (calories) 1450

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

Jaila’s food diary indicates she is eating 1106 calories per day with an insulin load of 140g/day and with 51% 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 Jaila’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
Jaila 51% 140 114

daily nutrient score

The chart below shows a comparison of the nutrient density of Jaila’s food log based on the harder to find 50% of the essential nutrients. Jaila’s most nutrient dense day is July 29 2019 while her least nutrient-dense day is May 13 2019.

best and worst days

Jaila’s food diary for the best and worst days are shown below for comparison. Jaila 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.
