micronutrient profile

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

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 Sophie’s diet is shown in the chart below.

protein

Sophie’s protein intake is 2.4g/kg LBM or 110g/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 Sophie’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 19
RDI/sedentary ~11% 0.8 37
typical ~16% 1.2 56
minimum nutrient optimiser ~24% 1.8 65
Sophie 33% 2.35 110

macro targets

While Sophie’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) 65 170
fat (g) 20 90
carbs (g) 0 60
energy (calories) 1300

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 Sophie’s food log based on the harder to find 50% of the essential nutrients. Sophie’s most nutrient dense day is May 22 2018 while her least nutrient-dense day is May 16 2018.

best and worst days

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