Nutrition Fingerprint

recommended approach

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

macronutrients

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

macro targets

While Peter’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 80
fat (g) 185 170
carbs (g) 0 100
energy (calories) 2150

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

Peter’s food diary indicates he is eating 1719 calories per day with an insulin load of 120g/day and with 28% 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 Peter’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
Peter 28% 120 55

daily nutrient score

The chart below shows a comparison of the nutrient density of Peter’s food log based on the harder to find 50% of the essential nutrients. Peter’s most nutrient dense day is November 19 2019 while his least nutrient-dense day is November 22 2019.

best and worst days

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