micronutrient profile

The chart below shows the micronutrients provided by Bill’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 Bill’s diet is shown in the chart below.

protein

Bill’s protein intake is 1.8g/kg LBM or 117g/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 Bill’s current protein intake compares to these accepted minimum protein intake levels based on his current lean body mass.

scenario % calories g/kg LBM for you (g/day)
minimum (starvation) ~6% 0.4 26
RDI/sedentary ~11% 0.8 52
typical ~16% 1.2 78
minimum nutrient optimiser ~24% 1.8 90
Bill 26% 1.79 117

macro targets

While Bill’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) 90 245
fat (g) 25 130
carbs (g) 0 85
energy (calories) 1850

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 Bill’s food log based on the harder to find 50% of the essential nutrients. Bill’s most nutrient dense day is June 17 2018 while his least nutrient-dense day is June 15 2018.

best and worst days

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