Nutrition Fingerprint

recommended approach

The food and meal lists in this report have been tailored to help Joel get more of the nutrients that he is not currently getting a lot of while also helping him to meet his goal of nutrient dense maintenance.

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

supplements

The supplements listed below will provide Joel with the nutrients that he is not getting enough of until he is able to improve the nutrient density of his 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 Joel’s diet is shown in the chart below.

protein

Joel’s protein intake is 0.9g/kg LBM or 51g/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 Joel’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 22
RDI/sedentary ~11% 0.8 45
typical ~16% 1.2 67
minimum nutrient optimiser ~24% 1.8 80
Joel 12% 0.91 51

macro targets

While Joel’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) 80 195
fat (g) 20 105
carbs (g) 0 120
energy (calories) 1750

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 Joel’s food log based on the harder to find 50% of the essential nutrients. Joel’s most nutrient dense day is June 10 2017 while his least nutrient-dense day is July 10 2017.

best and worst days

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