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 Bruno’s diet is shown in the chart below.

protein

Bruno’s protein intake is 2.1g/kg LBM or 125g/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 Bruno’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 24
RDI/sedentary ~11% 0.8 47
typical ~16% 1.2 71
minimum nutrient optimiser ~24% 1.8 45
Bruno 22% 2.12 125

macro targets

While Bruno’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) 45 70
fat (g) 150 180
carbs (g) 0 40
energy (calories) 1800

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

Bruno’s food diary indicates he is eating 2226 calories per day with an insulin load of 139g/day and with 25% 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 Bruno’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
Bruno 25% 139 70

daily nutrient score

The chart below shows a comparison of the nutrient density of Bruno’s food log based on the harder to find 50% of the essential nutrients. Bruno’s most nutrient dense day is June 21 2018 while his least nutrient-dense day is June 21 2018.

best and worst days

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