micronutrient profile

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

supplements

The supplements listed below will provide Shawn 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 Shawn’s diet is shown in the chart below.

protein

Shawn’s protein intake is 6.1g/kg LBM or 562g/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 Shawn’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 37
RDI/sedentary ~11% 0.8 73
typical ~16% 1.2 110
minimum nutrient optimiser ~24% 1.8 165
Shawn 55% 6.14 562

macro targets

While Shawn’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.
