HI I am connie sue I am new and know nothing I have been looking at the Analysis and the Fat, Carbs, and protein does anyone know the amount i should be getting. My dailey calories suggested was 1850 I have been way under that. What is the Grams in the Analysis( grams of what)? I just want to try to keep everything in my limits.
Thanks for any help.
The different macronutrients (protein/carb/fat) are shown in grams, as well as perecentages in your analysis.
As for the breakdown you should get, there is no set formula.
Everyone is different, depending on their personal goals. There are several different frames of mind.
I would recommend you look in the Fitness forum and you will probably get a greater idea of some of the different ratios used.
One example might be the 40/30/30. That is 40% carb, and 30% protein and 30% fat.
Again, that's just one example.
For instance, I try to keep my protein high, and my fat low.
I usually have my carbs at 50%, my protein at 30% and my fat at 20%.
Again, just an example.
This is a great article from one of several experts that about.com has on staff.
It discusses Nutrition Basics and has a lot of useful info regarding the macronutrients.
