Thursday, May 23, 2013

In looking at the end of the day values for my Fat/Protein/Carbohydrates breakdown, I decided to try to find the "ideal" ratio.

I discovered the following:

The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends this distribution for the energy-producing nutrients:

Fat: 20 - 35% of total calories (average 30%)
Protein: 10 35% (average 15%)
Carbohydrates: 45 65% (average 55%)
(Alcohol, the fourth energy-producing nutrient, is recommended in moderation if at all. )

The ideal pie chart would fall within any of these percentages. Make your diet healthier by choosing high fiber carbohydrates, low-fat proteins, and fats from plant- instead of animal sources.
