In Cron-O-Meter what I started using on occasion to track my foods.
As Doug Graham mentions in the 80/10/10 our diet should be calculated at percent from total calories, but if you look at many products in stores or how they calculate foods on Cron-O-Meter through nutrition facts, they calculate (for example) fat or any value as percentage of daily value. I just want to know how to calculate fat as percent from total calories as Doug Graham mentions? Milk say 2% fat for example (as daily value), how do I get the 35% fat from calories figure?
So how do I end up converting daily percent value to percent from total calories? like protein 10% or fat 10%. Cause I want to know if I am in balance with the 80/10/10. I know if I eat mostly fruits, I will achieve 80/10/10, but some days I slip, maybe eating more cooked foods, or more processed foods. Even though I try to keep these foods to the bare minimum. Can anyone help? Thank you.
I use a site called loos it to track my calories and it automatically tells me my percentage's. To give you and example if I don't add any fat to my day, I'll end up with 85-90/7/3 if eat about 15 almond's it's bump the fat from 3-6.
website please for loos it?
The pie chart in Cronometer shows your percentage from carbs, protein, fat for the day. Just choose the food you want from the database or if you're adding in your own foods based on the nutrition facts label, use the weight (in grams generally) of the nutrient, rather than the daily percentage listed on the far right. Vitamins and minerals only have the percentage, but they don't affect your macronutrient ratio (ex. 80/10/10) so don't worry about them. Those labels are based on 2000 calories/day, so you can just adjust everything based on your personal calorie intake if you need to use the daily percentage listed.
