I am on day 5 of LFRV (was high fat/gourmet raw before). I am tracking my calorie and nutrient intake using chronometer religeously and notice that my protein is still lower than 10% and the only foods I can think of as being rich in protein are also equally rich in fat but I am already eating slightly over 10% as fat as it is.
I am eating a huge green salad everyday as well as tons of fruit, my calorie intake is fine but my 80-10-10 balance is a bit off and is more like 80-5-15
I know how to bring the fat down but not sure how to get the protein up
ahhh great, I shall not concern myself then, thank you :-) On my current intake it worked out that 10% protein would be 50g which seems bit high anyway so thank for clearing this up for me :-)
looks like you are doing fine! 5% is plenty.
The 811 concept goes like this: 80% minimum from carbs, 10% maximum from both fat and protein, so i would say you are doing fine.
Many people on this lifestyle actually feel and perform better when the ratio is more like 955.
Hope that helps.
Very helpful, thank you :-)
Yeah I thought 10% was high as it worked out at 50g of protein and from my studies it seems that adult humans need 30g maximum
I don't eat nuts as I don't like them really and have stopped making salad dressings with oil, I now use date soak water and fruit juice (yum!)
Thanks for your help
