What does your report from Cronometer look like?
Yesterday I had:
Energy: 2060 kcal / 1500 kcal (137%)
Protein: 47.4 g / 46.0 g (103%)
Carbs: 453.6 g / 130.0 g (349%)
Fat: 15.2 g / 65.0 g (23%)
74% of Nutritional Targets Achieved
How to achieve 10 % of protein?
Ofcourse I only eat fruit and veggies.
Hi, this is actually my first comment on this site but been eating this way for a while, to my calculation this is roughly about 85% carbs/6% fat/9% protein of calories so it is 80/10/10. but I can see you are not in 80/10/10 calorie ratio (lfrv/30bananasaday), which you can change on cronometer in ''profile'' which is at the top of the screen (on the internet version anyways), so that instead of having 103, 349, 23 its would be roughly 100, 90,60. But if you use cronometer on the internet there is this circle on the right side of the information you just provided and its written ''calorie breakdown'' and that is the easiest way to see if you are eating 80/10/10 ratio's. hope this helps.
Thank you for explanation, I adjusted to (lfrv/30bananasaday) but I don't see any difference in the numbers.. You can see that my math isn't my "strong side" heheh..
Why have you got two different sets of values? Did you have 2060 or 1500 calories? Going by the first set of numbers, as far as I can see your ratios are about right percentage wise. You're eating way too little though. Just up your quantities and you should be on target.
From the looks of it, before setting nutritional targets, your protein calonutrient ratio was at 12.267...% (there are 4 calories for every gram of protein).
Just to give you an idea of how this works, On the 30BAD setting, for 1500 calls, the target protein would be 37.5g rather than 46.0, so you would be getting 135% of your target minimum protein, rather than 103%.
You will find the "Calorie Breakdown" pi-chart to be more usefull for looking at your macronutrient ratios.
As Jessy said, it should say 9.2...% calories from protein on that particular day, which differs from your protein target. If you increase the calorie target, the calorie breakdown will stay the same but the target percentages for the specific macro-nutrients (protein/fat/carbs), will decrease.
If you are still confused or have any other questions about Cronometer, please feel free to ask.
Oh, I get it now!
Thank you all for explaining that for me :))
You're looking at the wrong percentages :) this only means you're getting 137% of your daily needs for protein. Your overall food ratio is in a little circle pie chart, if you hover over that it tells you the carb, protein & fat (lipids) ratio :)
It took me longer to see it, I was looking on the wrong place of the page, in the options.. lol :D
