or my Avocado Fries...
So, I won't bore you with the rest of my day but in that the end of the day, you are given daily intake totals and your percentage of daily allowances (ie. how you have done.) Mine looked like this:
Daily Intake Totals
Cals 1895 Fat 88g Cholesterol 0 mg Sodium 1134 mg Carbs 293g Fiber 60g Protein 49g Sugars 122g
Customized Nutrient Goals
Cals 1970 Fat 64g Cholesterol 296 mg Sodium 2364mg Carbs 296g Fiber 25g Protein 49g
Percent of Your Daily Allowance (based upon a 2,000 calorie diet scaled to your calorie goal)
Cals 96% Fat 137% Cholesterol 0% Sodium 48% Carbs 99% Fiber 244% Protein 99%
So, basically I met my caloric, carbohydrate and protein needs almost perfectly, was low in sodium and cholesterol (a good thing,) was high in fiber (another good thing,) but way high in fat (not a good thing!) Probably, I am having way too much olive oil on my salads and more than usual added fats in my nuts, avocados, tahini etc... While I am consuming good fats, my overall fat intake is too high so now I know this is something I will work on.
Livestrong also gives you a Calorie countdown chart, Weekly Intake Totals, a Daily Intake Nutrition Chart, and so much more. I just started Monday and am still learning about it but I am impressed!!!
- Makes you more concious of what you are putting into your body
- Gives you unbiased, scientific breakdown of what you are really eating
I am going to learn more about this and have more fun with it so there will be many more posts to come! Enjoy your weekend!!!
