I just started my Food Log today, which I set up in Excel.
The spreadsheet totals Cals, Protein, Carbs, and Fats. The three macros are entered in as grams. The issue I have is caculating the macro breakdown. Should I arrive at the percentage breakdown by the gram or by the calorie per macro-nutrient? Currently I am doing the breakdown by the gram.
If it is by the calorie, what are the per gram figures now acctepted for protein, carbs, and fats?
Here is an example I pulled from half a days meals before all my p&f’s, so don’t flame the imbalance
Pr. 174gm Carb 191gm Fat 24gm
Pr. 45% Carb 49% Fat 6%
