I just set my RDI, but now I'm looking at the breakdown of fat grams, carb grams, etc, and I realized I have no idea what I should be targeting! Is there an RDI for each of these, or does anybody have advice to how I can figure it out based on my personal RDI?

Thanks!

There is no set number. It depends on the diet you plan to follow. Start with making sure you eat lots of vegetables (French fries do not count), lean protein and healthy fats, and you can figure out the rest later.

This thread at bodybuilding.com (don't let the name scare you, the information is applicable to anyone) is an excellent starting point for determining your daily calorie and macronutrient targets.

Thanks everyone! Nimm, I'll take a look at the link when I get home. I ended up calculating just from the "recommended daily intake" amounts on the nutrition information, but I feel like I'm being encouraged to eat too many carbs with that! Smile
