The Food Diary tracks your total Fat/Protein/Carb intake for the day in that pie chart. However what are the recommended percentages of each?

Not 4-1 carbs to protien Wink To lose weight you need to reduce your carbs and increase your protien and healthy fats. You should talk to your doctor or a nutritionist to get the exact numbers.

Yeah I know I'm not currently where I should be, but wanted to know a good ratio to shoot for. Also, I realize that not all fats and carbs and protein are created equal. Thanks for replying!

A good Ratio to start is 50/30/20 Carb/Protein/Fat. Gotta eat fat to burn fat.
