I recently joined daily burn and have found the calorie, protein, fat, carb goals interesting. I am having a hard time hitting them all on a daily basis and keep falling short. But since I have recommended the site to some people I now have a Pro Membership for a while. So it tracks more nutritional aspects of my diet. By I don’t know how to set those goals. I have no basis as to what I should be eating at this level and need to understand where I should be. I didn’t set up the first four goals. The site did it. Any Help?

I dont know if you have the App on your phone or just use the online account, but I have an iphone and set up my goals by
1) open app on phone
2) tap on “more”
3) tap on “diet goals”
4) tap on “calories” to change your min/max
5) continue with carbs/fat/protein

If you use online account go to Nutrition Tab
1) click on update diet goals
2) Fill out part 1 & 2
3) click on setup my diet goals
4) Keep track of your food…

It is hard to meet all needs every day and balance, but the important part of weight control (gain/maintain/loss) is the calories. I suggest before you make any caloric changes, that you first just get use to logging all your meals as accurate as you can, and see what your current average caloric intake is and then you can decide to follow or adjust your needs with a better understanding.

I go to a personal trainer, and he’s hot on nutrition, so he helped me with my nutrition goals. He made my sugars, carbs and sodium levels real low – because these are key to weight loss.

So my sugars are 50 – 100 mg, carbs 100-225mg and sodium 500-1000mg for the day. These are the ones I have the most trouble keeping to! Turns out low fat milk has quite a bit of sugar in it! Who knew!!
