Nutrition targets vs macronutrient targets

Hello, I’m new here, trying to follow a LC diet. I established my macros on ruled me and followed the guide to entering them into Cronometer. All good so far. Yesterday I completed my first diary day in Cronometer, but was surprised to see that the targets in the diary are completely different. Can anyone explain?


  • What are the macros you expected and what is currently showing? Did you choose the exact food items as in the guide (if they provided them)? Did you check to use the same database as the examples? In general, NCCDB or USDA are the more complete and reliable databases.

  • Hi thanks for your reply. I found the answer in another thread. I hadn’t set up the macro targets correctly (manually)
