# Nutrient balances

So could someone tell me how to calculate my Omega 6 : Omega 3 ratio with those numbers in the picture below for example?

Thanks

Hi there mrgndbtn,

Your ratio for each of these pairs of nutrients is shown in the centre of each nutrient balance. You can calculate each number by finding the values for each individual nutrient in your targets and dividing them.

For example, your omega-6 intake divided by your omega-3 intake = 1.039

Hi Karen,

Thanks for your reply!

Just one thing, you know how the ratios are normally written like so: 4:1 for example.

How would that translate with my result 1.039?

Knowing that omega 6 = 6.1 and omega 3 = 5.9?

omega 6 : omega 3

6.1 : 5.9

6.1/5.9 = 1.039
