Macronutrient Target Guid
Note - The guidelines given here are based off the body
response to macronutrient targeting should also be co
adjusted accordingly.

Fat Requirements
It appears that the risk for EFA deficiency can occur at fat intakes below
10%
The amount of total energy as fat in the diet can vary from 10 to 50%
without adverse effects on short-term health
The Acceptable Macronutrient Distribution Range (ADMR) of 20-35% of
total energy is a safe, reasonable and flexible target range for long-term
intakes
This translates to approxiately 0.6-1.2 g/kg of fat, depending on individual
preference, tolerance and goal
rient Target Guidelines
here are based off the body of evidence. Individual
targeting should also be considered, and targets
adjusted accordingly.

Carbohydrate Requirements
Once protein and fat requirements are set, the remainder of calories come from
carbohydrates.
