    Nutrient Details

    I'm tracking my food intake with the MyFitnessPal app.. I'm not trying to lose weight, just trying to avoid bloating and bowel bottlenecking these days. The app gives me 1600 calories per day based on my height, weight, and activity level being 5'5", 110lbs, and sedentary.. This feels wrong for a c6 because I have to eat way to much volume of healthy foods to reach 1600.

    I'd like to use lower numbers for my daily goals. How much Fat, Cholesterol, Sodium, Potassium, Carbs, Fiber, Sugars, Protein, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Calcium, and Iron should a 5'5" 110lbs sedentary c6 be getting? Where can I find this info?

    I love this app! Like you, I had issues of bloating (from fermentation in the small intestine - SIBO). I had to change my diet completely so I used the app to monitor my intake to see what kind of nutrition I was getting.

    As well, I liked taking notes because I needed a diary to determine food sensitivity.

    i also liked tracking my exercise and watching how that used up calories.

    in the end, all this info was useful because I had a printable food/water/medicine/exercise diary for my GI so he could determine possible issues to address in my diet.

    the app is free, easy to use, and has an enormous database of food.

    Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."
