I asked before but didn't get any response........so thought I would do it again.

I am looking to find what my daily totals should be following Atkins. For instance, how much protein, fat and I know the carb shouldn't be more than 20. What are the other two? Also does anyone know what our daily sodium and other nutrients should be? As I finish logging my food in FitDay it is always high in sodium, probably from the cheese.

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks
Jane

Hi Jane,

I believe the appropriate ratios are 65% fat, 30% protein and 5% carbs when all is said and done. This may vary once you hit OWL tho and start adding more carbs.
