My Fitness Pal - Phase I
 
I am trying to set up my profile in MFP for Phase I and and could not find the amount of calories, carbs, sugars, protein that we are allowed on Phase I in my packet of information my coach gave me...does anyone know the dailey allowance amounts for these?:?: Thanks for your help.

50% protein
30% fat
20% carbs
I also track fiber so I can watch that I'm not over 40 net carbs.
I don't track sugar, just carbs.
These are APPROXIMATES according to my coach and nothing to get too hung up about if they aren't perfect every day.

I plugged in 1000 cals/day max. I RARELY have that many. Usually between 750-900

Hope this is helpful!
I only found I could make the changes on my computer, not on the mobile app.

Thank you, Lisa! I have used MFP before and know it can be a really useful tool in tracking where you are at for the day/week. I appreciate your help!

Anyone know the caloric target for Phase 2? I know we are not supposed to really count calories on IP, but, for myfitnesspal purposes, I need to put in something -- I'm tired of seeing that I went over my calories (because I've had it set for P1). Thanx.

You can also follow others on there -- I'm on it but don't track as well as Lisa, but I'll make that my goal again starting tomorrow. Sometimes it's great to see what others have been eating etc. for ideas. So many food items are in that data base, including the IP stuff - I just love it (when I use it... sigh...)

Just change the calorie goal. It's kind of irrelevant anyway since you don't need to track calories. Just up it to over what calories you're eating and it won't tell you you are over any more!

Thanks for this information. I played around with the numbers and could never get it quite right. This worked perfectly!

The numbers I gave are for the protocol, not for men or women
