Year in review: my nutrient intake

25.11.2012 – 25.11.2013

I had a 1 year Low Carb anniversary on the 25th of November. The year went by really fast and as the 2013 comes to an end, it’s time for some housekeeping. As mentioned in my previous post I track everything I eat on daily basis which enables me some nice analyses. I summed my nutrient intake for a year (365 days), and got some interesting results.

All in all I ingested 1.7 million kCal, with 69% coming from fat, 18% from protein and remaining 13% from carbs. That is 132 kg of fat, 77 kg of protein and 52 kg of carbohydrates (enough energy to heat water in a 1,4 m deep 50 m swimming pool for 1 °C !).  On average daily basis that equates to just over 4700 kCal per day and 360 g of fat per day, 210 g of protein and 143 g of carbs.

As far as nutrient groups goes, the vegetables are the most prevalent by weight in my nutrition, with approx. 870 g per day. Dairy products (685 g per day) and milk (424 g) follow, while on average I eat 284 g of meat and 130 g of fish per day. I also eat 273 g of fruit on average per day. All of that food then totals to some impressive yearly amounts: 317 kg of vegetables, 100 kg of fruit, 104 kg of meat, 48 kg of fishes, 250 kg of dairy products and 155 liters of milk.

Energy wise, I spend on average approx. 1680 kCal per day swimming, biking or running. With consuming 4700 kCal per day that means my current basal metabolic rate is around 3000 kCal, as my weight remained approx. the same.

Are there any other analyses you would like to see?
