Our daily needs for nutrients is different, but the DRVs and RNIs are the recommended amounts for the average person.
- 10-20% of our daily calories should come from protein.
- Less than 10% of our daily calories should come from saturated fat.
- 60-70% of our daily calories should come from monounsaturated fat and carbohydrates.
- 50-55% of our daily calories shoud come from carbohydrates.
We’ve created a Help sheet to explain the terms DRV, RNI and GDA which are also found in the Glossary section of the program.
