Nutrients Feedback

The recommended daily intakes are set to meet or exceed the needs of most healthy individuals.

If your intake is the same or higher than the recommended amount, then it is probably adequate. There are no proven benefits to consuming more than the recommended amounts. With sodium, in particular, it is best to find ways to reduce intake.

If your intake is below the recommended amount on this day that doesn’t necessarily mean you are not meeting your needs on an ongoing basis. To get a better picture of your usual eating habits, repeat eaTracker on several different days.

For most people, eating a variety of foods from the 4 food groups of Canada’s Food Guide will provide the necessary nutrients, however vitamin and mineral supplements are recommended in some situations. For example, women of childbearing age and people over the age of 50 will need certain supplements.

Large amounts of some supplements may be harmful, so only take the recommended amounts.

Calorie Intake

My calorie (energy) intake: 4419 kcal

Your Estimated Energy Requirements (EER): 13687 kcal

The Estimated Energy Requirement (EER) is an estimate of the number of calories you need in a day to maintain your current weight.

It is based on your age, gender, weight, height, and whether you are pregnant or breastfeeding; and also on the activity level you selected in your profile.

Calories from protein, fat, carbohydrates and alcohol

Approximately 0% of your energy (calories) comes from alcohol. Alcohol can provide significant extra calories to your day. Alcohol is not an essential part of healthy eating, it adds calories but no other nutrients.

Energy Balance

Your body weight should stay the same if the calories from your food and beverages balance the calories you use for daily living and additional physical activities.

Today you had fewer calories than you need to maintain your current weight.

If you always have less calories than your EER or if you increase your daily activity level from what you reported in your My Detailspage, you will likely lose weight.

If you become more or less active than when you started eaTracker you may want to go back to the My Details area to change your activity level. Your estimated energy requirement (EER) is based on the activity level you selected.

How can you achieve a healthy weight?

Eating well and keeping active every day is an important way to help you achieve a healthy weight.

Check your body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference (WC) to see if you have a healthy body weight.

If you are trying to achieve a weight loss goal, you may want to increase the number of calories you burn by 500 calories per day or eat 500 calories less each day or do a combination of both to achieve a weight loss of about a pound a week. A pound of fat stores about 3500 calories.
