## Know how many calories you eat (or what you want to eat) each day.

1. First, you need to know how many calories you eat (or what you want to eat) each day.

2. Next, determine your ideal ratio of carbohydrates, fats and proteins.

4. Finally divide your calorie amounts by its calorie-per-gram number.

This can be done for a maximum of 10 points possible.

Here is an example: for 2,300 calories per day with 50% carbs, 25% fat and 25% protein

Carbs: 2,300 x 0.50 = 1,150 calories

Fats: 2,300 x 0.25 = 575 calories

Protein: 2,300 x 0.25 = 575 calories

Then calculate the actual gram amounts:

Carbs (four calories per gram): 1,150 divided by 4 equals 287.5 grams of carbs.

Fat (nine calories per gram): 575 divided by 9 equals 63.8 grams of fat.

Protein (four calories per gram): 575 divided by 4 equals 143.75 grams of protein
