I'm 71 and here to learn how to use MFP primarily to monitor my nutrition with a special interest in keeping an eye on getting enough daily protein. Also 5 a day but I can't see how the app will work for that?
My first problem is that NHS guidelines are that daily reference nutrients should be based on 50% carbs, =<35% fat and around 55g protein. I can't get the app to accept being balanced for this. to achieve near 55g the app forces either fat or carbs to exceed their NHS guidance level. What's the answer? My guess would be to stick to fat at =< 35% and let the carbs be what they want to be.
Am I actually thinking too much about this, I'm wondering. All I need to do is set the protein to the level I want because I want feedback as to how close to it I am. If it forces one of the other things to have a high level I'm not going to force myself to eat too much of it!
