Protein and fat intake should be tracked not as a percentage but based on your body's size, in grams. Usually 1 g per 1 lb of lean body mass, as described here. And it doesn't matter if every *meal* you have is balanced for macros--what matters is the overall picture for the day.

I agree as well. It is a complimentary additive that helps the overall picture.

Hello!

I created a browser extension that adds a pie chart to the (website) food diary. It works on both Mac and PC and is available for free in the Chrome Web Store.

With your feedback, I'd love to make it a better tool. Thanks!

I want the pie chart too please - in fact when I used to be on here, a couple of years ago, there was a pie chart. Now we just have the lists - please listen to us and add it - thankyou. Hope you at least answer us.

I agree

the pie chart is nice to glance at and while it will show you how your intake is balanced across the 3 groups, it doesn't give the whole picture. You may hit the % right, but what if you've missed your goal in grammes by similar amounts on each? The pie chart will look correct, but the bar chart will show you missed your targets.

Ideally, I'd like to see a daily bar chart, with 3 ghost or transparent bars in the back ground denoting the goal in g for the 3 groups and then overlaid in the foreground, solid bars showing how much you've actually consumed. I guess this is similar to 100% stacked bar charts. Shouldn't be any more difficult to implement.

It could even go hand in hand with the pie chart so you can quickly see how off your targets you are.

Please do something about this - it's much nicer to view it on a larger screen instead of squinting at my phone

I agree! Keeping track of macros so I love seeing it on my phone. Here I was thinking I just couldn't find where the pie charts were on the website...

Soo the website bar charts show the total but do not show a comparative view of macronutrients per day. They are broken out as (for example) Carbohydrates vs. day.

So the bar chart argument sucks. I want to compare ratios. And I don't want to do the math myself when this functionality already exists for MFP just not on the website.

Add a pie chart report already!! jeez.

I, too, would love to see the pie chart on the website. I could then print the results and discuss them with my dietician/nutritionist.

I can clearly see that gremlins is larger than orcs on the PIE CHART but struggle more with it on the bar chart. Everyone's perception abilities differ.

Yes, the add-on is for Chrome only. I chose the Chrome browser because it was the most popular browser available on all platforms.
