What is my Recommended Daily Intake?

FatSecret calculates your Recommended Daily Intake or RDI to give you a daily calorie target to achieve your goal weight.

The RDI calculation is based on your unique factors including your age, weight, height, gender and activity level.

Once your RDI is set, all foods, as well as your food diary and diet calendar are displayed with your RDI in mind.

Calorie Breakdown:

Fat (32%)
 
Protein (20%)
Example

You also get to see the calorie breakdown between fat, carbs and protein for all foods, and your food diary and diet calendar information. This can really help people who are targeting particular nutrition splits as part of their diet.

You can recalculate or change your RDI at any time and your future progress will then be based off your new RDI.
