About this application:

() Nutrition and energetic facts shown in this application have been calculated according to the published by the Spanish Agency of Health and Nutrition in the AESAN / BEDCA, Spanish Database of Food Composition v1.0 (2010). Keep in mind that the amount in grams of fuet sausage you choose refers to the edible part of this food.

(1) Daily Caloric Needs, DCN - Calorie requirements that we show here follows the established by FAO/WHO/UNU Expert Consultation on Human Energy Requirements. Although there are others, the FAO / WHO / UNU method is the most up-to-date.

(2) Nutrition scheme - The calculation of the necessary calories according to macronutrients follows a basic scheme of: 20% proteins; 30% fat; And 50% carbohydrates. That is, a standard generic ratio, but: Do you want to lose weight, or just the opposite? Or are you more interested in gaining muscle volume? This ratio will vary depending on each specific case and interest (see final note). And, moreover, it is best that you attend to quality rather than quantity, taking into account the nature of the nutrients contained in this food. Because it is not the same to obtain carbohydrates of glucose or fructose that of starch or polyols. Also not all fats are the same, we sholud not equate saturated fatty acids with unsaturated or hydrogenated (the unhealthy Trans fats). And something similar happens in the case of proteins, not all contain the same variety and quantity of essential amino acids, nor therefore have the same biological value.

(3) Caloric consumption - The calculation of energy consumption according to the activities is still established by the doctor Francisco Grande Covián.

() Remember: All this information has a purely orientative character. The best advice we can give you is that, to design your ideal diet, ask to doctors, dietitians and nutritionists.
