The Real Ketogenic Diet Calculator
You will see that a lot of websites pretending the be the masters of the Ketogenic Diet that are trying to tell you that there is an EXACT amount of fat, proteins and carbohydrates that you need to take or your off! This is simply not true, what really matters is the ratio of Ketogenic to Anti-Ketogenic food that you ingest. That is why we had an engineer working on this calculator to make it fully customizable !!
The Right Macros
I know the ketogenic diet can be quite complex to follow at first if you don't know anything about calories. I created this calculator to help you figure out how many grams of each macro-nutrient you need everyday.
The nutrient intake on a ketogenic diet typically works out to about 70-75% of calories from fat, 20-25% from protein, and 5-10% from carbohydrate on a daily basis.
How To Use This Calculator
1. First you'll need to know how many calories you need daily. To figure this out, just use our Daily Calorie Intake Calculator bellow and follow the instructions. It will give you the amount of calories needed to maintain your weight, to lose 1 or 2 pounds per week or to gain 1 or 2 pounds per week.

2. Find Your Macros :
Just enter the amount of calories that you previously calculated. Then you could just see your results right away.
I've set this calculator to use 5% Carbs, 22.5% proteins and 72.5% fat by default, which will give you a K /AK ration of 1.85. Feel free to change the numbers for your needs as this calculator is fully customizable. All you need to do is make sure that your K / AK (Ketogenic to Anti-Ketogenic) ratio *last line of the calculator* is over 1.5!
Keep in mind that eating too much proteins, as I explain in details below the keto calculator, will produce glucose and will throw you out of Ketosis.
Since everybody is made different, you can keep track of your results and know if you're in ketosis using keto strips.
The theory used for this Keto Calculator
Some foods are ketogenic and some other food are anti-ketogenic.
Carbohydrates are 100% anti-ketogenic, meaning they completely turn into glucose once digested.
Fats are 90% Ketogenic, meaning 10% of the fat will turn into glucose in the bloodstream once digested.
Proteins are 46% Ketogenic and 58% anti-ketogenic, meaning that 58% of the proteins ingested will turn into glucose in the bloodstream.
Keep in mind that although the Ketogenic Diet ratio is absolutely required for the induction of the Ketogenic diet, but is not as important for the general dieting populatation.

How Do I Know I'm In Ketosis?
There is something on the market call Keto Sticks, you will have to urinate on it in order to find out the amount of Ketones (fat fragments) that's in you. Yes, that means that you're peeing fat!
Now that you know what you precisely need to eat daily, you can follow my guide on how to count your calories daily :Guide : How To Count Your Calories
