I've Tweaked the Diet Calculator to Better Calculate Fat at Moderate Carb Intake Levels

To better handle the recommendations for people eating over ketogenic levels, I've changed the logic the calculator uses. It now computes what percentage of total maintenance calories are represented by your selected carbohydrate intake.

If your carbs are more than 30% of all calories, the calculator now recommends that you eat 30% of calories as protein and computes the fat calories and grams so that

Fat Percent = 100 - (Carb percentage + 30%)

This works a lot better for people of all different sizes than the previous version.

You'll find it here:

Thanks for your very helpful feedback.

And yes, I know I need to find an URL for the low carb site, but the ones I want are all taken.
