Enter your daily calorie intake, number of meals per day, and macronutrient percentages to calculate your nutrition intake using Dion’s Nutrition Calculator.

## Nutrition Calculation Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the net nutrition intake from your daily calories and macronutrient percentages.

Net Nutrition = (Calories * (Nutrient Percentage / 100)) / Meals Per Day

Variables:

- Net Nutrition is the amount of macronutrient you consume per meal (grams)
- Calories is your total daily calorie intake (kcal)
- Nutrient Percentage is the percentage of a specific macronutrient (protein, carbohydrates, fat) in your diet (%)
- Meals Per Day is the number of meals you consume in a day

To calculate the net nutrition intake, multiply your daily calories by the nutrient percentage and divide the result by the number of meals per day.
