Cronometer is a free online tool (there is also an app for $2.99) that is essential in tracking your dietary intake. It is quite versatile and this is my guide to customizing it for a cancer fighting ketogenic diet.

  1. First sign up.
  2. Go into your settings ->Profile + Targets and set your weight, height, birthday and activity level.

You may want a weight goal as maintain, gain or lose depending on your needs.

3.  The box titled “Macronutrient Targets” should be adjusted as follows:

Select “Keto Calculator”

Under the Keto Program select “Custom”

Protein should be 0.8 grams per kilogram (unless specified by your doctor- I will go up to 1.2g/kg if there is a clear need). Calculate this by multiplying your weight in kilograms by 0.8

Turn off the athletic bonus

Put in 20g of carbs

In the Tracking Carbohydrates: Check exclude only on Fiber

4.  Finished!
