One of The Best Balanced Diet Plans

To design a balanced diet plan with the given macronutrient and micronutrient distribution — Protein 30%, Fats 30%, Carbohydrates 30%, and Vitamins & Minerals 10%—you can follow this outline:

Daily Caloric Intake

First, determine your daily caloric needs based on your age, gender, weight, height, and activity level. For this example, let's assume a daily intake of 2,000 calories.

Macronutrient Breakdown

- **Protein (30% of 2000 calories)**: 600 calories from protein

- **Fats (30% of 2000 calories)**: 600 calories from fats

- **Carbohydrates (30% of 2000 calories)**: 600 calories from carbohydrates

- **Vitamins & Minerals (10% of 2000 calories)**: 200 calories from foods rich in vitamins and minerals

Macronutrient to Gram Conversion

- **Protein**: 1 gram of protein = 4 calories

- **Fats**: 1 gram of fat = 9 calories

- **Carbohydrates**: 1 gram of carbohydrate = 4 calories

Daily Grams Needed

- **Protein**: 600 calories / 4 = 150 grams

- **Fats**: 600 calories / 9 = 67 grams

- **Carbohydrates**: 600 calories / 4 = 150 grams
