The Detailed Results Explained

Detailed Results

A generic view of a river with flying swans

Undoubtably there is a lot of information in Detailed Results, this is the point of the calculator.

Without this level of detail we are back to the position of saying "eat less and exercise more."

Detailed Results

The day's food and exercise in detail.
I think that these details rows are mostly self explanatory, there is an option on the data collection form to hide the entries overnight and to have more or less detail.


Column Meaning
Day The calculation day, starting at 1.
Time The calculation time, starting at 00:00
Total Body Weight (kg) Body weight as normally used when talking about weight.
Glycogen Water Weight (g) The weight of water that attached to glycogen.
Glycogen Weight (g) The weight of glycogen.
Gylcogen Calories (kc) The number of calories available from glycogen.
Alcohol (mg/100ml)/(kc) The blood alcohol level and the number of calories that are available as a result of metabolising it.
Ketones (kc) The number of calories available from ketones. The current version of the calulator doesn't support ketosis
Protein (g) Grams of available protein.
Activity Description of eating, digestion, exercise and bodily processes.


The activites are colour coded in the following way.

Meaning

Digest fat within a food item
Digest carbohydrate within a food item
Digest protein within a food item
Digest alcohol from the blood stream
Create ketones from body fat
The cost of digesting food
A warning not an actual body activity
A note not an actual body activity
Exercise - Cycling
Exercise - Running
Exercise - Background walking
Exercise - Basal energy expenditure, the energy that was used to simply keep you alive
Exercise - Recovery expenditure, the cost of repairing the damage done by exercise.
Vomit - Currently only excessive alcohol can cause vommiting


The messages that the activity column can contain are shown below in alphabetic order.

Message Meaning
Background walking abandoned as blood alcohol over 120mg/100ml Too drunk.
Basal usage 63kc fat/glycogen 50kc/13kc, protein 2.2g The energy used to stay alive, this tends to be constant thoughtout the day. Once exercise recovery is introduced into the calculator it will change.
B/G walking 0.08 miles, used fat/glycogen 4kc/2kc The energy used by the walking that people do as part of their daily routine, around the office, to the bus etc. This is regarded as a background value, so it is displayed even it can't possibly be taking place, for example during a cycle ride.
Blood alcohol level is at serious risk of death, simulation abandoned the simulation has been abaondoned as it is difficult to model then body at these blood alcohol levels
Blood alcohol level is at serious risk of coma A warning message
Blood alcohol level is so high as to cause vomiting A warning message
Blood alcohol level is so high as to affect balance during exercise A warning message
Blood alcohol level is over the English, Welsh, Scottish and NI driving limit A warning message
Blood alcohol level is over the Scottish driving limit A warning message
BMR disabled for testing The calculator can have the processes that support life turned off to make it easier to understand a single food item or exercise. This is not avaialble to users normally.
Cycling abandoned as blood alcohol over 150mg/100ml The average power consumed by the cycling and where the needed energy came from.
Cycling at 166 watts, used fat/glycogen/ketones 277kc/150kc/143kc The average power consumed by the cycling and where the needed energy came from. Ketones or alcohol are automatically used as a replacement for glycogen, they aren't requested so do they don't show a requested/used pair only the used.

If the exercise used no ketones or alcohol then they will not be shown.
Cycling at 166 watts, used fat/glycogen/ketones ratios (requested/used) 49%/49% 51%/26% 25% The average power consumed by the cycling and the ratios of where the needed energy came from. The requested is fat/glycogen is the calculated balance, the needed values are the values actually used. They will be different when there is insufficient glycogen, excess ketones or alcohol in the system.

Ketones or alcohol are automatically used as a replacement for glycogen, they aren't requested so do they don't show a requested/used pair only the used.

If the exercise used no ketones or alcohol then they will not be shown.
Cycling bodily efficiency 25% and 25g of body fat used How many grams of body fat were used to supply the energy and the overall bodily effiency applied to the energy use. This is the diffence between calories needed by the exercise and the calories used by the body to provide that energy.
Cycling cancelled as the Average ride speed must be less that 1.25 times the Average Speed For A 60 Minute Ride The questions "Average Speed For A 60 Minute Ride" and "Max Speed For 5 Minutes" are used to calculate how hard the cycle ride was for you rather than as average of everybody. The values that you entered for this one ride are so much greater than the control questions meaning that the calculator can't calculate the recovery load.
Cycling completed, 161kc of glycogen used and 196kc fat used, totalling 357kc The cycling has completed and the total energy used.
Cycling exercise calculated as VO2 max p%, then user adjusted to n%" The calculator calculated that the cycle ride was at p% of VO2 max and this was adjusted to n% because of a user specified adjustment. This will affect the exercise recovery calculations significantly.
Cycling requested fat/glycogen ratio 55%/45%, used fat/glycogen ratio 55%/45% The ratio of fat and glycogen needed to power the exercise, most of the time this will available but occasionally there will be insufficent glycogen.
Cycling speed reduced to 10mph due to glycogen depletion The glycogen level is so low that the [exercise] has been reduced to a walk, hit the wall.
Cycling started A note that a cycling activity has begun.
Digest [Food item] absorbed 6g of protein Amount of protein extracted from the food item during the time period. This is not usually the total amount that will ultimately extracted.
Digest [Food item] body's glycogen capacity reached, only 81kc converted to glycogen Although there are carbs still to be digested they can not be converted to glycogen as the body's limit has been reached. Instead they will be converted to fat.

[Food item] glycogen exhausted only 12kc available from glycogen Body' glycogen is now exhausted, sometimes refered to as The Wall or Bonking, this will have effect on exercise.
[Food item] rejected as the body is full Too much food has been scheduled to be eaten.
Glycogen level has dropped to zero, the simulation doesn't support this as it is very extreme situation, simulation abandoned In reality starvation diets introduce all sorts of special processes to keep the body alive, these processes aren't modelled as they would be used very rarely. Outside of let's see what happens to the calculator if we ........
Ketosis generated g of ketones worth 5kc In reality starvation diets introduce all sorts of special processes to keep the body alive, these processes aren't modelled as they would be used very rarely. Outside of let's see what happens to the calculator if we ........
Metabolised 21.2g of blood alcohol to 55kc and 0g of body fat Alcohol has been removed from the blood stream and this has yielded the specified amount of energy of which some/none has been converted to the fat. The energy value is left floating in the blood stream and will be used in preference to any other energy source.
Metabolise blood alcohol used 9.4kc The cost of metabolising alcohol.Unlike normal food items, alcohol is not tracked once it enter the blood stream as this would be too far from reality to be meaningful.
Nothing vomited as stomach is empty The blood alcohol level is so high that vomitting was attempted but there was noting to vomit.
