    Would this be the right amount of P/C/F

    If I need 1851 calories a day with a ratio of 40/30/30%.

    Would this be correct:

    40% of 1851 = 185g protein
    30% of 1851 = 138g carb
    30% of 1851 = 61g fat

    Thanks

    Thanks Prince, I see where I figured wrong now.




    HoldDaMayo, I decide to go with that ratio after I read some articles and I think I saw it on here to, that's what most people go with when trying to lose body fat. Is their a better ratio to go with to lower body fat?

    Thanks
