    Right ratio?

    So, this is what I consumed yesterday. Is it a good ratio? Should I increase/decrease anything? I'm 140lbs.

    Calories - 1673 (I know it's a little low...i'm working on increasing it)
    Protein - 201g
    Fat - 28g
    Carbs - 158
    Fiber - 16
    Sodium - 677

    I'm 29. Yea, I know. I'm increasing slowly. I used to only consume 1000 calories a day. I never really calculated my intake before so I had no idea I wasn't consuming enough.

    You need to increase fats. You are eating under 1700 cal a day, so I assume you're at the end of a cut? If you're trying to gain weight, you need to eat more.
