FatCarbProtein Percentage Ratio

Post by VJuice9 » Wed Mar 21, 2007 4:26 am

What is a good percentage ratio of fat-carbs-protein? I signed up with fitday.com to keep track of my calories and it calculates it in percentage format on a pie chart but i'm not sure whats a good percentage of the three? Anyone else have an idea?

Paleo diet
protein 19-35%
carb 22-40%
fat 28-47%

Zone
protein 30%
carb 40%
fat 30%

See what works for you it is all about experimentation. If you feel tired and a lack of concentration look at:
a) getting better quality carbs (fruit non starch vegetables)
b) increase fat with meals (nuts, fish oils)
c) adjust total number of carbs

Hope that helps

Cheers
