I would go 40/40/20 or maybe even try an isocaloric diet which is 33/33/33...

45% protein
40% carbs
15% carbs

too much pro? carbs?

I think 0% fat is not a good idea. Maybe try replacing those last 15% carbs with fat :D .

Joking aside, I think you need to up the fat to at least 25%. Just my 2 cents.

Yes, fat doesn't mean it will be turned into fat in your system. In reality, you need fat intake in order for your body not to make fat of its own.

Fat is good. I'd say 25% at least.

I agree.
