Hey guys. I was just wondering when someone refers to a 40/30/30 ratio if it refered to the grams of each macronutrient or the calories?

It refers to the calories. It's not about grams cuz 1 gram of fat has 9 calories while 1 gram of protein as well as 1 gram of carbs both have 4 calories. It would refer to grams if 1 gram of fat had 4 calories.
