Do these breakdowns look like they'd do what they said they would?
Goal: 2 lbs/wk fat loss
Goal: More muscle, less fat
Goal: 1 lb/week muscle gain
hmm..it makes sense to me...
there are other factors to consider especially for the last one posted.
if I were to eat 41% carbs since I have a desk job I would gain nothing but fat and probably lose muscle because my body wouild not have enough protein to remain in a positive nitrogen balance...

I think as long as you are getting adequate protein and EFAs the macro ratios are not going to be that important. Sure you might see some differenc, but not enough to write home about:)
You can gain weight on a 40/30/30 diet and you can just as easily lose weight, assuming you are still getting in enough protein and EFAs.
