How many grams of f/c/p should an adult that does not weight lift take in everyday? Say for someone weighing 150 lbs. Also what should be reduced to lose weight?

the food and drug administration RDA for a person on a 2000 cal diet is <65g Fat 300g Carbohydrate 54g Protein and on the 2500 cal diet <80g Fat 350g Carbohydrate 95g Protein
The general diet guidelines state rda of 59g for a 150lb person...

cutting = 12xbw calories (approx)

actual you have to calculate BMR+Activity then subtract 500-600 for one pound a week and 1200ish for 2 pounds a week..

the 12x rule pretty much applies well...
