for cutting do you think this ratio 50%protein 20%carbs 30%fat is good?
my total cutting cals are 3215 for day at about 10% under maint. so that equals 1607cals from protein 643cals from carbs 964.5cals from fats. thanks

I'll pretend I'm Built for a second...*ahem* "why are using percentages to determine your macros?"

follow the guidelines of
1.5g protein per lb LBM
0.5g fat per lb
and then fill in carbs as necessary to meet your requirements

also you might want to look into carb cycling

Throw those ratio's right out the window, and follow what King stated.

How does one determine how many calories they need in a day, I usually just do trial and error and figure theres a better way.
