I try to maintain the ratio of 60% protein, 30% carbs (mostly from sweet potato and protein shake) and 10% fat. For more details on the exact diet, its on this post. wannabebigforums.com/showthread.php?t=96554

But along the way I've started eating a lot more chicken so my ratio is now at 68 14 18. What do you recommend to kick those other numbers back to the right percentages?

eat 8 % less protein, 16% more fat, and 8% less fat.

I don't know what this diet is, but you sound like you don't have any power over what you eat. Personally I don't know why that ratio is important as long as you eat at least 1gram/lbm in portein and fill out the rest of your caloric quota with good fats and some protein.

Go read the Wannabebig articles. They'll tell you what to eat and how much of it.

Never was a fan of a % split in diet since it's pointless in the end.
Just stick to corresponding your Protein and Fat to your LBM.

Basing diets around a set percentage doesn't work. Percentages lie to you. I'm making an assumption on the amount of calories you're eating, but I would say that you drastically need to up the amount of fat you're eating.

Carbs are way to low bro. In a overly simplified manner, they help burn fat and build muscle.

Carbs burn fat? News to me. :/

I eat less than 60g of carbs a day. Are you familiar with UD2.0 or any carb cycling for that matter?

I'm not familiar with carb cycling. Can you explain it or point me to an article?

That is the site of one of the most respected guys in the business, Lyle McDonald.

Haha you also have much more control over your diet than the average person. My point was that using percentages can be misleading to people, depending on the level of calories one takes in. Though the percentages are the same, the level of protein and fat in a 1000 calorie diet is far different from the levels found in a 10,000 calorie diet.

Slim is much more well read than the two of us. I think he was just questioning the poor way I stated my point.

Diet link in my sig explains a very simple approach to carb cycling.
