    macronutrient breakdowns ...

    I don't know if I didn't get enough sleep last night or what but I am having a major brain fart and search is not helping me.

    When talking about macronutrient breakdowns are we talking pure grams of each substance or calories derived from them?

    For instance a breakdown of:

    200g Protein
    120g Carbs
    80g Fat

    Would that be considered a 50/30/20 split or a 40/24/36 (based off calories per gram of each)? I'm thinking the later but I am just having all sorts of google/forum search problems today.

    Thanks in advance.
