    Fat is a little low. I do not think the ratios of macronutrients are that important provided you are consuming 1g of protein per lb of body weight and adequate fats (in particular essential fatty acids).

    set protein to 1oz/lbs of bodyweight. then i'd recomend get at least 100 carbs and 50 fats, and set the rest how you like it.

    why is your protein intake related to your carbs? i personally would up the fats (good fats obviously) to at least 20% to 30% of your cals and drop the carbs a bit. but that's what works better for me.

    latinomasfino I wouldn't put much stock in your tanita body fat readings. Worry about whether things are visually improving instead.

    so you are eating more fat and less calories????

    i think 1700 is way too low, personally. the 2000-2200 sounded much better but then i don't really know what you used to eat.
