    The reading I have done has said - make sure you get enough protein for your weight, make sure you don't get too many carbs depending on your goals (50-100g/day for fat loss, no more than 150g for maintenance I think), and then make up the rest of the calories with fat. I eat a lot of fat!

    Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a hard and fast rule on protein, everyone seems to advise something different. Mark Sisson says:

    "At a minimum you need .5 grams of protein per pound of lean mass/per day on average to maintain your “structure”. If you are moderately active you need .7 or .8, and if you are an active athlete you need as much as 1 gram of protein per pound of lean mass." - note this is lean mass which means you need a rough idea of your body fat %. :)
