    It certainly doesn't freak me out, I tend to go for macros myself, not just percentages. I aim for 50-100g of carb, not quite 1g of protein per pound of lean body weight, and leave the rest up to fat. I don't even really track calories any more, I find that some days are very high, and some days are very low, it all evens out and as long as I feel good, have energy and keep dropping weight, I don't worry. If I lack energy or feel poorly, its usually because I've let carbs get out of whack - I'm either eating way too many because I've let sugar creep in, or not enough and I get craving-y, crabby and tired. Less than 50g carb, I feel not so great and weight comes off slower for me.

    Looks fine to me. I would go a little higher protein if you are trying to put on muscle or are very active, but I don't see a problem. Fat % can be all over the place depending on your energy needs.

    When I was losing weight, I did about 45% each of fat and protein with only 10% carbs but only you can determine the "sweet spot " for you.
