Those macros I posted are just minimums, however; sometimes I feel like eating more bacon or more steak or whatever. I just hit those protein and fat goals and fill the remaining calories with whatever. Just seems easier that way.
Mine really vary on what I'm trying to do that day. I'm still trying to discover what my body really wants, too. Recently, I've found that a breakfast of a lot of fruit and just a bit of protein. Say, cantaloupe and prosciutto or smoked salmon with a side of a small mango/berries/whatever's in the house -- works really well on days that I'm going to work out for an hour or longer. Then, I'll come home and grill some lean meat and have some rice or a huge salad, and most likely a fruity, chocolatey dessert.
Those days usually end up being around 45-50% carbs, 30% protein, and 20-25% fats.
If I'm eating on a non-workout day, my macros end up being really close together with carbs, protein, and fats being in the 30-35% range. I can tell, though, that these macros do not lend a beneficial burst of energy for me like the extra carbs do!
I am just coming back to Primal after falling off the wagon majorly so right now I've been eating very low carbs and quite a bit of protein in order to gain some lean muscle and speed up the loss of fat (its been working well!).
So for this week and the next week I'm shooting at an average of 65%f/25%p/10%c
Sometimes I only get 20g or 30g of carbs but then other times I get 60g but it balances out over the week.
This isn't going to be a long term strategy though after probably 2.5 weeks of this I'll increase my carb intake back up to about 75-115g per day which is where I maintain best whilst still reducing body fat.
Typical routine is 4x a week lifting for one hour tops, then sit around all day eating chocolate, drinking coffee and playing video games in order to procrastinate actually Uni assignments ;D
What suits you doesn't seem too bad. I could maybe do that, should my love of chocolate die (so probably never)... but I would rather eat starches over fruit. IMHO they taste better - sweet potato fries are a lot more satifying and satiating than, say, and apple.
dont get pretained towards such things everytime as that would cause you a patient of cholestrol and high blood pressure
