Carbohydrate consumption varies widely depending on your goals, but a very general rule for protein is 1.5- 2 grams per pound of lean bodyweight. If you post your current goals and stats, we can be of better help.

It's hard to say a basic formula will work for everyone. Everyone responds differently. Do post your stats, and schedule and we can go from there.

You'd be wise to make sure not just "reckon" that your fats will be adequate and high enough, as w/a reduction in sugars (carbs), you must compensate with the right amount of fats, or you'll burn protein and lean mass for energy, leaving you a smaller, just-as-fat person, when you are finished. Not a very ideal scenario.

ok..tnx for replying swolecat, so could u advise me on calculating how much fats to injest when cutting carbs at the same time? and also, as i get down to a lower body weight each week, does this mean that my macros for the food i eat will be significantly lesser?

You'll want to lay out a sample diet for critique, as I'm extremely busy this holiday season w/tons of people wanting to get ripped come New Years and I'm bustin' my wazzoo to get all these people in shape and into my Transformation Dome.
Post somethin' and we can all comment.

Simple. Lets say you drop 50 grams of carbs (which equals 50x4=200 calories) then simply replace it with 200 cals of good fats. So add an extra 22 grams of good fats to your meals.

hmm...ic..ok..i'll work out a sample diet..for u all to critique..and tnx for ur info suspect...
