Have I got Macros wrong?

    Can someone confirm for me?

    Been going over my diet working out Macros and I believe I have worked out my Macros in the wrong way.

    I did this:

    Total = 30g

    P = 10g = 33.3%
    C = 10g = 33.3%
    F = 10g = 33.3%

    Should it be this?

    Total Calories = 170

    P = 10g = 40 CAL = 23.5%
    C = 10g = 40 CAL = 23.5%
    F = 10g = 90 CAL = 53%

    I think it should be the second example and I have some recalculation to do.

    Thanks in advance

    The second calculation is correct. :D

    Thought so.

    That throws off my Macros from my thread in the beginners section. Lower percentages for Protein and Carbs, and much higher for fat.

    May need that Fat Free Greek Yoghurt to redress the balance!
