I get this question literally hundreds times a day: how does one solve the equation for proper ratio of carbs, fats and protein, in relation to proper caloric prescription?
John Meadows has been working on that problem for a few decades.
He actually, in collaboration with Frank Mingst, came up with this gem: Adjusting Meal Plans Made Simple.
He could have also called it Adjusting Meal Plans for Certified Morons. Really. It makes solving the equation a cinch if you follows their rules. Rule based books work, if the rules are right, and… if they are followed.
There is almost never any reason to reduce calorie intake from protein. So don’t.
I highly recommend it, because they made it very simple and dummy proof. Not convinced? Paul Carter understood it
