I am currently in “cutting” phase of my workout routine and consuming a lot of lean protein and low fat foods. I try very hard to maintain a 20/40/40 ration (fat/carbs/protein) however due to the types of food I eat I am always low on my carb intake. I try to consume 1mg of protein per body pound during this time and my percentages usually come out 17/27/56.
