I eat low carb, and my ratio for today is 27/63/10.. protein, fat, and carbs in that order.
Nirerin gave you SP ranges. If you just want to add protein, and cut carbs, you might want a 30/50/20 ratio. Fat will be higher, as well as protein, since they usually came together, and 20% carbs, should be low enough to get some weight loss, but still leave you most options available. Cut out all sweets, and pop obviously, but limit, or eliminate bread, noodles, potato, corn etc also. You can eat a lot of fruit and vegetables, but watch the carb counts, and sugars.
It might be better to figure out what 20% of your calories are.. 300 for 1500. for example, then divide by 4, and aim for 75 g of carbs. Fill in the other 1200 with lean meats and vegetables, eggs, fish, and fowl. For other carbs have some beans, or salad. and see what happens.
You may have carb flu for 3-4 days, but by Day 5 you should be dropping weight, and have extra energy. I would suggest not eating any frankenfoods, or bars, shakes, diet food that says it is low carb. Try it with real food for 1 month. See if it is right for you.
