You need to be a bit more specific as this depends on your diet and exercise goals. Atkins followers will have a large percentage of protein to carbs. Some go for a balanced approach of 1/3-1/3-1/3 protein/fat/carbs. I am good with 1/4-1/4-1/2. If your exercise goals include weight training with an emphasis on muscle building, then you would want a higher percentage of protein.

So, without knowing your goals, it is difficult to give you any useful advice.

I have read you should eat at least 90 gr of protein every day so you wont burn off muscle. If you combine ths with 50 gr of carbs and 20 gr of fat,you will loose. Hard to do tho

1,0-2,0 grams per kg body weight would be my way of calculating!
2 grams if you do a lot of exercise, 1,0 if you're more sedentary...
