This works out to about equal ratios of calories from fats, protein, and carbs.

The actual nutritional targets I aim for are:

50g of fat minimum
40g of fiber minimum
150g of protein minimum
100g of sugar MAXIMUM

I run a deficit of about 500 when my weight creeps up, and otherwise eat at maintenance.

4a-healthy-bmi's top tips

1.If I get a craving, if I hit it with protein, it goes away. If I have sugars or starches I tend to want MORE sugars and starches.
2.You will need to work with a food tracker to balance your overall nutrient targets with total calories. Eating this way doesn't leave much room for processed foods, fatty meats, or starchy things.
3.I like protein supplements. 150g per day is hard to get without them.
