For maintenance it's fairly similar. If you're not necessarily trying to preserve muscle and not lifting heavy weights then you can probably get away with 0.4-0.7g/lb bodyweight protein, then the same formula applies.

1500 calories, 150lb example:
- 0.6g/lb = 90g protein = 360 calories
- 0.4g/lb = 60g fat = 540 calories

1500 - 360 - 540 = 600 calories left for carbs, which is 150g

The partitioning works out to:

24% protein
36% fat
40% carbs

Coffee - to quit or not to quit?
I spilled my venti americano all over my leg this morning. That burned Sad

If I had had a coffee before ordering I wouldn't have been so groggy and wouldn't have burned myself. So, you heard it here folks, not drinking coffee is dangerous.

Depends how you want to partition your other macros. If you're trying to build/maintain muscle, aim for 1g/lb bodyweight. Aim for 0.4-0.5g/lb of fats. Fill in the rest with carbs.

150lb example, 1700 calorie example:
- 1.0g/lb = 150g protein = 600calories
- 0.4g/lb = 60g fat = 540 calories

1700 - 600 - 540 = 560 calories left for carbs, which works out to 140g.

How accurate is "Calories Burned", really?
Could be that, or you are overestimating your activity. I mentioned this in another post, but assume sedentary for activity, regardless of how much working out, walking, driving, whatever you do in the week.

Amount of calories
I would recommend you use the sedentary value for activity. We're really good at overestimating how much activity we actually perform during the week, so it's best to just assume zero and go from there. Worst case your estimate is more accurate.

Best case you're actually way more active and end up losing weight at a faster rate.

Win win.
