    I have a fast metabolism, weigh 165, and I'm eating 3000 calories a day. My current ratio is 25F/35C/40P and I pretty sure my carbs are to low.

    What should I change my ratio to? I have no problem bumping up the total calories to make 1.5 x my body weight in protein if necessary.

    So you're eating about 250g of carbs then? That should be fine but you could always do a zone type ratio where you're eating 300g carbs/ 225g protein/ and around 100g fat.

    Yes, right around 250g. I'll do the zone type ratio for a while and see how it effects me, thanks.
