I've been playing around with it, especially because I have been trying to avoid over compensating with carbs since I've become a pescatarian about four years ago. Since then, I haven't had any chicken, beef, or pork, and that used to help me lose weight faster because it kept me fuller. I have to just be more creative with my meals, and figure out how to stay full and maintain energy levels without eating so much of the bread, rice, and pasta that I love eating. I read a book that talked about macros, and I have never been very well versed with that stuff, so I thought I might try it out and think about it more. I'm so glad I've FINALLY encountered the concept of calorie deficit. This app is so helpful because I can actually keep track of it all.

It orderpens on what diet you eat.
Are you eating lots of vegetables which could make you want your carbs anything from low to high, do you want to eat lots of protein or high or low fat.
If you download carb manager it has a part to sort out what macros you might want to follow, and it does have more than just carb related help for working out your macros.
You can then follow the grams on mfp.
I've kept it on my phone for help to know how many macros grams I need to eat using mfp as mfp seems to only give %.
