    On a calorie deficit it's often necessary to eat a bit more protein than is recommended on this site. The site defaults are 50% Carbs, 30% Fat and 20% Protein.

    You can use this calculator to calculate your protein needs for your situation, https://examine.com/nutrition/protein-intake-calculator/

    Keep in mind that if you are significantly over-weight the calculations may get skewed.

    Really, for any decent replies to this question we need a lot more info, like, age, height, weight, gender, activity, goals (weight loss, gain, recomp?) exercise?
