    With the new year and new keto-ers, I'd like for you to learn from my mistake. I used to pay close attention to my macro ratios. DON'T. They don't matter.
    You're looking at GRAMS. The only way those ratios the keto calculator spits out are accurate are if you eat exactly at the number of recommended calories every day. If you eat more, you may go over the amount of protein you should be eating in a day when you keep the ratio. If you eat less, you won't get enough protein.
    1) Meet your protein goal. Don't exceed it or come in under it.
    2) Stay under your carb limit.
    3) Use fat for the rest. You could have lower fat or higher fat days, depending on how much of a deficit you're working with. There is no number to hit.
    Do not stick to the ratios. You don't need to "get in enough fat." Ever.
    *Edit: I'm not saying "don't follow your macros." Macros are critical! I'm saying don't measure your macros in percentages. The RATIO doesn't matter. The grams are what count. The ratio is variable and therefore unreliable to use as your guideline.

    Carbs are a limit to stay below
    Protein is a goal to make you grow
    Fat is the fuel so you're not slow
    ...or something like that, credit /u/rickamore (I believe)
