Default 40-30-30 / 50-30-20

I honestly don't know, but I seem to remember seeing this ratio (40% carbs, 30% fat, 30% protein) a couple of places, so that's what I try to hit. I really don't know if that's right or not.

Here is some good info on nutrition, especially how it affects your workout, good fat vs. bad fat, etc.

EDIT: OK, this page recommends 50-30-20
