I guess my question to you would be "Are you hungry all the time?". I find that when I get higher than 50% of my calories from carbs, I feel the urge to binge on more carbs. And that is especially true with grains, when I carb crash after eating grains, I'm starving like a hollow dog and will eat darn near anything that can be chewed up. Also when I work out really hard I need protein and plenty of it. So if you're hungry all the time and working out, you might be getting too many carbs, and if you're not hungry all the time and not working out, maybe your ratios are just fine.
