Those answers that you got are as an exact as you could possibly get, and you are not going to believe this, but protein does not make muscle, CARBS do.

I know what you are thinking, but it I was surprised too, but I found fitday when I was doing mega research on bodybuilding websites etc learning how they do cutting cycles.

The most important thing though, is what Micheal said, that you have tweek your macros, and there are things like calorie (aka carb) cycling which you can find some some threads on, to find your perfect ratio that causes you to drop weight.

In terms of your ratio, it would be depend on your work out intensity in the gym that would push these numbers higher in the carb portion.

I started with 50 to 60 carbs 20 to 30 prot, and 20 fat (or less).

Doing this with a super high intensity cardo and workout I lost fat and gained muscle at the same time, which is very difficult to do.

Since then, I have been backing down my calories and using various other methods to lean out.

I am almost in a 32 pant, down from 36 a year ago.
