Default I am confused about this as well...

I have seen that formula before and tried to apply it. However, at my weight, that gives me about 17% protein for the day. That means either my carbs or my fat will be higher than what I want (using the 1.2 multiplier). I have seen that regular exercisers can go up to multiplying their weight in kg by 1.8, which would put me at about 28% protein, but I don't really feel comfortable being at the very high or very low end of anything .
