As you can see fitday does not specify at all because there are an abundance of eating plans and you need to follow the one that is best for you. Some people are eating low fat, some low carb, etc. Some favor a specific amount of protein.

Personally I have no restrictions other than staying in a 1200-1400 range on my calories. However, I have noted that if I eat too many carbs I am hungrier, I am less hungry if I eat more protein. Also make sure you are getting your fiber in. This is more challenging when you are cutting calories.

If your sole goal is to lose weight, you will need to work out what works best for you. For the long term you need a meal plan that is nutritious, that keeps you full and that you won't binge on.

There are RDA's for everything. You might want to check that out.

My 2 cents. I am no expert just doing this since Dec.
