Well . . . kind of depends on how you look at it . . . my goal is more or less 25% fat / 50% carb / 25% protein from a 'gross-carbs' point of view. If you look at it from the angle of 'net-carbs' (i.e., subtract the fibre before figuring everything out); it is more like 27% fat / 45% carb / 28% protein.
PS -- although I don't use Fitday, I think I once discovered (from looking at other people's records) that they are 'doing' net-carbs. Because the mathematics doesn't work otherwise. Can anybody verify that?
And here we go for 2009 . . . Onward and Downward . . .

Reason: to add PS --
Meowee - I am giving numbers based on the % calories in my diet from each source. Since fiber carries no calories, the % of calories from carbs in my diet don't include fiber. The fitday calculation is % of total calories, so it also excludes fiber, which means its calculating your % of total calories based on net carbs.
I find I do best with no less than 30% protein, 40-45% carbs and no LESS than 25% fat...only 7% saturated. I also make sure I have at LEAST 35 grams of fiber a day. I am very strict with these except when I donate blood and on Saturdays which are my "off plan" days. Good luck!
