I have had problems with insulin resistance so I try to stick close to the diabetic diet of 50/25/25 (c/p/f) but I skew a bit closer to 45/20-25/30-35. I think long term optimum for me would be 50/20/30 - I dont do a super low cal diet, so 20% protein should be plenty for me.

Fiber I aim for minimum of 30 g closer to 35 (which, since all of my carbs are from veggies, whole grains and some fruit, is easy)

30% of 1500 would be 450 cals which would be 112.5 g of protein or carbs. (sorry Susan...had to put that in...) on the other hand 30% of 1500 would be only 50g of Fat.
