I was wondering what the breakdown of food daily is that we should have to help lose weight. Like how many carbs, fats, proteins. I keep hearing of 30/30/40 is how people should go, but don't know what it is.

I'm supposed to have an 1800 calorie plan to lose weight with the exercise I'm doing (fitness videos/running, etc). So I need a break down, because I have no idea where to start. Please help me by giving me idea's of foods, etc. Thanks.

30% carbs, 30% fats, 40% proteins.

That's a pretty low carb diet, I follow a pretty similiar way of eating- I do the south beach diet and it's the only thing that has helped me lose weight because I have PCOS and insulin resistance issues.
