Lots of people go by the 40 carbs/30 protein/30 fats ratio.
But the carbs that I eat really matter to me. Fruits and veggies are loaded with carbs. These carbs I have no problem with. The carbs from the flour, pasta, rice, sugar, etc - THOSE are the ones that will stall my weight loss - for many reasons.
The best way for me to balance my carbs/protein/fats is to count my calories, sticking to wholesome foods - avoiding fatty, greasy, processed, sugar-y *white* flour-y ones. And getting in Fiber and/or protein at every meal and snack. The numbers balance themselves out.
So don't worry about getting too many carbs in. Just make sure the majority of them are the "right" ones.
