I aim for a 40% carb, 30% protein, 30% fat diet. Your fat is a little high, but not too bad as long as you are emphasizing "healthy" fats like olive oil, fish, nuts, some diary, avocados, etc. While you might want to bring the fats down a little, it is your carbs and protein that look like they need to be adjusted -- your protein is pretty low. If you are working out, that low of a protein level will force your body to burn too high a percentage of its own lean muscle mass as it is also burns fat which, over time, is going to start to make weight loss harder as burning off your lean muscle mass drops your metabolism.
