Although there is not an agreement on a perfect ratio of nutrients in a lean diet, a healthy diet should include about
30 percent protein, 55 percent carbohydrate, and 15 percent fat.
Unfortunately, many people eat far too much fat and carbohydrate and not enough protein. A simple guide for eating a more healthy ratio of nutrients is eating less simple carbohydrates or sugars, eating more fresh fruits and vegetables, eating less oils and fats, and increasing the consumption of healthy low-calorie sources of protein. Of these lean diet choices, finding optimal levels of healthy proteins may be the most challenging.
