    Question More Fat? Or More Carbs?

    Hello all. First post here.

    Getting into fitness. I understand macronutrients and everything that goes with them.
    However, my question is this:

    For weight loss, what is better? A higher percentage of fats in my macro ratio? Or a higher percentage of carbohydrates?

    I was running a higher percentage of carbs in the beginning (first two weeks) and my workouts have always been energetic. But after switching to a higher percentage of fats, my workout today was sluggish. I wouldn't get dizzy, but I would experience a weakness creep over me after each set.

    I read somewhere that lower carbs are better for someone who is trying to lose quite a bit of weight (such as me, weighing 300lbs wanting to get down to 275lbs at least, for my initial goal).

    I have no issue fitting either ratio into my daily nutrition, I just really hate the way I felt today..

    SO.. lower carbs? or higher carbs? What is a good overall ration between the three macros for weight loss?
    Experiences with both? Comments, suggestions? Anything is welcome.

    Thanks

    Whichever you want... calorie deficit is what matters assuming you get enough protein and essential fats.
    The power of carbs compels me!

    This is what I figured, as long as calories coming in is less than calories going out then the result will always be weight loss.

    I guess I need to tinker with my macro ratios in terms of carbs vs fats, so I'm not feeling fatigued throughout my training.

    Yup... better to just think of it as grams of each and not a 'ratio' really... whatever you need to hit the calorie goal and makes you feel good. Can even vary day to day if you want.
