Cronometer setting paleo macros?

Answered on August 19, 2014

Just curious if anyone knows why or how the folks at Cronometer arrive at their macronutrient ratio targets for paleo.

Cronometer-Paleo 15% protein 20% carbs and 65% fats

(i know you can customize your macros but i just found it odd that they go with those particular numbers considering there is no agreed upon macros for "paleo" per se)

just wondering~ T.I.A :)

I think over time people have realized that different macros work for different people, and different goals. But that's a good starting place.

It shows up in places. It's the macro specified by Jaminet in Perfect Health Diet. I think the first place I saw it was here:
