Just flicking through Jaminet's book again and in the first chapter he says: "Assuming that carnivores feed on ruminants whose tissue fats are 20% polyunsaturated, carnivore macronutrient rations are typically:
- <5% Carb
- 25% Protein
- 56% SUFA and MUFA
- 14% PUFA "
My macros, averaged over the last seven days from cron-o-meter:
- 3% Carb
- 22% Protein
- 61% SUFA and MUFA
- 14% PUFA
I'm not sure where the carnivore gets her 5% carb from, but mine comes from a bit of spinach and some avocado. Maybe I might be better off just eating dead animal...

Freshly dead animals still have glycogen stores.
By the way, the definitions are blurry anyhow. Deer eat mice and birds sometimes. Cows eat insects. Dogs eat plants (and poop).
