I just joined the site and was wondering about the food stats what is good levels and what is bad? I would like to know what would be a good range to try to stick to.
My stats today were:
I am working towards losing my last bit of weight. Do these seem to be good numbers to you fitday users?

I used this to figure out all my info and then track on fitday.

Those numbers being good or not totally depends on your goal. You say "losing my last bit of weight." How much is that? Are you fit, fat, athletic, sedentary, superman, old, young, etc. We need some kind of stats to see if those numbers are appropriate.
From "last bit of weight" it sounds like you're already most of the way there and just trying to lean out the finishing 5 pounds or so maybe? If so, like jamie said, I'd assume your an athlete or at least athletic. So I'd say that you're not eating enough carbohydrate. if you're working out hard and not getting enough carbohydrate in your mouth I believe you are stressing your body. If I'm correct then cortisol would be high, perhaps chronically perhaps not, and that will hamper your leaning out progress. Trade in a lot of your fat intake for carb-intake.
What is working for me is a 40-40-20 protein-carb-fat breakdown. Consistent high energy, good work with the weights, good mental clarity, easy-to-do, keeping me lean while keeping me strong.
As you can see my ratios are quite far from yours. just pointing out that while all being paleo we can tinker with the macros A LOT.
