    There isnt enough of a difference between those macros to make a difference. Either way, macros are not important. Simply eat in a deficit and eat 1gm of protein per lb of LBM. The rest of your calories can be split between carbs and fat however you'd like.

    1) As said above, those ratios are too close to make any difference.
    2) Are you listing it as P/C/F? That's usually how people do it, but you have less carbs than fat and most diets I've seen are the other way around (except Keto).

    The second one is better because the first doesn't add up to 100.

    ^This.

    Ratios are meaningless.

    1.) Figure out your maintenance calories then subtract 300-500 cals (ecto-endo); adjust accordingly until you achieve your desired rate of fat loss.

    Link for maintenance:

    http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=2331301

    2.) Protein 1g per pound of bodyweight based on stats (weight, Bf%)
    3.) Fats (inclusive of mono-, poly, omega-3) at 0.3-0.4g per pound of bodyweight;
    4.) Whatever calories remain after totaling calories from protein+fats can be applied to carbs if you prefer; or can be applied to more protein/fats
