How much do you weigh?
Macros come down to getting at least the minimums for your weight. Protein is 0.6-0.8g/lb body weight, fat is around 0.45g/lb and the rest of the calories from whatever you want.

I would lower the protein a bit and up the fat to about 65-70g. I had to do that with mine too. Our macros are very similar.

How do you feel, look, and perform on the intake? It's mostly trial and error, but .3g/lb is a fairly safe marker for most individuals if you respond fine to it.

It's pointless to base your macro's of someone else. Read the stickies and calculate your own. You have no pictures so we can't estimate your body fat percentage. Can't be more specific without pictures so heres some starting numbers for you.

Fat: 70 - 85
Carb: 175 - 225
Protein: 175 - 205

Kcal: 2010 - 2485

Start with the higher end of those numbers then adjust accordingly to the desired fat loss rate.

I was just worried it was to low there's days were I dnt even hit 50 fat Try not to go under ~.25g/lb for any extended period of time (i.e., months) as it could potentially have some negative effects. But again it is entirely on how you feel, look, and perform.

That's what I was worried about. I'm gonna try to keep it at 60g I should be fine with that?? Health speaking.

So in terms of the recommended intakes, yes. However this does not ultimately hold true. Some require more fat and some require less for optimal health. As Iv'e been saying, it is ultimately trial and error based upon your bodies reactions.
