It’s more about the percentage.

I would not be trying to follow some ideal set by others if I were you. Your optimal ratio will be different than someone else’s.

For someone more sedentary, it seems a higher percentage of fat in the diet is fine and may even be optimal. For those exerting themselves a lot, the opposite. Myself, I find 40% fat, 20% protein and 40% carbs to be best. I sit on my ass playing video games all day, though. I don’t strictly try to maintain this ratio either – it’s just how it falls when I listen to my body’s intuition and eat what I feel like most.
