    is this right ?

    4000 calories
    30% protein= 300 g
    60% carbs= 600g
    10% fat= 44g

    chiken breasts= 20% protein
    300 g protein = 1500 g of chiken breasts

    rice= 70% carbs
    600g carbs= 857 g of rice

    olive oil= 99% fat
    44 g fat=45 g of olive oil
    (not calculating the fat from meat above)

    yeah thats pretty right, but why don't go to 60-20-20 ? (asuming your an athlete/sportsman) 60 % carbs, 20 prot, 20 fat !
    what's your goal with this diet ? what's your sport ?

    Yeah, I agree, I'd up the fat even if you didn't down the protein.

    And 600g carbs is the most you'll need in a day, even if you up the calories. That's something of an upper threshold for repleting glycogen stores.
