Is it preferable to get your calories in the form of fat or carbs?

Is it preferable to get your calories in the form of fat or carbs? I'm on a calorie deficit and my diet is looking about:

>30% protein
>30% carbs
>40% fat

Seeing as I'm simply cutting my calories to lose some weight does it make a difference, if it's simply calorie in < calorie out? Or is there a preferred balance of fat and carbs to optimise weight loss?

    For cutting body fat you want to eat zero carb.

    Carbs cause you to retain body fat and lose muscle.

      you will have a much better time with a calorie breakdown like this:
      >50% protein
      >35% carb
      >15% fat
      it doesn't need to be exactly this just keep it close. protein and carbs have a thermogenic effect so if you eat 100 calories from protein, you basically are only eating 90 calories. protein will satiate you and carbs will fill your stomach. you need to eat whole grains and lentils to maximize this type of diet. literally measure your cooking oil with a scale or tbs whatever you have. prioritize protein to hit 120+ grams per day, 20-30g fat, and then fill the rest with carbs. you can make a very healthy and satisfying meal with about 750 calories this way.

      ignore this moron and others disparaging carbs.

        Ignore carb shills like this guy.

        Carbs cause higher body fat and lower muscle mass at any body weight. Also carbs lower metabolism and increase hunger. Pic related.

    You want to keep carbs and protein high when cutting. You need glycogen to keep your lifts up. The most important thing is lifting the same amount of weight you were before you started your cut. You need carbs and glycogen to give you the best chance at this.

    As long as you're getting the required protien and fat then the only thing that matters after that is if your diet is one you can stick to.

    It doesn't matter, what matters is that your carbs and fats are junk, for carbs that means don't eat EMPTY carbs like white bread etc because it will spike your insulin, on fats the science isn't settled and anyone having a strong opinion on fats on this forum is just a idiot with bias due to his own way of eating. EVOO however seems to be universally accepted as good

      try a few weeks or months of low fat then a few weeks of low carb. whichever makes you feel and perform better try to stick with and see what happens. even if you get the "right" answer you might be an outlier. self experimentation is always necessary

        Tbh I'm feeling fine with the 30/30/40 split. I tend to gravitate towards animal fats and things out of preference. I'm rarely hungry. I'm averaging about 2200 cal per day, lifting 6 days a week and running 3 days a week

    Fat and protein from animals are where you get your nutrients and building blocks from the body, carbs are just an energy source and food for the microbiome, make of that what you will.

    1. It depends on the person. Some do better with fat, some with carbs, and some with protein.
    2. You can eat zero carb, but zero fat isn't a good idea due to hormones. Low fat is still possible though.
    3. Low carb can help lose visceral fat, although overall deficit is most important.
