The way I look at it is...the more specific the diet goals, the more precision needed.

Protein levels stay pretty much the same regardless of goals (give or take a minimal amount of grams), and fat intake for most bodybuilders is 20-30%, so everything else generally comes down to carb manipulation or cycling.

That's as deep as I care to get. Beyond that I let the bodybuilders take over.

Regarding protein, the lifter's metabolism, weight, etc. have to be considered. If a hardgainer requires 4000 calories per day, limiting him to 150 grams of protein and 20% fat isn't the easiest way for him to gain weight. Carb overkill...
