So if you track cals your ratio of your macro's can end up way off.
I appreciate what you are trying to teach us, but not sure I understand.

190 g x 4 =760
114 g x 4 = 456
34 g x 9 = 306
total calories = 1522

If the macros are 100% identical, how can the calories be different? I am not trying to cause trouble, I am just not understanding. How you are arriving at your conclusion?
