Personally, I tell my clients/friends/anyone who asks me to think of macros on a weekly average instead of daily. It's ok if they miss 20g of protein one day and increase the next, or a 100 calories here and there. After a couple weeks start to get better at hitting each macro on a daily basis.
We are pretty much saying the same thing just going about it a different way.
If your macros are in check then your calories are and if you're calories are in check your macros probably are.

What do you mean exactly when you say carbs and fats are energy sources? Protein can be an energy source as well. Obviously you can't just eat all you want of them. Just trying to see where you're coming from on that.
