Macronutrient breakdown while on

Hi to all…apologies in advance, if this question sounds so elementary…but I am starting the Don’t Diet diet and have figured out my daily caloric intake on the program using JB’s figures, but I just don’t know how to divvy up these calories (2700) into a macronutrient ratio. Right now, I’m at 160 lbs (73 kg) which at 15%BF comes to 62kg LBM. I hope somebody might be able to help me out with this. Thanks in advance for your advice.

Here’s a quote from JB’s Massive eating article:

In my experience, individuals who have high insulin sensitivity maximize their muscle to fat ratio on diets that are high in carbs and lower in fat (50% carbs, 35% protein, 15% fat). Those with moderate insulin sensitivity tend to do best on diets that are more isocaloric (30% carbs, 40% protein, 30% fat). And those with poor insulin sensitivity do best on diets that are low in carbs (50% protein, 35% fat, 15% carbs).
