In brief: It depends
If you follow a zone diet which is what i recommend, then 130 grams of carbs (complex grains, fruits and veggies), 98 grams of lean protein, 42 grams of fat (plant and fish based preferred).

In brief: Depends
Carbs have 4 kcal, proteins have 4 kcal, fats have 9 kcal and alcohol has 7kcal.
You can divide these depending on how many grams that you consume. It is important that to make sure that you are getting the proper nutrient, which is not just calories. You should consult your pcp and set up a proper exercise and diet plan.
