No, sir.

Let's say you weigh 200 lbs.

200 x 12 (meant 12, not 1.2 in previous post) = 2400 calories a day

This is for fairly sedentary people... don't take offense by that, I just don't know your daily activity scale.

Now we take 2400 and break it down further:

% cals g's
Protein 40 960 240
Carbs 40 960 240
Fats 20 480 53.33333333
2400
