Hello first post, Im Jeff and i have been working out about 6 months, maybe 4 months on a hard schedule. Mainly just compound lifts as i feel thats the best bang for my buck as a newbie. Im 32 years old and just decided i wanted a better body overall, Not looking to compete but would love to have "abs".
I started at above 30% body fat, 5'11 230 pounds (wish i took pics but i was embaressed lol). I am now 182 #'s and i think im somewhere between 18-22% body fat, having a hard time determining, electronic scale says 16% but i know those are crap so it tells me nothing really.
I am on a CKD at the moment taking in about 2400 calories a day, 165 Grams of Protein, 180 Grams of fat, 25 Grams of Carbs. Im no expert on nutrition but i have read alot over the past 6 months, I just started the CKD so any advice is appreciated, Not really on any supplements besides a multi vitamin and Vitamin D 10000 IU's. Supplements make my head spin and dont want to waste money since i have no clue what would help me reach my goals, Which is 185 10% BF, I know i have a ways to go.
I really want someone with a trained eye to help me out and judge my Bodyfat for me, Im going to get calipers soon, I do have one question that maybe someone can help me with. I can do Chin ups but not pull ups, My Bench is my weakest lift @145, i think i need to strengthen my Lats but im not sure hopefully with this info someone can help. Any advice will be appreciated, if you need more info ask and i will tell.
Well there it is im laying myself at your mercy let me know what you think my BF% is and possibly ways to reach my goals Quicker. Long post i know but i wanted to be very informative so i can get some decent responses.
Thanks in advance for the advice.

From the pic i would say you are around 15%16 BF
There is no story really to reach your goals you have to eat properly and train hard.. you need ti give it time to see if you are getting what you want time will show since you started for 4-6 months is very early to say.
My advice you should get a Whey protein whey helps, and you get protein easier.
