I've gone from 206lbs to 188.2lbs as of today and my calories have fallen from 3600 to 2700.

this last week i lost no weight, so where should i drop from, see below, for the upcoming week?

2700 breaks down to 39%(271g) protein, 35%(108g) fat and 26%(182g) carbs.

Trim out more carbs?

If it was me I would drop fats and proteins a bit. I don't know your stats but I'm assuming 275 or whatever protein could be dropped to 250 or 24o pretty safely. Also fats could probably be dropped to 90 w ease. That would trim a few hundred cals. Carbs are already pretty low.

Well, how tall are you? Whats your body fat like? If you could post a pic that would be helpful. If you are content with your weight I would start maintaining or try to add some muscle by increasing your intake. How ever if you aren't pleased I would take out carbs out from your diet, carbs aren't essential. Proteins and fats are essential how ever so I wouldn't cut from there. Make sure you are lifting and what not to retain some muscle as you cut down the weight as well. As well use the formulas from the stickies to determine your macro nutrients and how much to take away.

6ft and circa 13-14% body fat, use the mirror so its only a guess - although body fat calliper at iliac crest read 10.5mm - definitely need to lose more fat before i bulk again, have light definition showing through, predominantly on legs and upper abs.

X2. Protein/fats dont need to be that high unless OP sees a specific need/benefit.

If it's only been a week, I'd give it a couple more before I changed anything.

i'm aiming for 1-2lb a week and i dont think holding at this cal level will cause me to lose anymore. May as well trim out the excess protein and fat.
