Endomorph trying to cut, weight 190lbs at about 20% BF. Current base rate calories is around 2600, so looking at about 2100 calories per day to lose 1-1.5lb a week.

Current Macros are:
240g - protein, 960 calories,
60g - fat, 525 calories
160g - carbs, 640 calories.

How do they look? I think protein may be a little high and carbs possibly a little too low, but I'm not sure.

I'd up the carbs a bit if I were you, you're not going to use all that protein anyway. Though I'd give it a week and see how it goes, some people have no problem going on with a bit lower carbs, others struggle with it. If you end up feeling like crap, you know what to do

Lower protein. Increase fat and carbs. 225 is the max you should go with protein. But you only need around 150. Somewhere in between is fine I'd suggest minimum 80g fat.

Yeah your diet is deficient in fat at the moment and unnecessarily high in protein.
