Ill keep it short and simple.

Stats:
Weight: 75kg
Height: 5'6"
BF: 25%

Food/diet
Rest Days: 1500 Cals
Gym/cardio Days: 1700-1850

My food is all weighed out and in exact portions im eating clean as can be! My carbs and proteins are the following 130p/150c/35f.

My week consists of.

Monday: Rest
Tuseday: Motocross (1 hour 30min intense cardio)
Weds: 2 Hours of soccer then GYM
Thurs: 1 Hour of MTB
Friday: rest
Saturday: Motocross(2 hours of intense cardio)
Sunday: rest or a MTB ride

I normally have 20-40g of carbs on my motocross days and MTB days like Endura or bit of carbs for energy. Im exactly 2 weeks in my diet and haven't seen any weigh loss, i was told it takes 2-4 weeks for your diet to kick and then for the weight to shed off. Ive been doing my normal week on a crappy diet so im doing everything the same but just a completely new clean diet consisting of chicken, fish, brown rice, wholemeal pasta, sweet potato, tuna etc.

Am i worrying to much or should i just keep at it and let the diet do its thing?

For myself starting out @ 202 LBS
I had almost the exact things you listed on foods.
My nutritionist put me at 1600-1700 daily range....based on my 3-4 days of intense cardio.
I seem to gain-lose same 1-2 lbs lbs weekly... (spinning wheels)

Wasn't til I dropped it down to 1450-1550 cal daily range
and dropped the brown rice, wholemeal pasta, sweet potatoes....

I started to see 1.5lbs - 2lbs a week drop
(which is what I wanted in the first place)


***sadly I'm not blessed to eat brown rice, wholemeal pasta, sweet potatoes on a daily basis like most here and still drop***

that may......or may NOT be your case as well...

I might cut down on general calories first before ditching those lovely carbs lol. What carbs are you now eating instead? And why cant you eat those certain carbs?

Sorry for confusion
I have no problem eating those carbs
I meant...for (ME) I can't eat them back to back....
I was following someone's weekly meals
so I fixing brown rice, whole pasta, sweet potatoes ect with my tuna-chicken-fish. @ 1700cal a day
tried that way for 3 weeks...and I seem to be just spinning

I dropped those down to
(example) Sunday chicken-brown rice-veggies
Monday chicken - veggies only

seems I could get away with 2 or 3 days with the brown rice, wholemeal pasta, sweet potatoes ect..
but NOT 7 days a week.... like I was doing when I first started...

Some can........I can't lol



###and remember this is just way I eat for cutting###
I can eat that 7 days a week at 1500-1700 cal...I won't gain any LBS
but I won't lose any either LOL

Can be two causes.

1. Water retention it's not unusual to retain water for 2-3 weeks starting a diet/extra activity and whatnot (essentially stress either psychological or physical). So give it 3 weeks before starting to worry.

2. Incorrect calorie tracking, underestimating intake over estimating output is pretty common.


Now you don't mention any lifting, are you weight lifting ? If not you should get started asap, trying to lose weight without proper resistance training is a recipe for lean mass loss (you want to lose fat, not lbm.)
