I've read stickies and other post. I make sure to weigh and track everything I eat. I would say 95% of my meals are self made currently. My stats are as follows. Im trying to cut fat and save as much muslce as possible in the process.

Heighy: 6'2
Weight: 250
Body fat: just a guess at pictures on site would be 25%-30%

Calorie intake is 2200-2400
Macros are: 250-275g protien
100-150g carbs
40-60g fat
Usually about a 50/30/20 split
I started into lifting weights mostly compound exetcises 3x a week with some interval cardio on treadmill 5x a week usually a jog at about 4mph with a full run of about 6mph for a minute every two minutes for a total of 30 minutes.

If any other information is needed I will happily provide it . Thanks in advance

Calories seem low for that amount of physical activity and your size. How long have you been dieting?

If I were you, sorted by priority I would....
1. Increase fat intake
2. Increase carbohydrate intake
3. Decrease cardio and increase weightlifting
4. Potentially either increase calories, refeed, and/or lower protein depending on how long you've been dieting.

I've been dieting about a month and half so far. I've went down somewhat steady in weight dropped from 264 to my current 250 in that time. I used the TDEE calculator found here to try and find the 1000 calorie deficit it gave me a TDEE of 3300. If thats any help .

You won;t need that much protein. Probably 200g is enough. I would replace those extra calories with fats.

How high did you put your activity level?

I made my activity level moderate do to my job being pretty much non active for 8-10 hours a day .

I would class that as light really.

Fat intake too low... don't use ratios for macros.... actually read the stickies if you are going to make that claim.
