We'll help out buddy. :)

First, you should start off with about 2000 cals per day. You could go as low as 1500, but no lower.

My protein intake was around 200+ grams per day.

When i was cutting, my carbs and fat intake varied from week to week. Sometimes i would take in close to 100 grams of good fats per day, from flaxseed oil and peanut butter.

My carb intake was based on my cardio days. Non cardio days would be low, like 100 grams. Heavy cardio days made me weak, so i went as high as 300, from brown rice and oatmeal.

we did post at the same time....
thanx alot for your help (:

so i should eat 2000 calories a day, 200g of protein ( how am i going to get so much protein in 2000 calories? ) and about 100g of fat a day?

and 300g of carbs in cardio days?

No. You should keep your carbs under 200. I was just telling you what i did. I was doing cardio 2+ hours a day, 5 days a week. :D

I used protein powders for most of my protein needs. I ate alot of chicken and beef jerky for the rest.

I would use flaxseed oil, at 2 tablespoons per day or more.

If no one else responds, try searching the various threads here on weight loss. Cutting diets are covered alot here; that's why no one is responding to your pleas for help.

Use the search function here first. I'll keep this thread on the first page all week, if i have to. :D

I work 3 jobs nowadays, so i have to rest up for this week.

Also, checkout the Nutrition forum as well. Some of the gurus here won't even bother to look at this, as it has been covered 1,000 times before.

Do some research first. I'll check on this thread in a few.
