    Congrats on getting started.

    Yes, nutrition is the number one priority for you. You should be losing at least 2lbs a week and if not, it's a simple matter of reducing calories. You can do things...

    Weight loss is always faster at the start so you might not sustain 1.5kg if you didn't change anything. What was it for the most recent week? If more than 1kg then maybe you could bump your intake up...

    No, those calculators make big assumptions. Real data is always preferable. If you are losing at a satisfactory rate on 2400, that is a sensible number so stick with it

    Don't try to gain more than about 1-2lbs a month. Having a little more muscle means you can get away with carrying more fat without it looking wobbly and bad. But you don't want to get into this...

    It's pretty hard to get EPA/DHA from plant sources. Some (like flax seeds) have ALAs which convert into EPA/DHA but the conversion rate is poor. There is no real substitute unfortunately. I don't...

    EPA/DHA is mainly for health - but of course you need to be in good health as a basis for training and hypertrophy. If you eat a lot of oily fish, you don't need supplementation.

    I personally would only take creatine, vit D, EPA/DHA and protein powder. Your needs may vary but finding unbiased views on what the science actually says is hard, this is one website I rate:

    So you lost 2lbs this week (as mentioned, was probably not all muscle) but what about previous weeks - what has been the average weekly loss - and for how many weeks?

    I bet it was the towel pullups that did it. No need for that, just do conventional pullups with a nice solid grip

    For now you'll just have to do what you can without training through pain....

    Well you have a minimim of 25lbs to lose, probably more since you'll have to undershoot your target weight and build muscle to replace fat.

    The order of doing this is not that important. You'll...

    We don't use fixed plans. It's better for longer term results to work it out for yourself:

    If your goal is purely fat loss, you need not do any cardio - just control your calorie intake.

    Of course, you can increase your deficit by adding cardio although I think it is an unproductive use...
