Sorry for being lazy and not researching this. I'm 6'1" and 228lbs. I am around 15% bf and trying to get down to 10% bf. Here is my current daily macros:

grams cals %total
Fat: 62 558 24%
Carbs: 210 685 29%
Protein: 274 1097 47%

Total Cals: 2434

I am trying to see if anyone disagrees with this make up. I am going to be on this for 12 weeks, any thoughts on that timeframe would be helpful too. Thanks.

What kind of fat are those 62 grams?

Probably not enough fat (at least .5g per lb BW is recommended). What are your maintenance cals?

What do you think some flaxseed? some natty PB? Still doesn't push me over 100 gm. My maintenance cals I am usually around 3500, which when I saw my macros I was thinking I was getting way to much of something in order to cut. I did this cut before and it worked pretty well, but I am just wondering if I can make it even better.

Use my diet

Meal 1: 1 Cup Oatmeal, 1 Cup Egg Beaters, 1 Cup 2% Milk

Meal 2: 6oz Chicken, 2 Cups Vegetables, 1 Cup Rice, 3oz Peanuts

Meal 3 (Pre-Workout):

1 Cup 2% Milk
2 Cups Whey
1 Banana

Meal 4 (Post-Workout):

1 Cup 2% Milk
2 Cups Whey
1 Banana

Meal 5:

6oz Chicken, 2 Cups Vegetables, 1 Cup Rice, 1 Cup 3oz Peanuts

It's roughly 3500 calories, maybe slightly higher, has about ~100-115g fat, 200+g protein, and plenty of carbs.
