I am not asking how to count calories or what my macros are. I have already broke those down in my current meals. I was asking if those macros and diet were correct for my goals and size.

Just track your losses. 1-2lbs a wk is ideal. If your losing more, slow down and up the calories a bit, and vice versa. Although, I know me personally, to lose any kind of weight, my carbs have to be a good bit lower than that. Not saying you will, but just experiment for what works best for you. Keeping protein high will help in retaining your hard earned muscle 250g @ 220 is about bare minimum. You might want to try upping it a bit. Your fat is pretty decent, and fill the remaining calories with carbs. Nutrient timing is key.
