Any help would be great.

92kg=~200lbs
So,for fat loss:200*14(if you're working out hard and doing cardio)=2800cals
If you go on a 40/30/30 ratio of carbs/protein/fats (which i suggest) you'll have to consume about 280gr. of carbs,210gr. of protein and 93gr. of fats.
Start with cutting 300 cals every 10 days until you reach these calories.If you're loosing weight too fast then add some calories.Make the adjustments depending on the progress.
