How often are you weighing yourself and is it at the same time each day?

Weigh yourself daily. The more dots you have to connect to draw your line the better.

If it's a breakdown that you adhere to then it's good. There's not a lot of room to move things around on 2150 calories anyways. Get your 1g of protein per pound, get essential fats (would not recommend going below 45-50g) and fill the remaining calories as you see fit. They will not make or break weight loss at the point. As time goes on you may find it more accommodating to fiddle with different breakdowns. Maybe a higher percentage of the filler calories from carbs for energy needs, maybe a higher percentage from fat for satiety needs time will tell. For now just stay consistent with a small deficit.

Instead of worrying about nutrient breakdown and all that crap, just train harder. That will take you very far. once you hit the next plateau, then you can really dive into the nutrition side.

The other thing is that just because you want to lose weight, doesn't mean your body does. It's not a constant process. You could doeverything right and go nowhere. It happens all the time. Be consistent and if you're training hard and eating well you'll be fine.

Don't overcomplicate something that's very simple.

Be patient and enjoy the process. If you pay attention, you'll learn a pantload about how your body works. Stay positive and stay the course.
