All -

As many of you know from reading my other posts, I'm just getting started on a solid fitness routine.

I'm hitting the weights and cardio 4 times a week (30min. cardio and about an hour of lifting).

Anyhow, any suggestions on what my daily calorie intake should be if I'm looking to get lean as quick as possible. What % of those calories should be which macronutrients.

If your like 18 then you can just eat somewhat clean and cut with your workout schedule.
Otherwise, Body Weight X 12 is standard ratio for cutting. Cycle cals like 2500-2800 and keep at leasr 20% of your diet comng from good fat.
