From what you have today, your fat intake is very low. Protein is prolly overkill.

Whats your average daily intake?Your cals maybe too low.

Whats your lifting routine? ihope you say heavy and low volume.

1200 cals is way too low in most circumstances. Fat doesnt help you lose fat per se, but dietary fat is essential for bodily function.

At your weight you should be able to lose at 2000+ calories. I would up the fats, lower the protein a tad, and maybe even up the carbs and center them around your workout and first thing in the morning (fruit is best at that time). I just hope you havent crashed your metabolism.

Slowly. Increment your calories up each week and of course keep your activity level high. You should prolly eat at maintence cals for 2 weeks. for most males its 14-16 x BW.
