Well the first week is over.....only 23 to go lol

So far I have lost 7lbs in a matter of about 4.5 wks becuase I did three weeks of warm up. I am currently 6ft 170lbs. My caliber keeps coming out at 13% BF but I am rounding up to 16 just cause I am sure thats not right.
Here is My fit day since I started:

Average Calories
grams cals %total
Total: 2343
Fat: 82 741 34%
Sat: 17 156 7%
Poly: 17 149 7%
Mono: 44 392 18%
Carbs: 221 814 37%
Fiber: 17 0 0%
Protein: 162 646 29%
Alcohol: 0 0 0%

this is the average over the last week and half....anything thats sticks out to you that is bad.....I am trying to get protien up closer to 175g and carbs down a bit. Fat I like. Fiber I do not and have been feeling the side effects of low fiber if you know what I mean. Cals are probably close to 2400 a day do to fish oils. So fats are a little I usually take 3 1000mg fish oils daily. I have been drinking close to 2gallons of water daily and I feel great. I have not been doing HIIT as much as I would have liked and I am going to start getting a 1/2 hr am walk and attempt to do HIIT 3 times week. I would like to lower cals as well get closer to 2200 or 2000.

for fat loss, according to your size, it looks good.

Hey man good job, I'm cutting too and its a complete bitch, especially @ 2200 cals a day like I do lol, IDK if you've thought about it but when I lower carbs I usually see fat start shedding off, just FYI, good progress man, keep it up.

I would increase protein and increase fibre intake.

It looks like alot of carbs but I am getinng around 100 of the 221 in my post workout shake. I took out an apple that I was eating preworkout that was some carbs and I took out a slice of bread I will how low I can get it. Thanks yeah it sucks be hungry all the time. I just want to get this over with, I have trouble finding the time to do hiit though.

Last couple of days got protein up to about 178.....still working on the fiber... what is something I can eat that is low in cals and loaded with fiber?

You really shouldnt be hungry at that calorie level. Eat foods that make you full.

Good sources of fibre: broccoli, green beans, cauliflower,spinach,greens,avocado.

Another thing i try to do when reaching protein levels, and I dont know if there is anything more to it than personal preference, but I try to reach my 1g/lbm in complete proteins. So i make sure the cottage cheese,whey,yogurt,milk,cheeses etc equal my lbm. After that the proteins from carb,fat sources are just extra.
