Numbers you will need for your macros:
185 grams of protein per day X 4 = 740 calories
sources: egg whites, chicken breast, whey protein, nuts like almonds/walnuts, fish like salmon/tilapia
185 grams of carbs per day X 4 = 740 calories (on non-training days, take half of the carbs you take on training days)
sources: sweet potato, brown rice, steel cut oats, quinoa
60 grams of healthy fats per day X 9 = 540 calories
sources: fish oils generally from food and/or supplementation, cooking oils such as olive and unrefined virgin coconut oil
= 2,020 calories per day

These are just general numbers and tips, but hopefully this helps.
Thanks! Do you think its natural to see more marked differences say between going from 220 to 200 versus 240 to 220...as in the less weight you are the weight loss you achieve becomes more apparent?
So far, these first 45 lbs have helped me feel lighter, but the jeans sizes haven't dropped that much yet. I figure that the slim waist will be the last thing to be achieved as I get closer to my goal.
