Macronutrient ratios differ based on the individual, and there is no "perfect" ratio to follow, so I will not give you one.
Instead, I recommend reading The 3 Keys to Fat Loss - this article contains comprehensive advice and information on nutrition (and supplementation - you only need the basic staples) and training for effective and successful fat loss.
If you cannot follow the principles and design something re nutrition and training for yourself from that, then I recommend getting yourself a trainer who can and will do this specifically and individually for YOU, taking into account your goals and needs.

thanks for the link. I appreciate all the info
in terms of calories what would constitute a "small" meal ? would it be say 300 calories?

"Small" is going to be different for each individual, based on their Maintenance and fat loss calories, their training schedule, etc. But yes, I would say 300 calories constitutes a very small meal - even 500 calories is a small meal, really.

keep in mind you cannot "lose fat", you lose weight, fat and lean. most of this is diet, being below your maintenance calories. log your intake at fitday.com, and adjust calories downward until you lose ~1lb/week. with time,wt loss, and blunted metabolism, your maintenace drops and you have to shed more calories for the same effect. we cannot "design" a diet, you have to log and experiment and post back here with specific questions and progress. you should have an exercise regimen too.
