    Try taking in 200 or so grams of quality protein. That's 800 calories.

    Scale back to 100 g (or less) of carbohydrates, mostly following your workout. That's 400 calories.

    You now have 1200 calories per day. You'd probably still lose weight with another 1000 calories per day, depending on activity levels.

    You should be able to take in 110 grams of fat.


    DISCLAIMER: i know the "science" behind calorie counting, but i don't think its the best thing for you to do.

    most guys shoot for 40/30/30. 40% protein, 30% carbs and fats. make sure these are healthy carbs and fats, lean proteins
