I'm confuesed on how to get the 50% protein, 30% carbs and 20% fats and still eat other healthy foods, like fruits and salads. I'm 5'10", 220lbs and trying to lose about 40 lbs. Doing P90x lean and running a few days a week. I try to keep my calrorie intake between 1800 and 2000 cals a day. But my weight is staying the same.
I have almost exactly your height, calorie intake and weight and weight loss goal. I have lost 22 pounds in 5 weeks and feel great. You are eating too much protein and carbs and too little fat. I eat 10% carbs (a little more now), 30% protein and the rest fat. My account name is RichardBuckner and my food logs are public. You are welcome to see them
