I tweaked those numbers since then, I get 2330 calories with a goal weight of 175, losing about 1.9 lbs per weak. My weight is dropping with my graph just as it should, actually faster 7.5 lbs of weight loss in 21 days. But as my goal is increasing lean mass and lowering body fat I am doing great, as I have lost 2.5 inches on my chest, and waist, another 2 from my thighs and 1 from my hips, along with gaining half inch on my bicep and quarter inch on my calves.
Yes I do lift weights 3 times a week along with HIIT. I focus on compound lift supersets with minimal rest. Its intense to say the least, when I leave the gym my shirt is completely wet with sweat. I have been making impressive strength gains as well.
Thanks for the replies but I have my diet right where I want it now.
