I agree with RENOAK on several points, protein is essential and I would think your should be at a minimum around 150g/daily. Too large a calorie deficit can stall your weight loss efforts. Your body thinks it is starving and goes into conservation mode to try to hold onto every ounce.

I disagree that more cardio will trigger the above mentioned starvation mode. Multiple workout sessions can help to increase your metabolism. You must, as RENOAK mentioned, be aware of your calorie deficit. I am not an expert but I have followed MECOMPCO's posts (he was also over 400 pounds) over the past year and I believe he accomplished his success with a 1500-2000 calorie/day diet. Look for MECOMPCO's posts to see how he was succesful.
