B, sorry you're getting the level of response you'd like. We try to answer everyone's questions but sometimes some slip through.
Anyway, it's pretty tough to accurately predict how long weight loss and/or muscle gain will take. Everybody and every body is different and reacts differently to calorie deficit and/or exercise.
It sounds like you're on the right track. If you are accurate about your calorie intake and expenditure, a 1000 cal a day deficit "should", on average, net you about a two pound per week loss. It won't always, of course, but over a month the average should be pretty close. Of course, calorie intake/burn is, at best, a guesstimate and you may have to adjust if you don't get the results you are expecting.
As far as calorie mix goes, that, too is a personal decision. Personally, I shoot for a daily average of 40/30/30 carbs/fat/protein mix. I don't fret if it goes one way or the other, but I'm pretty close to this for a weekly average. Others prefer a different mix--it all depends on your body chemistry, your food preferences and what you need to keep you "full" enough to lesson the chances of going off-plan.
Hope this helps!
