    Wow 1409 calories.

    Far, far too low.

    You really need to up that, especially given your stats.

    Do you pre fuel for your weights and cardio? ? ?

    If you are weight training then you need to pre fuel.

    Carbs and proteins before hand are good here.

    Start off with higher calories, you can always come down.

    In my opinion you need to be eating at least 2000, possibly a good few hundred more.

    was trying to keep carbs down


    Why?

    And if you do decide to stick with this low carb intake, you really have to up your fats and have a re-feed day once a week.

    Your fats are 34g, they should be at least 70g to compensate for the low carbs.

    From my experience mate, the more carbs I eat, the better results I get (also cutting) and the better I feel. This doesn't mean eat them with every meal. For me, breakfast pre and PWO with loads of fiborious veg throughout the day suits me fine.

    In light of this, what time are you eating prior to working out? I'd say more tbh, 60g carbs, 25-30g protein

    Unaffiliated.

    thanks for the above but is'nt 60g carbs and 30g protien approx 360cals a little much for before exercise considering im wanting to lose fat, thought it was best to exercise on empty first thing in the morning to burn fat.

    You could reduce the carbs a bit from 60 grams (40-50).

    You need to pre fuel your weight training though.

    Dont forget that intense weight training will deplete your glycogen, and after your first meal with 40-50 grams of carbs, you are then going to be doing steady state cardio for your fat loss efforts.
