    need more info... your bf%?
    but in general it's fats
    take in more fats and -->
    50 carbs if u have the metabolizm of a turtle and 150 if you have a fast metabolism ----- you need close to 100 g fat a day all good fats i.e. flaxseed oil, grapeseed oil, all natural peanut butter
    w/ at least 1.5-2.5 g protein per pound of body weight
    My 2cents

    It sounds like you have a high BF%,,,therefore you may want to look into a Keto diet, but before doing a keto I would taper the carbs down while increasing good fats...Just dont fall into the Keto diet without tapering...you will crash

    so do I still need all that protein?

    so i should take in no more then 50 carbs per day and i dont take in much fat at all eating what i eat...

    whole bran flakes
    rice cake tuna fish
    skinless chicken breast
    fruit

    thats about it

    thanks for the help guys..

    definitely just cut out all carbs... eat fat as it takes fat to burn fat...

    deplete your body of carbs and it will begin to burn its own stored bodyfat

    YEAH I AGREE

    Cut the Carbs - especially at night....stop eating them after diner!!!!!

    You need to eat fat, otherwise your whole system shuts down and you can't think properly.

    Try limiting fast food, junk food, carbonated drinks, and refined sugar.

    Good Luck

    "O and im really not lifting right now.. just cardio for a while until i lose some weight"

    Drop back on the cardio and get in some weight training. It is very effective in stimulating metabolism, and will increase muscle tissue, which in itself is metabolically active. Keep cardio after lifting.
