Ok, so at the moment im on 1500 calories a day or under, less than 40 grams of fat running every day and doing weights every other day. Ive lost a good 16 pounds in 8 weeks, which is good but i want to know will i lose more weight if i eat less fat in my amount of calories per day or will it not affect it? I mean will it affect my weight if i have 1500 calories a day including 80 grams of fat compared to having 1500 a day but getting most from carbohydrates with less fat? Cheers in advance, oh yeah and my body fats from 22% to 17.5 now :tsr: :tsr: :tsr:

I'd advise eating complex carbs. Keep you full for longer. But it doesn't matter where you get your cals from. I need to eat around 1000 cals a day to lose weight cos I'm a girl and I'm small!

Are you male or female? Personally, I think keeping your fat intake low is a good idea - particularly saturated fats, which are not at all good for you. What I do is make sure that I don't eat more than 12g saturated fat in a day and don't bother looking at the other fat values. I would imagine that a low fat diet at 1500 calories would help you lose weight faster than a high fat one, but I don't know for sure. A low fat one is more likely to have more nutritious foods in, though.

if you drop the amount of intake cals too much you will struggle to lose weight as your metabolism will slow down, if you gradually decrease the amount of cals you have by like 100 every 2 weeks it will be more beneficial than a sudden reduction in cals.

If you're losing weight steadily and have lost 16 pounds in 8 weeks why change anything? I suggest you keep doing what you're doing till you plateu, then start changing things.
