    @kika5105, deep in mind that the macros don't need to be an "exact every day" thing. Somewhere around your goals, up one day, down the next, but averaging out in the right region over something like a week: That should be fine, is *hugely* easier to achieve, and is doing better than the overwhelming majority of people do.

    And the macros are about health, energy level, and satiation . . . not directly controlling weight. Obviously, if energy level tanks, or poor satiation causes binges, those can have indirect effects on weight management. But in a direct sense, weight is about calories (both in and out, and with recognition that the calories eaten have an effect on calories expended, i.e., it's not fully static).

    Best wishes for excellent results!

    MFP guided set-up can give you a calorie goal: That's the "how much". (However, your food choices are yours alone. 100 calories of butter is a tiny little nubbin, and 100 calories of broccoli is a pretty big heap.) Individuals feel full eating in different ways: That part is a personal experiment. It's OK to take your time working it out, for yourself. Just make positive progress, and you'll get to a good place.

    As far as what to eat: There are multiple possible ways to get there. The starting post in this thread is one way: Log what you eat now, gradually revise to meet new goals.

    Another way is to adopt an eating strategy or structured meal plan. There are lots of those. One very structured option some people like, at kind of the opposite extreme, is this web site: https://www.eatthismuch.com/ . It lets you select a kind of overall strategy (paleo, Mediterranean, etc.), number of daily calories (that you got from MFP guided setup), number of meals you like to eat daily . . . then it suggests a very specific daily plain. You can "test drive" different strategies there, or get daily menu ideas - can be useful.

    If you have specific questions, please ask . . . but I'm not very good at telling other people *specifically* how they should eat. I think everyone should get overall decent nutrition, but there are literally gazillions of ways to do that.

    Best wishes!
