    Your macros don't matter to lose weight. Calories determine weight loss or gain. Macro splits are very individual and affect satiety. Figure out what split keeps you satisfied. For me, I eat higher protein to stay full and satisfied. If I ate higher carbs, I would eat a ton and not be full or satisfied.

    So, macros are something you need to experiment with.

    With less than 6 Kg to lose, .4 Kg in one weeks' time is good progress.

    Protein, fat, and fiber are filling. I make sure I meet my (default) protein goal and get some fat and fiber at each meal. No need to change default macros unless you are struggling with hunger.

    The default protein goal in MFP if pretty low. If someone is actively exercising look it get about .8g of protein per pound of bodyweight (assuming close to normal bodyweight).
