    Caloric intake seems fine - as long your above 1865-ish I don't foresee any problems.
    You can get away with dropping protein down to 145g if you wish.
    I'd keep fats at a minimum of 73g unless your dieting phase is going to be relatively short.
    The rest is for carbs.
    The toughest achievements involve long, isolated, battles with your self.

    Hi, Boomer,

    Eating or drinking carbohydrates before exercise can improve workout performance and may allow you to work out for a longer duration or higher intensity.
    If you plan to exercise within an hour after breakfast, eat a light breakfast or drink something such as a sports drink. Good Luck.
