yeah, what he said...and you may be eating too much protein and not enough veggies / good carbs...
for someone who's 300+ lbs...2000 calories isn't alot at all.
just used a weight loss calculator online and with a 325 lb weight (I think thats what mtdman said he was around) and with moderate activity they suggested 3000 calories a day for weight loss.
3,000 calories a day for weight loss is absurd. When I was 290 I was told 1,800-2,000 by a nutritionist.

9 mile run today...i may be able to make the Tough Mudder after all
At 325, 6 foot, age 40, sedentary, my bmr is 3254. I am not sedentary. I'd say I'm moderately active on average. That bmr is 4203. So 2000 to 2500 is at least 1000 cals less than what my base rate should be. Most days, I'm closer to 2000 than 2500. You can't go too low, you're body will go into starvation mode. I've also been spacing my meals through the day so I eat more often, smaller meals, trying to keep my insulin levels constant and prevent spikes.
I did manage to get down to 323 on the scale this am.

The only real way to figure out someone's BMR Is to calculate their lean body mass. This is done by finding their body fat percentage which is done with physical tests... Not guesstimates. You also could utilize VO2 Max tests for increased accuracy.
So basing your diet plan off an app isn't the most accurate way to do so. If you are serious, take a day and go see a specialist.
