I see alot of these threads talk about routines but rarely about nutrition, which probably as important if not more. What is everyone's macros and daily caloric intake?

Diet is 90% of weight loss. I half assed Keto, then did no carb which resulted in 5-6lbs of fat loss with 5-6 pounds of muscle gained. But its unsustainable for me. Im a lazy dieter. I hate counting calories or macros.

To be honest the time i lost the most weight was when i was meal prepping. Have I mentioned im lazy though? I would make my meals on sunday and eat those every night for dinner. They were all no carb high protein with some sort of veggie side. I should start that again.....

But to answer your question I TRY to keep my calorie intake between 1200-1600 calories a day depending on my workout.

I use My Fitness Pal to not only track calories but my macros as well.
meal prep is the only way I can win and sustain any kind of fat loss.
Alcohol is my biggest nemesis I'm down to allowing it only 2 days of te week.
Salty crispy snacks are a close second, I just cant have them in the same room with me.
I usually stic to 1400 calories a day. It's slow but sustainable. pretty sure by the end of April I'll be able to ride for 3 days without fatigue. By January 2020 I expect to slog a fully loaded Beta trough 12 miles of sand and be able to pick it up with minimal help.

I learned to modify my diet and lose weight through the Weight Watchers program. It's mostly about tracking your food and modifying your eating habits. Fasting makes you think you are losing weight but it's mostly water. I don't track my food anymore, I just stay aware of what I eat and have good and bad food days. If I have a bad food day, I try and have a few good foods days to make up for it. If I know I'm going out to lunch with the boys, I'll eat a light breakfast and dinner.
I lost 70 lbs on WW, put 20 back on but I've been able to maintain for 5 years now.

I have no idea of actual numbers. Routine is just to cook dinner, eat half of it and take the other half for lunch at work the next day. Fits in a small take home container you'd get from a restaurant. Package everything up before I start eating dinner to avoid, "I'll just go back for seconds."

No calorie counting. No special diets other than laying off the breads. Simply walking 3 miles minimum every day or hiking 4-5 miles per day when it's dry out. Eating less and deciding i don't need to finish everything in front of me along with getting used to that was a huge factor.

Lost over 30lbs in a few months doing the above.

I typically bicycle to work (7mi/day) which helps, but only so much.

It's significantly faster than Muni

This is, pretty much, my routine, also.

It's the unlimited opportunity to snack is what gets me. I am working on that.

Fair, I don't track those but I'm not looking to get to 12% body fat.

Following general rules of eat less bread, more fish/lean chicken, mostly plants.

I've dropped 60lbs since August just from not eating crap and being on my bike a majority of the day. Need to start doing some walking daily as well to slowly transition to possibly running(shudder) again. Also seeing the docs at the VA for help has been good too. Have me a caloric intake goal of 1800 cals a day to start with which is the hardest part since I'm staying with friends here in SF that like to cook, at least I'm eating home cooking and just need to ramp up the veggie intake again.
Oh and the biggest thing I've done to help she's weight was quit my job and drop all the stress of work and most living expenses. Basically intentionally unemployed and homeless has been my main weight loss strategy. YMMV

the thread title says "fit", not "skinny. but a lot of people started off by listing their weights. unfortunately, popular culture has everyone equating weight with fitness, attractiveness, and health. its never that simple.

IMO, losing weight is mostly diet & gaining fitness is mostly working out.
