Weight Watcher Points
WW is another way to count calories. Like abba said they are approx 50 calories a point. So I guess multiply your point allotment by 50 and you'll have your calorie total.

Water retention
You are probably experiencing hyponatremia. "Hyponatremia can lead to fluid retention after exercise, so consume enough sodium while you exercise. The condition can also be quite dangerous, leading to pressure on your brain from excess blood volume in your brain capillaries, causing death if not treated quickly."

Sodium is very important in functioning muscles. Unless your doctor advises you to lower your sodium intake there is no reason to avoid it. Be reasonable of course but you need sodium especially if you're working out.

Macro Ratios for effective weight loss
Macronutrient Intake

Ensure that your intake of macronutrients meets sufficiency (as defined below), with remaining macronutrient composition of the diet being largely a function of personal preference.

Protein minimum: ~0.8 grams per pound of bodyweight (or target/ideal weight in the obese).

(0.6 gram protein per lb is a good minimum for many general lifters at maintenance or surplus calories, for optimal body building purposes and during energy deficit 0.8 gram per lb likely provides some additional benefits.)

Fat minimum: ~0.4 grams per pound of bodyweight (or target/ideal weight in the obese).

Remaining caloric budget: whatever mix of macronutrients you prefer and/or allows you to perform and feel well. Some people do better on a higher carb intakes while other people do better on moderate or lower carb intakes. It is not necessary to set a specific numbers for each macro, what matters is that the total calories, minimum fat and protein are achieved.

Monitoring calorie intake is the best for weight loss. Cardio can help but it can also make you hungrier. Many simply eat more and defeat the purpose. Weight training is more important in my opinion. You get a more desirable shape as it helps you maintain more lean body mass if you couple it with an adequate protein intake. I guess it depends on if you want to look close to a fitness model or a marathoner.

If you're not losing fat, your problem is too many calories in.
