What would you tell your 16 year old self?
I would tell myself to have made these life changes earlier. Get off your ass, go workout, meet new people, make daring life decisions, etc. Your life will improve a thousand times moreover. Oh and keep playing school sports - you are not too cool for them no matter what s##t you say.

How to eat enough calories on a high protein high fat diet?
Yeah, I was unfortunately late for breakfast before my swim today. Just had to power through it with some protein powder. I absolutely wish I at eggs, but it's the one food that I just can't stand. I could definitely start eating avacados and I'll eat more food once I get back home (sort of on a trip right now and fruit is in short supply. Meat obviously isn't). Even though some of the food I may be inputting is "processed" it actually is not, I just input the closest food I can find to what I'm actually eating. Just easier that way (yes, that is slightly lazy).

I workout about 6 times a week and have no idea in hell how I can even get up to 2,060 calories a day like I supposedly need.

How to eat enough calories on a high protein high fat diet?
Honestly, managing to consume about 1500 calories a day on my diet has been incredibly difficult. Peanut Butter has definitely helped in bringing some balance to it. Anyone have recommendations on the amount of fat I should be consuming? I try and eat around my weight in grams of protein. I just find it very difficult to find enough food to eat to meet my goals even though I eat quite a bit!

The infamous Salt Water Flush
If you really want to "detox" then I'd suggest forgoing this and just start consuming more green tea.

Needing Support
AS people have already mentioned: drop all non-whole foods, increase your water intake, for fat loss try and increase the amount of cardiovascular exercise that you do. Go walk, cycle, swim, whatever that will get you moving. But make sure to not overdue it. At 350 I would not advise running as it will put a lot of pressure on your joints. Instead, stick to the low-impact alternatives already listed. Good luck to you out there.
