I would focus on getting good quality protein in first. Don't overdo the protein, but you don't want to skimp, either. Not getting enough protein could lead to loss of muscle mass, which you always want to keep.

After that, focus on good fats and healthy carbs (veggies and any you'll get from meat and eggs first).

I don't know what your menu looks like, but 1600 calories isn't too much for most people. I don't track my calories, but that's in my ballpark, even well under it some days.
