What does lack of appetite in a pre diabetic person suggest?
Pre-diabetes is not diagnosed on the basis of hunger
You are losing weight at a very safe level. We recommend that no more than 2 pounds per week be lost in order to make it a permanent loss by gradually changing eating ant activity. It sounds like you are doing well at the calorie level you are on and you are feeling well and losing the amount of weight you should be losing.
I did the calculations and the 1500 kcal diet is exactly what you should be on to be losing 2 pounds per week. Just try to get a balanced diet, include good fats like virgin olive oil, avocados (1/8 = 1 fat).

Yes XXXXXXX that is what I would have distributed your diet as
Clarifications: With the 50% carbohydrates emphasize water soluble fiber such as oats and the skins off of fresh fruit as opposed to wheat fiber which is water insoluble fiber. Water soluble fibers help with the weight loss process. Adding a little yogurt with active cultures are good to help re-balance the "gut microbiome" as well. This is just a little additional nutritional information.
However, I think I have answered your question about your diet distribution. Keep yourself well hydrated with that high of a protein intake and choose lean protein sources. You seem to be doing that because you are losing the weight!~
