So I’ve basically been cutting for a pretty long time, 3+ months, have gone from 22 bf to 15. I want to keep going down to around 10 but Cutting this long is starting to catch up to me. Currently at 1800 calories a day and trying to decide if I should just transition into a recomp/slow bulk at this time since the summers almost over. Just have a fear of going about 20 bf again since I’d be starting a bulk around 15
First of all, can you give me a rough estimate of my bodyfat %? Just curious.
Secondly, I feel like shit lately and therefore eating my way to soothe my cravings, I'd be thankful for some motivation to get back on track (once there, I have discipline)
Lastly, what can I expect from a healthy -500 Calorie cut in 1-2 months (especially curious about the 5 week mark because there's a festival and I'd like to be topless mostly.
Thanks in advance! :)

Hi, I’m 18, 177cm and currently weigh 157 pounds I’m 16.8% body fat. My macros over the last month have been 200grams of protein,40 grams of fat and 150 grams of carbs, I was wondering if the protein is too high for cutting and I should drop it and replace it with a higher carb amount?? Or is everything fine as it is
I'm 6'2 and I cut down to 180lbs from 210lbs. Should I keep cutting? I really want to hit 10% bf and have visible abs, but my weight loss has plateaued for a few months. I'm eating 1700 calories a day but I usually end up binging once every 7-10 days or so.
Lift heavy 3x a week and I've taken multiple TDEE calculators that usually come out to 2300 calories for maintenance. I'm not sure what my next step should be - bulk or cut?
I started at 185 a while back and I felt fat, so I reduced my calories from 3500 to about 2000 (with 175 g protein). I've lost about 25 lbs since then. Of course I knew I'd get weaker, but my deadlift and squat have gone down like 30 lbs each and my bench has gone down like 20 lbs. And maybe this is a personal issue because I used to be crazy skinny (120 at 5'10), but I feel like I look frail now. Like I'm losing all my muscle and I look like I used to back before I started working out.
Basically, I'm skinnyfat and looking for guidance. Do I abort the cut and bulk back up? or do I keep pushing for abs?
So I got the test done I am 37 years old 5'9" measured in at 158 lbs lean muscle and 22% bf.
Currently I am stalled at 198 to 205 lbs. I weight train 4 times a week using Jim stoppini shortcut to size. 30 min of cardio each day. 3 days a week I do an hour of Brazilian jiu jitsu. I'm eating aprx. 2400 to 2800 cal a day depending on if I'm doing jiu jitsu. Ive been stuck at 198 to 205 for 2 months. I meal prep religiously. No supplements currently except multi vitamin and joint pills.
Any help would be appreciated.
Been cutting/dieting for some weeks now and i'am starting to see my body/metabolism slowly adapting to it. Should i do carb refeeds every 7-14 days or do 2-3 weeks where i eat about my maintenance calories?
So I've been cutting for 3 months or so but I've just can't see any real improvement in my body.

This is what happens whenever I try to bulk/cut, a few weeks of what feels like progress then everything stops. What am I doing wrong?
I'm 24 years old, 5ft 8in, 195lbs, 24% body fat, 29.6 BMI. My goal weight's around 160. I used to run track in high-school so one of my main goals is to be able to run 2 straight miles again consistently. I know cardio is good for fat loss, but I don't want to get skinny. Strength is another goal, but I'm not sure how to incorporate the two.
I'm about 22% body fat 5' 10" 185lbs 21yo male and concerned about cutting too quickly and "ruining" my metabolism so to speak and losing muscle.
I have a powerlifting workout routine I have done for quite a while so I hope this will prevent tons of muscle loss. I am eating about 1700 calories a day with lots of vegetables and protein. I have tried cutting on 2000 in the past but my psyche functions better with "difficult and extreme" approaches. And I can back it up by saying I successfully followed a extremely strict paleo diet for 4 years and lost HUGE weight and gained muscle.
So thoughts on how fast is too fast of a cut? Thanks! My main goal is to get shredded, hence this sub.
https://m.imgur.com/a/HLnJxzS Hi there. about 2 months ago I started watching my nutrition and lifting weights with the intent of getting shredded. Ive lost some of the belly fat and was now wondering if I have enough mass to get lean or to bulk as Im not sure what to do as I still haven’t lost all the belly fat that I hve wanted to lose. Thank you. Attached a pic
