hey guys so just a quick question here is what i have planned to cut, i always get confused while cutting and have no idea why. i plan to start eating at maintenance calories for 1 week and every week after that i will drop 100 kcals until i reach where i want.
so im 5 foot 8, 197lbs, around 12ish bf, so my TDEE is between 2700 and 2900 so im starting at 2800 for my starting point. so im going to cut at 2600/2500 kCals so it will take me 3 weeks to get there. the reason for this is so i can get used to dieting down again.
carbs only morning, pre, post workout and no carbs after 6 pm, just veggies. obviously a clean diet.
my macros for now:
100-130g of fats
250g of protein
My body handles fats really well and also about 200-300 kCal from fat will be MCT oil. i plan on doing this until my fat loss stalls and then i will carb cycle.
carb cycling: 2 low 1 high carb days
low carb 80-120g
high carb 250-300g
thats pretty much it, can anyone give me some input or just an ok? i always feel like i mess up on my cuts and i want to preserve as much mass aspossible but doing this naturally i know that it will be almost impossible not to lose some muscle.

I'm no guru by any means, but if looks nice to me. I always slowly drop cals and whatnot. Only thing I ask is for you to keep us posted on your progress.

Looks solid to me especially with cutting cals slowly. I always like my biggest carb meal before bed but that's just me. I'm also cutting right now so in for results... How lean you tryin to get?

Right on man, my goal as well. That combo sounds nice would help out some with muscle preservation. Best of luck!

Solid macro numbers, good to see your fat is up.

If anyone wanted an update my macros have been perfect and I've never cut with this many carbs (120-150) and I think it's because now that I have more lean body mass than before my body can handle these carbs a lot better.
I'm actually feeling tighter and I'm at 2800 kcal which isn't that low yet.
So I'm still shocked I'm losing water /glycogen / fat at te amount of carbs I've been eating. Usually, my last cut when I was 175lbs (now 195) I could only eat 50-80g of carbs or else I'd hold water. Amazing how metabolism can change.
