    I am not a bodybuilder, and in the engineering world...we learn to use significant figures prudently and according to relevance. Anyhow, an estimate is what it is, an imprecise guess...best bet OP has is to get a bod pod exam.

    So shouldn't you be on some engineering website instead of AM so you can use your figures prudently??

    That's 3 for 15%.

    If cutting is desired:

    -EC stack
    -Reduce-XT
    -TTA-500
    -RK-500
    -Green Tea

    You will reach 9% in around 4-5 months of proper dieting, a good caloric deficit and a good mix of HIIT and LISS.

    You asked for people's opinions. You got them. There's nothing wrong with being 15%. If you want to be lower, cut. Simple as that. You can do it.

    So lets say it is 15% and I am 203 lbs.

    203*.15=30.45 lbs of fat.

    I need to lose approximately 11-13 lbs of fat to get to 8% (190 lbs with ~174 lean muscle tissue)

    750 calorie deficit per day would mean 1.5lb lost a week, 6lbs a month.

    Maybe I could do it in 2 months?

    Not that simple, you are missing the fact there's also visceral fat, water weight and muscle mass to be loss during a cut (yes sadly most of the times we end up losing a teensy bit of mass...)

    If you already know your Maintenance level well I would start taking it slow and building up a deficit over the weeks until you reach 500-750...Just take it slow, a slow and steady cut is best for maintaining strength and mass.

    You wanna do a 750 calorie deficit per day when you only eat 1800 calories a day?

    no 1800 calories is actually around ~750 under maintenence for me. so if i stay on track (eating 300-500 more on lifting days) then i could feasibly do it in 2-3 months.

    but yeah i dont want to lose weight too fast thanks for all your help guys.

    750 calorie deficit per day will result in you getting to 190 in a hurry, but without anabolics you'd be real lucky if your LBM stayed above 170. When I wrestled, I went from 200+ offseason to 180 before dropping water and now that I look back, my body fat never varied more than two or three percent. Food is your friend, pal.

    Edit: I see that was already addressed. Good luck cutting, man!

    I would say you look to be around 12% or so, definitely lower than 15%.

    I would also say he's less then 15, but far from 12 . I do have a question though. You don't seem to be carrying much muscle and if you lost another 11-13 lbs you may be lean but would also be very slight and, no offence intended, weedy looking. I would attempt a slow bulk, whilst limiting fat gain, and then cut again for a couple of months or so.
