? on calorie defecit and exercise
So hopefully I can word this question so every one can understand. I know that for cutting you run 500 cal under maintainance. Is there a limit to how many calories you should be burning with exercise? I know this may sound like a goofy question but if you shouldnt have too much of a deficit with your intake I would think that how much your working out would play a factor too.
Im currently working out 2 days followed by 1 day off.(it revolves around my work schedule, I work 24hr shifts) Aiming for an hr to and hr and a half of cardio each day plus weights. Supps are at a minimum

There is no limit to how many calories you burn with exercise, no.
Yes, your exercise level will play a factor. In fact, when you calculate your Maintenance, your activity level plays an important role in the equation.
Also, it's not all about the caloric deficit re INTAKE - you can create a caloric deficit re ENERGY EXPENDITURE (and this is how I would recommend you do it). You could in fact just keep your calories at Maintenance for your CURRENT activity level and just add MORE exercise - probably from cardio, since you don't need to do more resistance work; too much and you won't let your body recover.
Re exercise, do NOT do weights EVERY day - stick to 4-5 times a week tops. Cardio is NOT necessary for fat loss, but if you do not usually do it, then you can add it in - you do NOT need 60-90 minutes a day, though.
I highly recommend that you read The 3 Keys to Fat Loss - this article contains all the information you need to know re nutrition and training for fat loss.
On another note, not sure why you are using Liver Support - if you want to use minimal supplements, you don't need this, since the rest of the supplements you're using are not hormonal. You also want to make sure that you're using a multivitamin, and if not supplementing with, getting all your good fats, protein, and BCAAs requirements/needs through your DIET.

YOu gotta figure out how many calories your consuming each day, and you have to figure out what your BMR is. When you find a calculator for your BMR, you should also be able to add in exercise and figure out what your expending.
Hope this helps, a little.
EDIT: Never mind I see Rosie nailed it.

I am also taking Orange Triad and LG BCAAs.(forgot to put those down) I like the liver support just as a normal supp. The reason the cardio is up there is for getting my endurance up. Not so much for the weight loss. Though yes, it does play a factor. I mix up HITT and moderate intensitity

Anything short of maintanence pretty much aids in fat loss. However, it is important to not overdo it, like going for broke on cardio daily, or doing a whole week of supersets. Diet is still key when it comes to cutting, so the deficit in calories will play the biggest role. I can cut fat REALLY fast- which is why I am choosing to bulk (even though I should probably cut), but at the same time if you cut down too fast you are going to see a noticeable decrease in strength and muscle mass.
