I’m 39, 210lbs, 14%BF. My goal is drop back to about 10%BF. I just finished putting on about 15lbs over the last three months and I would like to retain as much muscle as I can. To me this means lots of protein and no high intensity cardio. While bulking, I usually eat about 3400-3600 cal. I've cut back to about 3050 cals to get from 215 down to 210. My strength is holding up, but I can definitely feel the energy level has dropped and my muscles don’t feel as full anymore. Then I seem to have gotten stuck at 210. My big question, is cutting back to 2500 cals risking muscle? Does anyone have any suggestions? I've spent years trying to get from 165 to my weight now; losing weight is completely new to me.
