    Everyone one here will tell you to life 3 times a week, but I don't know.

    Try messing with the macros, especially the protein intake. What's your calorie count? I know it's not to much help but I'ma give you what I can.

    I don't know if you've used any PH's before but a H-Drol clone would help. I love the stuff because there are minor sides and you can maintain low carbs without getting lethargic throughout the day.

    Then start at an ~10% deficit. You're at over a 33% deficit right now and that will lead to muscle loss without some chemical assistance.

    I don't like criticising people but I don't think you are getting very good advice here.

    Firstly I can assure you that you are not losing muscle. This is because it has been scientifically documented that people on 800 calorie a day diets who resistance train don't lose a significant amount of fat free mass even over 12 weeks.

    That irrational feeling that you are getting smaller is contagious and the reason why everybody is anxious about losing muscle while losing weight. A diet starts at a 30% calorie deficit and can increase from there depending on the progress you are making. A 10% deficit would be just spinning wheels without any significant progress.

    Secondly prohormones really aren't worth it, especially when you are trying to lose weight. If prohormones have a use its to make people gain weight rapidly. I would personally advise against taking them altogether but if you do take them don't take them when trying to lose weight.

    If he's old enough and does his research, a compound like that would do wonders. They don't sell like they do for no reason.
