    Well in that case the answer depends on what your maintenance cals are. Don't cut them too fast or you will risk losing too much muscle. Also, make sure you are getting adequate vitamins and minerals in your diet when you are cutting calories.

    If that is the case I would probably stay around maintenance cals for a while since the workouts themselves will put you in a deficit and a lot of your gains will be beginner gains and regaining what you lost from before.
