Cutting for summer
Im currently trying to cut for the summer and just wanted to check that my nutrition is in check. I'm 16, been lifting for almost 6 months now. I'm 78 kg. I workout 5-6 times a week (strength training) and usually do cardio 1-3 times during the week after working out. I also recently started to take walks in the morning in a fasted state as I've read that that improves fat loss too. I eat pretty clean and have been for about a month now since I started cutting. I use my fitness pal to calculate what I eat during the day and my macros are 50/30/20 (carbs/protein/fat). currently on 1800 calories a day. Any tips to cutting guys? Any help would be appreciated, Thanks.

At your size I would just focus on a little less carbs, a bit more protien and eating at maintenance or 10% over and getting strong. As long as you are eating clean you should do just fine.

I would say that at 16, 1800 cals isn't enough. Especially of you're lifting hard and heavy. Also, turn the protein/ carb ratio around.
To be honest, if that avi pic is you, I wouldn't worry about cutting. I'd be more worried with adding muscle than losing fat.

He should be cutting at 2000 not 1400 if he's counting everything that goes in his mouth and no cheat days that's almost 25 pounds of fat in 3 month

If your goal is Fat loss, IMO anything over 1-1.5 lbs a week is more muscle than fat. Your pic looks fine and I would look into adding size as that will fill you out more and in the end you will look bigger while still being lean.
Look into TUT (time under tension) methods for training. It will help you lean down while making your stronger. And you wont have to adjust your calories to loose weight. But as it been said you are probably eating not enough isf only at 1800. You seem active enough where 2500 should be a min.
If you are still set on loosing Fat and not weight, think of fat loss and everything used for it as tools. You dont use them all at one time, you use one at a time to get the job done.
Start with diet, though for you I would skip this part and go into adding 2-3 times a week of HIIT after traing for 15-20 min.
When that stalls out, add in a thermo like Dexaprine, or subtract 100 cal from your diet.
Before you decide if you "stalled" out give it 2 weeks and make sure you are following your routine.
