Im in serious need of losing 10-15 lbs of fat now, but I am alos in need of a rest week. Can I start the cut the week AFTER my week off, or is it best to wait another week or so longer after the rest week before starving my body :)

Sorry if its a dumb question but ive never cut before.

Yep, maint. for the week off, then prepare for pure hell. I would take a week off if you feel that you're needing it.

I was thinking more about the week after the rest week ... should I go straight into the cut or do one more bulk week? Wasnt sure if beginning a cut immediately after a rest might encourage muscle loss.

when you say pure hell do you mean the first week of cutting?
