Any suggestions? Wondering how it looks...my maintenance is right around 3000 calories, so 2500 is approx 17% of a cut in calories...this is for a rest day...on lifting days i will add a couple hundred calories more...small shake with skim milk and whey protein...

Currently 174lbs. at 18%...would like to lower bodyfat to 8% or so eventually..

Fats and Proteins look solid, with carbs as the cal buffer. Well done!

Post workout: I've been told milk digests slowly so it's not ideal to mix with your shake, since you want that protein readily available within the first 15 minutes after working out. Hard for me because I love milk, but just seperate and take the milk 45 min later than the protein. Might want to look into things that actually speed up the protein intake like dextrose.
