I started my cut on June 22. On workout days I eat 217g pro, 182g cho,90 g fat. on non workout days,i eat 200g pro, 125g cho, 100g fat.

Since that day, almost 3 weeks ago, I have lost 3 lbs with minimal decrease in strength.

The question I have is that, the slower the cut is it a better chance of retaining muscle? So instead of losing 1 lb a week, i lose 1 lb every 1.5 to 2 weeks, will this better ensure i keep my muscle.

I am 174 lbs, 5'10 and age 26.

The slower you cut, the less likely you are to lose LBM. Thats the main reason for just doing slightly less cals than your Maint Cals.

It looks like you are track. If your happy with your progress keep doing what your doing.
