so i wanna cut a bit for the summer so i decided to do some math... im tracking my calories right now to find my Maintenance and when i do im gunna start eating 500 less than that. I did some math. Right now i'm 170 at about 16%. IF i lose 10 lbs of fat then i will be at 160 with only 10%. IS it reasonable to plan for this to take 6-8 weeks or will it take longer. Assuming my diet is great the whole cut. and is there anything i should do differently?

I think it is unreasonable to expect that you will lose *only* 10 lbs of fat on this cut. That would require incredible genetics and drugs. Expect to lose some LBM as well - the goal is to minimize how much you lose.

As for time-frame, 8 weeks seems about right to cut 10 lbs.
