Awesome.
Have you figured out what your current maintenance is, calorie wise?

Thanks....i'm just 2 months back into it after a 10 month layoff after adopting my litte girl but before that i was around 5000 cals give or take 200. I was gaining pretty fast and it was probably too fast. i'm still trying to pin point it down but my guess would be probably between 3000 to 3500...I need to start my fitday acount again and figure it out.
As far as cutting as you can see i've never been big on it...tried it a couple times but honestly i didn't try too hard at it. Seem like on other forums when i would ask advise i was getting it from 18 year old kids who barely weighed 150 trying to tell me how to do it and i don't think that applies to me.

Cutting is fairly simple.

Track your calories and find your maintenance calories. Subtract by 500 calories and thats the total you eat each day. I suggest a 50%/30%/20% breakdown being 50% protein, 30% good fats, 20% carbohydrates. Eat your carbs around workouts. Other then that the only other stuff would be, take 10g fish oil daily, take a multi vitamin daily, get 8 hours of sleep and drink at least 1 gallon of water every day.

If you can keep your diet like that and train with weights you should have no problems cutting. Aim for at most 1.5 pounds of fat per week, its not nascar and there's no hurry.

You could try a PSMF like I did... lost almost 10 pounds in 1.5 weeks and was stronger in the end of it.

I hate dieting down so starving yourself (well not actually starving) for only a shot period of time is better for me. At your BF% you could lose a lot of fat on a PSMF.

OK...i'm going to try a cut but i will need help.
I'm able to eat 4 meals at work, including breakfast and 2 to 3 at home...so 350 to 400 per meal?

Track what you eat for 2 weeks to figure out how much you are eating to maintain your current weight. Lower that by 10-20% and adjust as necessary.

If you are going to go with your estimate of 3500 cals for maintenance, then 3000 spread over 6 meals is 500. Adjust as necessary.

Sorry to burst your bubble but 6-7 lbs of that is water/glycogen.

Of course, but 4 lbs of fat in less than two weeks is a wonderful rate.

Amazing rate to say the least, the fastest I recommend anyone lose fat regardless of their situation.

Where do you find information on PSMF diets, I've tried searching these forums and can't find any solid information on it
