    quick little one month cut?

    i've been bulking for about 6 months now, i gained 20 lbs so far, my bodyfat went from 14% to 16% during these 6 months. I am currently 5'10 189 lbs.

    I have never done a cut before since i am fairly new to these bulking/cutting, so if I want to do a short one month cut how should i go about cutting back on my calories?

    Right now i'm eating 3700 calories a day, so i was thinking about eating 600 calories less, so 3100 for the first week, then maybe subtract 200 a week for the next 3 weeks.

    How much bodyfat do u guys think i have a chance of losing within this month??

    Right now my long term plan is to bulk for 4 months, then a 1 month cut, then bulk again for 4 months and a 3 month cut, and all that will add up to one year.

    you said 600 calories less each day. 600x7 = 3600. That's a lb of fat a week. Or 200x7 = 1400/3500 = 2.5 weeks for a lb of fat.

    if you count calories and can really cut by the given amount said, I would say yes. Water weight will be lost aswell. I would aim more for the slow 200 and just keep lifting heavy.
