Hey guys just about to go on my first cut after bulking from 137-205. Kinda nervous about losing hard-earned muscle but i need to get rid of some of this fat. looking to cut down to 185lbs. I work out 4-5 days a week depending on my schedule. I don't do any cardio for the time being.
My cutting macros stand at: Carbs-211. Fats-78. Prot-214.5
Calorie total-2400 (for cut)
Does everything look good? Should I add some HIIT? Do you think 185 will be too low/high?
Got a couple pics to go along with. 2 before i started lifting/bulking, and 3 very recent pics.

you don't have to drop that much bf honestly bro,looking pretty solid
Why are you starting your diet at 2,400 cals? You should start a little below your current intake and then gradually drop from there.
Hey thanks! I would just like to have some vasularity and some visible abs
Great advice from Chris. Yeah, I recommend taking a couple hundred calories out of your carbs on non training days. Are you in a rush?
No, my day is actually pretty laid back. Besides lifting the only exercise I get is walking to classes.
I would wait until after Christmas(if you celebrate) to start dieting. Too much good food to enjoy.

It's your choice, but since you have some height, maybe consider bulking up again after you shed a few love pounds. Or hell, just continue bulking. You can easily get passed 205 in the future.
Currently 6 ft, 230 lb.

My recommendation is to keep building your foundation. I get clients all the time who want to lean out,but don't have the solid foundation they need first. You are not carrying much fat and if you truly want to gain substantial size take the time and keep building it. I see guys do this all the time where they start gaining a little fat and start dieting down, then go back to gaining and then repeating it over and over. You are self sabotaging yourself by doing this. Now I don't mean to just gain a bunch of scale weight but take your time and build at a nice steady pace.
If anything stay at maintenance for a few months then resume slightly increasing calories.
