    Hey bro, had great results last year in my first cycle you suggested, thanks again. I have a multi part question. First, when cutting calories how long should I go without seeing weight loss before reducing my intake further? I calculated my TDE and it gave me between 2055 and 2500 cals a day depending on if I was active or sedentary that day at work. I'm 250 lbs and it's hard to hit my macros at this calorie level. Should I sacrifice my 1g protien per body lbs. In order to keep the calories in that range? I have been eating about 100g of carbs a day from veg.and whole grain bread. My fast intake is also about 100g a day. Mostly from baked chicken thighs. I'm definitely a endomorph. Thanks for your time and help.

    I'd have to see your pics, diet and see your progression, so because I have not, I am going to speak more generally. 

    First, don't think about calories. Think about your macros. Keep the protein high at all times. I wouldnt let protein go below 250g a day if you can help it. Then remember, losing fat is not just about reducing. Remember food is what your metabolism continue to move fast. Once you take any of your food out, your body will evenutally adjust to the lower intake. So you have to be smart and keep food high while losing fat.You can lose fat in other ways. There are lots of tools to pick from. So you can move macros around, getting more out of your food when output is high. You can add a fat burner. You can add cardio. You can use a cleaner food source. There are a lot of steps you can take before dropping food at all. 

    I can usually see how one of my guys is responding and my job is to predict which one of those tools we want to use next. 

    From three, next step might be less food. I would wor with your carbs and fats, leaving the protein high.
