Is it true that you look worse before you look better when it comes to fat loss?

Question been stuck on 58kg/128lbs 21%bf for a month now :/ need to lose more bf

Hey y'all. So last month I was advised to cut down to 12%bf as people here told me that it would be better to lose fat now than bulk now and have a harder time losing more fat in the future (and at the same time risk losing hard earned muscle while trying to lose the bulked up fat). I've been...

Lifting heavy while on caloric deficit what is really going on?

I have read that you will lose strength while cutting calories and lifting to lose fat. But what actually is happening? If you have excess fat and lifting heavy are you burning the fat at a rate to make up for the calories you need? Do you lose muscle tissue if you cut too many calories?
