    1500 calories enough?

    So i'm cutting right now, and I started Monday. I've been eating 1500-1600 calories everyday, and working out 30-90 minutes a day in the weight room (Some Max OT workouts are shorter). My macros are in check... about 40p/30c/30f

    I know a deficit is a deficit, and you will lose weight as long as you stick to it and truly count your calories.

    I was just wondering though, how long will it be before my body adjusts to this calorie intake? My BF isn't too high.. maybe around 15% as of today. I know as you get into the lower BF it becomes harder to lose fat.

    Will there be a complete stall? Or will it just become slower?

    Looking at your height and weight, your maintenance will never be as low as 1500 so you'd be losing weight no matter what. However, you might start retaining water as often happens and that will create the illusion of a "stall". If you do stall and it's been 3-4 weeks, then consider dropping your cals but keep the protein high of course.

    Alright bro, thanks for that. Needed some reassurance haha. I know for sure I'm going to pack on the weight once I hit my fourth week hits. I have to end my animal cuts cycle, which means no diuretics to make me piss like mad haha.
