    You'll need to post your bodyweight and activity level before anyone can tell you if your macros are suitable for cutting.

    Not true. Theoretically speaking a diet higher in carbs will actually be better for fat loss than a diet higher in fats.

    ^^This

    Lyle McDonald Interview
    One topic that almost always seems to cause debate and controversy is the issue of calories. Some claim that there is some kind of ‘metabolic advantage’ associated with low-carbohydrate diets?

    Here’s the basic problem: low-carbohydrate diets cause a significant amount of water weight loss through a variety of mechanisms (including the relationship of glycogen and water, a reduction in insulin which leads to greater fluid and electrolyte excretion via the kidneys, and a direct diuretic effect of ketones).
    I’m a fairly little guy and I can drop 5-7 pounds (about 2.5 kilograms) in about 2 days just from water loss. Bigger folks can drop more. Powerlifters often drop 10-15 pounds (nearly 7 kilograms) or more by cutting out carbohydrates the day before a meet.
    By the same token, I’ll gain that same 5-7 pounds back when I carbohydrate-load. It’s just a shift in water balance. And those shifts tend to predominate in the short-term.
    So when you’re just looking at weight loss, the water loss becomes a very significant issue as it often more than exceeds the reported difference between the two different diets. When the difference in total weight loss is only a few kilograms, and you have several kilograms of water being lost, that hardly makes a good case for a metabolic advantage.

    calculate your maintenance , then figure out that ratio, then play with the numbers (adhering to the ratio) to get your 500 calorie deficit from maintenance.

    thats what i did. anyone with knowledge correct me if im wrong, im still in the learning process too

    calculate your maintenance , then figure out that ratio, then play with the numbers (adhering to the ratio) to get your 500 calorie deficit from maintenance.
