basically if i was to take my bmr and subtract 500 from it that would equal my calories for weight loss correct? my problem is i am not lean so if i was to take my bodyweight and figure out macros from that, i am not sure i would be eating enough to lose weight. also i have no clue what my bodyfat % is. also I dont want to start on a calorie deficit that is too low, because i am afraid of losing too much muscle. basically, my problem is i have never done a legit cut/weight loss program before. I have either done strength training, bodybuilding, working out to workout, and got enough protein and calories to grow or maintain. weight 214, height 5 9, age 22.
