So my BMR is around 2100 and I want to eat 1500 calories a day for my deficit so I can be down 30 lbs by mid November which is my goal. I plan to work out every day and run a lot. I also plan to eat a high protein diet. People are telling me that eating at this deficit will cause me to be skinny fat and have loose skin etc. However I don't understand how this could happen if I am working out very hard every day and lifting weights while on a high protein diet. I do see it being possible if I just ate only 1500 cals and sat around all day. Can someone explain this to me and tell me if it will be possible to drop 30 lbs by mid November using this goal? I am only around 40 lbs overweight for my age / height. The work outs I plan to do are all apart of a workout plan I do and are very intense I do end up working out each muscle through out the week

there's a lot of nonsense here, but before we approach it, you should learn the difference between BMR and TDEE. 2100 is NOT how many calories you burn a day if that's your BMR.

Are you confused? I said my BMR is 2100 which it is. I know what a TDEE is. And I never mentioned a TDEE.

explain to me why are you aiming to eat below your BMR then.
the caloric deficit will be huge, your TDEE could be 3000 or higher. will you lose weight? yes. will it happen in a healthy way? no.

Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) + Activity Factor (AF) = Total Daily Energy Expenditure (TDEE) - 10% = A recommended rate of weight loss that should yield ~ -1lbs/week.

BMR is the amount of calories burned if you where comatose, the minimum amount of energy your body requires to function. It is not advisable to consume a deficit of this figure.

Downsides of a sustained too high calorie deficit:
- muscle loss
- decline in testosterone
- strength loss
- loss of energy / feeling lethargic
- loss of motivation to achieve goals
- feelings of depression
- being hungry and moody
- decline in self-esteem and self confidence
