    It's impossible to for sure but I'd peg you around 15% plus or minus.

    As others said, don't get hung up on a specific weight or number. It'll happen when it happens and it will likely take more...

    The lower you go the harder it gets. I've flirted with single digits a few times.

    IMO unless you have a specific goal, living at those ranges isn't worth it. I tend to run my bulks up to 15%...

    I've made gains on several of my cuts including my first big cut in 2010.

    The more trained I get, I stall out on my best lifts, make progress still in my weaker areas during cuts these days -...

    Keto diets are not really that great. You'll lose water weight fast in the beginning - water weight you immediately regain when you add carbs back in. You don't lose effective fat weight any...

    Calorie deficit works.

    Protein shakes are simply a convenient way to supplement protein into your diet.

    I prefer eating meat.

    Broadly speaking muscle size and relative strength for an individual correlate to some extent, but not so much from person to person (if that makes sense). Also, don't confuse arm size with muscle...

    A gram of protein per lb of LEAN body weight (not total body weight) is more than enough. Extra protein beyond that does not build 'extra' muscle.

    High protein diets, however, have proven...

    If you are losing weight and not getting weaker, you likely just had a lot more starting fat than you thought. This is very common.

    P90x is not exactly the best muscle gain program. Crossfit...

    You quoted that this diet is 400-450 less than you usually eat. This right...

    Nicotine represents an independant risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Some variants (vaping, patch, gum) are less unsafe than others (smoking) but nicotine alone isn't exactly healthy. I can't...
