    Cutting calories dictates fat loss. Just workout out TDEE then deduct 500 calories a day and aim to lose 1-2lbs a week. As you are active you will just have more calories to play with.

    Use an TDEE online calculator to estimate your calories and if you start losing too much weight too quickly just increase calories to compensate. Make sure you follow a good nutrition plan (see stickies in nutrition section). If you carry on progressing on the 5X5 and get enough protein you wont cause hardly any effect on muscle loss by doing lots of exercise.

    I thought it'd help prevent muscle loss after doing so much cardio each day, is this not the case?

    lol surprisingly it doesn't really effect me, I train so much, when I wake up I eat a high protein breakfast, go gym, high protein post workout, chill, go have a high protein meal before boxing, then high protein after boxing, then a meal before jiu jitsu, then another to finish, then a meal before bed, im always active I barely ever get a chance to sit around,

    You only need about 0.8g per lb of bodyweight to stave off muscle loss.
