    Cutting Advice - Should I bump up to maintaince?

    Hi All,

    I started my first cut at the start of the year. I’m really happy how it’s going and I’m dropping weight at a good rate. I was around 183lbs (ish) and now I’m at 178lbs.

    My question is Someone mentioned before that on a cut that after a few weeks you should shift back up to maintainable for a week or two? Because the body adapts or something? Is this highly recommended? If so when and for how long?

    In terms of my goal, I want to get to 165 lbs so there’s quite a few weeks to go.

    Not after a few weeks, after a few MONTHS "maybe" if you really need to for those losing large amounts of weight over a long period of time. But going from 183 to 165 you should be able to do in 1 shot without a diet break.
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.

    Depending on how your body is responding a few more weeks from now you might actually have to cut an additional 200 calories, not add.
