    Started lifting and losing weight 3 months ago

    I have cut my calories and began lifting

    I have got stronger while losing weight
    I started at 290 now 260-258
    I’m trying not to decrease the calories to low so I don’t hurt my metabolism
    17 btw
    I’m looking at it as a lifestyle change and not a diet/ temporary
    I hit each body part at least once a week


    My lifts are
    225x3 bench
    225x8 on squat

    Hi and welcome. Try carb cycling to keep your metabolism going, I find it works really well.

    You're looking at it the right way already. As a lifestyle, rather than a diet. You're 17, so your metabolism is going to do a lot of the work. Don't worry too much about your diet aside from keeping fat controlled, carbs before workout (and careful with them before sleep), whilst ensuring you're hitting your protein. You don't really want to mess around with low fats (manipulates homeostasis) and low carbs (energy levels). Instead, I would highly suggest changing your training program. You mentioned you hit each body part once a week; this probably means that you're following a "bro split" (Mon - Chest, Tues - Shoulders, Wed - ...). I would possibly suggest training full body 3 days a week and incorporating cardio 2 days a week.
