    Happy with my current build. Now can i slow cut at -200 cal/day?

    I'm where i want to be in terms of muscle, but want to cut about 4-5% bodyfat (18% to 13-14%). As I don't plan to seriously bulk anymore, I think I have the luxury of a slow cut.

    Is a -200 cal/day deficit enough to slowly lose about 1.5 lbs/month or are deficits that small easy for the body to just underhandedly negate?

    You may not have as much muscle as you think. What is your height and weight?
    If you don't get what you want you didn't want it bad enough

    Only way to find out is to try. If a 200 calorie deficit is too slow, make it 300. The smaller the deficit the more important it is for you to track everything very accurately. Some people say they're in a deficit of a certain amount, but they're not counting the calories from condiments they add to their meals, which can add another 100-150 calories a day, and then they didn't count the 75 calories of coffee creamer, and the 150 calories from salad dressing. Maybe they take fish oil that's 35 calories a pill and they take 4 a day - another 140 calories.
