I am 5'7.5" and weigh around 175 lbs at approximately 15% body fat from what I reckon. I could be off a point or two in either direction. I am one week into a diet that I intend upon doing for 3 or 4 weeks. After that, I plan on bulking for about 6 weeks before dieting again.
I want to repeat this until I eventually reach about 10% whereupon I'll focus on bulking for 8-12 weeks and dieting for 3-4 weeks to maintain around 10%. I really dislike dieting for long periods and want to structure it in a way that will keep me into fitness mentally and physically.
Is there anything bad about this short-term diets like this? If it can get the job done well enough, I will be happy. It doesn't have to be 100% optimal.
