Ok,

1, What exactly are you not progressing on? Strenght gains? Muscle Mass? Fat loss?

2, Detail your diet

3, Detail your current program.

Remember, that after a certain period of training [post newbie-ism], you will be unable to gain muscle and strength while seriously cutting, unless you are hugely genetically gifted. You should ask yourself if you have enough muscle on your frame to cut, or if you would prefer to bulk further before cutting down while maintaining as much of your muscle as possible.

don't get tagled up in all the systems and jargon.

Eat less, think about food less, move more, exercise more. Focus on becoming athletic and fit. In time everything will fall into place all by itself. Most importantly don't do it to reach a vanity goal, your goal should be to have fun. if fitnes is fun to you, you're guaranteed to make progress.
