Hi im very new to cutting, seeing as i've never actually done a cut. Recently injured my right arm and looks like I wont be lifting heavy for around three week, so thought its perfect time to do a mini cut. I'm 5"8 205 pounds around 18% body fat.
I was thinking maybe drop cals to around 3,250 a day. And keep lowering if i'm not losing enough weight. What's a realistic goal a day and week to lose weight. Also i'm concerned about preserving as much muscle as possible.
I was thinking going up to around 300 grams of protein try and eat more fish and beef and remove all additional fats and only eat complex carbs and having the bulk of my carbs in the morning then building down to no carbs just before bed. I will then train around 3 times a week as im pretty much unable to use my right arm. With one day being a heavy leg day where ill increase my carbs by around 500 cals for that day. With the other two days being high reps and more core work.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
