Shedding Weight, When?

Ive finally reached the weight that I wanted to reach…which is 195…I wanna drop down to 185 with only losing body fat…I know I should Maintain my 195 weight for a while…any suggestions on how long before I start working on shredding bodyfat?

I would wait 2 months before beginning to cut. You could keep calories at a maintenance level and continue to work out hard.

You would keep BW the same, but see a shift in body comp. Then begin to cut after that. If you start to cut now, you probably won’t hold onto your hard earned gains.
