      Ok so i will be going back to gym next week,before 4 month layoff i was 136 now it looks like i will be bettween 154-159 upon return.

      Now i went and bought all the healthy food and picked out a solid routine,it comes out to 1793 cals a day.


      now if i do end up at 159 it will be a 592 calorie defecit. now is that too much or is it ok?

      How quickly do you need to lose this amount of weight?
      How concerned are you about retaining as much muscle as possible?
      How concerned are you about keeping up your performance in the gym?

      Don't fret over exact calorie amounts, you will drive yourself nuts over something so marginal you won't ever notice.

      How tall are you and are you sure your maintenance is only 2400 kcals? A 600 kcal defecit isn't bad but eating under 1800 kcals for a prolonged period of time could be.

      No it's fine, just don't start pushing it bigger and bigger

      ^ I think the fact that your total calorie intake is under 1800 cals is more of a concern then a 600 cal deficit.
