      I've been bulking since February and I hate my body right now, so I want to cut for the first time and get as low as possible!

      Any advice?

      My diet today...

      4 Whey protein shakes for breakfast
      worked out
      ate a turkey sandwich with whole wheat bread extra turkey and mayo (I can't eat it without mayo...)
      3 cups of pasta, it did not have enriched wheat in it but it was a white wheat.
      1 date cause I saw it on the counter lol


      Let's say I eat like this regularly is that going to allow me to lose weight? I want to lose about 25 pounds by my birthday, that's how much weight I've gained so far.

      The others answered it, but I want to add that there's no reason to lose ALL of the weight you gained during the bulk as some of it is muscle. You need to do ALOT of reading.

      My cut starts now...

      I decided to start cutting today as well I did some research. heres some general nutrition info I've found

      Maintenance calories subtract 15% - 20%
      I'm 190 lbs so I decided to do a 500 cal deficit with the goal to lose 1-1.5lbs per week but you will be much lower in cal deficit, unless you want to lose muscle mass.

      I couldn't figure out macros by grams but this percentage system seemed to be around what I calculated

      Proteins: 50%
      Cals: 20%
      Fats: 30%

      refeed at maintnance calories with this percentage for macros (this is for someone who is 190lbs)
      Protein: 50
      Carbs: 35
      Fats: 15 (around 50 grams)

      the fatter you are the less refeeds you should do and the leaner you become, refeed more often.

      Hopefully this cuts out some of the work for you.

      I know I just want to get around in the 130 region, I want to be more cut then when I was when I started lifting.
      I don't think I need to do any reading lol...

      I'm totally lost in your post bro... I've talked to several very cut people and they all say just to lower your daily caloric needs by 500 for a 1-2 pounds lost a week.
