If you want to try anyway, you're not going to do that eating -500cal below maintenance. That's a lb a week, so unless you're doing mad cardio (even then tbh), you're gonna find it hard.
Well, I don't exactly know how much I need to lose to get to where I want to be. I've gained about 10lbs the last few months but I expect that to be from the gym. I've really picked up since late July. I want to lose stomach fat. My chest has gained a more muscley tone over the last few months so I can manage that. I really just want to lose the fat. I don't have a huge gut by any means and when I wear most hoodies, jerseys, etc. you'd never expect me to have one. I'll take a hit in muscle if I must, just nothing too significant. I can easily work that back up. My main thing is just my thighs and stomach.
