Would you say that for a 6'4 guy at ~115kg, 1200kcal is too much of an extreme cut if im not doing anything?

Would you say that for a 6'4 guy at ~115kg, 1200kcal is too much of an extreme cut if im not doing anything? (literally, im sitting in my room doing nothing). Id add multivitamin supplement to counteract the lack of micros.

      Yeah, that was my goal. I was planning to drop to like 90kg

      Move more instead of starving yourself like a retard, you're big enough that you can already hit a large deficit on higher calories. Ignoring the fact that on this low you'll probably fuck up, fail and regain, it's horrible for your thyroid (metabolism) and hormones like testosterone.

      I used to do cardio regularly alongside lifting, but i cant for the life of me restrain myself. I dont gain weight but i constantly keep myself in this zone of ~110-115kg. I dont have trouble keeping my calorie intake at a low level if i dont do anything, but when im lifting and cardioing i pretty much devour food so shit that i lost during cardio i negate.

      Aim for around a kg of loss a week,52 kilos a year,way more than enough for anybody not morbidly obese.
      Just keep eating less if you dont see the scale move and repeat.

      Yeah, my idea was to just go nuclear for 3 months, and then maintaining at ~2200-2400. I think that should be around good for a person who lifts and does cardio on regular of my height.

        When you say 'cardio' and lifting what does that entail? The best cardio for weight loss is LISS like basic walking. Running and extended moderate cardio is terrible because it exhausts you, makes you hungry and is significantly more catabolic. Same thing with lifting for more than 45-60mins

          Stationary bike for cardio, burn ~200 calories in 20min, lifting is 6 days a week, 2x chest + shoulders, 1 day for upper back, 1 day for lower back, 1 day for arms and 1 day for legs

            No shit, the point isn't that starving you doesn't burn fat, its that a steep deficit damages your organs, which it fucking does retard. You don't just get away with depriving your body of over half the nutrients it requires to maintain homeostasis, without seriously harming yourself.

                I'm 5'11 and have never been 200 lbs in my life. You are coping hard for your poor decision making because you want to believe you know what you're doing but you actually have 0 idea how to control yourself.

                Why exactly would it be so bad? If i based the cut on mostly protein and carbs with little fat so that fat solluble vitamins get something to be dissolved in and rest would come from my body fat wouldnt that make it kind of balanced? Multivit tablet should keep most of the deficiencies at bay shouldnt it?

                Because you are a 6'4 250lb man, you have a certain amount of blood volume, it takes a lot from your body to reduce that, the faster you lose weight the harder your body will work to adjust to that, meanwhile your kidneys will be working overtime to recycle your own body mass into energy to stay alive. It's just not a good idea to restrict calories that much. This will make you feel like shit and you will have a worse body composition post cut if you do this instead of taking a more sustainable approach to it.

                How many calories would you recommend in that case then out of curiosity?

                I would use a TDEE (total daily energy expenditure) calculator to determine your daily energy expenditure and then reduce that number by 20%. I looked it up already and your BMR (basal metabolic rate) at your height and weight (not sure on your age but I assumed 20s) is like 2250 calories. That's how many calories you burn literally laid up in bed not moving a single muscle. Just by being up walking around your house occasionally and sitting your chair and reading/watching/playing games you burn a few hundred more. You want to be weighing yourself first thing in the morning before drinking or eating anything daily and track it.

                you are just repeating broscience you saw on facebook posted by soccermoms
                I bet you also believe that you need to eat every 3 hours to keep your metabolism burning so you can "turn fat into muscle"

                I know but if you actually want to keep the weight off you need to change your lifestyle. Being at a lower weight requires you to eat less permanently, and taking a more drastic cut reduces your already low chance of compliance.

                Like i said, i dont have a problem with keeping my calorie intake at a certain level to not gain weight. I used to be even fatter but i didnt go back up above 115, and especially above 120 ever since i lost it, the case is just that i have problem of eating less than what my TDEE is while im active, not eating more and gaining weight.

                So ~1600-1700 should be good? That would require me to go much longer. Should i just lower my lift weights till then? im at 77.5kg for 5 for bench and 52.5kg for OHP, and calorie deficit is killing me beacuse the numbers arent going up at all and i struggle even with those right now.

                I mean even at those calories i should be losing about a kg per week shouldnt I? Isnt a kg of body fat equal to ~7700 calories? If my TDEE is ~2300-2400 and im at 1600-1700 im still burning ~700 kcal daily.

                Can't be more true than that. When I was cutting on approx. 1400 calories a day, I was also running 3-4 times a day. With at least one day doing weight training. After 3-4 week, I started feeling my kidneys "cramp up" (english is not my native language, that's the best description) near ends of my run (I remember first right one would cramp up and than left). I ignored it a couple of times since a 10 minute rest would fix everything. But cramps would came more earlier during my runs and get more intense. I took a week off and started to increase my calories consumption a bit. After that I stared going to gym 1-2 times a week and I didn't have any more problems with kidneys.

        Extreme crash diets are tempting because of the quick results but they're not healthy for sustainable. You should
        develop regular eating habits instead of healthy eating habits on the other end of the spectrum
