    If for example my maintenance cal were 3000 and I wanted to be in a large deficit, would a 500-800 calories deficit from food AND 500-800 calories burned through exercise be too aggressive?

    Just some background info it’d be for a male, 6’2 260lbs wanting to lose approx 45lbs

    Looking forward to your response and appreciate this amazing platform you’ve created 🙏🏻🙏🏻

    Hey Joe, appreciate the response.
    This was for my uncle and I was struggling to articulate why being so aggressive out the gate with a deficit isn’t sustainable long term. You answered it perfectly thank you so much 🙏🏻🙏🏻
