NEPA is key when trying to drop weight/fat but not laying waste to the muscle you've earned.

I'm in a moderately different camp in that I'd advise high protein, moderate fat, moderate carbs. Not quite Zone, but something that may resemble 1/3, 1/3, 1/3 of each macro give or take a few grams or %'s along the way.
this works. did it recently to drop a weight class. low volume. SS volumes may be a bit high but whatever, stay frosty, even if that means you get in for 3 sets of squats and no accessory work. yes carbs, ditch the metcons, take long walks or light running if you have to. expect to take a step back for a couple weeks or more and you'll get there, Justin.
