Hi everyone,
I am 172cm tall and weigh 114kg - female.
I have a goal to lose 30kg by 1Oct.
I do CrossFit 4-5 times per week but have a desk job and pretty much sit down for the rest of the day. I feel strong when lifting but really need to restric food to reach the weight I want to be by oct.

My TDEE = 2632cal / 11,000 kJ

What is the max calories/kJ I can cut so I am only losing fat and not muscle?

    Losing more muscle than necessary happens when you lose weight to fast. Keep the chart in cmriverside's post in mind and be patient. Good luck!
