    Do I need to lean down/cut?

    I have been working out at the gym like a madman for the last few months.

    Here are my current stats

    Height 5ft7.5
    Weight 226 lbs
    Body fat percentage 24.8

    Judging by my current stats do you think I need to slim down a bit or am I fine the way I am?

    I usually ignore a BF% number because there are very few reliable methods of measuring this.

    Having said that, at that height and weight, you must be carrying a lot of excess fat - so the answer is probably yes.

    What weight should I aim to cut down to?

    A picture would help a lot.

    Assuming you want to look lean and have muscle definition - and you also spent years gaining a reasonable amount of muscle - then I would expect a typical lean weight to be around 170lbs.
