    dieting within healthy body fat struggles

    hey folks,

    so I started seriously bodybuilding (8hrs sleep, consistent training, not missing a meal, etc.) not too long ago, saw good results and I started dieting about a month ago and writing down my weight upon waking (have done that since first day of training). I started at 2200kcal everyday and after two weeks i cut rest days calories down to 2000kcal and my weight barely moves down. On workout days I have to use a **** ton of willpower just to go for a 10 min walk,I am getting weaker on most lifts and the littlest things are irritating or upsetting to me. For some reason i am still motivated to never miss a gym workout surprisingly. The thing is that my calorie deficit is very mild at the current rate of loss which is barely existant and I am just going from my starting 20% BF to maybe 16% so totally healthy. I practically have no definition on my back so i am not overestimating my BF. Is it normal that your body would resist this much to dropping a few pounds even when you optimize nutrition down to the micronutrients (cronometer)? Last night i even woke up from hunger even though I made sure my calories were evenly spaced with the 3 meals and i ate a big portion of veggies with dinner so i wouldnt be hungry at night. What do you guys think? Is this normal with the first consistent calorie deficit and eventually your body gets used to it or what? I have also made sure that I always get a minmum of 8hrs of actual sleep.

    thanks for any advice!

    Your calorie counting may be off. It is for most people as most of us think we are eating 2000 calories a day, for instance, but it's really 2300-2500.
