    So I've been cutting for a few weeks now but I've noticed something a little strange. I started @ 196 lbs or so and I've been losing exactly 1 pound a week; however, I'm only eating ~ 2000 calories a day.

    I just arbitrarily picked this number to see how it went, and I've been making gains/losing weight. However, I realise it's >500 below maintenance for me, so I'm wondering if I'm losing weight but since I'm eating a bunch of high GI carbs still, some of it is insta-storing as fat?

    I'm pretty much sedintary except for heavy lifting once a day.

    Any input?

    I've been on/(mostly off) for the past few years. Maybe about 8mos.-1 year good lifting out of the past 3 years.

    lifts @ squat 205x3, bench 205x1, deadlift 325x2 or 300x3 (all within past week)
