    I want to take the next 3 months and lean out - hoping to drop at least 10 - 15 lbs of body fat.

    Using the formula posted in another thread of 15 * bw is maintenance.
    Dropping 30% so 15 * 130=1950-30%(585)=1365 cals/day.
    pro =1 to 1.2g * 130 = 130 to 156g/day
    carbs = 100 to 150 g/day
    the rest in fat g's.

    Is this do able?! Or should I only drop by 20%

    My training is going to be loosely - Leigh Peele's H.E.L.L.

    I welcome any suggestions or criticism.

    I guess it depends on what you mean by "doable". With or without losing some muscle/strength is one question, I suppose.

    Formulas are nice, just be aware that they are only a starting point and not very exact predictors of your maintenance level calories. This also tends to drop in a strict diet.
