plateau from a fat loss perspective if you lose enough to hit maintenance. But then it doesn't even matter how fast you were losing weight, you were going to reach maintenance at that weight/activity level anyways regardless of whether you hit 170 lbs, say, from cutting 1lb/wk or 1.5 lbs/wk.
Calorie calculators are kind of BS. I am supposed to be dropping a lb a week at my maintenance.
1. It wont at the start
2. Like I said metabolism is super dynamic... eventually that 700-800 deficit becomes zero, at the expense of pretty much everything related to gainzzz, without some outside factor (ECA, yohimbine, clen, whatever killed that girl) fooling your body into not going into starvation mode. Maintenance can vary like crazy. I was maintaining at 3000-3200kcal when I started my cut.... I am prob down to like 2500-2600 now. Another 4 months w/o changing anything or letting my metabolism reset, I wouldnt doubt it dropping to 2000 or so. Just take it easy, try one thing at a time. I would try the cardio now, then drop shit down 100kcal every 2 weeks. After that start thinking about supplements. If I can't get my shit in gear this month I am prob going to jump on an ECA stack. No need to panic, u just started.
