Do you pay much attention to cals?

I know I am always asking annoying questions, but after 2 weeks of eating a lot...I gained weight. I read through bodyrecomp, Whole9, Urban gets diesel, etc and the "eat more, sleep more, train less" doesn't seem to work for me in terms of fat/weight. I started a strict Whole30 on 1/3 and am going to try a calorie deficit along with that. I am OK with comprimising a smidge of muscle loss and performance if it means this stubborn BF will drop!

So at 5'4" 125 what would you suggest for a reasonable calorie deficit? My BMR with activity included seems to be about 2000 cals. Do you think 1600 seems reasonable? I have/am dropping my WODs to 4 per week, 1 day yoga, 1 day run, 1 day complete rest. I sleep at least 8.5 hours per night. Thanks!

Did you gain scale weight or did you gain muscle?

Have you noticed any changes in body composition or clothes fitting looser in some places?
