Well I think that cutting fat is might be difficult, Try to eat less, if you want to cut your fat, drink one or two glasses of water before meals, this will make you feel more full and so you won't eat so much, and always try to do regular exercise, and also take proper diet while doing exercise, always go for a walk,

How much weight loss a week do you think would put you at risk for overtraining?
Sorry for my late response, my first response was if you were actually cutting for a fight or something. It was is very easy to get feelings similar to overtraining when you are cutting and still training. Did you wrestle in school or anything like that? Practices right before a tournament, for me and my teams at least, they were always much harder due to be hungry as hell and thirsty as hell and sore as hell. As G-Land has been (rightly so) preaching, you get to learn yourself and your limit and for me at least, that was when it became easy.

I dont know how much weight loss a week would lead to over training, in just about all things fitness related most things are very individualized, so you should find out what feels best/works best for you to reach your goals.

I heartily accept the motto, "That government is best which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically.

I usually cut just about 7-10 pounds right before my fights.

Many people not involved in combative sports do not understand why anyone subject themselves to water and food restriction in the first place to cut weight. I usually explain it with examples of weight classes.The kickboxing legend was controversial weight class based on who cried foul in the game has never competed since.

Especially training your body needs the nutrients still to build and repair muscles, keep your organs healthy and keep other nutrient levels correct.

There is almost an art to properly cutting weight and cutting your food intake. 90% of people who think they are fine cutting 20lbs fast before a fight and starving themselves are doing massive damage to their body.

If you are interested I can direct you toward some stuff for you to read up on.
Can you send me the link?

I always eat balanced food and do yoga in the morning. Cycling and walking are my hobbies because they reduce my weight. I loose 10 pound. I feel refresh now a days.
