Even to be cutting I don't think that you are getting enough calories. I would add protein of some kind to 2 of the 1st 3 meals. I would even add one more meal right before you go to bed. Maybe a another protein shake with some flax see oil. Meal 5 might need some vegatables. Some steamed vegatables would be good and I would probably even add a complex carb to meal 4.

Even with all those additions I mentioned, if you stuck to the diet, you would find yourself losing fat and maybe even gaining some muscle in the process.

If nothing else consider this a bump for someone else to see it.

Definitely not enough protein. Your first 3 meals are virtually protein-free! What's with all the orange juice? That doesn't fill you up and adds tons of fructose.

Yogurt? More sugar. Try to get some complex carbs like oatmeal, veggies, wholegrain bread, etc. instead.

Virtually no fat. Why? Fat should make up 20-30% of your calories. Get some flax seed oil, fish fats, olive oil, and eggs in you. You'll feel fuller and your body will run more efficiently.

Try counting up your calories and macronutrient percentages. http://www.fitday.com

You should aim to eat 500 calories below maintenance, with a split of something like 40% protein 40% carbs 20% fat. A lot of people have also been very succesful with 33/33/33%.

If you try to pull off the diet you planned, you'll most likely lose tons of muscle and feel hungry all the time, possibly leading to a mad cheating spree.

More complex are sweet potatoes instead of regular, brown rice instead of white rice, 100% whole wheat bread. These are the ones that I stick with but I'll get back to you on some more so you can more to choose from.

You have a lot of calories coming from fruit an fruit juice. Cut those out, or at least limit it to 1 piece of fruit a day. You need to be getting a serving or more of protein with each meal. Your calories look to be too low and your fat looks way too low.

what I'm trying to do is to lose sh$tloads of fat in the least amount of time, therefore no fat.

I'll change my diet a bit and post the new one here, but now I'm off to school. Thanx once again folks. :)

Eating no fat will make your body hold on to the fat it has.

Eating no fat is retarded. It won't do you any good. Cut some of that fruit out.
