Hi everyone, I have been lifting for a little while now (about 4 or 5 months)
I am 17 at 5'10 and 160 lbs. I am at about 14-15% fat. I want to go on a cut because it sems like I have been at 160 lbs for about a month and it just sucks. I want to cut to about 10% or less (the lowest I have ever been is 14%) and then slowly bulk until I get to a point where I want to cut agin.
I came up with a diet but im not sure how good it is for cutting tell me what you guys think.


Breakfast:

7:00am
-1/2 cup of oatmeal 140 cals, 5g protien, 26g carbs, 2.5g fat

-Protien shake(1 scoop)130 cals 23g protien 4g carbs, 2g fat


Lunch:

12:45pm
-Protien bar 358 cals, 33g protien, 34g carbs, 10g fat

-Tuna sandwich tuna+bread
-tuna 175cals, 37g protien, 0g carbs, 2.5g fat
-bread(2 slices)140 cals, 6g protien, 24g carbs, 2g fat

-apple


Pre workout:

4:00pm
-yogurt 90 cals, 6g protien, 17g carbs, 0g fat

-natty pb&j
-nattypb (no idea probably good for me)
-jelly 10 cals 0g protien 4g carbs, 0g fat
bread (2 slices) 140 cals 6g protien 24g carbs 2g fat


Post workout:

5:00pm
-1 can tuna 175 cals 37 g protien 0g carbs 2.5g fat

- prot.shake(2 scoops) 260 cals, 46g protien 8g carbs 4g fat


Dinner:

6:30pm-7:00pm
-1 can tuna 175 cals 37 g protien 0g carbs 2.5g fat

- protien shake(1 scoop) 130 cals 23g prot. 4g carbs 2 fat



Over all:
1,923 cals 253g protien, 145g carbs 34g fat

Should cals be lower? what about prot, carbs and fat?

Usually for dinner I eat with my family and we have some other meat plus a salad and mabey rice or something. I go real light on the rice have a nice salad and some meat.

So tell me what you guys think and how I could change it to make it better.

Thanks in advance

Too many supplements in there. Get more protein from real food. Also, get more good fats into your diet from fresh fish and/or flaxseed oil. Eat more frequently if you can from the minute you wake up until just before bed- every 3 hours is good.

Its hard for me to eat from 8am-noon because im in school same thing with 1pm-3:30pm.

But does my cal intake look good for cutting or is it to high?

Not trying to sound like a prick, but that's no excuse. When you're at home, eat real food. When you're in school, eat real food or supplements. Unless you have a very slow metabolism, that is NOT high at all. I usually cut at about 3200 calories - yes, I'm larger than you, but still... Sacrifice 20-40g of your daily protein intake, and add 20-30g of fat from the sources I mentioned above.

IMHO 0.5g fat per lb of bw, just concentrate on limiting sat. fats
