Okay - diet looks not bad, but a little low in cals. I don't know what your maintenance cals are, but I suspect they'd be over 3000 a day at your height and weight? I don't think I'd like to see your cals regularly go much lower than 2400-2500, unless you decide to do something more aggressive, such as PSMF.
On a conventional dieting strategy, a pound or just slightly over a week is prudent. More may cost you too much LBM and drop your metabolism too much.
Protein looks sufficient, fat could afford to come up a little, but isn't too bad.

You might consider moving your "mince with rice" to right after you train instead of later in the day. What's your lifting split look like?
