Thats some good work, what are your maintenance calories? what are your stats?

Maintenance is ~2000 calories. I'm 5'6, 138, and ~24% bodyfat (if that can be relied on).

Ok, I would up the fats (personally) up around ~70g. If you feel that you need those extra carbs then go ahead. I assume your cutting, how long have you been doing this diet?

Just started it today. That's why I'm not totally sure about it. It's a carb cycle so my fats will be about 80g tomorrrow. I have to break my weight watchers' mentality that fat is bad because I am having a hard time figuring out where to get it from.

The carbs will get structured more around my workout next time. I didn't realize that I had so many to use and didn't plan it all that well.

No, that meal plan is pretty good. FAT isn't the enemy its made out to be. Fat doesnt make you gain weight, excess calories do. Places to get fat are: olive oil, almonds (any nuts), avocado, the list really could go on.
