I am 28, 6'1, 205#, 22% BF - today's diet is 2477kcal with 273.2g protein (44%), 220.8g carbs (36%), and 55.7g fat (20%). I think that my calories are still too high and I'm betting that I should increase my protein to 50% and my fat to at least 25%. Any suggestions???

M1 - 100% Whey in water - 21p/3c/2f = 114kcal
Raisin Bran - 5/45/1.5 = 213.5
Skim Milk - 16/24/0 = 160

M2 (Pre-Workout) - Oatmeal - 3/26/1.5 = 129.5
Tuna - 37.5/0/2.5 = 172.5
Relish - 0/4/0 = 16
Mayo - 0/1/5 = 49
Skim Milk - 8/12/0 = 80
Olive Oil - 0/0/14 = 126

M3 (Post-Workout) - 100% Whey in water - 42/6/4 = 228
Skim Milk - 8/12/0 = 80
Pineapple - 0/20/0 = 80
Banana - 1.4/32/0.7 = 139.9

M4 - Tuna - 37.5/0/2.5 = 172.5
Relish - 0/4/0 = 16
Mayo - 0/1/5 = 49

M5 - Potato Bread - 4/14/1.5 = 85.5
Meunster Cheese - 6.6/0.3/3.5 = 59.1
Health Choice Ham - 27.5/1.5/7 = 179
Skim Milk - 8/12/0 = 80

M6 = Chicken Breast - 26.7/0/3 = 133.8
100% Whey in water - 21/3/2 = 114

***I think that I need to reduce my calories further for a cutting diet - maybe something more like 2200kcal as opposed to the above 2477kcal - true?? How far should I go and what should I take out, move, substitute? Thanks.

The only problem I see in my quick go-over of your diet is that raisin bran. I like raisin bran, but only pre-workout, since it has a lot of sugar and simple carbs. If this is a serious cutting diet, I'd switch that to oatmeal prepared with skim milk. 47 carbs of oatmeal is a lot more than 47 carbs of raisin bran, too.

Thanks for the suggestion on the Raisin Bran. I think that I will do the oatmeal thing instead tomorrow morning.

I think you should lower charboidrate and raise the amount of unsaturated fat.
And beofre the workout you should eat some low GI source of carbohidrates as legumes,fruits except bananas etc...as that kind of carbohidrates do not raise so much the level of insulin on your blood. If the level of insulin do not raise so much you'll have a better glicemy so that you can do better at the workout.
You must have high GI carbohidrate in the post workout to fill the glicogen exhausted because of the training.
