There are people here that know a lot more about nutrition than I do, but I do know everybody's calorie needs are different, depending on how much LBM you currently have. So, first start off by telling us your weight, body fat %, etc. You should take at least 1g of protein per pound of LBM and at least .5g of fat per pound. The rest of the calories can be from whatever you feel comfortable with. Just make sure you meet the minimums for fat and protein. It's also important to get those calories from clean food sources.

How to do cardio if you MUST! (http://www.wannabebig.com/article.php?articleid=292) might be of interest to you. I'm not saying your cardio plans are not ideal, I just think it will help you out. ;)
