my stats:
5' 7"
175 lbs
wanna get to about 150-155lbs.
im not too weak but not too strong, i do have belly fat which i need to lose.

i recently started to cut weight by cutting down my calories and lifting more. my daily caloric intake is about 1800-2000. i have cut out all sugary drinks, ice cream, candy etc. i eat more protein now and a lot of veggies and fruits.

my daily foods:

sandwhich with roast beef and a little cheese
a few apples
some bananas
salads with low fat dressing
at night some brown rice and salmon/chicken/steak (all lean)
also for breakfast some dannon light and fit yogurts with only 60 calories
im also gonna start taking nitrean soon enough

i lift 3-4 times a week. i do things like squats, bench, incline bench, curls, power cleans, deadlift, abs, back, rows etc.

will this program help me cut fat? i figure i'm cutting some calories and lifting so i shouldnt lose too much muscle and i should cut the fat off of me.

sounds like protein and fats are too low and carbs too high if you want to achieve that kind of fat loss at your starting weight.

Aim for 1g/lbm of protein and 0.5g/lbm of fat.

Find a set routine.
Know what you put in your mouth.
accept the fact that you will lose muscle at the same time as fat.
