Is this a good cutting diet?
6'0 229 lb
Total calories 2290
Protein 300 grams= 1200 cal
Carbs 104 grams= 416 cal
Fat 75 grams= 675 cal
Comes out to 52.4% Protein, 18.2% Carbs, 29.5% Fat
I lift Monday, Wednesday and Friday
Do HIIT Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday
Want to get down to around 200 by June 1st, any suggestions?
June 1st is still a bit away. I dont see why you can reach your goal

make sure ya take in 10-15g of glutamine to hold onto ur muscle so you dont burn it away while ur doing ur HIIT... on saturdays and sundays... add about 150g of low glycemic carbs.. like oatmeal and brown rice and sweet potatoes...
if you keep ur carbs that low for too long it will actually hinder your results and your body will think ur starving it without the carbs so you will burn muscle instead of fat... take the glutamine to hold onto the muscle and up the carbs on the weekends to give you some energy for the week and to change things up a bit..
you dont need the HIIT.. i would go with low intensity twice a week and HIIT once a week...BEFORE breakfast.. because thats when you burn the most fat seeing how you dont have any nutrients in you cuz you just digested everything you'll be running on empty...
hope that helps

I would have to disagree with little jake about doing cardio before breakfast unless your goal is to burn the most amount of muscle possible while doing it.
