Need some guidance - please critique my leaning down plan - THANKYOU
 
Hi fellas,

Thanks for reading this and commenting; I appreciate your time. I am sorry for asking - but I really am in need of some guidance. (yes, I have read the forums, and done my research - I only eat "clean" foods)

I am 6ft 1, 180lbs (82.3kgs) and around 19-21% BF. I am 20 years old.

I have been on a quest over the last 6 months to gain strength and muscle mass. So now, I am trying to swing into the "cutting phase" to trim down for basketball; but not with the goal of being "cut". I am aiming to get back to my original 12-15% BF level.

Going slowly and taking 3-4 months to do this is my strategy.

I will describe my current plan:

Repeat…
Summary: Gym every 3rd day. Cardio on the days in between.

On Weight Training Days:
Breakfast: 350 calories
Weight training
PWO drink: 350 calories
Snack: 250 calories
Lunch: 450 calories
Snack: 200 calories
Dinner: 500 calories
Snack: 150 calories

On off Days: (lower carb intake on 2nd off day)
Breakfast: 450 calories
Snack: 300 calories/250 calories
Lunch: 450 calories
Snack: 250 calories/200 calories
Dinner: 500 calories
Snack: 150 calories

I consume at least 180g of Protein on training days, and 150g of Protein on “off days”.
I always have P/C/F with every meal - except:
Breakfast: Mostly C with some P
After-dinner snack: only P
Afternoon Snack: mostly P and F
PWO: only P and C.

I hope I have covered all the important things. Thankyou for taking the time to analyse this. I really appreciate you taking the time to help me. Thankyou.
So far, I have gained a little lean MM, and somehow decreased in BF. But overall weight stayed relatively the same.

Best regards,
