tell me what you think about my diet
4 eggs 1 whole 3 whites, 1/2 cup oats, protein shake
can of tuna, 1/2 cup oats
Chicken breast, cottage cheese(sometimes)
I'm trying to cut and I'm wondering since I'm getting protein from my eggs if I should void my breakfast protein shake and double up on my PWO shake. I'm drinking very little beer maybe 3 or 4 a week and my cardio is running 30 to 45 minutes 5 to 6 times a week (also because I'm wanting to run 5 and 10 ks). I drink about a gallon or so of water a day, and protein is the only supplement I eat. I do have more then one cheat meal a week maybe 2 or 3 but it isn't pizza but more like Buffalo Wild Wings (like last night for instance) or a steak dinner, which I find better then going to the bars any time and ruining my anabolic state with booze. Any advice from you vets would be muchly appreciated. Lastly this diet mirrors my lifting and non-lifting days. Thanks guys.

First off, I see very little fat in the diet. It's important to get at least 15 if not 20% of your daily caloric intake from healthy fats.
Secondly, I would recommend cutting out all the beer. Also, more than one cheat meal a week might not be a good idea.
I suggest trying not to gulp so many protein shakes. Instead, get your protein from whole foods. If you're planning on having carbs in your last two meals, have them as some fibrous vegetables instead of starchy foods.
Another thing I noticed is the amount of food you're eating. It seems pretty small for someone your size. Despite the fact that you're cutting, too low a calorie intake will not benefit your metabolism, but slow it down. You could also look into carb cycling.
Just a couple suggestions.
