Default New Guy - Opinions Welcome

What' up everyone? I am new to the site, not "completely" new to fitness. I have been working out for about the last 6 months. I was really doing well with my nutrition too. I dropped from 230lbs down to 200lbs by eating right and using Hydroxycut hardcore with weight training.

I started to slip on my eating and am back up to 215lbs. I have done a little more homework and have begun my nutrition again. I am still working on it a little however.

My goals are as follows:
I would like to drop to 190lbs and cut up more in the midsection.
I am only ten lbs away from my bench goal of 250lbs (started off with and injured shoulder and struggled with 135lbs...sucks I know)
I can squat 425 at least once.
I can leg press 1g once.
I also want to get more definition in my chest.
I plan on adding cardio to my routine in the form of biking.
I don't want to be huge...not good for my line of work, nothing personal against anyone.

My diet consists of the following:

Breakfast 8am- egg, egg white, cup of oatmeal, banana, and cup of fat free milk.

PWO 1130am- 1 scoop of celltech, 1.5 scoops of whey isolate to make my shake, and an orange.

1200 pm- 4 oz boneless chicken breast

Lunch 3pm- Tuna or sliced turkey on whole grain wheat, Low sodium v-8 juice, and watermelon (filler).

Dinner 6pm- Salad, chicken breast, sugar free Jell-O, and an apple.

Late meal 9pm- peanut butter on whole grain, and grapes.

I know it's not the perfect meal. Infact, I was shooting for 2,000 cals and I am short like 300. Also the sodium is kind of high. But since I wear a bullet-proof vest at work I sweat a lot.

Workout as follows:
Mon-Chest and Triceps
Wed-Legs and Shoulders
Fri- Back and Biceps
I am also throwing in a 5 mile bike ride 2.5 hours before workouts and abs all three days but nothing extreme.

Sorry for the length and any suggestions are welcomed.

Glad to be part of the forum.

Welcome to the site, good luck with your goals.

If you want to trim up, I would suggest eating more. I just went through the same thing, I was way below maint cals for far too long and I stopped losing fat all together. I would look at revamping your diet.
I don't do this for my family, my friends, women, accolades, pride, or ego. I do it for me and no one else, its just part of who I am.

Welcome. It could use some improving, but you've got a better diet than a lot of the people I've talked to. What type of work do you do?
