need some dieting advice
ok guys heres all my information
im 5'10 170lbs with about 10-11% body fat
im just trying to get by bf down to around 7 to 8% in the next 4 wks. and more importantly i really want to burn the extra flab off my gut and lower back.
about 8months ago i knew nothing about how dieting can change the compostion of ones body so any help, advice is greatly appreiciated.
heres my workouts:
Day 1. superset chest and back 4 exercises each about 10 - 15 reps with 30 sec to 1min rest in between sets. then 3 exercises of bis 10-12 reps followed by either 25 min to 30 min cardio with 5 min warmup then i do moderate to full intensity followed by 5 min cool down.
Day 2. superset legs and shoulders 4 exercises each about 10 -15 reps w/ 30 sec to 1min rest in between sets. then 3 exercises of tris 10 - 12 reps followed by the same type of cardio as in day 1
Day 3. 45 min cardio on an empty stomach, with interval training from hi to low to moderate intensity then abs.
Day 4. repeat as day 1
Day 5. repeat as day 2
Day 6 and 7 rest.
on days 1,2,4,5 i usually stay in my target heart rate when supersetting exept when doing bis or tris and i burn an extra 300-350 cal on cardio so im thinking im burning 700 to 800 cal in the 1hr 45 mins i spend at the gym.
day 3 (my cardio day) i burn 500 to 600 cal.
as far as my dieting goes i try to eat 2 grams of protein per body weight my carbs come from only complex carbohydrates. i eat either 6 to 8 meals a day totaling 2200-2400 cal. and i try to cycle my carbs by eating anywhere from 150 - 250 grams of carbs a day.
if u guys really need me too ill post exactly what it is i eat every day. but as of now i feel as if the only thing holding me back right is my diet and im just wonderin if should try cutting back on my carbs like less then 100 grams a day to shed the last of my back fat and gut cause im really stumped right now and need advice.
here some pics lemme know what u think

is that acne on your chest, or bad razor bumps? also, try cocoa butter to lighten those stretch near your pits.

If you really want to burn the fat, do more cardio. Try 5, 6, or 7 times a week. Forget the interval training. Keep your heart rate between 65% and 75% of max. This is the equivelant of fast walking for most people. This is when lipolysis occurs. Anything more intense will cause your body to seek other sources of fuel than bodyfat.

It really would help for you to post exactly what you eat every day.

meal 3: 7oz sauteed salmon with veggies such as spinch or brocc with a cup of brown rice. around 450-500cal 37p/ (carbs not too sure b/c i dont know how much carbs/calories are in cup of veggies)
meal 4: all white meat 97% fat free turkey burger on a bed of spinch or lettuce with ketchup or horse radish sauce (sometimes ill throw in a low carb whole wheat bread.)
meal 5: 2 chicken breasts (202g each) with a cup of veggies. 400cal 84p
meal 6: 2 scoops of isopure zero carb protein or some type of lean protein meal with out any type of carbs. 300cal 50p
as for supplements i take 3000mg of CLA a day and around 300 to 600 mgs of ala a day
plz bear with a little guys im still have lots and lots to learning about dieting and i really want to figure out how i can manipulate my carb intake alot better and figure out how much carbs/calories/protien im getting from eating a cup of veggies here and there.

Way too many carbs. Get rid of the bread - even low carb bread sux. Eat protein at EVERY meal. Eat either carbs or fat with every meal. Never eat both carbs and fat at the same meal.
This is a VERY brief summary of what's in the cutting sticky. Read the sticky. Know the sticky. Live the sticky.
Redo your diet and post it again.

its hard to tell an exact amount of grams as everyone varies in their genetic makeup. Just make it a % of an eating plan and calculate grams from there.
