Your cardio situation is derailing you from your goals...No idea what and when you eat...
Read the cutting sticky at the top fo the Diet forum page...

Post your diet up so we can have a look
BTW there is no way you are 20% bodyfat......... I'd say 14-15%. You'll look a lot better cut up though at your size. good luck

my daily meals vary,but i do eat 5-6 times a day,every 3 hours, getting about 30 grams of protien and about the same for carbs with each meal.
i stay away from sugars and salty foods.
my protien sources are:chicken breasts,steak,tuna,shrimp,cottage cheese,eggs.
my carb sources are:rice,pasta,bread,veggies and fruit.

I would say more protein. 30g six times a day is only 180g. I would bump it to 50g a meal.

I agree with more protein, from what I understand it helps to build lean mass, not bulk up. But I could be wrong!

You will still need 1.5-2g of protein regardless!
Also you desperately need to read the cutting sticky.
Drop the shrimp (who uses shrimp as a source of protein?) and add Salmon, drop the pasta, bread, and limit your fruits or take them out all together. Make sure the cottage cheese is "No Fat".
You need to up your cardio to 45-1hr 5-7 days a week (or what is realistic)and remember the key is to stay within your target HR or you will be burning those hard earned muscles. Also think about adding Glutamine to your supplement list if you have'nt already as it aides in preventing Catabolism.
And of course make sure to take in EFA's (Flax, Olive Oil, Natty PB, Almonds).
Post a sample diet and we can rip it apart. It should not take you long to achieve your goal as said above, your BF% looks to be around 15%-18%.
