I think you should readt the cutting sticky. There's a lot of room for improvement.
Milk? WHy not drink coke?

Find another approach before you begin.
Bad_Man's suggestion about the cutting thread is a good one.

What kind of shakes are those? I'm getting around 200 grams of protien - not incuding your shakes. I really doubt that diet equals 400+grams of protien and 3900-4000 calories.

Looks more like a bulking diet, than a cutting diet.

The biggest issue I see in the diet is the number of calories consumed and the choice of white rice in meal two. I dont see a PWO shake or PPWO meal which is something I would alter. I could live with the milk in meal one given the amount of fiber and protein consumed in conjunction. That should limit the GI response. With that said about meal #1, I dont see much reason for the 2 C milk in meal #5. If you want a dairy product for calcium needs why not go with cheese in your eggs instead?
I would go with something similar to this:
Meal #1 P/C (oats)
Meal #2 P/F
Meal #3 P/F
Meal #4 P/C (PWO) [post workout shake]
Meal #5 P/C (PPWO)
Meal # 6 P/F

yeah fatfreecottage cheese shud always replace milk if your searching for long lasting amino's / casein.

How many carbs are in those shakes? Sounds like a lot. Anything that says gainer probably isn't optimal for fat loss.

justin truthfully, you know what your doing. think your 18 years old, and your body fat is 8 percent. and you drink milk all the time and you eat hot pockets, you never have had a diet and your bf is low, and ive never seen you do cardio EVER lol, come on man, just do what you want. at 18 years old and weighing in a 180 with 8 percent body fat and benching 405, i think you know what your body needs. just eat like you have, just add cardio to your workouts and you will lean up a little more!
