1. It would be difficult for anyone to tell you definitively how much cardio you can do whilst maintaining muscle. My bet would be to start doing a hit sprint program and go from there.
2. You are going to want to stagger your carb intake on a day to day basis-but those numbers really are contingent on other varibles. Never the less, add two more or at least one more carb meal to your post workout regimine. I.e Yams,brown rice with steak and or white fish preferbly.
3. Please take at least 6 fish caps a day-I personally don't like flax-but to each his own.
I also like surge and ice as a post workout concoction.
4. Go 4-6 weeks before you change anything drastically and check in for more input.
5. Keep a journal. And take a daily multi.
Sorry, I am not a guru but hopefully this is helpful.

I would suggest that you make sure to get in about 300g of protein, you look a little low. Next, add 75-90g complex carbs to postworkout meal number 2 (8-8:30) on workout days only. At least one gallon of water each day too.
As to workouts, I would suggest at least one more day of gym time, and no more than one hour for each workout. For cardio you look pretty good to start, as long as you are maintaining between 60-70% of your Maximum Heart Rate. Do not go higher while you are doing cardio on an empty stomach! You may have to bump up frequency or duration if fat loss slows or halts.

For the love of God, don't take the "HIIT" advice from the "banned member". Myself, Usual, Rambo, etc. have all explained in other threads why this is inferior for goals such as yours.

Thanks alot Swole, I will adjust as you stated and see how that works. I appreciate help from a guy as knowledgable as you. I've been lead down the wrong path too many times and it always seems to set me back.

One last thing Swole...
Would you think 50 grams dextrose for somebody my weight (210) with activities as listed would be sufficient for post workout meal? Also meal 6 you suggest lean protein and a starch - Would a starch such as brown rice or even oatmeal do here? Last but not least - You say R-ALA with Biotin with my post work-out meals. I assume the biotin is to keep the R-ALA from competing with my natural levels. Will Plain ALA give me the same desired effect? I have searched many threads and cannot get a straight answer on that one. Thanks in advance for all your help.

Rala is far superior to ala. You need biotin because the ala depletes your body of this B vitamin. I just ordered both from allsportsnutrition.com
