Newbie diet in NEED of critique
I posted this average daily meal plan in the "What did you eat yesterday" thread, but I figured I would receive more critiques if I posted it seperate. This is my first big try at Lifting, dieting, and doin cardio to burn fat. Here is a typical day's food intake for me, a lot of the food is pretty simple and plain since i spend hours at school or in the library. Any advice would be greatly appreciated:
M1: 2 Scoops of protein powder in water. 5 eggs (3 of them just whites)
M2: 1/2 lb. of sliced deli turkey
M3: two small cans of light canned tuna mixed with fat free mayo and chopped onions and celery
M4: 1lb of lean ground venison ( our family of 4 eats about 5-6 deer a year, so venison is the most plentiful meat in the house for me )
M5: cup of juice, banana, 2 scoops of protein powder in water
workout consists of 5 days of lifting, 6 days of cardio (30min a day, 15 of those minutes at a heart rate of around 160 )
I am 6'2.5 already dropped from 220lbs to 210lbs in 6.5 weeks of eating typical meals like this
I really dont have a cheat meal per say, but i instead tend to have a couple drinks on fridays at my typical college parties, but ive been stickin to about 5 drinks a weekend of just diet soda mixed with carb-free alcohol
I have to get a bf test done, but from mirror results, i think i only have about 10lbs of fat i want to lose before I would explore a mass gaining cycle and I bet these last 10lbs will be the hardest so ANY criticism on diet would be great, thanks

for p.w. from weight training- some hi GI carbs to spike insulin along with your protein.
for p.w. after cardio- no carbs.
efa- essential fatty acids such omega-3 and omega-6's. good kind is flax seed oil.

post workout you want to have fast-absorbing carbs, like daman said..but I wouldn't use the juice and banana as you have been. Your muscle glycogen is depleted after a workout, but the sugars in fruits replenish liver glycogen only. Dextrose is the best option, otherwise any carb source with little or no fat, little or no fiber and little or no added sugar (think cornflakes, white bread, white rice).
