    Why those foods? I mean wouldn't cardio and evenly spaced out small meals speed up your metabolism. I don't think those specific foods will help your metabolism..

    Also option one is just a carb meal. So you will be eating just carbs inbetween a meal? Thats not a good idea.

    Also if you want to see better results you may want to do cardio in the morning on empty stomach to optimize fat loss and speed up the fat loss progress.

    Yeah I know cardio in the morning your rite,when I get my place I'LL train the way I want.A bit difficult rite now,that's why I'm looking for little ways to tweak my diet to maximise fat loss,but there's no sub for just old fashioned diet and cardio.

    Since you are not doing AM Cardio as of now, I have a few suggestions:

    1. Eat a majority of carbs at breakfast to jumpstart your metabolism...and make it medium to low GI carbs: Oats and some fruit will do. Also add some fast protein (whey) and slow protein (boiled aggs or omelet) to complete a Pro/Carb meal.

    2. For the consequetive meals, the carb in each Pro/Carb meal should eventually decline because A) you're nearing the time of day (early evening) when insulin is highest and B) the carbs that you need for workout have been supplied by the first few meals of the day (This is for cutting only, assuming you're not taking a fast high GI carb drink prior to training)

    3. Since your cardio is PWO, drink a fast acting whey shake 30 min beforetraining so you minimize catabolism during the cardio session.

    4. The second highest carb intake should come in the PWO meal in the form of dextrose/maltodextrin and half this carb in the PPWO meal in the form of rice/potato/yams

    A whole hour of cardio after lifting? Seems excessive to me, are you still gaining strength? I'd recommend doing 20 mins of HIIT after lifting, and instead of drinking a fast acting whey 30 mins before lifting, get yourself about 15-20 g of BCAA's right before heading into the gym. I think you'll see much less muscle catabolism with this approach.
