Cutting Diet (will i lose size?)

At the moment I am 6ft 1 and 194lbs. I am approx 15% bf. I have been training for just over 1 year so im moderately experienced i guess. I would like to cut for at least the next 6 weeks so I am 11-12 ish when i bulk early september. I lift 3 days a week monday, wednesday, friday and do cardio 3 days a week with a 25min 5 a side football match each week. This is my cutting diet - are there any problems:

8:00 wake
8:30 one scoop whey in water with 5g l-glutamine + 1 multivitamin tablet
8:45 100g museli/oats with 200ml skimmed milk
11:00 10 egg whites + 2 yolks and handful of brazil nuts
1:00 can of tuna and 100g brown rice with veg
2:30 weights
3:30 apple + orange + 1 scoop whey in water
4:00 150g chicken with 100g brown rice and veg
6:00 1 wholemeal pitta with one can of tuna, salad and 10ml olive oil
8:30 oily salmon and veg OR 150g chicken with veg and olive oil
10:30 one scoop whey in water and 10ml flaxseed oil + 5g l-glutamine
11:00 100g of cottage cheese

approx 300g protein, 260g carbs, 60-65g fat approx 2600 - 2700 calories

i drink at least 3 litres of water but usually 4....................on cardio days i have the whey in water and l-glutamine 15 mins before and do steady state cardio for 45 mins at 65% of max heart rate. Football is almost HIIT for 25 mins on a friday evening.

I will do this for the next 6 weeks to see if i can lower my body fat by at least 3-4% while keeping almost all the muscle gains i have made.......

achievable?
any advice would be much appreciated.
thanks guys,

    You could keep this in the same thread as the one directly above this one.

    Do the cardio on a morning at the low intensity but on empty, i.e. no whey before hand.

    8.45am meal is heavy on carbs, not a lot of protien.

    Lose the apple and orange PWO and just go with the whey in water but have more protein, i.e. 2 scoops.

    4.00 meal is ok.

    Lose the pitta from 6pm meal, go with healthy fats and proteins here and include fibrous carbs (veg).

    No need to eat at 10.30pm and then again at 11.00pm - lose the whey, up the cottage cheese intake instead in that meal and keep the flax oil.

    ok sorry i posted twice. Its just I have asked a question when i was bulking and posted my diet below it after a reply and got no further response.

    Anyway thanks for the tips,

    But i know how important fruit is and when on a cut i have heard try to use fruit around training......

    Also wouldn't no whey b4 cardio be very catabolic............with no carbs b4 and just whey in water isn't the body tapping into fat for fuel b4 and the whey would protect muscle breakdown........?

    At that low intensity, not really, especially if the rest of the diet is nailed on.

    Fruit after working out isnt the best, your body wants glucose not fructose.
