Diet help/advice please :D

Im currently 15 1/2 stone at around 18-20% bf.
 
Obviously i am looking to drop my bodyfat significantly and keep as much muscle as possible. The diet that  have just started to use was recomended to me by a freind. I just need all your help and advice to fine tune it for me to see maximum fat loss and minimum muscle loss or maybe even muscle gain :D. Wanting to do this ready for the summer. So in this plan ive cut out virtually all my carbs after 4ish (after my work out).
 
So heres my diet plan:
 
Breakfast 9am:
6 weetabix or large bowl or porridge and a pint of water
 
Snack 11am:
Protien Shake with milk
Banana
 
Lunch 1pm:
Tin of tuna with brown rice
2 Bananas
Pint of water and glass of milk
Maybe some cottage cheese if i can handle it lol
 
Gym (2-3pm)
 
Post work out 4pm:
Protein shake with milk
Cashew nuts
 
Dinner 6:30pm:
Good lean bit of meat/chickien or fish
Brocolli/carrots/peas
no carbs what so ever.
Pint of water.
 
Snack:
Cashew nuts
Peanut butter
Cottage Cheese
Glass of water and maybe milk
 
So my questions are:
Is this good for optimising fat loss while minimising muscle loss?
Is this a good recommended diet that people would use or are there better ways of going about this?
last but not least.... WILL IT WORK??
 
Thanks :)

    Needs protein.

    Sounds a little like overkill, milk and bananas all fairly hi-carb and insulinogenic and not particularly 'useful' carbs.

    Post work out 4pm:
    Protein shake with milk
    Cashew nuts

    Avoid fats (nuts) post workout.  Personally I'd favour protein powder in water over milk here but neither is right/wrong.

    jjay
    Snack:
    Cashew nuts
    Peanut butter
    Cottage Cheese
    Glass of water and maybe milk

    How much of each?  Sounds a lot again!
     
    Eat loads of veg and include a source of omega 3.

    Maybe, no way is perfect for everyone.

    Maybe, have to see how you get on!  Ask yourself this question in 4 weeks of following it.

    Unaffiliated.

    So i should add in a scoop of whey into my porridge? or what else could i have to increase protein with breakfast?

    What would you suggest as more 'useful' carbs?
    I also forgot to mention i am type 1 Diabetic so im not sure if 'insulinogenic' applies to me or not?

    Ok no nuts after gym :) just protein shake, probably with water but occasionally i might use milk.

    jjay
    Snack:
    Cashew nuts
    Peanut butter
    Cottage Cheese
    Glass of water and maybe milk

    Eat loads of veg and include a source of omega 3.
     
    50-100g of cashews
    60g cottage cheese
    Few mouth fulls of peanutbutter
     
    Not usually all in one snack, depends how hungry i am. I eat a huge amount of veg with dinner so dont really have as a snack and how would i get a good source of omega 3 through a snack?

    jjay
    So my questions are:
    Is this good for optimising fat loss while minimising muscle loss?

    Maybe.
     
     
    Is this a maybe as in theoretically it should work on paper but its down to me or a maybe as in its not the best?

    I understand this :)
