Getting Lean for Summer?

Alright everyone, this is my first ever post on here, but have been reading for a few months to gain advice. Thought I'd post up my diet for trying to cut down and welcome any opinions or criticism.

I'm a 20 year old male; 6'1, 176 pounds. Not sure on body fat but would like to cut down and try to maintain muscle. I have booked a holiday for 16 weeks time so I'm using that as my incentive!

I'm a student so unfortunately meal times can vary dependant on timetable, however I do try to space meals out every 2 1/2 - 3 hours.

Meal one - 80g Oats mixed with skimmed milk, 1 scoop whey and 1 spoon flaxseed

Meal two - 1 slice wholemeal bread, 2 poached eggs, banana

Meal three - Tine of Tuna (mayo) / Salmon/ Mackerel on 1 slice wholemeal bread, 2 oat cakes, apple

Meal four - 200ml skimmed milk, 1 slice wholemeal bread with peanut butter

Meal five - 150g chicken with plenty of veg or lean steak/ turkey mince chilli

Meal six - 1 scoop whey mixed with skimmed milk & 25g L-Glutamine, 2 omega 3 caps, ZMA

I usually train between meals one - three and my PWO shake is - 2 scoops whey, 25g L-glutamine, 2 scoops instant oats with water

Been training on and off for a few years however have recently (4 months) started to take much more seriously and do my research. I currently train 3 days a week on a PPL split, just started putting in HIIT at the end of each session and play football regularly for other cardio

Any suggestions or opinions will be much appreciated - I'm still quite a beginner on the diet side  :)

    Looks ok.  The key will be cardio exercise.
    Vary food choices too.  See how you get on and adjust according to results
