I need a good cutting diet.

My current diet, i've been on for a while now, but i'm really sick of it, and i don't think it's all that great as it leaves me without energy alot of the time. On the weekend the times i can eat always change as i only get my breaks when i'm told. Is there a good cutting diet, that i wouldn't have to keep perfect on the weekend?

Thanks.

    9am 30-45 Minutes cardio
    Low intensity here, fast walking, stationary bike, Cross trainer, etc...

    9:30-45am Whey in water
    Keep the whey in water, but have some carbs here, oats, weetabix, etc...

    10am Bannana
    Could include this with the first meal

    12pm Beans & Tuna
    I would include healthy fats here, lose the beans make this meal protein and fat, with fibrous carbs i.e. vegetables

    2pm Whey in water
    Lose the whey here, if you want liquid calories then buy a casein blend and add small portion of carbs here or more healthy fats

    3pm Plum & Pear
    Could have these with the above meal.

    4pm Wholewheat pasta & Chicken
    What amounts of food here? ? ? The choices are fine by the way.

    5:30pm Weight Training

    6:30pm Whey in water
    Fine

    7:30 4 bits of Bacon
    Lose the bacon, go with lean source of protein i.e. chicken, turkey, lean steak, lean mince, etc... and get some carbs with this meal, pasta, rice, etc... this will form your PPWO (Post post workout meal)

    9:30 Bran flakes w/Skimmed milk.
    Not the best choice on a cut, especially before bed, lose the bran flakes, lose the skimmed milk, protein and again healthy fats here before you go to bed would be a good start.

    For the morning cardio i do a intense workout, i'm training for MMA as i'm trying to become a pro fighter so i need to have good cardio. Should i do cardio twice a day, low intensity in the morning and later in the day a more intense workout.

    For the 7:30pm meal i cook all my meats on a george forman grill so my bacon is always low fat, or does this more make a difference.

    Which foods have healthy fats in them for my 12pm food and 9:30pm food as i don't really know.

    Thanks.

    I would try doing some High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) in the morning, and if you feel the need, do a lighter cardio session later in the day. Remeber to lose weight you must create a calorie defecit(you must eat less calories than your body needs). Cut out calories from carbs, and up the healthy fats and keep protein intake high.

    Taste doesn't build muscle.

    He doesn't want to be going too low on carbs if he is doing HIIT, then weights, then possibly more cardio.

    More protein needed in 9am meal.

    10am meal is incomplete, add carbs here or add the banana from 11am and more carbs.

    2pm could add to 12pm meal.

    Move the 12pm meal to 1pm.

    You need more Omega 3's, replace the peanuts before bed with oily fish, flax oil, flax seed.

    Not enough protein PWO.
