cutting/weight loss - diet comments please
I'm starting an 8 week cut/weight loss program. I'm 6' and I weigh 192 pounds and have a bf % of 15 to 16. I have approx 30 Ib of fat and 162 Ib of lean body mass.
My goal is to lose 10 or 11 pounds of fat and retain the limited muscle mass I already have (as you can tell from my stats I'm not Mr Olympian or Mr Skinny). After I've lost the fat I plan to bulk up big time with lean gains with the help of some sust and deca. My fat is all centred around my stomach and love handles so I just can't face the prospect of bulking first and risking putting on more fat. I weight train 3 or 4 times a week and do cardio a further 4 times for approx 40 mins each time.
I've worked out a diet that is relatively equal on carbs and protein and I'd appreciate any comments. Some will inevitably say it's light on protein but my protein requirements aren't the same as a 6" person carrying 200 Ib of lean muscle mass and who is bulking. I fear that increased protein intake will just result in further fat being stored. If the consensus is that I need to drop carbs and increase protein then meal suggestions as to how I can achieve it would be greatly appreciated.

The total diet (bearing in mind I'm trying to cut/lose weight is approx 2200 calories, 220g of carbs, 53g of fat and 210g of protein. Ideally I'd like to add some fruit but where can I lose protein or complex carbs?
All feedback is appreciated.
