    Try slapping on 20-30 mins low-mid intensity cardio on the end of each workout.

    Also, try eat a lot of vegtables for your carbs. Peas, red bell peppers and carrots are all good aswell. And make sure your at a slight calory deficite.

    yea, the OP doesn't really tell us much about his diet. I actually can't figure out what you meant by writing those foods like that. is that your rotation of foods that you eat everyday? how much of what food's do you eat?

    weigh yourself everyday and adjust your calories so that you lose 2lbs a week. Eat the same thing everyday so that you can learn what works and what doesn't and schedule one cheat meal per week to keep you psychologically stable and refill your glycogen stores. That works fairly well for me, but I do lose some muscle, it's almost unavoidable.
