I am no expert or guru but I can tell you what I think..No I don't think you are consuming too much fruit, fruit is an invaluable source of low GI carbs (for the most part) and nutrients, good stuff whether bulking or cutting. Did you mean cut carbs completely PWO, because I don't think that will help you at all, you still need those carbs as a re-feed. I have never really gotten into the during shake with BCAA's but I know alot of the more seasoned guys around here swear by that so that looks good. And unfortunately the first place you put it on is the last place it will leave, you are just gonna have to be patient to see that fat dissipate. Good luck on your cut, and remember I am definitely not an expert.
