I could help, but I would like more info.. Do you consider your self Meso,Endo, or Ecto? Also could you maybe break down how much of each item you are taking in? If you could break into fats/CHO/pro that would be great!

What do you think of my work out routine? Is there something else you would recomend? I could go to the Gym up to 5 times a week.

training wise for a cut. i usually do 3 times in the gym. cardio 2-3 times a week. Stair master, running outside. all the good stuff. i will typically either run a 5x5 workotu with it for 15-20 rep sets.

To add on to workout, you can swap your fasted morning cardio for HIIT, and possibly add 30 mins of low-intensity after your workout.
For Sat and Sun, adding just 30 or 40 mins of low intensity cardio would help a little bit, but I think it would just be personal preference. You could also just add HIIT on Sat or Sun morning.
You could do fasted HIIT, but you would need BCAAs, and I'm not sure what else, or if that would be it, I guess just wait for someone with a lil more knowledge on cardio to fix it up

Pre workout meal, I'm guessing that's the chicken and broccoli, I would add in some other form of carb, maybe brown rice there instead of the broccoli.
As for cardio, as long as you don't have knee problems I would suggest HIIT on non-training days. I don't know why people do fasted cardio, I especially wouldn't do fasted HIIT ever. I'm a big advocate of HIIT for a few reasons.
Increased glycogen efficiency
Positive hormonal increases
Increased metabolism due to EPOC
