Heres the diet im going to follow and excersices.
9am - Coffee followed by 1.5 miles run.
10am- Low Carb Protein Shake for Breakfast and Supps*
1pm - Can of Tuna and Coffee before Gym and HIIT's training
2-3.30pm- GYM - weights and HIIT's for 25 minutes.
4pm- Another can of Tuna
6.30pm-Dinner 1 piece of meat/fish (chicken,steak,salmon,prawns etc) and 2 peices of vegetables
8pm- snack- 1 fruit.
Im taking supplements along this diet - Fat Metabolizer pills, Whey protein, CLA and after ive lost a few pounds and get down to 190ish im going back on creatine.
Gym consisting of high rep low weight and low rep high weight to get max benefits.
Please post advice and tip as any help or critisism is appretiated.

A lot more veggies would actually benefit you and at 8pm instead of the fruit u might want some protien and fat instead. The other thing is to get some fish caps and take them cause theres not a lot of fat. Good luck!

Just a ?
Your HIIT isn't going to be all running or cardio is it? cause that seems like alot for every day. Whats your split look like??

Your calories are way to low, move the shake to later in the day, and add some fish oil.
Add more fibre veggies too. I dont even think you are at 1K cals, being that far into deficit and doing resistance and HIIT is not gonna work that well. IMO

I agree with the others in saying Up your calories a bit- I am doing drastic 3.5 day cut/depletion followed by a quick refeed and will forewarn you that your training intensity will diminish if you go too low on carbs- I would add in chicken and very lean turkey instead of doing can tuna- that stuff isn't good to eat in large amounts. Have brocolli and green beans with 6 meals a day - add in cumin, chili pepper for seasoning and like the others have mentioned- up to 6 fish caps daily (by the pure oils not cheapos) and maybe add in a lil flax with your protein shakes...just my 2 cents..Good Luck!
