If you assume you remain 15% bf at 210, that puts you at 31.5lbs fat.
If you want to get down to 10% fat, you'd have to drop 12.5lbs fat putting you at 197.5lbs with 19.5lbs fat. Chances are you'd lose some muscle too, so 15lbs is more reasonable, so 195lbs end weight.

If you're doing OTC fat burners, OxyElite is good for working out or doing cardio FASTED (i.e., no food before). It loses some effectiveness when dosed with food.
Some good ones are Forged Burner and Adderlin, you can get both with free shipping on www.********************** and use discount code "needto139" for 15% off.
A few folks have had great success with this combo, but it will only help if diet and training are really dialed in. It takes 6-12 months of concerted effort to figure these out, I'm just getting there 3 weeks out from a BB show.

If you're going to lose 12.5lbs, and want to preserve muscle, you should target 1-2lbs a week. Let's assume you're doing the necessary cardio and calorie restriction and go with 2lbs, that would be about 6 weeks, or 1.5 months.

I don't know how you're gaining at 2200 calories a day given your size and working out. Also, half your aclories/protein shouldn't come from shakes.
I think you need more protein in the AM too, whole food and not another shake. You'll learn very quickly on a good cut that whole food >>> shakes.
Try signing up at FitDay.com and craft a diet based on whole food with 1-2 shakes. You can track your macros and calories there rather than guessing.
Not trying to bash you at all bro. Diet and nutrition is THE KEY to bodybuilding, and most think they've got it figured out but it takes a LONG time trying a lot of things to find the right diet for your goals.
What are your cutting plans for diet, cardio, weights and supplements?

If you're 18, your hormones are prefect for adding muscle or getting lean. Take advantage of that by increasing calories to gain, and a modest cut to calories when you cut with added cardio. Target a 500cal deficit when you cut.
Google base metabolic rate, and calculate what your base rate is. Add in exercise and you've got your daily maintenance calories.
I'd cut down to 1 shake during the day (post workout). You can add oats to your shake, ~1 cup. It's best to grind them in a blender or magic bullet first. Oats make me grow like nothing else, but are great on a cut too!
Also, for breakfast eat 3 whole eggs and 3-4 whites. It's 6g protein for whole eggs, and 4g protein for whites. Try to get at bare minimum 20g protein from the eggs, preferably more. Buy eggs in bulk, they're awesome for gaining and cutting (less yolks in a cut, like 10 whites and 1 yolk). Hot sauce goes great with this, something like Frank's or Cholula.
Cardio, I'd start off with 20 minutes, two times a day. Once in the AM, once in the PM immediately after you're done lifting (save the shake for after cardio, the time delay is actually good). If weight isn't coming off the way you want, increase the time or frequency on cardio.
Supplements, really don't NEED anything if diet and exercise are done right. CLA never did anything for me, and I went through >1000 pills over a period of time. You do want to include fish oil though, and a multivitamin, and some protein. If you want to get exotic, you can get a fat burner like Forged Burner or Adderlin from www.********************** (coupon code "needto139" gets you 15% off), with free shipping. Another option is a nutrient partitioner like Need2Slin which you can get from the same place (basically an insulin mimetic that helps shuttle food to the muscles rather than fat). Also a BCAA product would be good, something like Xtend (helps preserve muscle in a caloric deficit). Those last few are optional, and depend on how much you want to spend.
If you've got any questions, just let me know.

I'd throw in some more eggs in the AM and PM. Hardboiled eggs travel easy too, and are a great snack if you're bulking.
