No offense, but I don't know why your goal is to gain serious mass if you are at 30% bodyfat. Your figure would probably look much better (and even "bigger" muscle wise) if you went on a cut for a few months and shed some body fat. THEN tried to add good lean mass. I've always had better luck focusing on one goal at a time.

i think you're going to want to do a straight cut . recomping is a slow process.
here's why :
if you're at 25% BF at 220lbs, that means you have 55lbs of fat 165lbs of LBM. if you lose only fat, and no LBM, you'd have to be 198ish. assuming you aren't going too low on calories trying to hold onto muscle, MAYBE you'll lose 2lbs of fat a week.......thats 11weeks of cutting.
this is if you want to look alright at 15% BF. to add muscle WHILE losing fat, you can imagine how much longer than 11 weeks, it will take.
my math could be off though
For me, the action IS the juice.

First off I would lift before cardio, and try and keep your sessions short. If you really want to lose fat do cardio later on in the day.
Diet wise I'd add more veggies if possible. I think you should look into www.leangains.com and see if intermittent fasting is for you. I've always been more hungry when I eat every two hours or whatever as you are doing.
