I agree you have a good workout schedule there. I would recommend a high protein diet as well. Once again eat lots of veggies and your lean meats. Cut the fat off your steaks and such. Protein always helps you lose weight. I had put on 40 pounds of fat and started working out with a high protein diet and using creatine and whey protein shakes and have cut a lot of the bad fat off my body and replaced it with muscle. That shounds about like what you're trying to do. Also, try to stay with your darker green veggies, such as broccoli, greens, and spinach just to name a few. Hope that works for you.

Your routine looks good to me. If you want to lose fat faster, try interval training instead of cardio.

I do a similar schedule to you and I am a thin guy trying to put on muscle. I do a little less interval training (1 - 1 1/2 hrs 2x per week) but that shouldn't matter so much. I went from 6' tall 160 lbs to 175 lbs in three months. I stayed pretty cut the whole time with body fat under 10% My diet was the key though. I am a paleolithic eater. I eat lots of meat, eggs, fish and nuts for protein and healthy fat. A also eat a lot of fruit and veggies. I don't do portions or calorie counting, I just eat when I'm hungry. My resistance training workouts are pretty intense so my body begs me for lots of protein. Stay away from grains, beans and potatoes. They will not help you lose weight or gain muscle. These are basically high calorie foods with minimal nutrients.

You can read up on paleolithic eating by searching paleolithic diet anywhere online.

Hope this helps
