And that's about it. Sorry these posts were so long, but I just want to make sure I'm doing ok and see if there is anything I could do better or change days on things etc. Also is it ok that I do 20 min of cardio first thing in the morning before eating or drinking? I heard that is a good way to burn fat, but I don't want to burn up muscle. Thanks everyone for your patience and help.
Right now I'm at around 10% body fat and I'd like to get to about 5%. I'm 6ft tall, I weigh 205 right now and I'd like to weight around 230 or so. I do cardio in the morning on an empty stomach (no water and no food) for 20 minutes on an eliptical. I do weights in the afternoon. Just ask if you have any more questions. Thanks
I hope Chappy chimes in here, as he's the master of competition leanness preparation. Generally your diet is what you need to change when cutting. Post your current diet as precisely as you can and we'll see what needs to be changed.
Are you trying to lean out for an event? Or do you plan to try to maintain that level of bodyfat? 10% is very lean already.

Well I'm 18 years old right now, and I'm about to go into Navy ROTC at Purdue. After College I want to be a fighter pilot, but if that doesn't work out I'm thinking very seriously of Navy SEALs. So for that I want to be in top physical condition. This may sound weird, but I believe if I have a muscular body (a six pack and all that jazz) I will recieve more respect, and an officer candidate for SEALs needs the respect of his comrads. I respect people with great bodies because I know what they go through to get them. So I hope to get that kind of respect from others.
My diet is this:
6:45AM protein shake and cereal
9AM Orange or Apple
11:30 AM Salad with chicken, turkey, or ham very little dressing on the side, skim milk and maybe an apple or orange
2pm Protein shake
6pm whatever the family is having
