    2 eggs
    2 tbsp honey

    Meal 2
    chicken broth
    1 chicken breast
    1\2 large potato
    1\2 carrot
    1\2 leek

    Meal 3
    mixed nuts snack 1\2 cup
    cashews, pistachios, peanuts, walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts

    Meal 4

    1 liter 1% milk
    2 tbsp 100% cocoa

    Why are you consuming so many meals when your total caloric intake is so extremely low?

    I presume since you're 5'7" tall, weigh 145 pounds and are cutting that you're female. Is this presumption correct?

    What's your estimated TDEE?

    Are you lifting? If so, you might want to increase protein intake to 1 gram per pound of bodyweight.

    I read that spreading meals increases metabolism and reduces food craving.

    My TDEE is 2500 calories. I am male, 5 foot 7 and a half, body fat percentage around 12. I lift for size 3 times per week, 45 mins HIIT on eliptical per week, also around 6 hours of badminton per week.

    Aiming for fight club physique, big arms \ shoulders, medium (not too big) chest, really tight abs, triangular upper body shape etc. Maybe slightly higher bfp, like 8 to 10...

    Its hard to say if the diet is right for you because if you are lifting then you would probably be needing more protein and less carbs, although if you do a lot of cardio then you need more carbs then protein, you also have only two real meals (breakfast and lunch).

    Meal frequency does not have a net impact on metabolism and higher meal frequent is often associated with increased hunger, not decreased hunger.

    Given that you weigh just 145 pounds, it sounds like you're in desperate need of a bulk and that cutting would be a disaster.

    Agreed. When I got under 150, I realized that there was no more reason for me to cut and bulking was the way to go. Of course, my goal was not to look like a Kenyan runner! No clue what you the OP's goals are!

    When I'm really slim and not lifting I weigh around 60 kilos \ 132 pounds. I currently weigh 66 kilos \ 145 pounds, so I'm carrying around 4 kilos \ 9 pounds of new muscle and 2 kilos \ 4.4 pounds of extra fat. My plan is to cut until that new muscle is clearly defined \ abs showing, then do a very slow super clean bulk, max 500 calories above maintenance, so that staying defined and cut I can slowly build muscle. Just don't like fat!

    Goal is fight club physique, big arms and shoulders, medium (not too big) chest, tight abs, triangular upper body. Medium \ tight lower body, not too big, not skinny though!

    Oh, so now you don't want a "fight club physique"?

    You really should just bulk now and cut later. Your height/weight are indicative of someone who would be classified as a beginner in terms of training and skeletal muscle mass. Therefore, you could gain 10-12lbs of muscle in the next 5-6 months and then cut if you like your gains. There are a lot of people who are hesitant to go into a full bulk for fear of gaining fat. All I can say is...pull the trigger, you'll get bigger/stronger and probably look better anyway because of the muscle gains...then you can cut and it will all be worth it.

    That's actually rather easy to accomplish if you're willing to under eat for a period of time and if you do a little bit of bodyweight exercise.

    Great! That's the look I want for now, so cutting is the right move it would seem! I will continue with the lifting of course..day 1 triceps and chest, day 2 biceps and back, day 3 shoulders and lower body, plus lots of cardio! So is the diet ok for this plan and the look I want? Maybe just a bit more protein from the suggestions so far, like some whey powder added to the chocolate shake perhaps? Other than that diet is OK?
