I am 6ft ish, 224lbs and trying to cut, my diet is pretty clean now I must say.

Oh and is it ok to have a packets of crisps of a candy bar (not everyday say every two or three days) if it fits in your carb/fat/protein and calories for that day?

Not the main question, that is,

I have worked out that a cutting level of calories for myself is around 2750 (ish) and I can happily live on that, maintainence is about 3700. The following are only rough figures but fairly accurate! I have the exact figurres written down at home.

daily MAXIMUMS

50% Carbs - 1200 calories - 300g Carbs (complex, clean, wholemeal)
30% Protein - 800 calories - 200 g Protein
20% Fat - 700 calories - 75g Fat (fish oil, olive oil, milk, flaxeed)

40 40 20 meant 300g protein daily which I think Id struggle with although I never intend to go above 300 g carbs or below 200 g protein sometimes it may be 240 and then be 260g carbs, i.e. these are my daily maximums, use fitday for rough guide.

Any cheats would be included in my carb/protein/calories for the day, to allow some flexibility on those days where (you know when) your starving at 10 pm and just crave oatmeal!

I have added cardio 40 mins x 3 and HIIT x 2 per week - should I do more?
Weight Training x 4 per week.

Diet looks something like: fat/carb/protein, including a cheat candy bar and a slice of white bread after weight training.

At a glance it doesn't look bad and you'll probably lose weight, but you'll never get the best results when your diet includes Twix or "crisps".
