The diet of the Plyo

One of my readers asked me about my diet. I thought I should write a little bit about both the cutting and the bulking phase. Basicly I diet down 12 weeks each spring, and I bulk up 20 weeks each fall. The rest of the year, I keep my weight leveled. During my cutting phase I remove one foodsource each week for 12 weeks. It goes like this:

Week 1 - Sugar
Week 2 - Wheat flour
Week 3 - Juice
Week 4 - Yoghurt
Week 5 - Fruits
Week 6 - Pepsi max
Week 7 - All flour except oatmeal
Week 8 - All dairy products except skimmed milk
Week 9 - Red vegetables
Week 10 - Skimmed milk
Week 11 - Oatmeal
Week 12 - Yellow vegetables

A typical day in the middle of my diet might look something like this (i'm sorry for the metric system)

07:00 - Proteinshake with 4 dl skimmed milk and 80 g whey + 1 espresso shot
08:00 - 60 grams of oatmeal and 2 dl skimmed milk (no milk in week 10, 11 and 12)
10:00 - 200 grams of vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower and celery) + 100 g skyr
13:00 - 200 grams of salad and 200 grams of chicken breasts + soysauce
16:00 - Proteinshake with 4 dl skimmed milk and 80 g whey + 1 espresso shot
19:00 - 200 grams of vegetables (wok), 20 g oil and 200 g beef + bbq sauce
22:00 - Proteinshake with 4 dl skimmed milk and 80 g whey

Totalt: 2380 kcal

In the last three weeks I use water instead of milk in my shakes. Other than that, this is my basic cutting diet.
What do you think? Any suggestions on how to change it?
