So I'm looking to shred down over 6 to 8 weeks...
My method is to consume 5 meals a day, keeping my calorie intake under 2000 calories, keeping protein intake above 120 g and carbs under 100g.

All the carbs I consume are all good carbs ie whole wheat etc.

This is coupled with an hour gym session, heavy lifting, fairly intense working all major muscle groups.

Here's a breakdown of my meal plan today:

Meal 1 (breakfast) - one slice of whole wheat toast and 3 scrambled eggs

Meal 2 (snack) - half a peanutbutter sandwich (wholenut organic)

Meal 3 (pre gym) last nights chille with steamed veg

Meal 4 (post gym) cooked chicken with spices

Meal 5 (dinner) piri piri chicken with steamed veg and brown rice..

This is a total of 1550 calories, 145g of protein and 75g of carbs (aprox)

So is this a good plan or not?
Can you comment any experience as well just so I know how experienced and valid the comments are thanks

No, this was just an idea of what I ate today, obviously I'm going to eat different stuff.
And what do you mean?

If it's a calorie deficit you're putting your body through, it will be more than likely to work. You don't have to be extreme with the foods your diet consists of, just make sure it's generally clean.

As for the bulking posts, he's speaking of the calories you need maintain the weight loss and also to bulk (gain muscle) because you can't do either if your body's running on a calorie deficit. You'll need a plan to go back to maintenance calories (e.g. add a couple hundred calories each month) after you reach your goal weight. If you plan on gaining muscle then you need to prepare/plan for a caloric surplus.
