In an attempt to bring up my legs a little I throw in 750 calories worth of carbs every leg day. This is in the form of 40g oatmeal with meal 1 and 200 calories worth of white rice with meal 3-5. I do this every leg day which is every 4 days.

all my workouts chest/biceps, back/triceps, shoulders/traps/abs/forearms, and legs are high volume and high rep. I do 20 sets minimum for each muscle group going up to 30 for back and rarely 45-50 for legs. with cardio a few times a week depending on my work schedule.
MY MAIN PRIORITY IS CUTTING!!!!! I am still somewhat unsure with the diet. this is how I eat now. Please advise on the diet for when on cycle as well as in PCT and afterwards.

to me you diet seems a little weak. And the fact 3 of your 6 meals are basically shakes, I've never been a fan of that. How long have you been training?

I'm curious to see a pic as well. I have a feeling your more than 12%bf and possibly don't really look the part of someone that lifts, but are looking for an easy way to "cut" hoping it will make you look like you lift. If I'm wrong I apologize. I'm basing my opinion on the fact that you are asking how to diet.

Other than that your cycle looks fine. I'd bump the test to 10 weeks though.
