One of many programs on this site or others.

Get your diet in order and be consistent.

Diet is going to be much more important for losing fat then a particular program. As long as you lift hard, 5 lbs in 5 weeks should be pretty easy. I really recommend Destroying Fat as a workout for fat loss, although the programs Pozz listed will work as well if you control your diet.

Lean for summer? You know its November right?
Try to get big and strong now. Loose 5lb of fat in April.
