If you really want to lean up watch out the high amounts of fruit. Fruit contains sugar (fructose), and is a slow-digesting carb. This is good to eat (in my opinion) twice a day, when you are just waking up as well as an hour before you work out (1 cup of pine apple, apple, banana, etc) as it will provide the slow-releasing energy you need to sustain optimum performance. Other than that stay away from white-flour other than as a post-workout snack (angel food cake, white bread with a tbsp of jelly). Everything else should be whole wheat, pasta included. Aim for a big breakfast as well to help your metabolism start up. Check out the "Get Lean" meal plan from a month or two ago in Muscle and Fitness Best of luck to you.
