changing my diet once again

ok so heres my breakdown. ( i know its not the healthy way to lose weight but its weight loss none the less)

4-5 days a week go to gym n do cardio. 35 mins on the eliptical machine on fat burn. im trying to lose my gut n love handles n man boobs. my target heart rate is 128 i try n keep it around 130-140. after gym i go to the deli n get a wheat wrap turkey lettuce onions money mustard n roasted peppers n mozzarella chees with a small side of olives. for lunch i have 1/2-1lb of turkey sliced with some american cheese. for dinner garden salad with chicken and oil and vinegar. i know its not a good diet but i need to lose weight by june because i might be going into a police academy, and also cuz i wanna fight. any ideas on if this diet being to to bad or what any insight would be great!

I have advice to offer, not on your diet but on your cardio. The "fat burn" program on the elliptical is crap. ITs a myth that you will burn more fat working at a lower intensity. You WILL burn a higher percentage of calories from fat, but you will burn more TOTAL calories working at a higher intensity, and even though the percentage of fat calories at high intensity is lower, the total amount of fat calories burnt will still be higher. Also, if you are using the target heart rate offered on the elliptical it is probably inaccurate as it is a rough estimate. Use this formula to find out what you heart rate should be:
((220-age)- resting heart rate) X .65 + resting heart rate
and do the same thing with X .9. That is a broad zone you should be in to do cardio. BUt if you are only going 30 minutes I would suggest working a little higher in the zone, like about 80%, or doing intervals where you vary between 90% and recovery at 65%.

**Getting you resting heart rate is most accurate in the morning when you first wake up, before your alarm goes off or anything.
