Advice - New Fitness goals, diet, and exercise revamp advice

Hey Guys,

I'm looking for some advice in taking my fitness goals to the next level. I have been successful thus far....

little bit about me - I'm 6'2 and 195, not fat by any means but I don't have that "fitness" or "beach body" I'm trying to work towards, in other words I have fat and little chunk on me.

Diet - This is where I feel I need the most help. To give you an example today I ate:

-half cup of egg whites, four slices of natural turkey, onions, celery, and peppers,
- Natural whole grain bread, slice of cheese, and four slices of turkey
- Snap peas (not sure you know what I'm talking about)
- Pineapple
- 4oz chicken and asparagus
- Almonds (only after I realized how little calories I ate that day, I planned on just having an apple)

After dinner I counted my cal's and i was shocked that it was 900 calories. I follow weight watches as a method of counting and keeping track ( I think this will stop soon) and try and eat natural or organic food from the ground so to speak, and also eat low carbs and high protein, although I plan on working in sweet potatoes into my diet. For drinks I only drink water, black coffee, and V8 Juice. This is genrally how I eat sometime's my dinner is different, give or take. On weekend it can get "less perfect" and I do drink once or twice on the weekend, and when i do its at least 10 beers (there is no way I could cut that out, I'm 21). Along with that goes the drunken eating after the bars (nothing crazy though I can still make decent choices, pita over a poutine for example)

Exercise - I run about 25 Km a week, but I'm working my way up, I'm good with the running I've been doing it for a while now. I also started lifting, about a month in. I do every muscle group expect my legs ( I know) and do about 3-4 exercise's per muscle group 3 sets at 10-12 reps. I will also start keeping track of my weights and reps this week, something I haven't been doing.

So my question is what should i do, continue to do, or stop (don't say drinking) to take it to the next level. I feel I'm somewhat fit looking in clothing, but not so much at the beach haha. I don't want to "get jacked" per say, more so lean out, get cut, and get a little bit mass. I want to loose body fat and replace it with muscle.

Let me know your thoughts your help is greatly appreciated, sorry if my post was long, but I'd rather give you the info up front then have you ask later...
