That is a pretty solid meal plan just from a glance, but the only real way to know is to count calories. As long as you have a small deficit of calories then that is probably good (assuming your multi vaitamin is making sure you reach 100% RDA for all your nitrients). You're a bigger person than me naturally (I only need 2200 cals/day for a SURPLUS). Google and find a calory calculator. Fill in you meal plan with anything you need to make sure you stay at a slight deficit. Personally I never worried about cutting weight as a vegan due to mainly raw food living, but these calculators will make sure you know what you need, if you do not know already.

Also adding wind sprints made a noticable cut in belly fat for me, it is the only way for me to have visible abs, as I will typically not push my metabolism hard enough otherwise. It is probably the single best way to do so.
