Critique My Diet Please

Backround: I’m 15 years old and have been training (seriously training) for about one year. I’m 5’10" about 180. I feel like I put on fat very easily. I was always heavy when I was younger and lost about 20 pounds of fat about a year and a half ago.

Right now I am trying my best to carb cycle, using three days, high, med and low. High days are on lower body days, med upper and low off. My split is upper/lower and if its relavent, I’m following Eric Cressey’s “show and go training”.

1/2 cup oats
3 eggs
2 pieces turkey bacon

2 scoops whey/casein blenc

Lunch:
8 oz chicken breast
1 cup brown rice

Snack:

1/4 cup dried cranberries OR one piece of ANY fruit

Dinner:

salad with 1 tbs EVOO

2 scoops whey/casein blend
2 tbs. peanut butter

Youre food choices are good but you didn’t list the macronutrient and caloric content, which most of us won’t calculate for fun considering it’ll take about 15 minutes to figure out. Please list them.

I recommend vegetables with most meals, or at least more than you have now, and a tablespoon of flaxseed oil or six fish oil capsules if the fish your mom serves isn’t a fatty fish.

Keep in mind, you’re fifteen years old. Watch what you eat, but don’t make yourself crazy if you don’t plan on competing in bodybuilding at a very young age. Have fun, work out, and prioritize things like lifting, school, and meeting people.

180# at 5’10" is not a high weight, but I have no idea what you look like.
