Dude, I’m going to give you a warning. I’ll say this once and only once so you better listen.

Edit your post before someone reads it, throw out those goddamn eggwhites and eat whole eggs.
Seriously.

Eat more variaty of food. Where are the vegtables and the fats? If you only eat food like this, you will have a nutrient defficency and this will kill your progress. Try to eat alittle bit of everything healthy, but mostly protein.

5 1/2 hours between breakfast and lunch and then 5 hours between lunch and tea, with 3 meals in 4 hours after that? Space them out so you’re eating every 2-3 hours no matter what.

What do you do with all the egg yolks you’re not eating? Are you near Merseyside? Coz I’ll take them off your hands if you don’t want them, lol.

Ditch the bread (or have it after your work-out) and replace it with veg and fruit (mostly veg, though). I love milk, too, and drink a lot of it, but I think 4 pints is overkill. Try to get some tuna, salmon, mackerel and such in your diet. Nuts are also good for fat and protein.

Your calorific/nutrient breakdown is pretty similar to mine, but we go about it completely differently. Read the articles by Christian Thibaudeau- Nutrition For Newbies. That’ll set you straight. Good luck.

So at the moment you have given us your diet GREAT!!..

When do you workout?
How many days do you workout?
How do you workout?

It is hard to critique a diet when we don’t know what it is supplying.

All I can say at the moment is eat less because you are going to get fat since you are not working out. 2500kcal :stuck_out_tongue:
