I am new here,I have been training for 2 years on and off but now i have decided to stay consistent and maybe even try competing in an amateur competition next year ( it would depend on how much i gain this winter).
I have started personal training under a bodybuilder,who takes up clients,This is the nutrition plan i have drafted myself,After reading books related to nutrition and discussing it with people who have been in sport for long.It will be very helpful if members on here could also review the plan,Give their suggestion and answer some queries.

Some questions i have regarding this plan :-
1)Should i be measuring the carbohydrate and fat intake ?
2)Since the gym is 1 and half hour drive,Should i be eating something on my way to gym or use some stimulant?
3)What oil is best for cooking eggs,I have chosen three red macadamia oil,coconut oil and olive oil.Which ones the best ?
4)I live in India so steak is out of question and is served only in fancy restaurants,I can maybe have it once a week,So i mean to ask is lamb a good alternative ?
5)As i will be working out in eve and i have read that carb intake should be maximum around workout should i go for high fat high protein in morning?
protein intake : 180 gram of protein
As far as measuring carb and fat intake go I am just looking at scale,strength increment and mirror to make assessments and will just up my food intake.
