It's looking pretty good. Like you say- dinner needs bulking out and I'd throw in some PB or something with your pre-bed cottage cheese, but aside from that, nice work.

Oh, and there's no need to eat differently if you don't train. If you like you could skip the pre/post workout shake or replace it with something else.

Pretty good diet kid....and you already know you need to fix dinner.

Why soy milk btw? Lactose interolerant? While it won't hurt you per se, soy contains phytoestrogens which really isn't something most males want to consume.

Only thing I'd add is a small amount of healthy fat...handful of walnuts or a tbsp of olive oil in there somewhere.

Good job!

I won't bore you guys with my nutrition diet. It's on excel sheet anyway lol.

So, how do you determine if one has a good diet?
I am assuming it's according to nutritious grade of the food and protein/carb/fat ratio.

Hence, if I am eating "good" carbs, protein, and fat, with 33%/48%/19% diet with 2200 cals. Is it a good diet?

I am 5'7, 140lb meso/endo (more of endo I guess, skinny fat).
