im no dieticain but id say add more protein to your meals. and use healthy fats for your fat source

I think most diets will continually become critiqued; overall i think it looks good.

Some things I'd consider:
1) I agree with adding more protein. Everyone has the opinion on that topic though.

2) Vegetables

3) Are you using condiments with your food?

4) Have you calculated sodium intake? 1500-2500 is recommended.

5) Are you taking a multi-vitamin? (A good one; not the ones that just go through your body undigested)

Most of the fats are healthy, I think having about 1.5g protein per lbs of BW seems high enough! I will be taking a good multivitamin, will also be taking omega 3 and I will definitely try adding some vegetables. For instance meal five/pre workout I'm only having beef mince & rice, I could easily get a couple of portions of veg in there. I'll definitely look into that one! Thanks for the suggestions so far :
