I just bought 2lbs of sweet potatoes, some tomatoes and lettuce. I'm tired of eating Brocolli+Spinach for fibrous carbs and brown rice for complex carbs... so use what I listed above (you can still use brocolli, but I ran out of spinach) to modify my actual diet to change it around and have the right time of carbs (complex and simple) at the correct times, etc:

Meal 1 :
1/2 Cup Raw Rolled Oats
10oz Skim Milk
2 Egg Whites

Meal2 :
Can of Tuna
1 Cup of Brocolli & Spinach
Flax Seed Oil softgel

Meal3 : (Pre-Workout)
Medium Size Apple
Protein Powder + 6oz Skim Milk

Meal4.A : (Post-Workout)
Protein Powder + water
5g Creatine + Powerade

Meal4.B : (Taken 30-40 minutes after PW shakes)
Chicken Breast
1/2 Cup Brown Rice
1 Cup of Brocolli & Spinach
Flax Seed Oil softgel

Meal 5 :
Chicken Breast
1/2 Cup Brown Rice
1 Cup of Brocolli & Spinach
Flax Seed Oil softgel

Meal 6 :
1/2 Cup Cottage Cheese

Looks solid to me and actually very similiar to my cutting diet. Looks like you're aiming for a 50/35/15 which is what I would do.

One thing I would change is take your 1/2 cup of rice from meal 5 and put it in meal 2. I try to aim for green, fiberous carbs my last 2 meals of the day and keep the oats and rice on the first 4 meals. I would also add more egg whites to your first meal or even some egg beaters. I usually do 4 egg whites and 2 whole eggs with a half cup of oats and 8oz skim milk for my first meal.

First meal is good, second meal needs carbs (is this basically your pre work meal? like 1-2 hours before your workout, 15 min before workout eat apple and ahve shake). Something like rice or sweet potato with the tuna.

The rest seems fine though, good breakfast, you have a pre and post shake, and drink during your workout. You have good meals post workout and a good prebed meal as well. Calories and all that seems good, however, what is your weight? Since up towards 1.5 - 1 ratio and higher with protein it really loses the effect. 1.3 - 1 should be fine, so depending on what weight you are - you can adjust that, but I dunno.

Overall - great, really not much to fix.

and yea, I agree with above poster (i posted mine before seeing his, so replying again), def move the borwn rice from 5 to 2. You will need that earlier in the day for the upcoming workout more than later on. The greens along side the chicken are fine.

Where can I add the sweet potatoes that I just bought? And should I just make a salad with all the veggies and eat a cup of that?

Replace a serving of brown rice with the sweet potato. Make salad, eat 3 or maybe even 4 cups. Veggies are g00t!
