Good diet/bad diet?

Hi there folks,

Been training for about a year and a half now but its mostly been cardio and machines at the gym. I've lost a couple stone but want to start doing free weights and do a little more cardio. Can anyone give me an idea if what I'm eating is ok and make any suggestions where needed.

My diet is as follows:

6:00 - Wake up and go for a 30 min run
7:00 - Breakfast is usually a couple slices of toast with some cottage cheese or Porridge or wheetabix with some fruit + a cup of coffee(trying to limit this as I know I drink too much)
10:00 - chicken/turkey salad sandwich - possible coffee but again I'm cutting down
12:00 couple pieces of fruit and another chicken/turkey salad sandwich
3:00 - another coffee break....suggestions as to what to eat here!
4:30 - Training - its been suggested in the diet forum I mix up a whey protein shake for after this, I'll see about buying some soon
6:00 - Dinner is usually chicken/fish with pasta/tatties and veg
8:00 to 10:00 - Need a suggestion for somethin nice and filling to eat here as I always find I'm still a bit hungry at this time.

Did a little measuring too so here goes

Age - 26
Height - 5'10"
Weight - 95kg....doh
Bodyfat - god knows, was around 21-23% last year, someone can tell me what they think once I get some pics up
Neck - 17"
Chest - 43"
Waist - 36"
Biceps - 17"
Quads - 24"
calfs - 17"

17 seems to be the magic number for me. The not so magic numbers and the bits that bother me the most are my waist and chest. There's muscle there believe me but its just hiding for now. I'm hoping the running will help get the bodyfat down.

    Maybe some cottage cheese blended with some tuna, flax seed oil and water for your last meal?

    You really need a nice meal at 3pm so it can sustain you for your workout. Perhaps a homemade MRP if you are at work?

    I will leave the diet thing to some of the more knowledgeable guys, but a little bit of information you might like to know........... Basically all greek god scupltures, painting etc, have the same measurements for Neck, Bicep and Calf. It is know as the Adonis Rule, and is said to be the true sign of a greek god!!!

    Bloody hell Stegsie! how cool are you for pointing that out

    Now if I could just get the fat bits reduced and maintain those other proportions I'd be well chuffed.

    The now its less Greek god and more sack full of Greek yoghurt! Lol

    Cheers though thats put a smile on my face that'll last the rest of the day!
