I am looking for a diet check please

Hi all,
I am looking for a diet check please, just a nod to let me know whether I am on the right track or not.

Firstly, my goal is an muscled athletic physique, I am not after a typical BB physique (thankfully as it looks very difficult to achieve!). I would however like to gain a bit of weight as I feel that I am a bit light at the moment at 6ft Tall and 12 Stone.
Training wise I am sorted using a program from the articles section of the board. I do some SS cardio to keep my fitness up too.
Current diet is as follows:
6:20        5 eggs (2 yolks and 5 whites), 50g oats, 15ml Olive oil Scrambled. Coffee. OJ.
9:00        1 protein flapjack (bigfellas recipe). Coffee.
9:00 – 10:30 Nibble on three plain oatcakes.
10:30     200g chicken and rice
12:00     Train
1:00        PWO shake – 70g whey, 60g dextrose, three plain oatcakes, bannana
2:00        200g chicken and rice
3:00        Coffee.
4:00        90g tinned mackerel in olive oil
6:30        Evening meal, usually meat and veg
9:30        125g Cottage cheese
10:00     Bed!
 
Also I have a bag of seeds that I snack on through 9 – 5 and will throw an apple in there somewhere too. I have a couple of cups of green tea at night and take a fish oil cap in the morning.

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated, I am looking to see if there are any glaring omissions or holes in my plans.
Thanks in advance.

    looks fine

    could maybe do with more vegetables / salad

    no need for 70g whey pwo.. 40 or 50g is plenty, same goes for dextrose

    PWO shake is overkill- stick with 30-60g dextrose, 30-40g whey.

    Why no more carbs after PWO?  Add some to evening meal and/or 4pm meal.

    Eat more fruit and veg!

    Unaffiliated.

    How long have you been following this diet and what have results been like so far?

    Looks fine as a whole, perhaps add some healthy fats into the last meal of the day, peanut butter would work well.

    Drop the carbs down PWO though no need for dextrose, oat cakes and banana. Go for either a banana (or two) or just the dextrose at around 50g max.

    You beat me to the answer!

    Ok, noted with the PWO shake, I will reduce the amount (and save some cash!!)

    So two pieces of fruit, a serving of OJ in the morning and veg with my evening meal isn’t enough? Must try harder then! I do like veg so will try and get a serving in during the day. Would broccoli and Olive oil dressing be ok to add to this lot? If so, where would you suggest that it is inserted into the diet?

    Thanks for the help, it is appreciated.

    I have been following this for about three months, the results are that I think i am growing (using the mirror to determine this!) and I am getting stronger. I am IMO staying at about the same fat level.

    I usually try and 'season' my veg using olive oil as part of my evening meal (should have stated this) do you think thats enough fats here or would you add more?

    Would you drop the oatcakes PWO all together?

    He added that in after the initial post I think? 

    Either way, resolved!
