My Diet For Frankies 5x5 Comments Please!

Hi I've started the Frankies 5x5 routine, been on it for 4 weeks now and I gone from 14st to 14st 7 in those 4 weeks is this a reasonable gain? or am I gaining to quick ie more fat than muscle? This is my diet...
 
Mon - Fri

6.00 -  125 grams oats with a handful of blueberries
             40 grams protein in a shake 2 cod liver oil tabs

6.30 - 20min speed walk to work.

10.00 - Chicken sandwich & tin of tuna, apple & banana.

12.30 - 125 grams with handful of blueberries
               40 grams of protein in a shake
              250 grams of natural yoghurt, apple & banana.

16.00 - 20min speed walk home.

17.00 -  huge plate of spag bol or chill or chicken bacon pasta etc

1900-2100 - 45mins to 1hr training(mon,wed and friday)

Post workout -  125grams oats and handfull of blueberries
                           40grams of protein in a shake
 
This is totally consistant apart from sat-sun when I swap the 10.00 for a 4 egg omlette with mushrooms and cheese, and maybe a sunday roast.
 
Any help well appreciated

    hi what was your diet like before you started this 5x5 routine, ? and yes it does sound like a lot of weight gain in such a short period of time, from what i have read i would say you need to eat proper food instead of making your diet from protein shakes,

    I think you could vary you diet a little more, lots of oats. Why not replace the shake and oats with wholewheat bread/pasta and some meat for one of the meals.
     
    Just my two cents, I'd get very bored very quickly following that diet.

    Got a body like I feed it CREATINE.
    My birth stones are DIAMOND.
    My favourite colour's GREEN.

    cheers guys, diet did include more bread before I started the oats, it's bit of a mare where I work only a small engineering firm like 4 of us there and we're always pretty busy, job's come in and are done on a delivery of same day or next day so your always running around like a loon! So I'e just tried to get the essentials but sort of quick LOL full of excuses me!
