how this lookin?

am doing frankies 5x5 routine and finding gains are going well, yet am wondering why i have seen some people change it so they do 4x6 and 3x8 on some of the less 'great mass builders', will doing 3x8 on things like bicep curls do better than 5x5?

also, diet wise, in my first 12 weeks of the program i found that i had put on more excess body fat then was necessary- about 3 inches!!! have tried to revise my diet and was wondering if anyone could take a look...

1801 cals per day not including the omlet

189.5 grams carbs
183.9 grams protein
60.6 grams fats

this IS NOT including the omlet i have that contains three egg yolks and six egg whites- couldnt find the info on them!
looking at it like this, maybe i need more fat and less carbs? maybe a bit more protein?

breaks down to;

Breakfast
80g oats in skimmed milk
20g rasins
50g protein powder

Brunch
6egg whites, 3yolks
ketchup for taste

Lunch
2 chicken breasts
50g pasta
1 fruit

PWO
50g whey
30g dextrose/glucose

Dinner
steak/chicken x2
50-60g brown rice

Bed
salmon steak
veg

or

protein shake
tablespoon olive oil

i included more fruit and veg at meals and have teaspoon as flax oil at meals. felt that i was previously eating too many carbs as was putting on fat gains quite quick, would you say this was enough food? i am 76kg, 6ft

if your stil even reading al this thanks! if it were me i woulda logged off long ago!!

    hey pal, ask a mod to lock this and re-post in the diet and nutrition forum, you get a better response.
