Dear Lyn
Your diet seems ok, but make sure that you have some unprocessed cereals (High-Bran cereal, oats or unsifted maize meal) at breakfast and some brown rice or pasta or potatoes for supper to provide some additional carbohydrates to the diet to sustain your energy levels. Keep up the good work in the gym.
