54g of protein

15:30 - jacket potoate with 1 can of tuna and baked beans & protein shake (optional) in water

69g of protein (milk) 53g (shake in water)

18:30 - same as above without protein shake

27g of protein

20:00 - roast chicken with a plate of rice

[i have no idea how many grams of protein is in the chicken cause it dont come with a nutrional value label]

1 protein shake before bed in milk (400 ml)

42g of protein

Milk is semi-skim milk.

Protein intake is : 303- grams
Im not going to calculate the carb intake cause its going to take forever

You could do with eating some fruit and veggies. How many total cals? Are you bulking? What are your goals?

The questionable choices I see are cheese (go for low fat if at all) and the baked beans (sugar content).

I want to bigger as in lean muscle.

My fat intake is low so i'm not concerned about the cheese.

The baked beans has like 0.7g of fat in every 100g i think, i ocassionally add 2 bananas and 4/5 strawberries in the protein shake.

Yes it sounds like your fat intake may be too low. You want at least 20% of your daily calories from fat for healthy hormone production. Get it from healthy sources like nuts, avocados, fish and olive oil and supplement with fish oil.

I wasn't complaining about the beans for the fat content, I was saying they have a lot of sugar which is empty calories. Go for a "healthy choice" version.
