I just need some advice and input on what I should change about my diet because I'm going insane trying to perfect it.

Stats : 5'9" 195 and at about 20% bf.

meal 1
1 whole egg
1 egg white
1 banana
1 scoop whey
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

meal 2
1 slice whole wheat bread
1/2 can tuna

meal 3
2 slices whole wheat bread
1/2 can tuna
apple

5g creatine
1/2 cup grape juice (45 minutes before workout)

meal 4 (PWO)
2 scoops whey
5g creatine with 1/2 cup grape juice
1 rice cake
1 hour later
1 cup brown rice
4 oz chicken
1-2 cups mixed veggies

meal 5
usually whatever my mom makes, lol.
(pasta, ham, any other sort of meat, potato, rice, mostly healthy things)

meal 6
1 scoop whey
1-2 tablespoons natural PB

**multivitamin and 2 calcium pills daily**

This is the basic guideline I follow. The things I ALWAYS HAVE everyday include 1 can tuna, 4 oz chicken, veggies, whey, brown rice, 3 slices whole wheat bread. The other things I add in depend on what I have in my house.

On average, the totals come out to:
1800-2100 calories
50-60g fat
195-230g carbs
190-220g protein

As you can see, my diet and macros really fluctuate (sp?) from day to day.
I'm not sure if this is a bad thing, because I am seeing results, but I want my diet to be just about perfect so I don't have to worry as much as I do about whether I'm getting what I'm supposed to be each day.

I'll give my routine if that helps

Monday-chest/back
Tuesday-HIIT 20 minutes/abs
Wednesday-off
Thursday-shoulders/bi/tri
Friday-HIIT/abs
Saturday-legs
Sunday-HIIT every other week

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I would up the cals to maybe 2500-2800 and see how it goes from there. Try to get more fat in there too. Otherwise, it looks pretty good.

It would be better if you ate some cottage cheese or something like that before bed instead of taking the whey.

I always have trouble increasing the cals, because the foods I eat are limited in my house and I always worry that I won't have enough for the whole week. My dad does the food shopping on a pretty tight budget. :/
