Okay, your protein is way too low, and you could do with some more healthy fats.

How about some natural peanut butter, some apples and bananas, lowfat cottage cheese instead of the yogurt, and some more green veggies? Maybe oats for breakfast with the eggs? And ditch the juice. Nobody should be drinking juice. You want fruit, eat the fruit. Raw almonds and walnuts to toss into your cochee?

Artificially sweetened whey protein might be another very cost-effective choice, and get some dextrose from a u-brew to toss into it for the fast carbs.

I looked at yesterday's diet. 37% of your calories came from fat - 193g of fat 59g of sat. fat.

too much fat in my opinion, even for a bulk. perhaps this was your cheat day?

Sorry, but this simply isn't true. Dietary ratios are misleading at best.

Fat and protein are essential macronutrients that are best thought of as LBM-dependent doses. Some fairly standard guidelines would be as follows:
No less than 1.0g protein per lb LBM
No less than 0.5g fat per pound LBM (to support endocrine function - ie test production)
Carbs - whatever. They're not essential. Fit 'em into your calorie allowance once your fat and protein needs are where you like them.

In practice, I like my fats closer to 0.8g/lb LBM, some like 'em lower. But the "percentage" of my calories from fat really doesn't mean much. Bulking or cutting, you still want to get in at least your minimums for protein and fat. If you drop them along with your calories on a cut, for example, you risk getting in insufficient amounts of these essential macronutrients.
