    IM trying to sort out a new diet plan, and I think i need some help with it. My main problem lies with my parents though. they dont like me eating more than 3 meals a day, they say if i need more food i should just have bigger portions at those times. Obviously, for athletes this dosnt work, but they dont seem to realise that. so firstly, does anyone have any articles that I can show my parents of my food needs?

    ALso, what do people think of my diet plan? what needs to be changed?

    School Day

    Breakfast: oatmeal, 2 slices of wholemeal toast
    Fresh orange juice

    Mid- morning: tuna in 2 slices of wholemeal bread and an apple

    Lunch: tuna in 2 slices of wholemeal bread, Frusli bar, 100% rolled oats

    Post-Workout: 1 banana, 5g creatine

    Dinner: well balanced meal

    Supper: 2 slices of wholemeal bread and cottage cheese, 1 glass of milk

    Weekend

    Breakfast: oatmeal, 2 slices of wholemeal bread
    Fresh orange juice

    Post-Workout: 1 banana, 5g creatine

    Lunch: well balanced meal

    Mid-afternoon: 1 slice of wholemeal bread with meat (tuna, chicken slice), 1 apple

    Dinner: well balanced meal

    Supper: 2 slices of wholemeal bread and cottage cheese, 1 glass of milk

    just tell them recent research shows that having 5-8 smaller meals is better than 3 big meals since if keeps metabolism up and yadda yadda yadda

    that diet looks good IMO

    I dont have any links but it looks good as it is. I personally havent had a problem with 3 big meals but thats me. You almost eat the same thing for every meal :)
