    You will need to provide more information before folks can help/answer your question.

    i.e.
    1. Age
    2. Sex
    3. Height
    4. Weight
    5. Goals
    And quantify you food intake.



    9:00 Porridge + Shake


    How much porridge, what additions if any (jam, honey, fruit etc) made with water/milk. How much.


    What type of shake. how many scoops. Mixed with what?



    11:30 Cashew nuts & 2 pieces of fruit


    How many cashew nuts 2 or half a kilo? what exactly do you mean by "2 pieces of fruit"?

    2:00 2.5 chicken fillets and sweet potato


    What weight is the chicken? I have seen breasts from 100g to over 300g. How much sweet potato? Do you not have any other veg? sauce/Gravy?

    5:00 Go the gym


    What do you do at the gym? Post your routine.

    8:00 2 cans of tuna


    Again, what size (g/oz) are the cans


    Without knowing the answers to the above, it is difficult to know whether you are gettign enough calories in the correct macro breakdown.

    Now take all that, stick it into fitday or myfitnesspal or 1 of the many other calorie tracker sites out there & see how many calories you're hitting! Workout your maintenance calories & compare! if your under your maintenance eat more! :)

    You don't do legs at all! Start squatting & deadlifting!! I'd scrap your overall gym plan, google starting strength or mass made simple or insert other beginner programme here & take it from there! You'll get better results!
