My ratios are about 600 g of carbs, 75 g fat and 185 g protein, as per Ice Cream Fitness recommendations (.4-.5 g fat / lbs, 1 g protein / lbs, rest carbs). I have a high metabolism, I know, but I like to eat, so I'm not complaining I realize now that the only reason I used to be fat was because I wasn't doing any training.
Great effort on the 5x5.

Diet...initial gains are mostly water increase due to increased carb/sodium whatever intake. I would bump it and analyze after another 2 weeks.

It's also a very carb heavy diet. You could eat a few more grams of protein if you get tired of slogging down all them carbs.
