Default Problem figuring out macro's

tomorrow will mark my first week of proper training.
I've got my training program sorted now, but I have some problems with my diet.

I forgot about macro nutrients.
When I was going to start a few month back when I didn't really know what I was doing, I went on a 3000 calorie diet.

The diet I follow now is the same as that one, I just took away 500 calories.
I realize now though, that doing so wasn't a good idea, because the macro nutrients wouldn't be balanced seen as I took all the calories off the carbs.
How do I balance it?



2500 calories per day a day.

meal 1
.1 and a half cups of porridge
.6 eggs (4 whites, 2 whole eggs)
.2 cups of vegetables, 2 apples

meal 2

.3 table spoons of peanut butter (got the organic one with no sugar)
.2 slices of whole wheat bread

meal 3
.half a cup of rice
.1 piece of fish

meal 4 - PRE WORKOUT
.1/2 a cup of porridge

meal 5 - POST WORKOUT
. Post workout protein shake


meal 6
.6 oz of sweet potato
.1 piece of fish


It was originally the diet from one of the 12 week teen bodybuilding plans on bodybuilding.com.
What I did was halve the amount of sweet potato and rice.

I don't know weather its complicated to workout, or weather I'll have to redesign everything, but it seems pretty confusing.

Can you give me some advice on what to do and how to balance my macro's?

Thanks people.
