Default changing food intake

Calories Protein
1 peanut butter 190 8.1
1.5 bowls of cereal 177 0
2 eggs 186 13
1 bannana 200
2 slice wheat bread 180
1 plate of rice 350
2 chicken breast 172 32
Jelly 60
2X Protein shakes
w/ regular milk 680 54

1 Chicken Breast 86 16
1 Drum stick 76 12
1 meatball 77 7
3X Pita Bread 210
1/2 plate rice 170
Totals: Calories Protein (g)
Weight: 123 2814 142.1

Thats my basic diet plan... my main question is how should I vary it ... like I heard if I eat too much my body will adjust its metabolism or something like that.
Two questions about that:
1) What happens if the metabolism slows down will I just not digest as much and expel or will it turn to fat.
2) what should I do ... just eat a bit less one day... and if so what should I cut down on??

Are you gaining fat? I know you've gained some weight but if it's muscle then don't get ahead of yourself and worry about it. You've increase your calories more than strictly necessary....nothing wrong with that if it works...but if you're putting on too much fat with your muscle you can drop calories and see what happens.

Also, I would suggest you get more calories from protein. A good rule of thumb is 40% which for you is 1120 or around 2.3 grams/lb bodyweight. Much more than the usual 1.5 but like I said you increased your calories a lot. This is just something to aim for...you don't have to be anal about it. ALWAYS eat protein first, btw. Never eat carbs alone.

And no you don't have to eat the same exact amount everyday..you have leeway.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

1) If your caloric intake is greater than your output than you will store it as fat.

2) Eat more on your training days. Cut down on carbs if anything on your off days.

However I noticed your weight...I assume you want to build? It probably wouldn't hurt to keep your calories the same on both days!

Trial and error my friend. Test your program for 4 weeks and measure the results. Make changes based on results. Not other people's opinions!

Yes. It is trial and error. I think that's pretty much what I said in the first paragraph if it was my "opinion" you were talking about. Feel free to disagree with me directly on anything. I promise I won't bite .

I would point out that opinion is all it comes down to in the end...hopefully it's educated opinion. There are good rules of thumb that people can go by...a place to start and then adjust according to the individual body's reaction.

i'm pretty sure its all muscle but i think a little could be fat as well ... i'm not TOO worried about picking up a bit of fat as long as i'm making good gains in muscle as well

i still can't really pinch any where and pull up flab if you know what i mean like there is no loose parts on my body

Well good then there's no problem. The basic rule applies: eat, eat, eat.
