A couple things hit me about what you are writing. First there is not enough protein in your diet and way too many carbs. Just based on rough calculations on what you supplied, your protein intake is not more than 65 grams per day while your carb intake looks to be fluctuating between 200 and 250+ grams per day. But there is still something missing. I mean eating too much carb and too little protein will prevent you from gaining lean mass and burning fat but it typically does not lead to weight gain.
I have no idea what your version of a ‘regular’ meal is. But there may be a lot of hidden fat there. Look also at the milk because if you are not drinking skim or 1% milk, you may be taking in more fat than you’d think there also.
To get real results, you have to follow a good nutrition plan. If you want to lose weight, as a guy, eat no more than 12x your weight in calories (not to exceed 2250 calories a day). Then you must eat those calories in a 40/40/20 ratio of carb/protein/fat. I know you are eating too much carb and too little protein from what you told me. I suspect you are eating way too much fat.
Dump the grape juice, the Recovery Drink and cereal. Don’t eat more than 4 prunes for a snack but better yet, eat an apple or half grapefruit or peach or some berries which are all much lower in glycemic inded. Add 2 high protein drinks per day. I keep a list of my recommended protein powders at http://www.pressplayfitness.com/members/forum/#topic/Protein-Powders.htm. So instead of a sugar rush (cereal) right before bed, make yourself a creamy protein shake. Your cereal shuts down your metabolism from burning fat while you sleep while my recommended protein shake will actually ignite your metabolism to burn fat.
Remember, your body does care what type of calories you consume – all calories are not created equal.
