I'm just wondering if the diet I'm on now combined with my gym time will give me steady progress. I'm an amateur when it comes to the gym and my diet so bare with me please.
This is my basic diet, though some things will change occasionally.
2 egg cheese omelet with a huge class of skim milk.
If my mom didn't cook me breakfast (Yes, I'm only 14) then I make myself my muscle milk shake really quick, tastes real good, and it's about 800 calories.
Peanut butter sandwich with skim milk.
Dry Roasted Peanuts, Banana
Something healthy my mom cooked, varies a lot. Usually pasta or steak.
Another muscle milk shake
I go to the gym every other day, and every day that I go I do a full body workout, with about a half hour of cardio in the beginning.
As my title says, will I get steady gains with this routine? Give me any advice you have.
I like the idea of a full body workout since your a beginner, but are you saying you do it 3 times a week or what? At 14 you could stand to eat more than that. I know most of my buddies who have a great physique now, have it from eating like animals at a young age ,while working out. So don't be shy to food. Since your probably not worried about gaining a little body fat ,while bulking then muscle milk isn't a bad choice. We all know it taste delicious ,but there are better alternatives out there. I would definitely eat more breakfast too. Make sure that peanut butter is all natural also. There are tons of great beginner workout routines on the web if you look around, just in case yours isn't already a good routine. Make sure you hit the main workouts such as squats, dead lifts, bench, etc.. Post your workout and we can check it out for you.

Only you will be able to find the answer to that by tracking your calories, body weight, and looking in the mirror. Otherwise any answer you get will be a guess.
If your body weight is X and you find your average calorie intake per day is Y and you are making steady gains in the gym without adding excessive fat then you are taking in enough calories. If the progress stops, which it probably will at some point without bumping up calories then you know you need to eat more.
