Re: What do you think of my program and diet?

The 5x5s will start to get too taxing, probably sooner rather than later...it's a lot of volume at a relatively high percentage of your max and you'll have a hard time adding weight to the bar each workout for long.

Your approach looks almost exactly like a 4x per week 5/3/1 template (big lift+assistance+metcon) so I'd recommend looking at switching to 5/3/1 percentages rather than a linear 5x5 fairly soon.
