Read the FAQ and The Routine Design for Dummies on the homepage of the forum. That's a huge start and you'll be way ahead of the vast majority of 18 year olds doing bro splits

Start here, there's good info.

Once you read that and the idea of macros, I would just make reasonable choices of healthy foods. It's best to have a well rounded diet, but eating specific bro foods all the time won't help much in the long run. Eat good food that you actually want to eat, whatever it may be.

I've done my share of bulks with no cardio, and my opinion is you're better off doing at least some for general health, even when bulking. It requires you to eat more calories, but in the past I've found my poor cardiovascular conditioning getting the better of me during squats or some other lifts before my lack of strength does.

The best diet IMO is the one that you'll stick to. People can't just eat chicken, pasta, rice, broccoli, etc. all the time. You'll enjoy the process alot more and never feel like you are really restricting yourself from eating things you like.
