Have you considered reducing the amount of protein that you are consuming and increasing the amount of carbs and fat. There has been no evidence that consuming a large amount of protein will have any benefits, especially when in a calorie surplus. One gram of protein per lb. of bodyweight should be plenty of protein.

I would definitely recommend adding carbs to your post workout shake, which will replenish muscle glycogen and increase recovery.

Also if you are using whey protein for your last meal, I would recommend mixing it with milk to help slow the absorption of the whey. Whey is not really an ideal protein source, unless you are referring to its use pre/post workout.

i always have a post workout shake and some spagetti or rice after i workout, try eating something full of carbs after your workouts trust me it helps.
