Alright, it occurs to me I am taking in rather large portions per meal. If anyone could advise me on how to better split up this meal, I would greatly appreciate any advice/suggestions. Thank you for your assistance.
Current Bulking Diet:
9:00 am: 1.66 lbs lean chicken breasts
1 and half cup of fat free cottage cheest- 380 cals
12 am: 1 and half cup fat free cottage cheese
2 pm: Bag of fat free turkey jerkey- 270 cals, 40 g's protein
4 pm: pre workout shake 50 g protein, 1 tablespoon glutamine
7 pm: post workout shake- 50 g's protein, 1 spoon glutamine

11:00 pm: bedtime shake 50 grms protein, 1 spoon glutamine
confused by simplicity
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.
