    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.

    1 and half cup of fat free cottage cheest- 380 cals
    1 apple

    12 am: 1 and half cup fat free cottage cheese
    1 apple

    2 pm: Bag of fat free turkey jerkey- 270 cals, 40 g's protein
    1 apple

    4 pm: pre workout shake 50 g protein, 1 tablespoon glutamine


    7 pm: post workout shake- 50 g's protein, 1 spoon glutamine

    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.
