    Pretty solid overall. However I would personall change:

    Swap out the plain bagel and change it to either a multi grain/ whole wheat bagel or some type of higher quality carb source. Also would add in some protein to that meal.

    Swap out the dex post workout and again put in a lower GI complex carb source. I am not an advocate of high GI carbs to produce a insulin spike but if you find you respond to it then its fine. However just my .02.

    The pre bed meal should contain a slower releasing protein source. Take out the whey and replace it with either a caesin powder, cottage cheese, skim milk, or similar slower releasing protein sources. You could also add some natty pb in there if you want extra calories/healthy fats pre bed.

    thanks for the input, I just realized i put whey for bed, i meant casein and ya its probably a good idea to throw some good fats in there along with some skim milk. I personally respond well to the dextrose post w/o and will keep it but thanks for your advice. Also, for the bagel part I like the whole wheat idea and will look into throwing in some extra protein. Thanks again bro.
