    Yes, that is a lot of protein, but its almost all protein..hardly no carbs and very few healthy fats. A lot of people hear so many bad things about carbs and so many bad things about fat, that they just exclude both..Include some carbs from green vegetables, oats, rice, and whole wheat products..you have the right idea with the almonds..Try to add some more healthy fats like flax, olive oil, and unsalted nuts. I see you have included milk and PB at the end of the day to slow down digestion..good. Throw away the Jiffy and go buy some Smuckers All Natural PB (no trans fats and tastes better anyway). Also, if you have not done so, go register at Fitday.com and log your meals at the end of each day. I've been doing this for a long time and it really helps.

    The subject of how many grams of protein can be absorbed in one sitting has been debated for years. I try not to go over 50 or 60 grams in one meal, others will tell you differently. Hope this helps.

    You need to rethink things completely IMO. You are 120lbs?! Ok, that's light....let's start basic here. Forget everything above and focus on ratios and calorie count first I'd say. Have you always been light? Do you eat alot as it is?

    I would try about 3000 calories in a 40/40/20 split. Redo your meals around these, trying to use whole foods more than shakes. I'm not going to tell you to use some sugar loaded weight gainer, but focus on some whole foods more than you have above (i.e add some carbs to that diet, at your weight you can get away with it well I'm sure). Your fats are high and carbs are low......this isn't necessarily bad, but for someone who is trying to gain weight carbs will be your friend.

    Another good idea is to try and get a reading of your current bodyfat and set some limits to stop bulking and rethink your diet again if you add too much fat and too little lean. Everyone reacts so differently to diet it's hard to say, but we can see one thing is clear......you need some quality calories!!!

    You're only 16yrs 120lb, you can save a bit of money by reducing your protein shakes and eating more whole foods by following jweaves recommendation.

    dude i told you to shoot for like 250, since you said you were eating 140 a day.....i barely get 350 and i outweigh you by like 80 lbs.

    Also train properly dont just go in there and work out whatever, like you told me earlier. Read the training section and find a good 3-4 day split, eat eat eat eat!
