No, it's not such a bad idea to consume the shake in the morning. Sleep is very important. If you don't want to go to bed earlier at night in order to wake up in the morning, then drink your shake with H2O (so it gets into your system faster)and you should have something to eat right before you go to bed (atleast protein, maybe protein shake with milk - I personaly use milk as my casine protein instead of buying it.)

hmmmm...didnt know milk was a form of cassein protein....good to know

I dont recall your goals, but if your trying to cut a bit at the same time, i wouldnt advise milk before bed as it spikes insulin levels.

found this...

http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/mic.html

line from article:

Micellar casein is the natural, undenatured form of casein found in milk. It is separated from milk by means of ultrafiltration, without the use of chemicals, which increases the amount of bioactive milk peptides that support immune function as well as enhance muscle growth. A property of micellar casein is that it may have the ability to form a "gel" in the gut. This provides a steady release of amino acids into the blood stream, which makes it an excellent choice for a long lasting anti-catabolic protein

So I counted all the calories,protein,fat,carbs and it seems like I have a little too much of everything?

Breakfast
7:50am
3 scoops of Muscle Juice
13.5oz of Water
2 tablespoon of Flax Seed Oil
2 tablespoon of Olive Oil

Cals 1222
Protein 41
Fat 68
Carbs 114

Snack
10:00am
can of tuna or salmon or shrimp
1 cup of Pasta
1 cup of Broccoli

Cals 585
Protein 51
Fat 2
Carbs 89

Lunch
11:30am
4oz Chicken Breast
1 cup of Brown Rice
1 banana

Cals 534
Protein 38
Fat 11
Carbs 72

Snack
2:00pm
1/2 cup of Beans
1 cup of Lean Ground Beef
Whole Wheat Bagel
1 cup of Carrots

Cals 685
Protein 45
Fat 30
Carbs 62

Supper/PreWorkout
4:00-5:00pm
5oz of chicken breast
cup of brown rice
cup of corn
1 cup of V8

Cals 487
Protein 47
Fat 12
Carbs 47

Post-Workout
6:00-7:00pm
3 scoops of Muscle Juice
13.5oz of Water

Cals 743
Protein 41
Fat 14
Carbs 114

Snack
9:00-10:00pm
1 cup of Cottage Cheese
1 Whole Wheat Bagel

Cals 399
Protein 38
Fat 4
Carbs 56

So that comes out to a total of
Cals 4655
Protein 301
Fat 141
Carbs 554

I am pretty sure I calculated everything correctly, I used the nutritional labels on the foods at my house and fitday.com for the ones I didn't have.

I am 150 pounds, 5'10" with really low bodyfat and trying to gain as much mass as I can. To me it looks like i've got way too much of everything. Let me know what you guys think.

No way man, especially since your starting out w/ low bodyfat, you can never eat to much. Its just when your starting to put on more fat than muscle you'll need to tone down those carbs. And if you did calculate everything good, 300g protein for 150lbs is good, thats 2g pro/lb. How long have you been eating like this and training hard?

Alright you're the boss! I haven't been eating like this for a long time, about 2 weeks. I've been working out hard for a little over a year. I definitely wasn't eating enough food that whole year. I started off being 135pounds. Gained a disappointing 15 pounds in all that time but I'm finally gonna change that with this new diet.

I don't know where you get 51g of protein in 1/2 can of tuna. 1 can of Flaked light tuna - skipjack- has:
30g protein

How much water do you consume in a day?

err, It's supposed to be a whole can of tuna and the pasta had 10 grams of protein in a cup but that could vary depending on what I buy. I consume 4 litres of water a day.
