I'll try your recommendation. Yah my sleeping habits has really been detrimental. Everybody I know who are ripped eats four to six meals a day no exceptions. I only eat two at the moment with four to six hours of sporadic sleep...lolz!
Getting the proper rest every day is essential. I would almost consider getting 7 hours of sleep a night being more important than the work you actually put in at the gym. As for the brand of protein powder you take, it's all a matter of preference. The types that I listed all have good flavor, mix easily and are specific to my needs. I am, however, more picky on what I eat, and when I eat than other people. There are other brands that are cheaper than what I take, but based on personal experience I can promise you that what I take works very well when included with a consistent diet.

So...this is where we are right now with where you need to focus.

- Get 7 hours of sleep a night, no exceptions.
- Keep track of everything you eat in a daily journal.
- Eat 6 even meals a day, planned out 24 hrs in advance.
- Don't skip meals!!!
- Meet your caloric needs each meal, even if it hurts.

I can promise you that if you follow the information I have posted in this thread you will put on lean muscle. Eat healthy, work out intelligently, and keep a caloric surplus and your body will do the rest. Be sure to remember that it's impossible to gain muscle without also gaining a little bit of fat along the way, but once you get yourself around 10-15lbs heavier than where you really want to be, then we can start looking at how to cut your diet to cut bodyfat while keeping your muscle gains. Cheers!
