      Are you getting stronger? If so, eat more. Also, looking at your diet, why are you starting your day with a carb/fat meal?

              if it was me (and im not homon or skip or dante) i would tweak like this (imo)
              meal 1 oats, 2 tbps pb and 6-8 egg whites 8am
              meal 2 protien shake (as in meal 3) add oats to it 10 am
              meal 3 your normal 1200 meal
              meal 4 your normal is ok 3
              meal 5 chicken and pasta 6
              add a 6th meal of protien shake w/ 2 tbps pb 9 (since you may not be used to eating that much).... on training days id prolly try to get a shake w/ some simple carbs (like dextrose or a bottle gatorade) iasap post traning, i would follow that w/ a whole food meal... try that but yea i would say you need to increase by adding that next meal.. i dont know how grams translate to cups or oz.... but if i wieghed that much id try to get like 6 oz of protien at a time.... add the extra meal in and see if it helps. i would say this would help you gain...

                    I don't see where the 301g of protein are coming from based on the meals listed.

                      Don't count protein in foods where protein is not the primary component of the food. (Skip talks about this in his DVD and Dante and MG have spoke on it as well).

                      So though peanuts and oats HAVE some protein, protein itself is not what comprises them.

                        He might be counting indirect incomplete proteins maybe. To the op if you are doing this only count protein from meat ,fish,eggs and whey and maybe cheese . Don't include from nuts or oats etc.

                              Take away grams from pasta, rice, peanut butter, peanuts, oats, the tortilla, and maybe the cheese too. Some people count it, some don't, I don't, personally.

                              I'm not saying to stop eating these things, but the protein in them shouldn't go towards your daily total.

                              EDIT: I know this is bad news, but don't get discouraged. You did the smart thing and asked, when something wasn't working for you. Just make some adjustments, and you'll take off.
