Check out some of the nutrition and workout program articles on this site.

Your program seems solid enough except for your back day. The back covers a large amount of muscles and all you have his deadlifts and pullups. Don’t get me wrong- deadlifts and pullups are great excercises but you have more muscles to hit.

Also, deadlifts and back squats will be difficult to handle in the same week due to lower back usage. Cut arms out of your chest day or back day- one or the other. You train those muscles at the end of your week and at the beginning of your next workout week. Cut out the rest day on Sunday. Try a 2 on and 2 off schedule.

Are you seriously eating 358g of cottage cheese 2x a day? with the banana and pbutter that’s over a pound of food. That meal also sounds quite fatty- if you must eat that amount of cottage cheese- cut out the banana and just eat the cheese a pbutter for a P+F meal.

Hope this helps,
Hank
