I agree with tandoorichicken, especially the comment about eating carbs after workouts.

I'm not sure about your body type, so I can't say this will work, but for me (I'm 27 and 5'6") I try to get 35% protein, 25%-30% carbs, and 35-40% fats. I eat more calories than you, so I'm not sure of that breakdown in grams. If you are having trouble getting in calories, adding healthy fats will give you a good boost. My favorites are nuts and nut butters, as well as olive oil for my salads.

Good luck and congrats on your progress so far.
