An hour is too long to wait after a workout before eating. I always drink a protien shake (or weight gainer if I am bulking) directly after my workout. I'll mix it in the locker room and drink it on my way out the door. As for how many calories to eat in a day, that all depends on your metabolism. Start with say 3000 calories (this is a ballpark, it all depends on your current size and calorie expulsion) over six meals and see how that goes for a week. If you start gaining fat, back off a couple hundred calories, and if you get hungry or dont see improvement, up your calories a by a couple hundred. Above all, have patience. Dietary changes take some time to show results.
