I hesitate to say this, because you shouldn't be scared of putting a bit of fat on. But I wonder if you would get just as much muscle and considerably less fat gain with a few hundred calories less. Say 3200 and see if you can gain on that.

Also, have you got any fruit and veggies in there?
Yes I do. There's always one banana in my shake and then i like to have an apple or two or some grapes before a workout
