For the formula, break it up. Have him drink a quarter in the morning, afternoon, evening, and night. I used to take about the same amount of time when I was younger and that was because I drank it all at once. Believe it or not, you aren’t supposed to drink it all at the same time. Your body absorbs more of the formula if you break it up into intervals. I never have weighed my food or kept a journal but if you feel it will help you manage the diet, i would say do it.
