225+lb guys get in here
When bulking how often do you eat? Every 2 hours? Every 3 hours?
I'm currently 215 trying to get up to 220-225 and I eat rather clean but I've been eating every 3 hours and with my time during the day to eat I only eat 6 meals a day for a total of around 3000 calories with a total of around 70g fat/200g carbs and 280g protein. I'm just trying to figure out the best way to get a little more in and still give my body time to digest it. Is eating every 2 hours too much?

if you want to gain weight... eat more.
Gaining too much fat? Increase your cardio or cut back your calories by a smidge
Still not gaining? eat more.

I've been gaining. Went from 208-215 in 4 weeks. That's not my problem. My problem is I'm STARVING when hour 2 rolls around and still have to wait another hour to eat. So I said screw it and I started eating every 2 hours today. So far I've felt more full. Maybe my body just processes food fast.

And yes I drink 3 shakes a day. Current meal plan @ 2 hours is this
2 eggs/protein shake @ 6:30
1 cup oatmeal & non fat yogurt @ 8:30
1/2 cup non fat cottage cheese w/1 banana @ 10:30
lean meat wrap & sweet potatoes @ 12:30
protein shake @ 2:30
1 can tuna w/whole wheat crackers @ 4:30
lean meat w/brown rice & veggies and or salad @6:30
Protein shake @ 8:30

I eat very 2.5-3.5hours depending on my work and class schedule. I do 6-7 Total meals depending on the circumstances. Meal 1-5 protein/ carb meals 6-7 are Protein/ Fat/ Veggie. My daily Macros are 400Pro/500carb/60fat. I found just increasing the total amount of calories per meal make everything way easier, this way you dont have to eat to frequent.

Your diet looks good boston fan I would worry less on whether to go from 2 hours or three hours vice versa... increase your meal size might help

I would suggest going with more meat in your diet, bumping up the red meats will really help with your gains and they will hold you over a little longer. Another thing that you can do which has really helped me is to get up in the middle of the night and get a shake in, maybe more than one if you can. I agree with tribaltek too, milk is great for gains, I also drink about a gallon a day sometimes more if I can. Good luck with your bulk bro.

I'll start drinking more milk for sure.
I love red meat but there's not really many opportunities for me to eat it throughout the day. I'd have to prepare it before hand and I don't really have the time for that. I'll start eating it at least 2 times a week though

I'll have to start preparing them on the weekends too. Plus I'll have to find some cheap red meat because everything here is expensive as ****
