Do I still eat if I'm full??
I'm supposed to be taking in over 3000+ calories a day. But by the time i reach my 4th, 5th, and 6th meal I'm still full. Should I still be eating? and if so, is my body just going to convert these last 3 meals into fat?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I have alway when cals counting set out how much I nee to eat into separate meal and just make sure i. Dont leave a thing at the moment Im a 190 pound and Im just to eat 3400 cals a day Im trying to put weight on. As long as u train and eat good u should be fine it hard to stay ripped and bulk at the same time

I stay full, but as long as im under my 4k calorie goal it doesnt matter, if you wanna gain weight your gonna have to reach your caloric intake goal, Full or Not

Try eating more calorie dense foods(nuts,olive oil,pasta,ect)to get your cals in without feeling to full.

ever tried apple cider vinegar? tastes horrible but it works. i'm bulking right now and having to shove food in my mouth all day has me feeling lethargic and fat even though in the last 5 weeks, i've only gained about 1lb in fat vs the muscle gains ive had. im taking the multi enzyme formula from *** right now and it's been working wonders for me. really helps break the food down faster so i dont feel as full and i dont get that bloated feeling throughout the day either.

consider yourself lucky, im at 3300-3500 daily and im always hungry.....

For me it always depends on what type of food I'm eating. If I eat oats, egg whites, chicken breasts, lean beef, fish, white potato, sweet potato then I am starving every 3 hours. If I eat nuts, olive oil, etc. It fills me up for a long time. I just tend to keep it really clean a fat free throughout the day and that seems to help me reach my caloric goal.

Thanks for all your guys' opinions and help.
To answer you guys, I don't end up getting all my cals every day (I usually do) mostly because I'm stuffed and it just feels like all of it is gonna turn to fat. I know that when "bulking" you gain muscle and fat, but I'm concerned that eating when full is gonna just convert to fat.
If there is any advise or input you are willing to give, I would greatly appreciate it.
I'm 6'5 and been 192-195 the last 5 weeks. I want get to 205-215.

myfitnesspal.com has helped me. I also set aside one day to prepare all of my foods for the week. Carry a big ass cooler and eat every three hours. That's what I do. Hope that helps.

Many people advise against getting liquid calories and prefer whole foods. And yet some debate a calorie is a calorie. I prefer the latter.
Add some choclate milk or whole milk and some waxy maize to your protein shake. This will add some calories but wont fill you up to much. Again drink lots of milk throughout the day as its a less dense calorie packed option, leaving room for whole foods. Also try cooking with olive oil and cocnut oil those calories add up quick

I use fitday, if you have an iphone it has an app for that also.
If you are needing more calories you can add some olive oil to your shakes quick oats and natural Peanut butter, or powerbutter blended in taste good and the calories, fats, and proteins start to add up.
I have seen a 4lb tub of PowerButter for $23 and it has 28 4tbsp servings and was around 32g protein but not sure on the calories and fat right now.
Other sources are whole fat cottage cheese 12g protein in 1/2 cup and whole milk like others have said.

I'm 5'10 166lbs and I'm stuffing down 3100-3500 cals a day and can't seem to gain a pound. Lol. Doesn't matter how full u feel, just calories. Try adding olive oil or peanut butter to your meals to boost healthy calories. I couldn't get past 3k cals per day until I did that.
