I am bulking and consume 3300 calories a day split up into 6 - 550 cal. meals (7am, 10am, 12pm, 3pm, 6pm, and one more before bed). I know some people like my brother eat whenever they can take the time to do so. No schedule or particular number of meals or anything. I was curious and wanted to know

Would there be any difference in the amount of weight gain, assuming the person was gaining weight, using the eating schedule above and that of eating the same amount of calories split into say, 2 meals a day?

My assumption is that gains would be hindered by eating fewer meals allowing several hours to pass in between even if the same number of calories is eaten at the end of the day, same workout routine and same sleeping habits. Then again I could be totaly wrong. Tell me what your opinions are.

eating more often will keep your metabolism at a higher level
as far as I know, yes it will make a difference, however I dont know enough about it to quantify the differences

Your metabolism gets boosted each time you eat, but the amount of the boost is determined by how much food the meal contains. So, more smaller meals is basically equivalent to less larger ones (at least as far as metabolism goes).

One area you might see a difference is the digestion of the food, it being tougher to digest a larger meal.

Nitrogen balance might also become a problem if you are only eating 2 meals/day.
