I am confused.. I am trying to gain weight and have changed my eating habits from 3 large meals a day TO 6 smaller meals including two meals of protein shakes.. It seems i am hungry more often now. Is that ok? Also If eating 6 small meals is reconmmended to increase metabolism, wont that actually make u lose weight rather than gain? someone help a bro out

It helps to eat more frequently so your blood sugar levels are always stabilized. A increased metabolic rate means a better efficiency to metabolize foods you eat.

As long as your caloric intake is higher than your maintainance levels are,you will gain weight.

If you consume more calories than you expend then you will see a rise in weight.
