I find that I'm eating more than six times a day. For instance, here's a typical day:

07:00 - Whey/Creatine Shake
08:15 - Bagel (dry)
09:15 - Natty PB on whole wheat
10:30 - Banana
12:30 - Turkey breast, Lowfat Swiss on whole wheat w/ Ruffles Light (no fat)
14:30 - 4 Snackwell Cookies
17:00 - Whey Shake
18:00 - Salad (lettuce, chicken breast, shredded cheddar, cucumber, ranch dressing) _ Whole wheat Roll
20:00 - Lowfat Klondike Bar
22:00 - Nitrean Shake with TBSP of Natty PB

I weigh 185lbs. I'm currently bulking. I'm trying to get about 3,000 Calories and keep my Fats at 25% or less.

Thoughts? Thanks.

No no no no, your not eating more then six MEALS a day but you are eating more then six TIMES a day. A banana doesn't really qualify as a meal its only 100cals lol. It fine that you eat more then six times a day keep the food coming in. Dont you just love bulking, I do=)

Keep your *saturated* fats under 25% (actually, aim for about 10% of daily calories from saturates as a target). The other fats are supposedly good for you.

Saturated fats are good for you too.

why are you separating protien from carbs in so many meals?
meal 1 should be a whey shake AND a bagel with natty PB

etc...

Eat however many "meals" you want to eat to obtain your caloric goals for the day. Not like you're missing out if you eat 5 and still hit the calories you want....or eating 7 and hitting them.
