Its been a while since I've been on here.. since I bought my first Maximus weight gain. I've been drinking one or two shakes a day but then stopped for a month. I put down roughly 3000 calories every day, and about 4000 on weekends. However, most of these calories are put down between 12-5pm, I don't usually each much for breakfast because I'm literally not hungry, and when I try to shove food in my mouth it doesn't work. My question is, is it my fast metabolism?
No, you're not eating enough... I'm cutting on about 3200 cals right now.

I have to eat 4500-5000 calories a day by the way.
Of course the obvious recommendation is to eat consistently throughout the day so your body has a regular supply of fuel. So based on your following comment that is something you may want to adjust.
This may have something to do with you not seeing results. Maybe someone can chime in here and answer that question. If the answer is NO then that would be the first thing to try changing because I'd guess that may have something to do with it. I can't imagine someone as skinny as you say you are not being able to gain weight on a 3-4K cal diet.

Meal frequency has very little if anything to do with gaining/losing weight.
