Eating 3000 calories for bulking is easy
I was 150lbs when I started, now 162lbs, but I haven't been religiously dieting, just eating when I can.
I think 4 month it took, and then I just maintain it, if I can I'll try to get to 170-175, that's about as heavy as I want to be.
self improvement is masturbation.. maybe self destruction is the answer - space monkey.
Weight falls off of me on 3000 cals a day. Your making good progress, but as you get bigger you need to increase your caloric intake. Keep it up bro.

I've gained weight with a pretty high metabolism. I've eaten as much as 8000 calories a day for 3 months. LOL, during that time I gained only between 5-7lbs.
It my first 20lbs took about 8 months. After that the next 20lbs didn't happen for about 2 years as I was running track and lifting just a bit too often without enough food. The next 20lbs took about a year and a half.
