    Im eating as much as i possibly can. 5 to 6 times a day with snacks and such. I usually feel like i cant move after every meal. I am also eating clean and healthy.

    Now in the past couple months that i have been eating so much i have gained maybe 5lbs. I know eating is the only way to get bigger, but am i doing something wrong? Any negative effects of eating so much?

    Don't worry too much about eating clean and healthy, if you want to put on weight just EAT. Try eating foods that are more calorie-dense if you feel like you get full too quickly. Make shakes. You can easily make a 1000 calorie shake and down it in 30 seconds.

    Most importantly, if what you're doing now isn't working..change what you are doing.

    breakfast usually eggs or cereal or oats, then the rest of the time im always eating sandwhiches or chicken/beef with rice/veggies. Ill have a smoothie like once every other day or so. But the bulk of what i eat is like food i make. Doesnt sound like much but its 5-6 big meals. I easily get 1-2x my body weight in protein from foods i eat.

    that's good but even 2x your BW in protein is only 1100 calories. You say you're eating a lot but you also say you're not gaining. So you're going to have to eat more.

    sure, 1g protein = 4 cals, 1g carb = 4 cals, 1g fat = 9 cals

    the calories in OJ are mostly from carbs.
