Eating 5-6x a day versus fewer larger meals stimulates the appetite more though.
    Just popping in to second all of this. Carbs are king. Fat fails to fuel workouts. Extra carbs the day before a workout can cause it to be easier than you expected it to be. More meals means you can get more food in. Space them out by like 2-3 hours. It may seem like you are eating so much right now, but when your lifting actually starts to get challenging, your maintenance level ends up much higher than it would be if you were sedentary.

    Absolutely. I tried it with Pringles onion sour cream, ended up eating half the can. Then I regretted because that same money could buy me 1,5 litre of whole milk.

    That has been my experience with it. More meals is better when I am gaining. If I am losing I prefer less because I'm less hungry on fewer, but larger, meals.

    It's never enough and the milk will go further.

    Thank you so much for the advice everyone! I've heard a lot of good ideas here that I can try out.

    1) - Have more frequent, smaller meals to help boost appetite (5-6 meals a day as opposed to 3-4 bigger ones)
    2) - Maybe have a bite of a snack before I eat to stimulate appetite
    3) - Try and focus on carb intake over fat
