You'll need to find what works for your body. In order to do that you'll need to start tracking what you're putting into your body - total caloric intake, proteins, fats, etc...
What that will do is let you know what your body needs. If you're taking in 3,000 calories and 100g of protein a day but still not seeing any gains (assuming you're lifting heavy and with proper technique), then you can move up to 3,500 and 120g and see the difference. You'll have to find what works for you, but you'll need to be eating a LOT.
Some eating tricks:
- Pre-cooked meals (8oz Chicken, cup of brown rice and 4oz broccoli is a staple)
- Healthy snacks in-between meals (Peanut butter on rice cakes is a great one)
- Schedule meals. It doesn't matter if you're hungry or not, you'll know you need to eat if you get a reminder on your phone.
Oh and remember, fat isn't the enemy...sugar is the enemy.
All that said, the best workout advice I've ever heard was from the great poet Xzibit:
"Lift some weights, eat some steaks."
