- I have an ectomorph body type, I weigh 115-122 lbs
- I have never weight lifted in my life, so I am a newbie.
Should I eat clean or should I eat dirty to gain weight? I don't want to get fat.
I was told to really gain weight you have to eat every 2 hours. If I do that I would be eating 9 meals day instead of 6 meals a day. And since I am a newbie I was told to start off with 2500 calories. That means I'm eating 277 calories a meal.
Or I can eat 3500 calories a day and with 9 meals a day I would be eating 388 calories a meal.
Should I eat the six meals a day (every 3 hours) or should I eat the 9 meals a day (every 2 hours)? I really need to gain clean lean weight. I want to reach like 170- 180 lbs in 14 months.
