As a hard gainer I have to eat around 3500-4000 calories a day. As I gain more and more weight am I going to have to increase my caloric intake? To not only feed the increased muscle mass I have put on but to get more muscle on top of that? It may become pretty difficult to keep up a proper diet if so. I have tried searching the forums / googling this for a while and I can't find any info on it. Been lifting for just over a year now and I've plateaued, I am guessing it's my diet or my over consistency in the gym. Thanks in advanced for the answers.

Yep. As your weight gain stalls you'll need to bump your calories by about 200 at a time.

Think of one of the foods you eat daily. Now add 2tbsp of peanut butter to it. Profit.
