    Well, there's a lot of info on bulking diets in the diet forums, but right off the bat 3/day is very inadequate. You need 6-7. Real food is always best, but MRP's could be used for not more than 2 or 3. Quick absorbed protein in the morning such as egg albumin or whey. Slowly absorbed protein at bedtime such as casein. After your workout, dextrose with protein. Try making large batches of a few different meals twice per week, then put them in tupperwares for the following 3 or four days.

    If you really calculate, your current diet of 3 meals is probably under 2000 calories which for someone of your age and muscularity is below your daily metabolic use.
