What exactly do you people who eat 5-6(+?) meals a day actually eat? Because I struggle to even eat 3 times a day sometimes :/ that is plus healthy snacks like nuts and fruit, sliced up veggies etc.. I'm guessing I'm not eating enough since I don't eat any more than before I started working out a few months ago.

Wow :) sounds like a large effort for me, but I will give eating at least 5 times a day a try, thanks

You can still eat 5-6 times a day. Three of those meals being breakfast, lunch and dinner and just small meals in between. It's all about portion control and have smaller meals throughout the day. :)

Yeah that makes sense :) I didn't know protein shakes and stuff like that would be considered a meal and was confused with how much time you'd have to put into preparing all the meals and all
