I think you're eating plenty.

My approach to diet is extremely simple. Are you making gains? Then you're eating enough. If you're putting on more fat then you want then you're eating too much. I have never obsessed over calorie intake, protein intake, or carb intake. I stick to real foods most of the time and eat a lotta beef cause that's what I like. Don't over think it.

Im with the other guys saying to try and get more whole food sources in. Protein powders are just supplements, don't make them too much of a replacement.

Exactly. If you can't get it from food you don't need it.

If you are gaining strength and "slowly" gaining weight then you are fine. Those who pig out are the ones who will be cutting 6 months from now and undereating/losing gains at the time. 2 lbs a month is good. Can you gain lean weight faster as a total beginner? Maybe, maybe not but you're better off doing it slowly rather than getting in the habit of overeating.
