When he says eat lots, he means more than an extra weetabix at breakfast. Train yourself to eat like a fat guy Phone Post

Eat 500 more calories than you burn each day and combine this with hard lifting on every muscle group to stimulate muscle growth. This will put you on pace to gain about one pound per week.

Do not overeat. Your body can only use a certain percentage of excess calories towards muscle growth, the rest will be stored as fat. Phone Post

To translate for Leigh, since not all of us eat that shite called Weetabix:

Eat more than an extra bowl of cornflakes at breakfast.

Try eating an extra double cheeseburger.

Some ectos don't get fat and need really go overboard to gain weight. And any fat they gain is easily lost Phone Post

The reason why some think they need to go overboard because they miscalcuate/cannot comprehend how many calories they actually need to put themselves above that maintenance number. They think that eating 3500 calories is some huge number, when in fact they need to eat 5000 to gain anything because their maintenance number is 4500.
