i understand that it is better to eat smaller meals often throughout the day rather than eat fewer large meals...ive been doing just that, but now i see myself taking in more total calories at the end of each day. Should I disregard my worries or think of another diet plan to stay lean and continue to gain muscle? Good lookin on any advice.

Depends what you're eating in these smaller meals, I guess, and what your workouts are like. Look at Holyfield, for example. When he came up to heavy, he ate six small meals a day. I just found the book outlining his intake, and here it is.......
Breakfast: grits, four eggs, toast, protein drink.
First Lunch: two turkey sandwiches and a protein shake
Second lunch: two baked potatoes and distilled water
Late-afternoon snack: Two more turkey sandwiches, Carboforce (a 400 calorie carb drink), and distilled water.
First Dinner: Chicken breast, beans, corn bread, collard greens, another protein drink and distilled water.
Second dinner: (After evening workout): repeat of first dinner.
Lotta calories there, but he also obviously turned them into lean muscle.
