Bulking Causes Belly Stretch

Hey, I'm on a mass building diet at the moment. I'm 6'1" and around the 15 and a half stone mark.
I have to eat lots of food, the regulation 6-7 times a day with the help of supplements, due to my lightining quick metabolism.
 
The question I would like to ask is: Is there any way of defeating the old belly stretch, I'm quite prepared for the additional fat to come on board. But its the shear stretch the stomach gets, I look like a bloody beer gutter!
 
Should I cheat with taking something more calorie dense and is less in actual size? I don't really want to be downing mass gainers 3 times a day!

    Yes, this is what we've done with Daz Ball.  He needs huge amounts of food, so we gave him more fats and less carbs (it's still high carbs though!).

    Add more essential fats and fatty foods.  I'm not one to always recommend increasing fats, but in a circumstance like this it's the only option

    I suppose as a temporary measure it's an option. I have leant away from fats, probably a little too much seeing as I'm looking for caveman MASS. Like you say it's got to be good fats and if im sensible it could be the jolt I need.
    Cheers Big Man.

    What do you mean as a temporary measure? Why have you leaned away from fats?

    Carbs will make you bloated and have a dissented stomach, generally when you wake up in the morning that will be your true stomach size as stomach will be pretty empty by then. It is uncomfortable, but if the carb amounts you are eating arn't making you fat then there's no real reason to drop them. I am one to advocate a decent supply of healthy fats tho in general, so may serve you well here for several reasons.

    Yeah tell me about it mate. And dont mention the fact that every time you see a bird you pull your entire stomach in and try to breath normally!. Cant wait to get out of this bulk phase, its making me feel like a blob of lard.

    I have the similar issue of eating alot of whole food through the day and permanantly have a much bigger distended gutt,
    are digestive enzymes really beneficial, obviously the body produces its own enzymes does supplementing with them cause the body to become lazy and not produce its own anymore?

    There's obviously bits and bobs on this topic on the Internet, such as those pages I have pasted below. Some for and against. I need to look into this a lot deeper i think! I'll probably improve my need for such enzymes with food, cant see myself taking that stuff in pill form, take too much crap as it is.
