If you're hungry every 3 hours, that's okay, you would be advised to eat every 2.5-3 hours anyway. Though you should really feel like it's time, not because your stomach gives you really bad pangs. You may well be getting really bad pangs, because diet is a little low. having another 50-100 calories per meal, shouldn't make you want to eat less frequently per day, but might allow the pangs to stop being so aggressive within 10-30 minutes of a meal, by giving the metabolism a little more beneficial calorie burn in the 3 hour window, as opposed to possibly some muscle instead.
It's not necessarily about getting buff, but if you were like you are now in 50-60+ years, you might find you get pain, slow movement, etc etc, that might not have been there, if you'd added another 10lbs of muscle early on, as you'd be training hard enough to preserve it after the age of 50, when test levels really drop. Having little and no training properly to even maintain that, means you could be in a poor musculo-skeletal state by the age of 60, with a bit more body fat, viscerol Fat, (Fat around the Organs), and a bit of looseness of the skin.
Then you might only have a bit more Cardiovascular ability, and slightly lower Cholesterol and Blood Pressure, compared to ordinary slim people the same age, that don't have bad habits or vices, but never exercised. Wouldn't help though if you slipped down a few stairs and fractured something, because your bones were too thin and lacked adequate muscular support. Not to sound gruesome or use scare tactics, just being honest.
So gaining some more bulk would be desirable. Like you, I never trained to be huge, but for the overall long-term health, a bit more mass is better than none. You have that chance to prevent problems in the future before they occur. It's a lot harder to rid yourself of them, (if they are problems that can be reversed to some extent), when they happen.
