Another poster already said something but you seem a little misguided about the whole process. Eating 'like a pig' is not going to get you anywhere. It's very important what you eat. Eat like a healthy person (until you feel full) but eat proper food. No white stuff (rice or bread or pasta), no refined sugar, eat brown rice, vegetables, no fried food, eat lean meats, vegetables, fruit. The hardest is not to eat the refined stuff - but you can get really good rice here and the fruit and veg is so cheap and fresh. The meat is OK, too (but often fried).
Working out three times a week is good but it really depends on how you work out. You really need to work on form so you work the muscles you intend to work in the way that really stimulates growth.
Like the other reply said, you do need to sleep really well and not over-train. So, you should consider training in cycles.
Without proper food, proper rest and proper form you will be going nowhere, slowly. Shakes and stuff will only complicate things.
