Lonely and stressed? Kittens are very social animals and aren't too keen on being alone for the most part. How long have you had him? Any chance you could adopt one of his siblings or another kitten the same age so he can have a friend to keep him company?

Also, you might want to think about changing his diet to wet food instead of dry (much healthier for all cats, but especially growing kittens). What brand/flavour does he eat now, and when you say he eats a lot, how much is that?
