paulflexes saidHang out with me all day and eat every time I eat.
You'll hit 3500 calories rather quickly.
haha, are you asking me out?
@Pure - thats the thing, I don't really snack. For breakfast I'll eat a bagel with an apple and some oatmeal. Lunch is a tuna sandwich with avocado and dinner is a chicken breast with pasta. Every once in a while I'll stick something between them. I guess i should make it a habit now.
Well, I'm not saying that I have a great diet, but I am trying to eat more as well. This is an example of a typical day's food for me:
Wake up - protein shake (half measure cos I can't stomach too much first thing)
Breakfast - a big bowl of oats soaked in pineapple and coconut smoothie
Sometimes might have a mid-morning snack of some nuts and dried fruit.
Lunch - chicken, houmous and salad in a wholewheat tortilla wrap, or wholegrain bread - 2 of these
Afternoon snack - protein shake, banana, maybe some more nuts
Early evening - maybe some toast with peanut butter, or a piece of fruit, or a protein cookie
Dinner - meat, carb, veg e.g. chicken ramen soup with pak choi & celery, grilled pork loin steak with brown rice and mixed veg
Later - depending what time dinner is, maybe a bowl of cereal, something like that
So like I say, I'm not saying my diet is perfect but I'm definitely eating more than you, and for me it's a work in progress - if you keep adding food into your diet (even when you aren't hungry) then it will help you grow and your body will come to expect more food which makes it easier to stick to, because you'll feel hungry more and want to eat!
Definitely get into snacks though, good snacks I mean - protein bar/cookie, peanut butter on wholegrain, pitta bread with houmous, pot of cottage cheese, nuts and seeds, yoghurt.
