    I'm trying to work out 5 or 6 days a week - 4 gym workouts and 2 cardio.

    Problem is that I'm hungry all the time. Not sure how to eat. Trying hard not to eat crap between meals, but I get so hungry, so I don't eat as much as I should and I'm losing weight. Lost 3 lbs in the past week!

    Trying to gain but want it to be muscle not fat.

    What do you guys eat for snacks? For that matter what do you eat for breakfast lunch and dinner?

    My own assortment of mixed nuts with raisins and cranraisins.

    My most common breakfast is a banana, 3-4 egs scrambled with 2-3 slices of turkey breast and seasoned with cajun seasonings...and a big glass of 100% carrot juice.

    Lunch varies. Usually I trade lunch for an extra helping of nuts, and nibble on them all day while I'm working. I average 2 cups of nuts (8 servings) in the 6 hours I work.

    Dinner is usually my biggest meal, so I split it in half and eat dinner twice, with a 2-3 hr wait period from first to 2nd...and sometimes with a workout in between.

    Hi there,
    If you`re working out as much as that,being hungry all the time sounds pretty normal-I`m just the same!You could go for dried fruits and nuts,low fat yoghurts and milk based drinks,smoothies,ready made cereal bars,etc.To build muscle eat about 1.5g/kg. of body weight and train!
    For my main meals it`s complex carbohydrate like rice,bread,pasta,potatoes,quinoa,etc.,with lots of lightly cooked vegetables and low fat protein sources like chicken,fish,lean red meat,milk,low fat cheese,and vegetable proteins like beans and pulses and legumes.
    Breakfasts are mainly cereals like weetabix,shredded wheat,porridge,etc,;all high in fibre,low GI;with added fruit,honey,yoghurt,nuts;also toast,jam;fruit juice,tea,etc.Hope this some help.All the best!
