    I know how much and what to eat to reach my targets, my only question is, how?

    Many times, especially in my first few meals of the day, I find it hard to have any appetite. I usually eat a large breakfast, but when my next meal comes around ~3 hours later, I feel full after a couple of bites. My routine works, and I am adding the size that I want, but are there any tips from the big guys out there of how to successfully down food you don't feel like eating? Or do I need to just do it?

    Thanks guys.

    funny, i'm totally the opposite, i cannot stop eating and i'm not trying to build, its just all cardio.

    I wish i could stop eating, becasue my off season is starting and i'll never burn off what i put in

    I haven't been doing this long at all, but how large is your breakfast.... think you might be eating too much that first meal maybe...?? I don't know. I usually eat a bagel with natural peanutbutter or peanutbutter and banana sandwhich. Sometimes, I have a couple of eggs, microwaved (the perfect scrambled egg without oil or butter) on wheat followed by an apple or some other fruit.

    That aside, after awhile, I honestly get tired of eating even when hungry, but maybe you need to drink protein shakes with a small snack. There are sooo many flavors these days.

    I can tell you what my trainer tells me.... QUIT OVER THINKING, JUST DO AS I TELL YOU.... IF YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG, I WILL TELL YOU. LOL He's a trip, but I love him. Try asking a personal trainer how they get by.

    Look for higher-density foods where you can.

    For example, my breakfast is 10 egg whites and 2 cups of cream of rice.

    Midmorning snack (when not cutting) is 6 ounces each of chicken, brown rice, and veggies.

    Lunch, Midafternoon, and Evening meals repeat snack.

    Bedtime repeats breakfast - with or without cream of rice depending on body fat fluctuations.

    go for foods that are high densiy in the calories and low volume.

    hence nuts etc and seeds are great when on a bulk. DOnt be afraid of sugar peopl read way too much into insulin spikes and all that for the level of impact it actualy makes.
