Hello All-

Lately I want to eat everyhing in sight, especially at night!!! I m 6ft about 240 lbs high 20s in body fat. My goal is 210 lbs, I started at 270+. Currently I m changing things up and doing P90X, no comments needed on that. Here is my schedule and eating, should I be eating more? This was my schedule for the day and this is pretty typical

Yes, you should probably be eating way more.

looks like on calories, and WAY TOO MUCH liquid food. protein shakes and juice don't sit with you long. Nitrean is a good protein shake because of the casein and egg in it, but its still not as filling as 10oz steak.

eat more solid/whole food.

More solid food and more fiber. More veggies. Fill up on brocolli, green beans, cabbage, celery, etc.

Thanks guys I ll adjust and see how I feel... I upped my calories about 300 today and feel MUCH better. I ll knock out some of the liquid cals and replace with some higher fiber foods.
