Totals for the day (roughly)
289 Grams Protein, 87 Grams Carbs, 29 Grams Fat, 1935 Calories.

-I'm taking 2 capsules of Dyma-Burn extreme in the AM and 2 prior to my workout.

What would you guys change, throw in there so I'm not starving quite so much at the end of the day? I'm assuming my calories are probably around 2000 given some measurement areas and what not. What are some good ways to fill my stomach without adding too many calories? Thanks.

Water. Lots of it.

Hot drinks like green tea & black coffee will work too.

What SP said, extra fiber helps alot as well.
Are you getting any EFAs currently?

dude, you need to eat some fruit/vegetables. whey is not going to fill you up.

Since I don't know which foods they're in, I'm guessing no. Peanut butter? Flax oil in the shakes?

In addition to what I'm having, or in replacement of something in particular? I.e. Throw a banana in a shake or two?

best source of efas is fish oil.

all i see is "lettuce." i don't know what you want to eat, but but yeah a banana would be an addition you could make. there are a lot of options, some salsa, stirfrying, steamed veggies, etc.
