Eat **small** meals every 2 1/2 to 3 hours, this is even more important when cutting because your metabolism will start to slow down if you don't feed it, yours might aready be slowing down if that's all you've eaten today and you're not hungry. You will start loosing strenght if you don't get enough protein in there to feed the muscle too

I often end up forcing down food, no matter what my goals are at the moment. I'd try to avoid dropping your calories too low, even if it means putting some extra food down your throat.

yep, yep. Small meals will keep your metabolism high. I fear your metabolism is slowing down, and you wont be cutting as much as you did before.

Depends on how many calories you are aiming to get in, lets say 2200 divided by 6 meals = 366 per meal, give or take a little (some might be 400 others 250)

Successful cutting (unless you have great genes) takes a little bit of thinking and planning before you just say you're cutting. How many cals, how many meals, how much protein, how many carbs, how much fat, what will you workout schedual be like, how much cardio do you have time for ect.

Successfull cutting also comes from your prior failures and lessons learned. Nothing beats experience.
