Been tracking on fitday and I feel like I am pigging out and I am just breaking 2000 kcal! Goal is around 2500.

I guess as society, we are conditioned to believe that eating equals weight gain.

Peanutbutter and chocolate syrup if you're struggeling that bad.

Easily do 2000 cals on that alone.

You need to train yourself to eat more. Find a food you love, stuff yourself.

Peanutbutter, olive oil, ice cream, choclate syrup, milk. Blend.

Easy a 500-1000 cal shake.

This is too easy.

I made a 1,500 calorie shake yesterday that was pretty easy to down. Go check out the Recipes section for some high calorie ideas.

Vitamin D milk, olive oil, whey protein, tons of peanut butter, couple scoops of ice cream. That will get your calories going.

Eating does equal weight gain.

The point I was making was, I am trying to lose bodyfat. My mentors feel that I need approx. 280-300 gms of protein at about 2500 kcal. carbs and fats. I feel that that is a lot of food and I find myself forcing myself to eat when I don't feel hungry!

A lot of this battle is mental. When I tried to eat more on purpose, I found that food was not my desire. I didn't crave it... When I decided to do a diet, all of a sudden my focus went to something I couldn't have and I therfore desired it... There is much truth to the forbidden fruit theory...

There was a time when 2,000 calories had me quite satisfied. Now, it takes about 2,500 and yet in cases past it sometimes took well over 3,000. So, I think the body adapts along with the appitite. If you are cutting (like you said you were) then I would take this as a blessing.

I'm on a bulk and oddly enough I found myself hungry after eating 3200 cals. First time that's ever happened to me - and yes, I am gaining weight.

This is so true... A co-worker was going to do a 'fast' for just one day and I told him that its alot harder than most people think... The next morning all he did was talk about food and wander around looking like a zombie... I told him its all mental since I've always had a ton of food lying around and he could have some anytime he wants as well as he has lots of $$$ in his wallet and he can buy food anytime...

Needless to say, he was going crazy all day (yet there were other days where he wouldn't eat until almost late afternoon and not even care...LOL)...

Yeh, the mental part of EVERYthing is so underrated...

Good luck..

Peace out...
