I wanna start lifting weights again and get on a really good routine, and hopefully make some gains. problem is I don't get hungry, and I don't really like to eat much.
If I start lifting, will I get hungry and eat more? Or will I just get tired and not lift as well because I'm not eating...?
also random question=
does lifting heavy and low reps give u same results as lifting lighter and high reps?

Low reps w/ heavy weights = bulk/mass.
High Reps w/ lighter weights = definition, a leaner/cutter look.
Spencerjrus hey everything you said was right except for the part were you told Mitch that High Reps w/ low weight= definition, and looking cut. Thats a myth. To get cut its dieting and some carido to lose BF.

you will have to start slow and just force yourself to eat, adn eventually you will get to the point where you have to eat 1000 calorie meals to even get close to full, and then your hungry an hour later, it will come with time, but you still need to force yourself to eat more for now, keep track of what you eat, www.fitday.com

Back in action...
High reps/low weight==endurance.
BTW, i didn't know everyone is forcing themselves to eat.
Yes, higher reps will build more endurance. But I don't care as much about endurance as I do about strength. That's why I use lower reps.Originally Posted by PYRO
I used to have to force myself to eat a lot. But now I think my stomach has expanded and I get hungrier quicker and it takes more to fill me. Pretty much what emjlr3 said.

Sometimes I can't even tell if I'm hungry or not. I'm "hungry" when it's time to eat. I can't even imagine eating without a schedule now...I wouldn't be able to tell when I wanted to eat and how much I wanted.
Thanks a lot guys, I appreciate the help
also try focusing on calorie and nutrient dense food. for example dont fill up on bread and just add another meat portion
If you're like me, the more active you are the hungrier you are. If I eliminated weight training and cardio from my day I could probably live on less than 2000 cals. But if you lift and keep your body going, your body will give you signs that you need more food by means of hunger.
