I hate admitting this…but I know it’s true, I undereat. I don’t meant to do it, I just don’t feel really…hungry I guess. I probably average out at about 2000 cals/day. Now I’m a pretty big guy @ 215, 6’2, 18 ish % bf, I know that I need more calories. The problem is that it’s hard to get more clean calories in. Of course I could be wrong about the undereating but I doubt it.
-2 cups of fruit (320 cals, 80g’s carbs)
-protein shake (2 scoops = 200 cals, 40g’s protein, 10g’s carbs)
-homemade wrap made of whole wheat flatbread, chicken, avocado, tomato’s and several other vegetables (not sure)
- .5L of water (0 cals)
-protein bar (300 cals, 23g of protein, 40g of carbs)
-Half barbecued chicken (300 cals?, 40g’s protein?)
-2 cups of cucumber salad (400 cals?, 25g’s carbs)
-2 cups green tea (180 cals, 28g’s carbs)
(estimated totals for the wrap added)
Total: 2000 cals, 150g’s protein, 230g’s carbs
(Estimated from FitDay)
Also I take 3 tabs/pills/capsules of fish oil in the morning if that matters.
Can anyone who’s had issues with this plz give some insight?
According to Berardi I should be eating 6800 cals a day (f***) during football season…s*** I’m eating a third of what I should be. I just downed like 4 handfuls of almonds which brings up my protein by 50g’s (according to the can) :).
The thing is that I don’t feel hungry, I seriously would eat more but the problem is that I don’t feel it when I’m hungry (except for the middle of football practice which doesn’t help very much with my concentration on the game). What other snacks would be good?
