    It's incredibly hard to eat that much.
    I guess it depends on what you eat. What do you eat for your bodybuilding?
    I think that nuts are by far the easiest way to take in calories. :P When I found out how much energy there's in nuts, I was seriously shocked. It was also from that point onward that I decided to quit snacking (except on a view occasions).

    I pretty much exclusively only eat stereotypically good food for bodybuilders these days. Oats, eggs, chicken, lean meat, a huge amount of vegetables, etc. I've been trying harder and harder to consume 5 meals a day to keep a constant stream of protein going through me and I think that's where the challenge is. It's hard to eat so much when you're rarely hungry.

    I think the other issue for me personally is that I have a very very high metabolism. Skipping one or two meals in the day can set me back a week in weight gaining.

    You're bulking at 2500-3000 calories?
    And find it hard to eat that much?
    uh yeah, i wouldn't say i'm bulking, i'm just trying to keep a good progression going. Is there a problem here?

    I have no idea how many calories I consume but as I'm not getting fat like a house I guess it's not too much. So far today I've had 3 weetabix/semi skimmed milk/banana.

    I eat healthily, don't really like fatty or fried stuff and can't stand chocolate or sweets, get at least 4/5 portions of fruit and vegetables.

    Will probably get cancer while some fat slob that's never touched a vegetable lives to be 100 but I don't care, I like what I eat. ;D

    I worked it out, and in order for me to maintain my current weight, I should have 1400 calories a day. I want to loose another stone by mid march so I've cut down to 1000 a day. This is what I eat a day:

    Breakfast:
    Apple, banana, water

    Snack:
    Raisins

    Lunch:
    Pitta bread sarnie filled with turkey slices, lettuce and a thin layer of salad cream (210 calories)

    Snacks
    Go Ahead! biscuits (180 calories)

    Dinner
    Home cooked food- varies daily but always some kind of meat and veg (400 calories max)

    I drink about between 1 and 2 small cups of tea a day or a herbal tea which manages to keep me full. I get my five-a-day so I'm not worried about being unhealthy.

    Your diet is epic. Good luck living past 40 with that though.

    Edit* Didnt see the sensible bit,
    my typical diet monday-thursday is:

    nothing in the morning/banana or nutrigrain bar
    1 bag of Jelly tots
    Half a bar of some kind of chocolate
    apples, satsuma's and banana's
    maybe a sandwhich depending on how I feel that day
    fish and rice/pasta/soup for dinner
    Muller light with two crushed up reduced fat digestives
    bowl of shredded wheat/weatabix

    Sunday's I work through the day so usually:
    Honey Nut Shredded Wheat
    Banana
    Maybe a cereal bar depending what manager I have for the day
    Dinner usually a roast or lasagna
    Muller Light with two crushed up reduced fat digestives
    Linseed Toast with Nutella

    Well, it's just that that's barely any food, really.
    What're you weighing?

    4 pints and a scotch after midnight = 941kcal
    An apple this morning = 53kcal

    Total = 994kcals

    On average I have about 500 calories a day - today will be less because I'm not in a good mood. I find it very odd that a lot of people here seem to have a very low calorie intake and aren't admitting it's a problem. I am anorexic, was diagnosed 6 years ago and am currently back in therapy. Although sometimes part of me likes to pretend there isn't anything wrong, I can't be in permenant denial. Obviously it's a slow process but eventually I hope to spend much less of my time obsessing over food because at the moment it's a fully time occupation for me. It's had a massive impact on my health, you can't live at such a low BMI and again although I pretend I don't feel it when your heart is giving up on you and you've lost your hair it's quite a stark reminder that things are wrong.

    Although personally I don't find this topic triggering I can see how it could easily turn into a competition without anyone even realising it.

    That's a good point. Good thing that you're not in denial! Stay strong. The only way to solve some problems is to face them head-on.
