Never hungry? Watch
I'm currently trying to gain weight and I need 3200 calories to do so but I only manage to eat 2400-2700 everyday. I'm basically 1 meal short everyday.
I have a protein shake and a light breakfast at 8am which = 1200 calories.
At work I try to eat a meal with 550 calories+ but I only ever manage to finish a sandwich which is 250 calories (2pm).
After work I eat a light meal 300ish calories as soon as I get home (6pm), then I work out and be starving by the time I drink my last protein shake at 9.30pm.
So my question is why am I not able to fit food into my system for lunch. In the evening i'm about to have 1500 calories within 4 hours. But between breakfast at 8am and lunch at 2pm (6 hours) I can only manage to eat a sandwich.
My Fitbit tells me I only do 1200 steps at work. Is this why? the lack of movement is making me not hungry? When I ask other people how many steps they do each day, it's always 10K+ or some even do over 20-30K.
Luckily at my office we're allowed to work out at the in-office gym in our lunch break. Will getting on the treadmill for 30 mins before I eat make me eat more? Or do I need to do something else because right now I feel physically sick trying to even finish my 2 slice sandwich.
You'll want to focus on the neglected food groups, such as: the whipped group; the congealed group; and the chocotasic! Be creative! Instead of making sandwiches with bread, use pop tarts! Instead of chewing gum, chew bacon. And remember, you're not sure about something, rub it on a piece of paper: if it turns clear, it's your window to weight gain. Goodbye Everybody!
So I have no idea what to do, if I cut out the protein shakes I eat too less and lose weight but if I do have them then I can't even eat 3 meals. It's not a new thing. I've been trying to gain weight for 2 years. At the started I gained 18kg within 9 months but since then only 8kg in 18 months.
op you eat such small amounts you might find it's because your stomach is small. you could make some (healthy) snacks to top up on throughout the day or try to increase you stomach capacity by eating slightly more than you're comfortable with, but without making yourself sick, until you're better
