Try to find a time of day when you're hungrier and add your calories at that time. For me, I'm always really full throughout the day, so it's easiest for me to add a smoothie right after breakfast on my drive to work. I workout in the morning, so the extra calories give me energy. If I tried to eat those extra calories later in the day, it would never work.

If you like peanut butter, you could always nibble on some celery stick using peanut butter as a dip - or hummus. Also, sometimes just mindlessly nibbling on a few nuts, seeds or dried fruit such as dates or dried fig, through the day can help but doesn't tend to overfill you.

I am not eating enough calories for my workouts. the problem is exercise decreases my appetite. I eat more when I do NOT exercise.

any way to bump up and get more nutritional needs when i don't feel too too hungry?
