I agree that the most important thing is to listen to your body.

If you go under your calories once in a while, nothing bad is going to happen.

I'm Pacific time....thanks for the ideas though. I find myself short on calories sometimes and am at a loss on what to eat that's healthy before going to bed

You posted this at 4:00 pm.
What time are you heading to bed? 10:00 pm??
You may not have dinner--but you will probably get hungry in the evening---sometime.
--bowl of cereal and milk
--yogurt with fruit
--1/2 of a sandwich
--cup of soup
Etc..

I don't think it's a problem if it only happens every now and then. If you're finding it's happening often, then it becomes a problem, especially with your workout routine. I wouldn't worry too much about it if you're truly not hungry, maybe have a small snack before bed or something to try and get a few more calories in, but don't force yourself to eat a full meal if you're just not hungry. I have days like that too.

I feel very stuffed although I have only had the following:

For breakfast: a smoothie with 1/2 scoop of Whey Protein, cup of 2% milk, mixed berries (1 c.)

Midmorning snack: handful of red, seedless grapes

Lunch: two tacos made with lean ground beef, white corn taco shells, a little shredded cheese, and salsa and a side of a 1/2 c. of fat free refried beans and a skinny cow peanut butter crisp bar.

I really don't think I'm gonna be able to eat dinner tonight which is going to cause me to be way below my recommended caloric intake.

I'm even having a hard time drinking water and felt stuffed with breakfast and the mid morning snack. I forced myself to eat lunch.

I need help. Do I force myself to eat when I'm feeling stuffed and haven't consumed even 1200 calories? I'm currently at 1,048. I'm doing P90X and know I need to eat. Please help...
