Try a protein shake to get in the extra calories. I usually make a shake for breakfast a few days per week that is about 400 calories. I use 1/2 scoop vanilla whey protein, 1 cup of skim milk, 1 small banana, 1/2 cup of strawberries and 1 tbsp of Jif. Yum!!

cut back a bit on your water, which may help on wanting or feeling the hunger come back.
Yes water is good for you, and you do need some, but I wouldn't replace it with more liquid.
Or try some higher calorie foods instead of the lower calorie alternatives, a handful of almonds, or add a little peanut butter - we like to have it with 1/2 an apple.

hey y'all... i have not seen this topic yet and it is much needed advice again... i love the feeling that i am getting from my work outs, i love seeing the results esp in my belly area.... but i have come to a road block. it might be a really simple fix and i am just not seeing it. i seem to be burning to many calories and not takeing in enough! now i know that it would be simple and probably is... to just eat more, but i have a hard time eating enough now! i am mixing my water during the day with powerade since i was drinking too much water (15 glasses a day)... i am just not hungry. i have no appitite and am looking for some kind of advice so that i dont undo what i just did :) so since you guys again have always been great, what can you offer as advice here.... and thanks!!!! emoticon emoticon
