    appetite


    I've been looking around the forum a lot these past few days and I see threads all over where people ask "how much are you eating?" and it's never enough.. but the primary issue there is appetite. I, for one, am never hungry enough to down tons of food for cals. I am wondering does anyone have any tips on increasing appetite?

    I asked Easy already and wanted to give him credit for this one. I'm hoping this thread benefits more than one person because I'm sure that I'm not the only one with this issue.

    Claritin makes me hungry, also Benadryl makes me very hungry but it also makes me very tired and grumpy.

    Honestly, you should never let your body get to the point where it is starving as this is when you're most likely to binge and overeat. What I do is to have 2 protein shakes per day with a serving of fruit and 1-2 oz of nuts. I take these between my "big" meals and they don't fill me up, but still provide a tremendous amount of calories for growth.

    Unfortunately, I don't have any difficulty having an extremely large appetite. 5k cals isnt a challenge. I simply love food. Increasing frequency of food intake seems to rev up my appetite.

    I think the most underrated aspect is to eat the foods that you love. I could easily eat 5 lbs of shrimp and salmon each day, but I can't quite afford that.

    I use to have the low appetite problem, but after forcing myself to eat big for a few days eating big got to be easy. I also cut down my coffee intake which really helped me feel hungry.

    well the coffee makes sense. with caffeine suppressing appetite.. metabolism raise is a plus though

    enjoy it or not. 12 eggs and chicken everyday gets very boring. what i did to stretch it is REALLY work on eating alot during breakfast. now i eat 3 cups of oats, 6 eggs then 30 min later a shake. just keep on forcing it in you. what also helps me around lunch/dinner when u get your big meals in, i try to take a crap before i eat.

    You should take a look at Ravenous (Have a look at the write-up in the Anabolic Designs section in the Supplement Companies sub-forum in the Supplement section)

    just stretch your stomach. the more u eat the more u want to eat and pretty soon u will have stretched it out enough that if u dont eat u will be starving. one thing that helped me stretch it out is pasta and lots of it.
