Can't eat enough.

Can't eat enough.
I found a math formula on another site that you can use to see how many calories, grams of protein & carbs (I'm going to try carb cycling so it varies)you should eat a day.
I came out at about 3,800 calories a day with 228g protein and anywhere from 171g of carbs on light days to 285g of carbs on heavy days.
The problem is that I can't seem to eat enough in a day to reach those amounts.
Anyone have any suggestions?

(multiply that by 6 and you've got 4500kcal).
Hell, I just ate a 6 dollar burger, a large fry, and a shake and I'm still starving...I think that was somewhere in the realm of 1500kcal (Not exactly healthy..hahahha)

I was just going to mention that.Originally Posted by tattoopierced1
Anyways, try adding another meal to your regimen(sp?) You should be eating a small meal every 2-3 hours. So if you are eating a meal now every 3 hours, try dropping back and eating a meal every 2-2.5 hours in order to fit the extra meal in to get the calories that you are needing.
