    Help! Can’t eat enough food

    So I have been weight training on my own since April of this year and I have noticed that I have definitely gained muscle from going from 95 on bench to now currently 165 for 3x5. But counting my calories I noticed I am not nearly eating enough to satisfy the needs that my body needs to build muscle. For example I am 18 years old, 5’11 and weigh 160. I probably only eat about 1,900 calories a day. I just don’t have the need and sometimes the time to eat. I have school, work, and soon sports that don’t exactly allow me to wip out a whole meal. I saw weight gainers were what some people used to bulk but I just don’t know how healthy those things are, I mean what’s in those things that make them have 500+ calories. I know people have said to just eat even if your not hungry, but it’s hard in a sense that I just have 0 want to eat. Any help would be great because I’m a swim athlete and if I don’t solve this by November, I’m going to go from a stick to a twig because I now weight lift.

    As long as cookies, ice cream, trail mix, and peanut butter exist than calories should not be an issue. Burgers, pizza, burritos... so many tasty options.

    Make a milkshake or something, smother a baked potato in butter and sour cream then top with bacon bits. Aim for calorie dense foods like nuts.

    Plenty of options.

    Welcome to bodybuilding where even when you aren't hungry youll find a way to get the food down your throat.



    If you really need extra calories go for protein shakes idk much about weight gainers but I doubt they'll kill u but youd probably get better results eating real food instead because like you said what could they have in it to get so many calories idk. I just know protein shakes are easy calories if you use milk with them. Speaking of milk you could chug a ton of it for calories if you aren't hungry haha

    Get a pack of peanuts from a convenience store 2 for 1$ 300calories, 24g fat, 12g protein, 8g carbs. Or if you want to add a lot of calories I have a recipe.
    2 scoops of vanilla protein, French vanilla works great.
    2 cups of milk.
    1 package of cinnamon oatmeal
    2 tablespoons of peanut butter
    1/2 to a full banana.

    Roughly 800 to 1000 calories, 80g protein, 100-120 carbs, 20g of fat. I started drinking that awhile back just cause it tasted ****ing phenomenal.

    Though if you're gaining on 1900 calories, the peanuts should be more than enough.

    Edit: weight gainers are usually filled to the brim with sugar and get old pretty quick, don't recommend them.
