Re: apparently not eating enough?

i don't really measure out food but ill try and give you a general idea.

pwo(9:00am):
2 cups of milk

breakfast(10am):
4-5 eggs, 2 handfuls of carrots, handful almonds

lunch(2pm)
1/2 lb chicken, handful almonds, carrots, celery, salsa

snack(4pm)
1-2 apples, cashew butter (probably something close to 1/4 a cup)

dinner(6pm)
4oz grilled bison, 1/2 an avocado, big salad w/ grilled vegetables

thats a typical day for the most part i suppose

Yep, you need to eat way more, what you describe is probably barely over 2000 cal. Double the portions at your meals.

Re: apparently not eating enough?

Since you are not lifting a lot of weight, it hasn't been hard to get those numbers eating a small amount of food.

If you'd like to squat 250, then I think it's safe to say you will have to eat more. If you're happy squatting under 200, then that's your business. But, it will be awfully hard to improve your Oly lifts when you squat so little.
