Boss man says I have to eat 3300-3500 calories a day now. Eating as many green beans as humanly possible right now hoping I turn into the Green Giant or The Hulk.

Thanks! I am happy with results thus far. I am kind of unsure about adding more calories though. We will see how it goes. Derek is the boss though.

I feel you. I've been putting off bumping my calories up for a while. Former fat kid syndrome and all. However, sometimes bumping up your calories actually helps you drop fat because you've been, unknowingly, eating less than your TDEE.

DO IT !!!!!!!

4,000cals is quite an achievement if you can manage that kind of intake daily. All the best :D

Had a completely god aweful 24 hour shift yesterday. Got off work 2 hours late, pretty much zero sleep. Have not been able to sleep today because i had to go do orientation for my new job. I feel gross again today. Going to try to take a bunch of green tea and head to the gym and see how that goes. I feel so beaten and unmotivated all of a sudden.
