  1. Good Calories

    I totally agree with the liquid calories, as it is way easier to drink down a protein shake, than say chew up a couple of chicken breasts. Now, I am not much for juicing, but, I good whey protein powder will go a long way in helping you get your calories in. With this, you could have a small handful of mixed nuts. However, since in seems like you really have no appetite, I would replace nuts with a piece of fruit like a banana, I say this, becasue, the lack of fat in a "meal" like this will have you feeling hungry faster than if you had something loaded with fat. One thing to remember, a meal does not have to be a massive affair, it could be as simple as a couple hard-boiled eggs and some toast or the above protein shake and fruit or nuts. If you are really having a hard time eating, try taking in a protein shake with some peanut butter mixed in--you could also mix this with milk or almond milk--before bed. One other thing you could try is to do some easy aerobics, nothing super strenuous--just do whatever you enjoy for a half hour 3 times a week, this will, over-time, help with your appetite. Hope this helps.
  2. Struggling with overhead press

    I would have to say that it is probably your form. My advice would be to take some weight off and work on your form. You do not want to lay back. It would not hurt to do some direct lower back work to help strengthen that area as well. Hope this Helps.
