    Cutting, loss of appetite.

    I've been training for 9 months and by the first 6 months, I ate/drank (including Serious Mass) everything in sight and grew from 145lbs to 185lbs, but of course I had a good bit of fat on me.

    I was always a hard gainer so it was heaven on earth to finally be able to consume large amounts of food for 6 months straight. I started to cut around September, but really got the hang of it in October. At first it was hell watching what I ate and how much, but my body got used to it after a month. I'm now 171lbs as of this week.

    Trouble is my appetite is not returning. I was consuming close to 3000+ calories a day and dropped down gradually to 2000 (for fat loss) and kept it there. I also included cardio 6 weeks ago. I dropped a good bit of fat, now I want to maintain muscle mass and slowly gain more muscle without putting the fat back on. I'm just having trouble eating even 2,400 calories a day which is required for me to maintain the muscle mass I have now. Lately, I've feel way below that and it has me worried. I seem to get full quickly and dont have an appetite throughout the day - just like when I used to be in the 140s.

    Has anyone else had trouble with your appetite after a cutting phase? Are there any tips to return my appetite back to normal?

    Okay ive never really had that problem. But i do have an idea for you. If your not hungry as much, why not just add calories to your meals in a easy way thoughout actaully eating more. Example. Why not use butter on toast instead of jelly? Or.. eat higher calorie foods. instead of fat free milk.. go for 2%. it adds up. Try things like that. Im sure it will be easier for you to reach your calories by the end of the day.

    Yes, I thought of that but would those extra calories be "clean"? Meaning, won't I get a more fat on my body.

    That raises a question. If I eat say a limit 2,000 calories a day, but it was mostly fast food/high calorie food...how would that effect BF% since the calories are limited but the quality is off?
