Well, if anyone cares to comment, I have always felt perhaps that I consume an unusually large amount of food - so much that it's getting a little embarrassing around my co-workers when I "chain-eat" so i'm open to any comments.

Here's my food log for today (typical of most days)

Breakfast:
- 2/3 cup juice (homemade fruit/veggie from juice extractor)
- bowl of high fiber, whole wheat or granola cereal w/skim milk
- coffee
- english muffin w/egg white & deli sliced turkey

Snack:
- granola bar
- 2/3 cup fat free cottage cheese w/fruit

lunch:
- 6 oz lean meat (chicken breast or pork tenderloin) with brown rice & veggies
- apple

snack:
- protein cookie (homemade with whey isolate, peanuts/cottage chs/choc chips)
- banana
- yogourt
- 1/3 cup almonds

Pre-workout
- energy bar

Post Workout
- protein shake
- banana / fruits

Dinner
- 6 oz lean meat (chicken breast or pork tenderloin) with brown rice & veggies
- bowl of cereal
- 1/2 cup fruits

This sounds like a recipe for obesity, but I'm 5"8, 139 lbs and I train a lot so i manage to have a lean / athletic build - even though I work a 9-5 desk job during the day.
Yet I still manage to be hungry between meals/snacks.

Does this sound unusual for anyone, or do any of you eat this much?
I know it may sound like i'm bragging - truth is, I spend a crazy amount of time just preparing food (cuz I don't like fast food or processed junk) and it eats up a lot of my time and money. I actually try to eat less (skip 1 snack or 2 during the day) but it's hard to deal with the hunger.
Any suggestions or comments are welcomed.
