hey guys, i'm really not sure if i'm eating enough, i'm currently 163lbs and my height is 5'8, this is what i usually eat in a day.

breakfast: multi grain cheerios with 1% milk and i cut banana pieces on top cuz i love bananas :) and then i usually have a low fat yogurt only if i'm still hungry though haha

lunch: whole grain panini sandwhich with thin turkey coldcuts, a unsweetended apple juice box and a yogurt or a fruit.

dinner: if were having whole wheat pasta i usually only eat a small portion, about a cup or a little more with a bit of sauce, then for dessert i have fruit, if we eat something else i always have a small portion only because my stomach shrunk since i've been watching my weight.

and i never eat any snacks cuz im almost never hungry inbetween meals..

does this look like an okay eating plan for me?

i do lots of exercise though, i play a lot of sports and skip rope whenever im bored lol.

you meals look fine to me stephanie, i am trying to cut snacks out at the moment myself! but you could always have some crackers with a topping like tomato based salsa or something if you get hungry. or a handful of nuts

You could try calorie counting if you're worried - eat about 1200 calories a day (I think - more if you're bigger). There are a few websites around that do it for you too. :)
