I can't seem to reach my calorie goal!!

I am still working towards that six pack and I just can not seem to eat enough. I am not hungry. I have only consumed 1200ish calories today and I am breastfeeding. My ideal is 1850-2300. Will this affect my abs?? :/

Here was my menu today:

Breakfast- Granola bar with Banana Mango smoothie.

Lunch- 1 Green  stuffed bell pepper(with rice, lean beef, and marinara)

Snack- Colby Jack cheese stick

Dinner- 2 scrambled eggs, sauteed spinach, and 3/4 cup of special K cereal with soy milk


I have some banana peanut butter bites in the freezer for later.. Am I on the right track, even though I am not reaching my caloric goal?

What about adding protein shakes? It will up your calorie intake while giving more protein.

You really need to be hitting that calorie goal, or you'll stay in starvation mode and never get where you want to be.

I usually add food between B & L.

I am trying! I just feel so full hours after each meal! I am so frustrated!
