Maybe 1-2 vector bars and yeah that seems to be a normal day for me, i try and eat continually, but its very hard when your not hungry lol. I've been staying exactly at 170lbs so i'm guessing its just enough food for me to cut even.

Bottom line here is not enough calories. Fruit is fine and actually desirable from a health stand point but low in calories. An orange about 80 calories; apples even less, maybe 60 calories, banana = 120. Oatmeal, granola, etc. 200-250 at most. Even a chicken breast has no more than 150-200 calories.

Actually you're eating very healthy but not enough calories. I estimate maybe 2500-3000 calories here. I'm assuming you're young so your metabolism is higher anyway and depending on your size and how active you are that may be close to no more than your basal metabolic rate.
