Derek, I suspected I may have been undereating but I've posted a little while back as to the fact that I don't get that hungry, or I should say I get full quite easily (especially from all the veggies). Should I still try to force myself to get in more calories?

If the bulk from veggies is keeping you from eating enough, you may have to reduce them, or eat more starchy veggies (ie. sweet potatoes, parsnips, carrots) to get more calories from them (and add fat to them, of course).

Yes. Do what Dr. G said. Whether to add more fat is up for debate in my opinion. Whatever you run best on is what you should increase. Not a whole lot of need for carbs for an oly lifter, but if you run better on carbs and continue to lean out, then switch those figures for carbs and fat (i.e, lower fat, higher carbs).

You've got enough caloric room just to get to maintenance that you can give yourself a week or two shifting the two macros around.
