Am I eating enough for the amount that I workout?

Well I started about 8 months ago running 3 miles a day but since have increased to 7-9 miles a day. On the day's that I run 9 miles it seems like nothing I eat will quench my hunger. This is my diet plan I am trying to lose weight but I dont want to be starving myself either. This is what I eat in a day.

Morning after run: 1 bagel with 2 slices of cheese and 2 eggs and cream cheese

meal 2 (snack) protien bar that is 290 calories

Meal 3 Dinner 4 boneless chicken thighs vegetables and a bowl of soup

meal 4 (snack) Jacks links beef jerky 100 calorie pack

Meal 5 (last of day) a can of tuna fish mixed with mayo and 3 slices of cheese.

I also weightlift 3 times a week. I am a 26 year old male, weigh 215lbs and am 6'4. What do you guys think? The time that I usually feel that I am not eating enough and starving is right after meal 2 I was thinking instead of just having that be a protein bar maybe incorporate a real meal in there like a sandwich or something.

I am open to any and all suggestions, thanks!

You should add more protein to your diet, chicken breast, salmon, or beef. This will make you feel full longer and keep you lean.

Well this is not a proper diet that your body wants. After your exercise you can eating enough so that you cant go towards your goal of weight loss. You have to choose the best diet plan for you and also you are required to start cycling in your daily routine which is very effective for you to get your goal. Try some digital fitbit devices that also plays very important role towards your goal of weight loss. Share your problem with your doctor to get your goal.
