You get used to it. I thought I could never lift in the morning without eating something. Then I found that I could lift just fine on a cup of black coffee. I still have a protein shake at around 8am and a spoon of peanut butter, but I could easily go without it. Caffeine is your friend - it blunts hunger and pretty soon you get used to not eating in the morning.
+1 to what CG and RJ above say... also, cornflakes, milk, sandwich, yogurt, fruit twice a day.... looks like your diet is all carbs with very little protein except for the meat for dinner and a little from the milk. In addition to keeping track of calories, determine how much carbs, protein and fats you are consuming. Do this for a couple of weeks and report back.
GN, I thought form looked good. Your upper body was tilting forward a bit on the last 2 reps. That's going to put a bit more torque on your lower back. See if you can focus on sticking your ass out and keeping upper body upright through the last reps.

You can eat pasta by the pound if you burn 5000 calories a day as an Olympic rower or as a cyclist in the TdF.

What's the point of going through the trouble of putting his feet up on the bar and then raising his hands up and defeating the whole purpose? I mean, you might as well stay on the ground. On seconds...

I just never understood why people pay $60 an hour for someone to watch them do sit-ups. +1000. In fact, I would posit that having a trainer is mandatory for something as technical as olympic lifts.
