If you’re trying to gain calories, get more calories in your diet, here are five foods you can use to do that quickly and easily. Number one: avocado. Full of calories, good fat, can hardly taste it. Number two: dried fruit. Fruit that doesn’t have any of the water in it anymore. So you’re not going to feel full. And it’s loaded with calories. Tons of good nutrients, micronutrients.
Dried fruit. Number three: nuts! Of the most caloric, brazil nuts, macadamia nuts, cashews are great, almonds are pretty good. Nuts are great to add calories to your diet. For more snack-able, you can actually make nut butters.
Make nut butters. Have them on-the-go. Make spoonfuls. Four is seeds. Seeds: Chia seeds, flaxseeds, hemp seeds. Mixed in the right thing you’re not going to taste them and they’re full of energy and are going to make you feel so good. And they’re also great for your digestive system, too.
