Get in Touch With Calorie Density

Foods that contain a lot of calories in a small serving are considered calorie-dense, and these are your friends. They provide a good deal of energy without filling you up too much, which means you can eat more of them.

As long as they have a healthy helping of nutrients, they should make up a big part of your diet if you’re trying to gain weight.

Nuts, dried fruit, cheese, eggs and dense fruits like avocado are excellent places to begin. Breads and cereals (particularly granola) are also high in calories, especially if they include an abundance of whole grains and healthy additions.
