Although i am a 15 year old male teenager, this gets somewhat hard. I am on an "UNRESTRICTED" diet, meaning, any food goes, (what nutritionist told me), but i still want to eat somewhat healthy.
What are some good calorie dense foods that you recommend that are tasty? xD
I already got....
But i need some more suggestions
Hehe, anyway. Some more suggestions are full fat tofu, full fat dairy like milk, cheese, and yogurt, avacado, corn, potatoes, beans, tempeh, whole wheat pasta, barley, any kind of nut or seeds, olives, whole grain breads... There's alot to choose from.
If it's not too personal, can I ask what brought on your weight loss and inability to exercise? I apologize if I sound nosey, I'm just curious is all. :o
the doctor/nutritionist, believe it or not said foods like "Domino's Pizza", etc, at the moment is fine, because i need to gain weight back. The doctor/nutritionist recomended ice cream 0_O "Full fat ice cream xD".
Thanks for the suggestions, almost forgot about avacado :)
A combination of Undereating due to a partial ED brought on by not being able to work out/excersize and an injury, and muscle loss.
Maybe we could help with that!
Make sure you use full fat everything.
If you can, use 2% or 3.5% milk supplemented with skim milk powder.
Almond butter is better for you than peanut butter.
But if you're looking for "healthy", one avacado has nearly 300 calories.
If I had to eat 4000 calories a day, I'd eat about 10 Mrs. Fields cookies. Those are TASTY, and not too unhealthy.
Hi I know this is an old post but in case it's still relevant:
What about cream-based soups?
or chowders, like corn chowder or clam chowder.
When you make sandwiches, use a really good, dense bread, maybe a kind that also has some seeds and grains on top. Spread mayo, butter, avocado, hummus, cheese spreads, aioli, tapenade, etc. Use roast beef, turkey, any kind of meats or meat substitutes, make sure to add cheese. Provolone, cheddar, pepper jack, brie, goat cheese, feta cheese, just to name a few.
Cut up a baguette into circles, drizzle each with olive oil or come up with other combinations and put it in the oven.
eat spaghetti and have a side or garlic bread.
Make vegetables but add oil or cheese.
Make salads but use oilsin your dressings. A great salad is a greek salad: lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, feta cheese, olives, banana peppers, onion, goat cheese, dress with a mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, and salt. Eat with toast or croutons or both!
Mac and cheese, but make it yourself with a really good cheese, and whole wheat macaroni.
I need to go now but if I think of more I will add them!
- trail mix
- dark chocolate
- whole wheat bread
- bran muffins
- dried fruit
- olive or vegetable oil
- full-fat dairy (whole milk, full-fat yogurt, etc)
- protein shakes/bars
- granola or granola bars
- stews/soups (Cream-based are best)
- if you like coffee drinks full-fat lattes, etc are good
- eggs (scrambled, omelets, etc)
- supplements (Ensure or Boost Plus, they have 350 calories per 8 oz)
- salads with croutons, cheese, meats, nuts, heavy dressing, etc
- drinks with calories; they don't fill you up as much as solid foods do (juice, milk, gatorade, etc)
- oatmeal made with whole milk, with nuts & dried fruit stirred in
