Topic: Are there any healthy foods that fatten you up?
June 16, 2019 / By Ava Question:
I'm trying to gain a little weight, because I lost 10 pounds due to school-related stress. Obviously, I want to take the healthy route, not the McDonald's shortcut. Also, I'm not keen on pills, drugs, or shakes.
Can anyone suggest anything?

Just eat an extra 500 calories per week and you'll gain 1 pound per week. Try drinking milk (thats so easy), since most ppl don't get enough calcium anyway, 3 cups will add around 300 calories if you choose low fat varieties.
Whole wheat bread made with omega 3 and omega 6 fats (Wouldn't you rather eat healthy fats than consume more saturated fats?)
Soy milk ( another liquid, very easy to consume)
NUTS! they also contain the healthy fats and they're naturally high in calories.
Also if you're planning to gain weight, don't do more aerobic exercise than you already do or else that will just cancel out the added 500 calories unless its strengh training workouts
Hope this helps. Just eat healthy foods and you'll be fine.

My daughter went through the same thing in high school. To make matters worse, she is a VERY picky eater! I was at my wits end watching her lose weight and trying to find foods with the right blend of carbohydrates and protein that she would eat. A friend of mine told me about Nutrilite Energy Bars and gave us one to try. . . they are incredible!!! They don't have that cardboard taste like other nutritional bars I've tried. These really taste great and they helped sustain my daughter's energy and endurance while providing the protein she needed to build muscle and strength. As an added benefit, they do not have artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. Her favorite is the vanilla pretzel. (http://barmbrust.qhealthzone.com/products/product.aspx?itemno=106529)
We were so impressed by the Nutrilite product that we checked into selling the products. You can read more about this and other products on our health and fitness website www.barmbrust.qhealthzone.com . As an added testimony - it is backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee!

For healthy fattening up comes from wholesome food with plenty of protein and complex carbohydrates. Steak and potatos, whole wheat pasta with meat sauce, yogurt, ham and cheese sandwiches, fresh fruit, banana nut bread. All of these are healthy and fattening.

My brother has been trying to gain weight, and what you should do is take protein shakes once to twice a day, and go to the gym and ask a trainer any way to gain weight healthily!!!!

Well how about something like Ensure, it's not a shake per se...it is a healthy way to get the vitamins and calories you need without it being overly sweet or bad for you...

Avocados contain a lot of fat, but it's almost all unsaturated (the good kind) fat. If you're a guacamole fan, rejoice (just go easy on the chips).
