Cornbread! I am trying to lose a few pounds that it put on me during the winter. There is something about it that just packs the pounds on. Drinking lots of sodas will do it pretty fast too!
Any food high in protein will help you gain weight if you include an exercise program geared to building muscle mass. Meat, poultry, fish, nuts, and legumes are all high in protein. If you are not going to exercise, I would try a high carbohydrate diet. Bread, pasta, rice, and certain legumes are high in carbohydrates. Those are the two approaches I would consider.
Fat and protein-rich diets do progress in a rapid way. Cheese and butter products, oily snacks, chocolates, soyabean flour, rice, potato recipes, non-vegetarian diets, these all are helpful supplements for gaining weight in a couple of weeks if taken regularly but in a regulated way.
I've met a few persons who accepted that they could recover their weights easily with consumption of chocolates and fresh cheese for few weeks regularly but didn't include these supplements in their routine diets for always.
I would say the best foods to eat to put on weight would be spaghetti, peanut butter and bread. Also doughnuts, pizza and soda but, they aren't nearly as healthy as the other options.
Chinese. No matter how much you eat, you will be hungry again in an hour.
Any excess that your body doesn't burn will make you gain weight. But for caloric density, peanut butter is amazingly high in calories. We use the Adams Natural PNB and it is 210 calories for 2 tblsp. Most nuts are fairly high in calories.
Its all about calories. If you ate 5000 calories of lettuce a day you'd gain weight. More weight than if you had 1500 of butter. Mind you you'd be dealthy sick
But if you wanna gain, chances are you wanna gain muscle and gain weight healthily (so no pigging out on krispy kremes!!). So more protein (coupled with exercise, such as weights training) is good.
If you have trouble reaching your daily cals, try things like -
Cal dense food - rice, potatoes, bread as staples, natural dried fruit - its a heck of a lot easier to eat 100 cals of rasisins than it is to eat 100 cal of grapes, if you are full. Nuts too, tho watch not too much and try and get raw unsalted ones.
Add skim milk poweder to your milk or anything you can hide it in
Try drinking juice instead of water. Stick to the pulpy, no added sugar kind.
Sure you can stuff your face full of cake and thats easy (unless you're alregic) but you may get health problems down the track,
Chocolates, cakes, snacks, fried chicken and burgers. High in cholesterol and fats. Best bet to gain weight!
What food doesn't matter, it's the calories you take in verses the calories burned. First, you should figure your BMR (basal metabolic rate). There are a million websites out there that will calculate it for you, just google it. They'll ask age, height, activity level, etc. and estimate the number of calories you need to live. (You'll notice if you check multiple sites, you'll get different answers, so use it as an esitmate, because most can't take into consideration how fast your metabolism is and most don't ask if or how much you exercise.) Then just eat balanced meals of carbs, protein and fats, taking in more calories than you burn. It's that simple. High cal drinks, like carnation instant breakfast makes a great calorie packer between meals.

What are some non-meat ideas that are high in protein?Aside from protein powders/shakes and egg whites, both of which I tire of quickly what are some other good ideas for getting lean protein while keeping fat levels down? I have a goal of 40/30/30 (carbs/fat/protein) I do really well...
