High calorie foods... - May 29th 2012, 10:14 PM

I'm going to the gym intensely but don't want to lose weight at the same time though. That's what I see most people go to the gym for: to lose weight/keep slim. Not me. I wanted to be clear about that.

So what relatively healthy high-calorie foods are there, and not too expensive either? I've picked up the following off the internet (some of which I knew already):

Pasta - less calories than a lot of people assume
Nuts - my problem with nuts is my wisdom teeth are coming out
Fruit juices
Peanut butter (healthy or not?) - I rarely eat peanut butter
Yoghurts
Bananas

Anything else I can add to this list? The problem is I've already increased my food intake but it's not enough. If I eat any more I might just be sick. Bare in mind that it's not advisable that I divide my meals into 6, 7, or 8 a day. I need to have 3 at set times, to allow it to settle and digest in my stomach. Otherwise, if I go on the treadmill with the food still being "processed" in my stomach I end up puking in my mouth.

Some foods also digest faster than others. Such foods are preferable.

I just want general advice. I don't want to be stuffing my face with cookies and chocolate and McDonalds and such, that's pretty foul. Stuff like eating butter and drinking lard/vegetable oil is out of the question for me. Some people seem to advise that... ugh.

Once I reach that maximum limit I can, whilst still eating healthy, I'll be happy. I don't intend to go beyond that, otherwise it does more harm than good.


"I don't care about politics"
Then politics doesn't care about you either. Truth. You've got to make your voice heard, if you want to be listened to. But that's too logical for some people, so let me go a step further. Not making your voice heard, leaves other people free to hijack it by speaking on your behalf, even if they don't actually give a shit about you. That's politics. So, make your voice heard. That's not a quote from anywhere. That's just me.

Peanut butter is pretty healthy, though it should not become a consistent part of your diet.
Fruits are actually good to add to a healthy high-calorie diet due to the simple carbs (they are more concentrated).

In the grain foods, I would suggest cereals, rice, beans, and potatoes.

And one of the most important and healthy things you should include is protein. Any excess protein that your body ingests and doesn't actually need, will turn into fat. Protein comes from poultry, fish, lean beef, cheese, eggs, and nuts.

From my experience when i was trying to bulk up and had a limited schedule with meals i found a mass gainer shake worked well. I had great results with quick mass by all max. However food wise you can't go with:
-Pasta
-egg whites
-beef
-lean chicken
- rice
-potatoes
-dark chocolate

Crazy part I have seen dudes like Ronnie Coleman eating a whole costco chicken as part of his meal plant. Stats on that is:
[EDIT]
171 grams of protein
4 grams of sodium

I would suggest finding a protein shake that also has some creatine content, and NOT one of the shakes that says "low fat". Apparently whey protein is the best, and it comes in all sorts of flavours. Taste really good in smoothies - you can whap a lot of calories into a smoothie btw, cos you can add your protein powder, egg if you want, bananas, berries, basically anything that tickles your fancy. There's also good protein shake recipes a simple google search away

(Protein shakes were suggested to me because I don't eat enough meat.)

I can try some of this, thanks. I already use protein shakes:

I ain't really trying to bulk-up either. I'm doing lots of running, cycling and rowing at the moment. Next week Monday, I'm shifting towards doing some more "weights"... stuff like press-ups, sit-ups, those sorts of things.

I need lots of high calorie food because I'm literally averaging probably [EDIT] calories an hour for 6 hours (including breaks). I don't know how much for sure though. It's a wild guess. That doesn't even include the afterburn after workouts, which burns quite a lot more too.


Ok... calories ain't allowed. So I'll rephrase and say that I probably average 2km on the treadmill every 15 minutes, at most. That's quite a lot so I think it's less than that. I'll check for sure later when I go again.

MOD :

Hey guys, let's remember to not provide caloric numbers while posting in this forum. You can suggest things to eat not to eat, but stray from mentioning how many calories, please.

Thank you!
