Contrary to popular belief, it's not a good idea to consume too much fat and calories to gain weight. While it seems logical to do so, it's better to gain weight in a healthier fashion so you don’t increase your risk of heart disease. You should eat calorie rich AND nutrient rich foods.

Instead of eating 3 meals a day, aim for 6 mini meals with each meal ideally containing a protein, starch, and a vegetable. Protein shakes and energy bars are also good for weight gain.

Plant fats such as nuts, peanut butter, seeds, hummus, olive oil, and peanut butter, are high in calories and nutrition.

Opt for high calorie juices instead of water and high calorie condiments like mayonnaise and Caesar salad dressing.
