If you mean that you want to eat the same amount of calories but less carbs, then eat more fats and protein obviously.
Replace some of those carbs with healthy fats.
Pretty much this. Specifically, steamed broccoli and cauliflower with olive oil and Frank’s or Tabasco works nicely when I feel the need for pasta. Tuna salad sandwich without the sandwich is good, too. Just eat it with a spoon. You can replace the mayo with a ripe avocado or with mustard. Peanut butter can be eaten with a spoon, with apple slices or with celery. Chicken breasts or thighs can be roasted in pasta sauce and taste great that way. Cucumber with hummus is another good way to get healthy fat in, as long as your hummus has enough olive oil in it.
The only thing stopping you is your imagination (and probably your willingness to make some truly horrible tasting mistakes).[/quote]
I put on weight the fastest when eating a spoonfull of peanut butter periodically whenever sitting at my desk. Try to get natural peanut butter as the sugary ones have lots of… sugar, which are carbs…
Have some water nearby, but don’t drink too much while eating or it will dilute the peanut butter in your stomach a bit.
Cottage cheese is a lot of good protein and fats, but it’s pricey. A 4% fat tub is ~660 calories and 6 servings. I eat half a tub to a tub before bed.
