Hey guys, I just wanted to hear some suggestions on how I could bump up my calories a bit. I was thinking about eating some nuts throughout the day, and maybe adding some oats to some Greek yogurt or something like that. I weigh about 150 pounds, and I eat a couple eggs for breakfast with cheese and a one pita, a plate full of rice with chicken, or some type of beef, or just pasta for lunch, and usually the same thing for dinner.
Anything you guys do or snack with to add some extra calories?
Plenty of option. That being said, your breakfast in particular looks like something I’d eat to lose weight. Try increasing your regular meals first. Here’s what I used to eat every morning:
two cups of oats
two cups of full fat yogurt
1/2 diced apple
that’s about 1,000 calories.
For calorie dence foods, try
whole milk (what magick said)
nuts of any kind, also nut butters (Dan John recommends PB&J sandwiches for gaining weight)
oats and oat bars (as long as there isn’t any shit in them - read the label!)
Where are you getting his current breakfast from? Am I missing a post?
