Re: What foods are used to gain weight?

jwapostle,

Eat foods that are starchy, fatty and have a high sugar content. In other words, anything high in calories.

Here's a good combination: Make a peanut butter-banana-raisin sandwich. First you apply a generous amount of peanut butter. Then take a small handful of raisins and press them into the peanut butter. After that you take a ripe banana and slice it lengthwise into three pieces and place the slices on top of the peanut butter. It can be an open-face sandwich or you can put a top on it. This works well with whole grain pita bread.

With this combination you've got plenty of good fat from the peanut butter. You have whole grain bread and natural sugar from fruit. It's a safe bet to put lots of weight on the average person. And it makes a good evening snack.

Talking Re: What foods are used to gain weight?

Thanks for advice. Peanut butter I enjoy; BAnanas are great and raisin's are really enjoyable. Will start on it tonight. Trying to gain 10 pounds want to get to 163. 62 is a great age for a lot of running back and forth on the farm with the critters. Than ks for the advice.

Re: What foods are used to gain weight?

Other high calorie nutritious foods include nuts, avocados, fatty fish, and dried fruit. If you want to gain muscle (in conjunction with exercise) rather than just fat, you will need to include some protein in the high calorie foods.
