Hey all. I'm working on increasing my calories a little but have a big problem with the fullness issue. Which makes getting enough veggies and fruit really difficult, because they have so much bulk but so few calories. So I was wondering if anyone had any good suggestions for higher calorie but less bulky fruits and veggies? I know stuff like peas and corn (though I really don't like either) are higher, but any suggestions for others? Same for fruit... I sometimes do prunes and bananas but wouldn't mind some more options. Also, what about other non-produce foods? Other than nuts and peanut butter, which I'm already eating. Thanks!

Yams--pack in the calories along with a ton of nutrients(more than any other veggies)
Pineapple, Cherries, Mangos, grapes, Bananas--Can eat a ton without filling me up and they are loaded with good stuff

It sounds like you're trying to stick to fruits/veggies as your main intake. So, other than what a few others said: Raisins/dates/figs, Yams/Sweet potatoes/Potatoes, Squash. Avocado and Coconut (high in fats). Also look to your legumes, kidney beans, navy beans, and chickpeas all high in cals.

Pasta's not too dense either.

Citrus fruits tend to be higher in sugar meaning more cals, Macadamia nuts are delicious, add olive oil to veggies, and of course theres bacon

Eggs.

Seriously. Get some cage fee, omega3 eggs. They are loaded with protein and the yolk is very nutrient dense. At 70 cals each, and considering it's pretty easy to knock down 6 scrambled eggs, and you can add stuff to it you'll be hard-pressed to find a better and easier source of calories.

Butter your pan, throw in 6 eggs with some spinach, shredded cheese, and a banana and toast on the side and you're looking at a 900 calorie meal that's not terribly filling.
