    Easy high-calorie recipes?

    I've been losing weight since I started working out again, I need around 3000 calories just to maintain my normal weight of 180. I'm down to 175 after lifting weights for about 6 weeks with very little gains. It seems obvious that the issue is the amount of food I'm eating.

    Anyone have any secrets to share for getting a lot of calories? Any recipes? The only meat I eat is seafood although my diet is high protein (beans and rice mostly).

    Add 2 tablespoons of PB and 8-16oz of whole milk to every meal.

    How do you know you need 3000 calories to maintain your body weight? Do you track your calories and macros? What do you do for work? How much cardio are you doing? How many days per week do you lift weights?

    Why do you only eat seafood for meat?

    It's a guess-timate based on the fact that I have one big meal (lunch) which is usually 1200 calories, a second equivalent big meal at dinner, and then snacks throughout the rest of the day. I lift 3 days a week and I don't do cardio. I need that much to maintain 180 lbs but now that I'm eating less often it's more like 2400 calories to stay around 175 lbs. And I only eat seafood because I view red meat as unhealthy.
