Calorie dense foods: The addition of calorie dense foods such as nuts, whole grain pastas, raisins, whole milk, pure fruit juices, butter, avocado, flaxseed oil, fish and complex carbohydrates is a healthy way to add more calories to your diet. Avoid sugary foods, sodas, and chips. Although they are indeed high calorie, they do not provide appropriate nutrition and are difficult for your body to process. Good luck
