In brief: Protein,complex carb

Protein is an essential component of your diet, and if you are trying to gain weight, fat calories are a good way to put on weight without driving your bleed sugar out of control.
Also, high fiber whole grains will help as well. So an egg salad sandwich mixed with mayo on a multigrain bred is a great mid-afternoon snack. Eat small meals frequently throughout day can also boost caloric intake.
