Meats and fats contain no fiber.

When I went into maintenance I struggled with increasing my calories as well. I ended up adding in a sweet treat every day (my fiber was low so I added some newton cookies that have fiber so that won't help you lol), and also increasing my portions of my proteins by a little bit. Like, eating 6oz of chicken instead of 5. Not a huge change but enough to get my calories up. Also I did like JEN mentioned... switched to full fat ingredients, using a bit more olive oil w/ my cooking (which increased the flavors, didn't make it greasy or anything) etc.

Depending on what you eat now, use the full fat versions of things like yogurt, cheese and cottage cheese. Use olive oil to cook. Add in some avocado to salads and sandwiches. use whole eggs instead of egg whties. Add in a boiled egg to lunch/dinner or a regular scrambled egg to breakfast. If you're currently not drinking any of your calories, perhaps add in a small glass of juice or some chocolate milk.

I'm going to be increasing my calorie intake by about 250 calories per day, so I'm trying to figure out what to eat. The current way I eat now is very mindful of my fiber intake...unlike many people, too much fiber (say, over 26g per day) stops/slows the "end". My Dr actually told me I eat TOO healthy and needed to lay off the veggies, fruit, and whole grains to reduce my fiber.

So, since I need to eat more, how am I going to do it? The foods I eat now leave me fuller than full and struggling to get close to 1400 calories in a day. I've already decided on a 2nd tbsp of peanut butter sometime during the day, but that's more fiber.

What do you eat that helps you reach your calorie goal for the day, but isn't packed with fiber?
