if you would post a sample day or share your tracker, you'll be better able to get targeted results from what you are already doing.

Make a trail mix for snacks. Include things like nuts, dried fruits, granola, and dark chocolate chips.

Try greek yogurt, nuts, beans and dried fruits to increase your calorie in a healthy way.

Eat high density foods like nuts (nut butters), greek yogurt, beans and cheese. You could also try bulking up your portion sizes.

I have a similar problem, I've just toppped my cals up with a serving of walnuts and raisons. Worked well as I was not hungry but was able to graze on my snack. emoticon

You could add in other non-meat things, like cheeses. Also things like nuts and dried fruit are high in calorie for relatively low volume.

I have been at this since July and lost 25 lbs so far, and now that I exercise more, I know I would benefit from getting in the recommended calories. I try, but I eat mostly veggies, and I get full before I can get my daily recommended amount of calories. I am a pescatarian, so calories from meats are out. I do put oil on my veggies, I also steer clear of most grains. Any suggestions... other than "eat a cookie (like a friend told me)"
