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.

-google first. ask questions later.

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.

Each day is a great new start for whatever you need it to be. Embrace each day.

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

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.

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)"
