If you're worried about losing muscle mass, focus on protein.

Salmon is pretty calorically dense, for fish, and obviously it contains a lot of protein.

If you use fat-free dairy, you can switch to low-fat or even full-fat, temporarily. It usually has a little more protein, too. The only problem is that it's also really tasty so switching back kind of sucks. :P

Nuts are a good addition to salads. They are high in fat but it's good fats, and they tend to have a decent dose of protein as well.

Thankfully there are no food restrictions except for pork anything else is valid. Believe it or not I completely forgot about healthy fats, they're an easy way to fill up the calories, thanks for the reminder emoticon

I'll give it a try though I'm worries it might not be very fulfilling and I'd be starving all day long, thanks for the tip though I'll definitely be trying a few options to see which one i end up sticking to!

Can you eat something with beef? I would do a nice steak (trimmed of fat) with a chimichurri sauce, and lots of roasted veggies like green beans, and some roasted potatoes. Use olive oil for roasting the veggies and potatoes. It's actually one of my favorite meals and while it's not super unhealthy, it is higher in calorie.

Chimichurri is awesome on beef, but is higher in calorie because it is made with olive oil. Here is one way of making it:

For breakfast I would do a giant omelette with some cheese and maybe something like canadian bacon added in. Add lots of veggies in there too.

Oh man, can I ever think of some high calorie meals. ;)

Without knowing particular food restrictions, I would aim to make both meals look like my dinner plate. Up to a double portion of meat/high protein vegetarian option, lots of veggies, a cup of something like rice/pasta/potatoes. Depending on whether you choose to add olive oil or butter or some other healthy fat, and the type of meat (or not) that you would use, you're looking at maybe 600-800 calories for this type of meal.

Okay so it's Ramadan and for me I have to fast from sun rise to sun set. I literally only have time for two meals, I cannot fit any other meal! Sunset is at 7:15pm I eat my lunch then, and sunrise is at 4:15am and I eat my breakfast around then, with my sleeping pattern I cannot fit in a 3rd meal however I'm really scared if I eat below my range I'll lose a lot of muscles. I was wondering if anyone has suggestions of healthy meals that are high in calories yet not too much in quantity I do not want to overstuff myself I also do not want to eat below my range. Any suggestions will be highly appreciated !
