Page 1 of 8

Most of us are continuously looking to reduce our calorie intake in order to appear slender and fit, but what are the best foods for gaining weight? People with a high metabolism and naturally slim bodies often feel pressured to increase their body mass in order to prevent diseases and appear healthier. However, there’s only so much fast food you can eat before you start feeling heavy and unhealthy. That’s why we’ve compiled this list of ingredients and food groups that will help you gain weight without cramping your vitality.


Much like the top 5 diets that help you lose weight, which we covered in an article last week, the foods on this list don’t require a major alteration to your daily eating habits. Instead, incorporating these elements into your routine can result in a scale that slowly compresses more over time, as your greater body mass steps on onto it.

As with all dietary adjustments, it’s important to emphasize the fact that long-lasting results take time to achieve. Therefore it’s best to indulge in these foods for at least a month before tossing your resolve out the window. Let’s take a look at the best foods for gaining weight and how you can incorporate them into your diet.

This high-protein and high-fat product is not only the Achilles heel of many French chefs, but also provides you with a flavourful edge to most vegetarian dishes. Cheese contains high calcium values, as it is derived from milk, but its fat percentage varies according to the time of curation and type of animal milk. For example, parmesan cheese is considered one of the most fattening cheeses, as it is curated for an extended amount of time, giving it that firm structure.

The dietary path to a bigger you has only just begun. Keep reading for the seven best foods to gain weight, and get eating.
