Seeds, nuts and whole grain sugar free bread are good ways to get fiber and other nutrients in. Report
I don't do smoothies or protein bars Report
I am on a low cholesterol diet so adding more dairy, eggs or meat products to my diet is really not an option. I know that there are a lot of folks that are on a very limited income, as am I and those supplemental drinks can be quite expensive. Adding extra sugar or honey to foods seems sort of counter productive since we are trying to eat healthier and limit our added sugars. There are some great suggestions if you do not have any other health issues or financial restraints. Report
I sometimes have trouble meeting my calorie requirements at the end of the month because I am on a limited income. I do find it discouraging that this article is not vegan or vegetarian oriented. I do not drink diary milk and I do not eat egg yolks because I am on a low cholesterol diet. I do take medication for that as well. I guess this article is good for younger people or those on a main stream diet. I am used to being an outsider my whole life, however, and am pretty good at relying on my own initiative and resources when I have to--I love SP but I am on my own food journey. Report

If you are not satisfied, you will quit any plan you are on! Semi starvation does not last. Eat more, your brain runs on Glucose only. Otherwise you act like a witch, no body wants a witch around them, even if you are slim!! Report
Getting enough calories has never been my problem. Report

Yes, I also noticed a lot of sugar suggestions lurking in there! Although I eat a lot of fruit, I think adding more sugar into my diet would be a backwards step.. After all, I didn't get overweight by eating fruit lol!!! Report
Interesting. Report
Some good tips but, seriously, adding extra sugar to our diets is horrible advice. This article needs to be updated to 2017 health standards. Sugar causes a host of health problems. Add healthy calories, not junk calories. Report

See a real, live, dietitian if you honestly have problems with this....... Report
This is my biggest problem. Thanks for this article, very helpful. Report
Best. Problem. Ever. Report
I just wanted to update my comment, as I did not see the second page!!! I do like this list and it is helpful. Thank you for sharing. Report
It would be helpful for this article to have more ideas. I recently had a baby and I currently breastfeed. I had a tough time gaining weight while pregnant and had to resort to high calorie treats and now that I am breastfeeding, it is tougher than ever. My appetite is back to my pre-pregnancy appetite (I normally ate nutritious food that are lower calorie) and I have difficulty eating enough for the two of us. My blood sugar frequently drops due to not enough calories, even though I'm not hungry. Report
