theres not much there in the way of carbs. Why noy some pasta, potatos and the like. more vegies too and some milk. Olive oil has alot of caloeies too. You can put that on anything. I love the stuff..

Maybe:
- switch from skim milk to 2% milk ( gives you aprox 150 cals per cup)
- some more egg whites, wouldn't hurt ( aprox 16 cals each)
- Add some hamburger - XL, L or regular
- Add some more chicken ( 1 chicken breast might only be 200 cals)
- Add some rice/potatoe or pasta (these are the cheapest cals you can get ie: 1 pak of Mr.Noodle = aprox 400 cals for only .50c)
- You could always put 2 scooops of whey into your shake

If you do this it could give you as many calories as you want , depending on how much food you take in.

totaly agree. I dont' see any greens.. and olive oil is one of the best things you can have in a diet. filled with poly and mono fats. and about 120 cals in only 1 TBSP.

I thought vegies where " free cals " meaning it sure does take alot of veg to get even 100 cals.
Not saying they shouldn't be in your diet, but I wouldn't count on them to raise your calories

I think most vegies are only 20- 50 cal. per cup, but i guess even that adds up when you get some in all your whole food meals.

a good way to get in extra protien without using too many shakes, is take in some BCAA's with each meal. I would throw in 12g of BCAA into some CR lemonade and throw that down with each whole food meal.

do that 4 times a day, and you add a quality 192 cals of protien to your diet.
