High Calorie Foods for Good Health

By Parul Dube

High-calorie foods provide one with more energy and nutrition. There are a myriad of reasons why one would start consuming high-calorie foods


One cup of white rice contains around 200 calories, 44 grams of carbs and very little fat. It’s also a pocket-friendly and convenient high-calorie food source

Potatoes and Starches

Potatoes and other starchy foods like quinoa, oats, squash, winter root vegetables and others add calories and carbs to their diet

Whole Grain Bread

Whole grain bread is a good source of carbs and calories. They also contain vitamins, minerals and fibre, which provide their own unique set of advantages


It’s a good source of protein, carbs, calcium, calories, fats, vitamins and minerals. Studies have shown that children who drink the most milk easily achieve the suggested weight

Red Meats

They are also one of the best sources of dietary creatine, which is one of the best muscle-building supplements

Salmon and Oily Fish

Salmon and oily fish are also considered as good protein and healthy fat sources


Nuts are calorie-dense, and therefore, just a few handfuls per day can give you hundreds of calories and help gain weight healthily

Dried Fruit

Dried fruits are calorie-dense foods packed with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and fibre

Dark Chocolate

Compared to milk chocolate, dark chocolate has a high-calorie density. It also contains less sugar, more antioxidants, micronutrients and fibre


Eggs are a good source of calories, proteins, healthy fats and vitamin D. They also generally contain a little bit of every micronutrient necessary for  a healthy body


Grain-based cereals are high in calories, antioxidants and fibre. Out of all the different healthy cereals, oats are the best choice

High Calorie Fruits

Banana, Plum, Apricots, Dates, Mango are fruits with little water content. These fruits are full of fructose (fruit sugar)


Seeds like flax seeds, sesame seeds, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, etc., are high in calories. They are also rich in good unsaturated fats (PUFA and MUFA), which are calorie-dense


Consuming a moderate proportion of cheese every day can help in significant weight gain
