Healthy Food to Gain Weight for Women

1. Dried Fruit

Dried fruits are a convenient way to add more calories to your diet with less effort than eating the same amount of fresh fruit would need.

Dried Fruit

Dried apricots, plums, berries, and mangoes are all delicious and healthy alternatives to sugary dried fruit mixes.

2. Avocados

Avocados are rich in vitamin E, fiber, and unsaturated fat. Avocados are healthful, calorie-rich, and weight-gain-friendly.


Avocado slices provide texture, flavor, nutrition, and calories to crackers, breads, and wraps. Avocados add calories to low-calorie items like salads.

3. Juices, Smoothies And Purees

Fluids are easier to drink and less likely to make you feel full when your appetite is low. McKinley Health Center encourages drinking high-calorie drinks to build weight.

Juices, Smoothies And Purees

Juices, smoothies, and purees are calorically dense like dried fruit. 8 ounces of fruit juice adds 120 calories to a diet Coke or water.

4. Ultra-Sweet Fruits

Bananas, pineapples, mangoes, and coconuts are sweet. One medium-sized banana has 105 calories, approximately twice as much as one cup of cubed melon.

Ultra-Sweet Fruits

Avoid fruits with added sugars, minerals, or fiber. Excessive added sugars can cause weight gain and health problems.
