Carbohydrates are a component of food that supplies energy through calories to the body. The energy value of digestible carbohydrates is four calories per gram. Along with proteins and fats, carbohydrates are one of the three macronutrients that your body needs to gain weight.

For example, half a medium banana has about 55 calories and 1.5 grams of fiber. Moreover, three large will add more than 350 extra calories to diet. Yes, we know a banana is an herb, most people still consider them to be a fruit.

Bananas are often one of the fruits that we resort to when we are trying to gain weight. They are high in good carbohydrates and may help you gain weight when consumed in certain ways. In addition, bananas are fairly high in sugar. Moreover, this can turn to body fat more quickly than other nutrients.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, a medium baked potato with flesh and skin has about 160 calories. A whole avocado has about 320, making it one of the most calorie-rich choices. They boast an impressive nutrient profile. Plus, they’re high in calories and healthy fats, making them an excellent choice for people looking to gain weight.
