Foods high in calories

Unless my scale was broken, I need to put on a minimum of 10 pounds, just to get to the low-normal weight I should be in.
I have been losing weight over the past year without trying (I basically sit on my butt all day). I intend on getting that checked with a doctor soon just to rule out that it's not any physical problem. My guess is that it's thanks to my anxiety -- I really struggle to eat when I am anxious or sad, and I had at least a week recently where I definitely under-ate every day.

Anyway, mention foods high in calories. Right now I can think of nuts, nut butter, seeds, dates, avocados - I hate avocados, though, so not eating them, oils - I will probably start cooking my veggie burgers in some oil instead of grilling them...

Mention more that you can think of, please.

Yeah... I know about those foods obviously (should have probably mentioned them in the post), but honestly not a fan of cakes and ice creams and deep fried foods. Would definitely make gaining weight a lot easier. Guess I will just have to eat more volume.

I will try the banana and dates shake. Thanks!

Dried fruits are pretty calorie-dense. 1 cup of raisins contains almost 500 calories: https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q...cup+of+raisins

I know you mentioned disliking avocados, but you could blend them up into a protein shake! Chocolate covers up the taste pretty well. I've even made a "pudding" out of avocado, cocoa powder, almond milk, dates, and vanilla extract. It's not like, amazing, but it could maybe add fats to your diet without the avocado taste. I love avocados, though, so I'm not a great resource to confirm that you actually cannot taste it Adding almond butter/other nut butters to a protein shake is also a tasty option to add more fats/calories.

Other than that, I would definitely snack on nuts/nut butters, hummus, etc. I can relate to the anxiety-induced loss of appetite, I'm so sorry you have to deal with that!
