3 Fruits High in Calories that Could Make You Add Weight

For some people, gaining weight or building muscle can be challenging. Though fruits aren’t usually the first group of foods that comes to mind when trying to bulk up, several types of fruits can provide the extra calories your body needs to gain weight. What’s more, they pack important vitamins and minerals to support your health. Fruits are the storehouses of all nature’s love that it has bestowed on us, in the form of all kinds of essential nutrients, minerals, and vitamins, which are important for the growth and health of our body. Not all fruits have the same kind or amount of sugars and nutrients, with some fruits packing in more calories than the others. While some fruits are very high in fiber and water content, others are richer in natural sugars, fat, and carbohydrates.

Bananas

Bananas are an excellent choice if you’re looking to gain weight. They’re not only nutritious but also a great source of carbs and calories. One medium-sized (118-gram) banana contains the following nutrients; bananas are a convenient on-the-go snack and can be added to oatmeal or smoothies made with other high-calorie ingredients, such as nut butter or full-fat yogurt to help you gain weight.

Mangoes

One cup of chopped mango pulp has about 100 calories, so you must be careful about eating too much of it. But it’s certainly a high energy-boosting food and can be consumed in the form of milkshakes and smoothies, as well as yogurts and ice-creams. It also has high levels of fiber, prectin, and Vitamin C.

Blueberries

Berries are perhaps the healthiest fruits and blueberries have the highest amount of calories, among the berries. Blueberries are rich in antioxidants and are great for the heart, the brain, the immune system, the eyes, and the blood. One cup of blueberries contains as many as 85 calories. They taste great in desserts, yogurts, smoothies and shakes, and even in salads and diet snacks.
