Eat fat and carbs. Fried plantains or sweet potatoes. Poach fruit in cream. Broil cheese over vegetables. Being in ketosis will work against weight gain.

I need the calories but I am sensitive to some of the more tastier fats, like coconut, avocado, and nuts. Is there a way I could sneak in more tallow in a tastier connotation? Maybe a sauce or something, where I can't taste it directly?

Get more physical activity rather than cutting more calories. I don't see any reason (save medical emergencies) that an adult should go below 1,200 calories per day.

I suspect you aren't eating enough. 85g of fat contains only 765 calories. If you're eating 50g of protein (1g/kg), that's only 965 calories. Given your apparently active lifestyle, you are either eating a lot of carbs or you're not eating... (more)
