As the topic says, I'm a strict (though not vegan) vegetarian trying to keep weight on and energy up now that decent weather is here and I've rounded up to 150 miles a week on the way to more, an annual challenge this time of year. I'm 5'10", 150 and I just can't seem to eat enough. I would eat more dense foods like cheese and milk, or meat for that matter, but I just don't care for them, and I also have very little taste for processed foods or supplements generally so putting whey powder in a smoothie, for example, doesn't really work. I do all the common sense stuff like adding extra olive oil to pasta, eating lots of starchy foods, taking second servings, snacking liberally on nuts and avocado, eating several meals a day and so forth but my trousers keep getting bigger. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone on the forum has found any good strategies for dealing with such an issue.
