Foods That Make You Gain Weight

Are there some foods that contribute to weight gain more than others?

No matter where the calories come from, consuming more than you burn will eventually cause you to gain weight. Some foods are easier to overeat, however. High-energy-density foods, those that have a low fiber or water content, take up relatively little stomach space, so you may find yourself consuming greater quantities, says Dr. Cheskin. In this category: white pasta, meats, cheese and cookies. Since some of these foods provide other nutrients, you needn't purge them from your pantry. Instead, try to concentrate on eating more low-energy-dense foods (fruits, vegetables, broth-based soups, salads and whole-grain cereals with low-fat milk) and you'll fill up on fewer calories, says Rolls.
