Top 4 High Calorie Foods For Weight Loss

High calorie foods are often thought of as not healthy. But, on the contrary, foods rich in calories can still be a part of a healthy diet and can also help lose weight.

Here are 4 foods that are proven to be essentially helpful for your weight loss journey. Different foods go through different metabolic pathways, further resulting in various effects on the bodily functions, which may include hunger, hormones and fat burning process.


It is imperative to wisely choose the amount of type of calories you eat that may help in shedding kilos. The body needs healthy fats to rejuvenate and replenish, refuel, recover and above all burn more calories in order to lose weight. Hence, include these high calorie foods in order to shed those extra kilos.

  1. Avocados:

    Avocados, also called the 'butter fruit' are packed with potassium and mono-unsaturated fats apart from calories. Along with fibre, these fats increase satiety and decease cravings throughout the day. Include avocados in the breakfast or during the day to stave off hunger pangs.
  2. Egg yolks:

    This might be surprising but egg yolks are the real heroes that will help you lose weight. A quick bread and omelette make for an amazing breakfast keeping us fuller for longer. But Egg yolks contain vitamin A, B-vitamins, K2 and choline which help support metabolic functions and thyroid health. A healthy metabolism and thyroid function are crucial for weight loss.
  3. Full fat dairy:

    People who consume high-fat dairy have lower rates of obesity than those who consume low fat dairy, but it may depend on various factors. Milk contains a fatty acid called conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which is believed to induce weight loss. Moreover, extra fat from full fat dairy foods like full fat Greek yogurt increases satiety.
  4. Nuts:

    A handful of nuts have more than just calories. They are loaded with protein, fibre and mono- and poly- unsaturated fats, which work to make you feel satisfied and fuller longer.
