High calorie foods to prevent exercise/training associated weight loss

When I retired I stopped eating high calorie restaurant/cafeteria lunches and took my exercise addiction to another (not all that healthy) level. I started dropping from my target weight to being too slender. To maintain muscle in an old person an extra 1-2% body fat about the 30yo "ideal" is a good idea.

I asked friends, some with similar vices or serious athletic backgrounds, for advice on calorie sources. Here's the current list ...
  • Snickers bars
  • Chocolate bars
  • Whole fat organic Greek yogurt
  • Sports drinks
  • Peanut butter everything including peanut butter monster trail mix
  • Almond butter
  • Avocado things
  • Baby bel cheese, 
  • Nuts: macadamia, cashews, Tahini
  • Ice cream (cheap)
  • Peanut butter granola

I am so glad you're still posting. Came looking for the classic "The Net Is A Forest" post and thought I'd chime in and let you know you're still being read.

Thank you! I hope Google continues to keep Blogger going, but if not I'll migrate the domains to Wordpress.
