ABout six years ago, some stuff happened, life got pretty hard, and I found myself in a position where I was only able to eat maybe two or three times a week. During this time, I gained 100 lbs in just under a year.
Trying to get back into shape, I feel like getting the minimum number of calories per day is my biggest issue. Ever since then, I only eat once a day and don't get hungry. I've been doing a low-carb diet (under 50 g) but the hardest part for me is managing to actually eat 1800 calories a day.
Anybody have any suggestions of healthy items I can eat with a slightly higher calorie amount per serving? I have to struggle to eat 1200 per day.

I'm curious why you only eat once a day? I'd struggle to eat 1800 calories on a low CHO diet too.

After I got back to being able to eat regularly again, I had lost the need to. Before I started dieting and running, I would usually get to work, make myself some kind of sandwich, and I'd be good on food for the rest of the day.

Nuts are extremely calorie dense. Do you drink coffee? Maybe the bulletproof coffee recipe can help.
