trick for calories on the zone?

is there anything i can eat that is zone friendly that packs alot of calories besides almonds or olive oil? i eat 4 meals a day of 7-8 blocks and about 5x fat and my metabolism is so high i cant keep the weight on, but i love how i feel and perform on the zone.my usual weight is 200 lbs eating on the lines of starting strength or power lifting type food but on zone i struggle to maintain 175lbs. i need the weight to compete in my style of gritty play in senior hockey

Peanut butter and other nut butters. Other nuts.

Ice cream is not Zone friendly, but if you have a big old ice cream protein shake with a scoop of peanut butter every day, you should be able to keep that weight on. Also, one cup of 1% milk is pretty much in the Zone. You could make a peanut-butter smoothie with milk and peanut butter. That would get you proportional amount of carbs and protein with the extra fat.

God, I wish I had your problem.
