    17 years weight 72 kg is an ectomorfo.a as I understand someone like me who has fast fast metabolism must take many calories throughout the day to not lose muscle mass. now I have done the calculations of the calories in the foods I eat during the day but unfortunately I never get the calories needed. What are the foods that have many calories but do not hurt our body?

    Food doesn't hurt your body mate :lol:

    You either don't eat enough calories or you don't.

    What do you eat on a typical day?

    I eat a lot more protein Instead of eating a lot of carbohydrates and calories

    No such thing as a particular food that hurts your health - the most damaging thing you can do to your health from any food (or foods) is overeat for a long time and gain a lot of body fat. There are some foods that, when in a consistent calorie excess like this, can speed up the health issues - vast amounts of simple sugars or vast amounts of long chain saturated fats, but no food specifically a problem. If you genuinely need a lot of calories to get into a calorie excess (most people who think they have a fast metabolism actually don't, they just massively overestimate what they eat or massively underestimate their activity level) then eat as balanced a diet as you can that gets you to the calorie target you need.

    Thats not enough food for anyone by the sounds of it.

    So 3 rusks + jam

    200g cooked weight of pasta with?

    1 chicken breast for dinner with?

    How many sandwiches and when?

    You basically answered with baby food and one chicken pasta meal.

    Certainly looks more like a case of undereating than a fast metabolism.

    Start at at least 14kcals per 1lb bodyweight, and aim to get at least 30% of your total kcals from protein. If your protein intake is high enough, you don't need a massive amount of extra energy above your maintenance to gain muscle.
