I know it is a struggle to gain weight for some as well as losing it for most.
Have you tried making a smoothie with coconut milk, with your protein powder, and add gound flax seeds (or any ground nut), and Chia seeds (for texture)?
I don't know what your situation is, but it is possible to add healthy calories in your day...

I am guessing that you are aware of supplements for "bulking up". They have the right mix of carbs/protein. I am also on a high protein seeker, and have been consuming mostly grilled chicken/beef and i buy fish once in a while (the local ranch-market here will clean it and fry it for me right there). You also get high protein from several vegetarian diets - beans, legumes, lentils etc. Make sure you read about nutrition, and figure your BMR/caloric requirements (which is what i did).

yes, but why are you asking 'if'? you have already inputted it incorrectly or you are thinking of doing that

bullet proof coffee
Drinking bullet proof coffee allows you to feel full without affecting the body's insulin levels. You are losing weight and not hungry. That's why it is useful for dieting.
