Protein intake should be limited, because proteolysis can produce many wastes, which will increase the burden of kidneys. But you can choose some high quality protein, such as milk and egg white, which produce few wastes.

Carbohydrates are recommended to provide calories, like sugar, jam, jelly, hard candy, honey and syrup.

Other good sources of calories come from fats such as soft margarine, and oils like canola or olive oil, which are low in saturated fat and have no cholesterol.

If you have diabetes and need to gain weight, it may be best for you to increase your calories from starches and vegetable fats.
