Well, for the past few weeks ive been eating 2750 calories a day with more than enough protein. It seems that my increase of LBM is forcing me to eat more if I want to gain weight. As a result, im thinking of drinking 2 percent milk in place of skim (I drink a litre of milk a day almost so this should have a significant impact on myself). As well, there are these cheesestrings that contain 9 grams of protein as well a significant amount of calories.
What other options are there in terms of getting a higher calorie intake (rather than just eating more, id like to know what to eat)?

So more fat?
Why is it so much more important to get my energy from fat rather than carbs?

Because EFAs are essential to your every day health and they are easy calories. You asked about calories, not energy sources.

Uh, calories are units of energy. 1 calorie= 4.185 joules, or the amount of energy it takes to heat 1g of water by 1 degree celcius.

High calorie sources=high energy sources.

It isn't more important. As long as you get your minimums, it doesn't matter where the rest comes from. Fats, however, tend to be easy to wat lots of and are very calorie dense foods. Ex 1 cup penuts = ~800 calories.

High calorie sources=high energy sources.I am fully aware of what calories are. Your original question had nothing to do what source those calories should come from. But EFAs are essential (every single day) and upping them is not only a good idea, but it's easy calories.
