Calories for weight gain?
 
Hi guys, I'm pretty new to this site, and I was wondering if anyone had any tips for what kinds of calories I should be trying to eat.

I'm trying to gain weight, preferably in the form of fat.

Right now my average is about 45-37-13 carbs/fat/protein. (5% alcohol - yeah college!)

Is this unhealthy? (The high amount of fat is from the ungodly amounts of olive oil I consume...which is a healthy fat, or so I'm told) If so, how can I gain weight in a healthier way?

Other healthy fats are olives, avocados & nuts.

Why are you trying to gain fat? Unless your body fat percentage is at an unhealthy level(less than 10-12% for women) you should either gain muscle or leave your weight where it is.
