But be aware that fats are approximately twice the calories per gram.  Carbs and proteins are ~4 calories per gram, whereas fats are around 8.  Anything you can do to get calories from fats will improve your hope of carrying enough caloric content without increasing weight or bulk.  Obvious examples being nuts, seeds and nut butters. 

HAH!  THAT'S why I needed to buy the two large jars of Nutella I saw at Costco this weekend!

It would be better if they left out the sugar and skim milk.  And friendly to the lactose-intolerant among us too.
