Keto Paleo and Nut Free - How to get enough calories

Hey everyone! I've recently started a keto, paleo, and nut free diet and am finding it increasingly difficult to get enough calories in throughout the day. I often find myself getting extremely full at meals and capping calories around 1300/1400 at the most. Prior to this diet, I struggled to even limit myself between 1600 - 1800 calories and often went overboard, and way overboard on days that I exercised. For some background info, I'm 5'5, 21, 140 and looking to lose those last 10 pounds. I'm concerned about the low calorie intake because I have a history of bulemia and restricting calories. I don't want to starve and deprive my body all over again, even though keto leaves me feeling extremely full. 

Through the quick run through that I've read, it seems as though the general answer to upping one's calorie intake is incresing the amount of fat you cook in. I'm hopefully looking for recommendations other than this one, most especially because 1) I can't stomach ghee at all, 2) I'm already cooking my food in one/two table spoons of paleo friendly cooking oils and can't image doing more than that

Eat calorie dense foods such as fatty fish and mollusks cooked or packed in oil.
