How to put on some weight while doing low carb/no nuts

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created March 20, 2013 at 6:08 PM

Hey everyone. I am trying to put on some weight. Which sounds easy, but I cannot stomach carbs, nuts/seeds, most fruits, and certain nightshades. I do pretty intense workouts 6-7 days a week for boxing. Does anyone have any suggestions to do this. My digestion system is pretty sluggish and I have been diagnoised with IBS-C and borderline chron's.

I'm not sure. Maybe winter squash like pumpkin? I think those are recommeneded on the SCD diet. Have you heard about this Chris Kresser story? A patient was basically wasting away and they kept restricting his allowed foods to try to fix digestion until he was left with like fish and broccoli. He left the care of the physician for a few months then came back and had gained liked 40 lbs. and was much healthier. They asked him what he did and the answer was pizza and beer, lol. He decided if he was going to die, he might as well enjoy it and have a good time.

Are there any types of carbs that are very very very delicate on the gut and not known to cause constipation?

I can't do starches they deem to cause the most issues.

Could you try eating the small amount you can tolerate and slowly increasing it over time to give your gut bacteria time to react?

coconut also causes some issues. Yes most carbs bother me, after eating so low carb for such a long time (4-5 years) it's hard to tolerate anything more then a small amount

Avocado. My two favorite things: guacamole and eggs baked inside an avocado half. Guac is pretty simple, and for the egg thing, just slice an avocado in half, remove the pit and a little bit of meat in the center, place an egg in each half, and bake at 425 for about 15 minutes or until desired level of doneness and dig in! (But top with bacon first. Portable heaven!) I've had as many as three whole avocados with six eggs for breakfast, but, admittedly, that was post-IF. On a similar note, you can never go wrong with bacon.

Fats are your friend. Just enough is one thing, but piling them on like there's no tomorrow will net you a gain.

Basically, you get a free pass on eating as much bacon as you want.

I'm an active triathlete. I eat one or two avocadoes per day. I cut an avocado in half, remove the pit, and eat the avocado with a spoon like pudding. It's an acquired taste, but super easy.

The other high energy food I eat are eggs. Can you tolorate macadamias?

I've been gaining weight by eating coconut oil (and making coconut bark with it... heat up oil- add honey, nuts, dried fruit, whatever... and freeze, Enjoy), and coconut cream. I've also been eating nuts... are there none you tolerate at all? Sometimes people have a reaction to a few kinds- not all...

Starches like sweet potatoes, bananas, squashes, pumpkin... are also your friend.

Do all carbs bother you? If so, that basically leaves fat as a source of increased calories. Maybe some coconut "bark" (melt coconut oil, mix with cocoa powder, add flavorings), heavy cream, coconut milk, etc.
