Advice Needed For Weight Gain With Diet Restrictions

Lean protein (eg turkey, chicken, fish, bison), brown rice and cooked vegetables are going to be staples for any body builder (forgot to add that you need to have healthy fats in your diet too, so avacado, olive oil, flaxseed, coconut oil, NUTS/nutbutter). I would try to eat 6-8 small meals throughout the day. Carnivor shots are made from meat and have 50 g of protein per shot. I don't know if it is gluten free though. You should contact the manufacturer to find out. There are some vegan gluten-free protein powders out there on the market that you should be able to use as well, but they usually don't have as much protein as a whey powder would. Hemp protein, pea protein may be good options for you. In order to put on size you have to not only be absorbing the nutrients you take in but you also need to be in a caloric surplus. You need to calculate your TDEE+ ~10% to gain/bulk.
