Anyone Know How I Can Put Weight On?

Recommended Posts

I had trouble gaining weight. I have gained 5-7 lbs since March. I needed supplements for the mal-absosrption. I take D3, ultra flora probiotic, fish oil and B12. I eat mostly a whole foods diet.

I splurge on "gourmet" ingredients once in a while(free of all the things I need to avoid). I figure it balances out all with all the cheap cabbage, zucchini etc. that I eat and all the meals cooked from scratch at home. I bought a bottle of lemon olive oil while on vacation, that cost as much or more than a bottle of good wine, but it was something different for a change and convenient flavor. I'll get the rosemary olive oil to enjoy next time. If you didn't have the problem with eggs I could recommend a brand of mayo that's mustard-free. Took me a while to find one without soy and mustard! Bit pricey, but again, I indulge myself every once in a while. I can't afford to use these as my staples, but savor them while I have them.

However, I suspect you are blaming various food intolerances or digestive problems, without considering what causes your digestive problems. Until you determine why your digestive system is so challenged, worrying about weight gain is overlooking the cause of that symptom.

I want to echo this sentiment. Depression, anxiety, and chronic stress can all cause digestive issues all on their own - ones that may mimic "food intolerances". In fact, if almost all foods give you problems, I wouldn't be looking for specific foods, but other things that are a constant instead. Chronic stress on the body (be it emotional, psychological, or physical) affect hormone and chemical production throughout the body, and can make digestion much slower and less functional.

(Yes, you can "think yourself sick". It's not the same as saying it's in your head, but rather recognizing that non-digestive problems can cause digestive problems.)
