Want to bulk up need advice
« on: September 14, 2019, 03:49:09 PM »
Guys I've just joined the gym and want to put on more weight as I'm too skinny at the moment. Do any of you have any advice on how to bulk up without including the brain fog giving foods.

Thanks

they sell paleo protein shakes. There are also veggie shakes, you can look at their ingredients to see if they are okay. If you have the money and just eat a lot of the food allowed,you should bulk up nicely. The foods are pretty lean and mostly protein. Dont forget to eat alot of the carbs and fats allowed.

according to my friend who is into lifting, all you need is complex carbs to replace the loss of grains.  your diet has to be mostly carbs though(about50%), you need good percent(20) of good fats and the rest protein.  Whey will be guarantee you are getting enough protein. Whey is milk and milk is one of the culprits in aip.
You don't have problem with milk?

Avoid whey and dairy... At start it works but eventually you get inflammed gut/intenstines and more brainfog. I wouldn't take plant proteins because most aren't digestible ( doesn't matter what companies tell you) and have a poor amino acid profile.

It's better to eat more , probably fish maybe raw beef and raw eggs. Without carbs you can easily gain weight as well as long you add lots of fats like butter

Whey isolate (the more broken down version of whey) seems to give me no brain fog and no digestion issues, I'm trying to persist and eat more eggs but they keep giving me brain fog especially and when I cook them more like scrambled the brain fog isn't as bad as lets say fried or raw.

If inflammation theory works, you need to controle it.

Proteins and good fats reduce inflammation.
Saturated fats and simple carbs increase inflammation.

And even to block white cells release (digestive leukocytosis), you should start meal with raw vegetables (10% is enough)
