But, it's not that easy. I never thought I would say those words :laugh:

I need to gain about 15 pounds. Here's my limitations though- no meat, low fat, low salt, diet restricted even more from Coumadin. Protein powders either contain vitamin K or don't list it, and I won't take the chance.

I've been eating frozen yogurt, pizza, pasta, etc, but it's hard to gain weight without junk food. Who'd a thunk it.

Steak, potatoes, beans, red wine, and beer have always helped me gain weight. :laugh:

If you do not like steak, then I recommend bacon or deer roast. :)

Pizza is the wrong thing to eat if you want low fat and low salt.

Pasta with olive oil and garlic.

Pasta dishes heavy in olive oil. salads with an olive oil dressing along with higher fat foods like avocado

I'll get you some rcipes when I get home tonight.

I'll fatten you up but good :wink:

Pizza has a fair amount of sodium and a bit of fat.

Think about the natural peanut butter. No salt or sugar added.

An extra cup or two of yogurt every day. Maybe a little dark chocolate? Some protein bars might work. Read the labels.

I had to eat extra when I was running marathons.

Allergic to peanuts. Thinking about cashew butter.

Protein bars is a good idea, as long as they don't have peanuts.

Cranberries are also out on Coumadin.

BTW, I'm only eating pizza once a week.

G we don't eat meat or chicken either. You can go with a ton of pasta and bread, spicy cheese, refried beans. There is quite a bit you can do to gain weight without meat. If you want I can get you some more info from my wife who is a vegitarian for 35 years and quite the cook. She knows her food really well.

Tackle each problem, trample it, and leave it behind in the wake of your pursuits. Overcome your problems, leave them to oblivion. You are alive, roll with it. Defy your problems if only on spite alone. Beat your problems if only to piss off your enemies. Overcome your challenges and welcome new ones in hardy iron jaw defiance.

Live brother and fight. You don't have that choice, it is a moot point. You are going to live and you are going to fight. Becuase you are a hard arse, you were born to fight..

Cheese, which I love, is , limited because of the fat content. I've been eating beans, of course. Vegetarian refired beans are not real high in calories. If you have a favorite veggie dish, send it along!

there are three or four different nut "butters" out there that are damn tasty. go to the hippy store and they should have the healthier stuff.

Ask your doc if you can have Iceberg lettuce. I was on Warfarin for six months and was able to eat cauliflower, iceberg lettuce and carrots.

Dude, you are so fuzzed.




The healthiest oil for your diet low in Vitamin K is... Peanut oil :laugh:

I'll go off this chart and adjust the recipes for your needs as a grass eater.

Too damn bad Tuna is so high in vitamin K :sad:

I eat tuna in oil five days per week. It is the good italian stuff in jars, not the shatty processed american stuff.

This site gives me all I need to fatten you up.

Any special foods you like or dislike?

Twenty years ago, I started learning about food. At the time I wanted to be a chef, but things changed.
However, my grandfather had several massive heart attacks and I learned how to cook for him. He had the same restrictions as you, he just wasn't a lawn eater like you.

You may want to add free range chicken or turkey to your diet as a temporary thing. I know you do not do meat, but it is the best way to gain weight.

Either way, I will get you some good stuff to eat :oh yea:

I took quite a few of nutrition classes in college, and worked in restaurants for years. I can cook pretty well. Send the recipes.
I'll check the site out.

Vegetarian refried beans
cheddar cheese shredded
can of enchilada sauce
(shrimp)don't know if you eat this
raw or sauteed onions
FLOUR tortillas.

you don't need much cheese, just enough for flavor and some goo.
the sauce provides the flavor as do the onions. sauteed adds more fat(good fat with sunflower oil)

Ahh, more of a vegan than a vegetarian then. OK, you have to be difficult, but I can manage. My dad went totally meatless for a year and I made him all sorts of things.

Mushrooms are fantastic and super low in vitamin K.


I can do great things with mushrooms

No shrimp, but it sounds like what I ate for dinner a couple of nights ago-yummy.

I was always naturally thin. Then after getting too thin due to a medical condition, I was told a good 15-20 lbs overweight was a good idea. I sometimes have to go a week without any food.

What I learned about this is what we basically do is change our metabolism, basically Krebs cycle, which not only changes how we process certain foods like starches or fats but how it converts it to energy. Adding and losing weight, my metabolism became like a roller coaster constantly needing for me to adjust diet and exercise. For example, I'm too heavy right now by about 10-15 lbs. Instead of drastic measure like dieting hard, I've learned slowly is better because it limits the roller coaster.
