Do you mind sharing what you eat to reach your calorie goal? I have trouble eating enough calories. Since I have such a weak digestion I only eat light things that are easier to digest and mostly they're all low calorie but I need to get more calories in my body and idk how to do that at this point

Have you heard of barley water? I keep hearing that it is good for digestion. Maybe you have tried it

This is a snapshot of my cron-o-meter

with the details of what I ate on Saturday.

 

I never tried barley water and this is the first time I learn about it. Thanks for sharing.

Note that the yam I ate is not a sweet potato. It is African yam which is not sweet at all.

Great, thanks! So yams are ok to eat? They're not like sweet potatoes at all?

And could I buy any kind of yam or does it have to be a particular one?

Szb, I don't know what's right or wrong. I just tell you what I am trying. I have not recovered yet!

Check the wikipedia link that I posted before to get an idea of the yams I am trying. These are not sweet and they don't look like potatos.

Excuse me for butting in, but have you guys tried intermittent fasting? One simple way to do it is skipping breakfast, so that you have a 16-hour fast. A short fast is always beneficial for any digestive problem.

I've actually fasted because of Ramadan so from sun up to sun down, and that was only a couple of days during July, but it didn't really help me much.

Fasting didn't help me either. And I read that fasting and ketosis may worsen fungal overgrowth.
