Okay, this is like my third topic in dietary this week, because I'm really getting desperate. I really need to gain weight because right now my weight is very dangerous, but I can't tolerate a thing. I tried the specific carb diet, but it just made things worse because it meant more fat. I'm doing a 3-food-only elimination diet right now, but the diarrhea and pain continue, though it's gotten a little better just because I've eliminated all sources of fat too. In the past I've had bad experience with high calorie meal replacement drinks. I think all that fat (my worst trigger) really set me off. The only ones I can sort of tolerate are the clear juice supplements, which can't give full nutrition. I came across Absorb Plus on the internet. It was clearly designed to be very digestible, with high calories but no fat, which is exactly what I need. And it actually targeted not just people with IBD, but also people with IBS. It's very expensive though - $60 a tub - so I want to know before I try it if anyone had any luck with these drinks? Or was anyone able to create their own easily digested, high calorie complete meal replacer (w/o unbroken down dairy or soy)? I was thinking maybe rice milk with rice protein and a banana or something like that might work...
