I personally lost weight and then gained weight over the time on the diet. I’d recommend trying out teff and baking with it. You can make kefir cheese, and a kefir teff bread if you are looking for something that will help you gain weight.
If you increased the surface area of your gut by healing it, it should absorb more food over time.
If you chewed your food more, this will increase the surface area of the food you eat allowing for better absorption. Try out chewing your food 30+ times per each bite.
Consider making smoothies. Make them 2-3 times per day.
The roasted nuts and almond butter likely can set back your progress because if basically converts the nuts into bad saturated fat. I would stick to them raw if possible…it also has better nutritional properties raw… I’d replace quinoa with rice; either black, red, or wild rice.
Consider eating meat such as chicken and fish. Fish has a ton of health benefits.
