how to gain weight on paleo?
I am mexican, 33 years old, used to eat lots of fast carbs, lots of bread, pasta, rice, and saturated fat of the mexican traditional food, suffered hypertension 140/110, fatigue, anxiety due to reactive hypoglicemia, I suffered severe bloating, belching, gases and chest pain. I used to exercise every day but I ended up crashed due to low glucose levels. I tried DASH diet for 6 months but it did not work.
I was diagnosed with insulin resistance.
I went paleo on February 2011, and now my BP is 120/80, I have no gastric problems, and consider all issues solved.
I was 60 kilos in January but now I am 52 kilos and my body fat % is 8.3. All I can add is I probably have celiac disease but I tolerate milk and some low fat dairy products. I eat 4 to 5 times a day, protein in every meal, lots of lean meat, salmon, white fish, chichen breast, lots of fruits and vegetables. Totally gave up rice, bread, pasta, candy, sugar, etc.
Besides training (weight lifiting) is there a proven way to gain weihgt with nutrition? Do not forget I must keep insulin sensitivity and avoid sudden increases in blood glucose...
thank you all...
