Gaining Weight Dealing With Malabsorption Issues
Hello I have been using cronometer for nearly 2 months now and im loving it, it really has opened my eyes to my nutrient deficiencies and in general how much I eat.
I have alot of malabsorption issues the cause is yet to be determined so I am using cronometer as a day planner, symptom tracker and a tool to help me manage and eventually start to increase my weight.
I have an ok grasp of when to weigh food, guestimate a portion from a pan of food like stew etc
but there is a kind of wall I have encountered, as I have the malabsorption problems I am having vegetable juices and I am trying to start with vegetable powders but for obvious reasons most foods are in the whole form and its rare to find a powder or juice.
I believe it is skewing my diary probably not by much I know but it somthing to consider, im removing the fibre from the juices and the powders the water content, though the latter as im making my own powders(dehydrator) it is easier to estimate the vegetable content; but the juices I don't know what im losing apart from the obvious fibre.
Anyways I am writing to see if anyone has any tips or if there is anyone using it for the same reason as me, seems most are using it to lose weight which I would despair if I was doing so again haha
