Re: How do you keep the weight on with low carb diets ?.

I would recommend eating a balanced diet - not too much protein, not too much carbs, not too much fat. A little bit of everything, with a good variety of seasonal vegetables.

It's important that you enjoy the food you're eating, and that you eat when you're hungry - not just arbitrarily because you 'need' to get the calories.

In the past I used to log all the food I consumed on, pursuing an optimum diet that satisfied my daily nutritional requirements. This included counting calories, to the extent that I would stuff my face with additional food even if I wasn't hungry to ensure that I consumed the 'correct' amount of calories.

These days, I'm far more laid back about the whole thing. nutrition logging sites such as are very useful, however they can also be a little damaging, especially if you get too hung-up on every nutritional detail. Again, food is meant to be enjoyed - if you don't enjoy it, your body will not receive its nutritional benefit.

Finally, please remember the of the wise phrase 'You are what you eat'. Actually, a more accurate version would be 'You are what you digest' - meaning, it doesn't matter how many calories you put into your body if the food is not being properly digested and absorbed. My digestion and absorption aren't great (I'm also perhaps a little underweight for my height), however I believe things are steadily improving.

Wishing you all the best - take care.
