Hello everybody!

I've been fighting against a gut dysbiosis for about 4 years.

I am gluten free, and been reacting to all grains as well, even white rice, so I gave it up too.
"So let's eat tons of sweet potatoes." No... my stomach just can't digest it well.

Now, in a new treatment phase, with a new doctor, which sugested me to cut some of my carbs, like bananas and try to raise calories with fats. Mostly avocados, walnuts, flaxseeds and coconuts.

Here is the macros:

3100 calories
Carbs: 8,33 g/kg (50%)
Proteins: 1,12 g/kg (15%)
Fat: 2,34 g/kg (35%)

I'm a little affraid of raising the fats so much like this. Allthough its not a keto diet, it's very different from what I'm used to listen about diet.

I'd appreciate to hear some thought from you guys!

Thanks!

I am not going to comment on the change in the diet composition as I am not a medical professional.

I will comment on the 3100 calories.... I hope you are active enough that you are able to offset those calories throughout the day?

If your doctor is not a plant-based doctor then maybe look around and see if you can find one in your area.
