Here are suggestions on ways to increase caloric intake from the book "What to Eat with IBD." It's written by a registered dietician who herself has Crohn's and was first dxed with UC. BTW, she says peanut butter is a healthy fat. She says the only not healthy fats she lists are heavy cream and butter, but if you don't have a risk for cardiovascular disease, she says eating some of those is okay (I don't know if I agree with her on that though):
- Peanut butter and other nut butters, guacamole; hummus; heavy cream added to soups, cereal or tea; flax seed oil added to protein shakes (or to anything else); butter on potatoes, bread or in hot cereal.
"The New Eating Right for a Bad Gut" lists these foods: flax and olive oils, avocado; Nutra/Shakes and Great Shakes
Can you eat yogurt? A 6 oz. serving of chocolate Brown Cow yogurt has 200 calories, and it's super tasty!
