Diet with no Colon

I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in April 2007 (actually had to go on my honeymoon un-diagnosed which was miserable at times) had my colon removed, after years of drugs and prednisone, in 2009 and J-pouch surgery just 2 months after.. I went to a dietitian afterward and she was totally useless. I have gotten back serious in the gym in the past year but struggle with what I should eat to get my muscle mass up and body fat down.. I am sure not having a colon affects how the body uptakes protein and other nutrients so I was hoping there was someone that could help me. I am pretty much at a base starting point so any direction would be helpful and appreciated. I have used Optimum Nutrition Platinum Hydro Whey without issue, although the strawberry flavor didn't set well with me.

    Thanks - I prefer to advise on the board via PM so others can learn from my advice.
     
    I take it when you had your colon removed you had a tempoary bag fitted and now that's been reversed and there's no bag?
     
    How many times of day do you poo and what are they like?
     
    Do you suffer with any symptoms now?
     
    What's a typical day's current diet like?

    Thanks James.. you are right... i had the bag for about 2 months and had it reversed and now I have a J-pouch.
     
    really depends on what I eat but typically 6 times; mainly in the afternoon and at night.
     
    no symptoms at all
     
    right now I start the morning with a protein shake then go to the gym around 630 am. After my workout I either have another protein shake (if I am really busy at work) or have 3 eggs scrambled, smoked sausage and shredded potatoes. Lunch is typically a sandwich or burger of some sort. Dinner is whatever the wife makes. She eats gluten free, Organic and grass fed only meats. I know this is pretty vague but I really dont know the protein/carb/fat mix.. I try to focus on high protein and as few carbs as possible but like I said; I am pretty much at ground zero in terms of diet.
     
    I can eat nuts and mushrooms in very small amounts although I dont digest mushrooms so I dont really know the point in eating them. I dont really have any negative sides to foods. Spicy does sometimes hurt and I do stay away from a lot of dairy as it tends to cause gas which is an unpleasant feeling. 
     
    I think I am supposed to eat 6 meals a day but sometimes it is nearly impossible to do depending on how many meetings I have in a day.
     
    I am not taking any supplements at the moment.

    OK, I'm assuming you want to gain some lean mass weight.
     
    Try something like this:
     
    Wake
    30g whey protein isolate in water
    Porridge - oats + skimmed milk + sugar
    2 whole eggs
    Glass fresh fruit juice
    Vit/min supplement
     
    Mid morning
    30g whey protein isolate in water
    Item fruit
     
    Lunch
    White basmati rice
    Chicken / fish
    Salad
    Low fat probiotic yoghurt
     
    Mid afternoon
    30g whey protein isolate in water
    Item fruit
     
    Immediately post workout
    50g whey protein isolate + 20g carb powder in water
     
    Main meal - 45 mins later
    Large sweat potato
    Lean meat / oily fish
    Veg
    Low fat probiotic yoghurt
     
    Bedtime
    Low fat, natural probiotic yoghurt + scoop protein powder
    Oil blend - tbsp
     
    That's basic and should cover everything

    when you say Vit/Min supplement do you mean multi-vitamin?
     
    50g of Protein?... didnt know the body could process that much at one time.. What are your thoughts on workout supplements like BCAA, Creatine, NO2, etc... for me this is a lot of fluid intake and passes through really quick.
     
    Are there any preferred protein RTD's?

    No, i mean a multi-vitamin and mineral supplement. You should have this as you'll not be absorbing as much of some micronutrients as people with a colon

    Your body can 'process' any amount.
     
    BCAA could have its place for you, but it's not fundimental.
     
    With your condition, I'd avoid creatine and some pre-workout ingredients.

    Just get a good whey protein isolate
