So after a long break from solid strength training, it's time to restart.

Over the past few years, I've been:
A) repairing leaky gut syndrome
B) finding out about and dealing with Celiac's
C) getting over a killer case of patellar tendonitis/osis and
D) working a job that's 90% plus travel

I just started a new position whereby I'll be cut down to about 50% travel. The travel poses its own set of challenges (mainly finding equipment and maintaining proper nutrition). But I've been able to work through it in the past, so I'm not too worried.

Training about to be started:
Linear progression a la the SS model. My two main goals are solid strength and mass gain.

Current stats:
175 lbs
12% BF

I think I'm fairly skinny for 6'3", definitely looking to put on serious weight. I don't really care about six pack abs or the fat gain that will come with the mass gain regimen. I'm definitely a hard gainer and have the metabolism of a hummingbird, so serious eating is in order.
Additionally I do have issues with food causing inflammatory responses. Gluten, Garlic and Dairy are the big three. There are some other minor ones, but nothing too crazy.
That being said, I'd love to do GOMAD, but since I'm fighting a continual battle with patellar tendonitis, dairy will probably encourage a flair up. I plan to use a lot of coconut milk and beef isolate protein powder instead. The majority of my nutrition will come from food, the coconut milk/protein will be supplemental.

Any critiques, suggestions, hate mail or words of wisdom would be much appreciated.
