Yes. For 3 or 4 days, cut your fats and start eating some starch. Instead of eating red meat, go for chicken breast and tuna with all your meals, and 2-3 sweet potatoes and 2-3 bananas each day. After around 3-4 days on a low fat, starchy diet, snap back into your normal routine. You may need a leptin bounce from a few days of eating starch.
I strongly recommend not mixing fat with starch. That's the most effective way to gain weight - when your body is processing carbohydrate for fuel, it'll store your dietary fat. You're best off trying to keep fats under 50g a day for those days and carbs in the 200-300g range. Make the rest protein. Try and eat at least maintenance calories and up to 20% over. Complex carbs - starches - are what you want here. This is not an invitation to eat sugar or grains. Go for potatoes, sweet potatoes, white rice, bananas, gluten-free oats and the like. If you love the idea of a bowl of oatmeal with sliced banana and a glass of skim milk for breakfast, and a lean turkey burger with oven fries for lunch, now's your chance.
