I've been diagnosed with ibs. Which is the best meal plan to gain weight/build muscle avoiding to feel bloated, gassy and without soft stools?

Individuals vary: The best food for muscle building is meat/protein, and even relatively poor protein (whey) can be effective.
The way in which you eat it doesn't matter as much.
Different people with IBS have very different responses to various foods like dairy (avoid) but often meat, .often beans (gas). Maybe nuts but can't say in your particular case
