    I'm trying to eat regularly even though it's painful and I'm keeping a food diary

    Eating is more painful at night for me so trying to eat during the day and less at night

    Avocados seem to be ok and full of stuff! I'm on goats milk etc but  to be honest its all hit and miss.  I think the panics and night sweats increase my calorie burn!

    Good luck be good to hear from anyone else?

    Good luck

    Hi Shar!

    Avocados mentioned by joyyoga are an excellent choice.  Easy on the system as well.

    A few years ago, I got very sick and lost quite a bit of weight. I am not sure if they sell products like Boost Hi Protein drinks or Ensure in the UK, but that's how I eventually gained my weight back. I started out simply drinking those and gatorade to have some form of nourishment when I couldn't tolerate food.

    After I began improving and eating again, I would drink at least two of the Boost High protein shakes a day. I ate a lot mashed potatoes and other starchy products that helped increase my weight along with following a regular diet.  It took a few months (2 or 3) before I started to look my old self.

    It's crazy now, as I have the complete opposite issue now.sad

    Good luck as I know how frustrating this can be.
