Dear Hilrich
I have had a look at the composition of this Vita Salveo and see that it is just a mixture of vitamins, minerals, whey protein and soy protein. You can obtain the same ingredients from any complete vitamin and mineral supplement (e.g. Centrum or Supradyn) and more protein by eating a tub of yoghurt! Gaining weight is just as problematic as trying to lose it. Basically individuals who struggle to gain weight do not ingest sufficient energy for the high demands of their Basic metabolic rate and/or physical activity. I have written some articles on this subject. For basic information click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then on 'Diet Basics' and 'Weight gaining' and read the articles. Companies like Nestle, among others, make meal replacement supplements Phone the Nestle Consumer Services at 0860 09 6789 and ask about Nutritional Supplements to boost your energy intake. You can purchase liquid meal supplements at most chemist shops. Talk to the pharmacist about your need to gain weight and see which products he or she will recommend. Basically you need to eat more food either by gradually increasing how much you eat at each meal, or by taking supplements IN ADDITION to your regular meals (not to replace meals), or by having more snacks between meals. If you use a liquid meal supplement at the rate of 200 ml 3x a day, then you should gain 1 kg per week. Feedback from other Readers has indicated that they have successfully gained weight by using a meal supplement.

There''s a pill, I think it starts with a P, that increases your appetite- ask your pharmacist. Otherwise try shakes like Regain or Shape (meal replacement shakes)- drink these throughout the day or with your meals,
