Our expert says:
I hear what you say and can imagine that it must be most uncomfortable and frustrating to eat and eat and not manage to gain weight and keep it on. I would recommend that you do open that tin of Ensure and use it IN ADDITION to your regular meals (not to replace 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, like Ensure. This should also eliminate the need to eat high-fat foods which are not healthy. I would also suggest that you have your thyroid tested just to make sure that you are not suffering from an overactive thyroid which can hamper weightloss.
