Like the previous Reader your BMI = 19,7 which is very low. You would need to weigh 54 kg to have an ideal BMI of 22. Start taking the Ensure again, but use it every day because ingesting 200 ml 3x a day, should result in a gain of 1 kg per week. Once you have regained your weight, take a maintenance dose of Ensure every day to prevent weightloss. For basic information on weight gaining, click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then on 'Diet Basics' and 'Weight gaining' and read the articles.
