Do you mean so that you can gain weight? If you feel that your metabolism is very fast then I would recommend that you have a medical checkup to rule out an overactive thyroid. If you suffer from this condition, the dr will have to give you the appropriate treatment. It is difficult to slow down your metabolism with foods. 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. Fresenius Kabi have a supplement called Fresubin (with or without fibre) that can assist with this problem. Phone Magda on (011) 203-2000 or 083-603-2231 and ask her about this and other Nutritional Supplements.
