Hi, I believe this is a question which must be answered by your Nutrilogist.
I am not a Doctor/Nutrologist--- nor pretend to be one.. I am just a caring individual.
My personal point of view:
There are many, but before..what helps with the loss of weight is excersice if you are able to, hypocaloric diets ( high on protein , low on carbs, with salads) you can eat carbs at breakfast, and not too much at lunch time, and try to eat non-refined carbs... they are a lot more healthier than the refined ons. Snacks... bannanas besides every one ones about the potassium etc, this frui that containt dopamines and other fruits( apples) . These are snacks ( healthy to keep you going)... ALWAYS EAT HEART HEALTHY FOODS... CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR.
To lose the weight there are 3 factors excersice, diet (and a natural supplement) and aereboics. You must sarifice, have the will power and discipline.
I recommend you take a supplement that is healthy.
There is a product which does truly help , it is made from a plant , no side effects, all natural components, no bounce effect, It is called total lean from GNC . It is CLA ( conjugated linoleic acid), you take 3 capsules a day with half an hour before each meal. Drink plenty of fluids
CLA, short for Conjugated Linoleic Acid, can be found in many health and fitness supplements and is even sold as its own supplement, independent from other ingredients. The reported goal of CLA is to reduce the storage of body fat. Numerous studies are said to exist that back the belief that this fatty acid has beneficial results in weight loss efforts. Because CLA is sold by many supplement manufacturers under many names, the options are numerous for people seeking to try a CLA supplement. Many of these products also include additional weight loss ingredients in an effort to speed and maximize results.
NOW ALL THIS MUST BE DIsCUSSED WITH YOUR DOCTOR/ NUTROLOGIST BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING ON YOUR OWN.
I HAVE JUST GIVEN YOU SOME INPUT... AT THE END OF THE DAY YOUR DOCTOR MUST DECIDE WHAT IS BEST FOR YOU, NOT ME.

Hi Wepia, Wow do I wish I had your problem! Anyhow, you still have to eat nutrional foods but they have drinks like ensure that have 350 calories and if you add about three of those to your diet, you should be able to gain about 2 lbs. a week. Do not forget you still have to excercise ( muscle weighs more than fat) Eat fruit and fiber, but add some high calorie foods like pasta,peanut butter,protien shakes (you can through a little ice cream in those too), all the stuff for weight gain is in the same aisle at the grocery store as weight loss things. Read labels, you can gain weight if you add high protien, high carb ( but healthy) to your regular diet. Good Luck. Fall Queen

Wow, can I relate to this question,
After many years of always being too thin, I am using Boost four times a days, and I also add Benecalorie to it, as one container of Benecalorie has 370 calories, when added to the boost you get a ton of calories I use this with my three main meals a day, and one before bedtime. I usually weighed about 87 -90 lbs, I could eat everything in site, and not gain an ounce, with this Boost and Benecalorie, I have maintained between 115-122 and I am five feet three and one half inches tall.
I talked to a nutritionist at my doctors office who usually deals with people trying to lose weight so needless to say I was her first challenge at trying help someone gain the weight. LOL>>
It took her about two weeks to come up with a diet plan for me. You need to see a nutritionist also, it will help tremendously! I feel better after gaining this weight, however if I run out of boost or benecalorie, I can lose ten pounds in one week, so I learned to stay ahead of the plan. I am the one who suffers when I lose the wt. I hope this helps a bit. Ask about the Benecalorie OK... I ordered it over the Internet. a case at a time. I wish you luck. Bless You.

Hi wepia, I googled meds that make you gain weight, and I found out that Remeron, Zyprexa and Seroquel can cause one to gain weight. These meds are called A-typical anti-psychotic drugs.These meds are used for other purposes than just psychosis. And I believe all of them are on the "bad drug" list.
Any med has side effects, but that is just this girls opinion.
I think the answer is see a nutritionalist, as some wise person (forget who) said already.
Wishing you only the best. sweetlemon

GNC carries a few different weight gainers. A kind of protein powder. These will work if taken as directed. Some taste aweful but some are good. Ive used the banana and mixed it with peanut butter.
