I just have no appatite and force feeding myself is too hard. I get nauseous a lot and take zofran only when I need it. My dr today said I should go on birth control pills to gain weight and since im ending my depo shot soon. But I don't want to gain weight uncontrollably I just want a healthy weight. I'm 24 5"4 and 108 or 105 depending on the day. What are my other options?
Maybe boost would be a feasible alternative for you.its a high calorie drink.antianxiolytic meds tend to increase hunger for some ppl such as myself.
There are hi calorie drinks or powders to put in drinks.
If you're having anxiety have you tried an antideprressant that helps relieve anxiety as antidepressants tend to cause weight gain especially the older ones?
I had similar problems just a couple of months ago and what I did is the foods that I could eat that were high calorie foods I started eating more of them then I also added malted milks to my diet and I tried to make every meal at least 800 calories or more plus 2 snacks every day. To gain weight you must eat more calories than you use plus you must have some fat in your diet that's where the malted milk was my fat boost. You will have to figure it out yourself what foods will work for you as you know your diet restrictions. Oh and yes I have started to gain weight, about 8 pounds in 2 weeks 4 more pounds and then I will see if I can just maintain it
