Dear Kasandra
You can eat other protein foods instead of meat like fish, eggs, and cheeses or yoghurt if meat disgusts you. If you suffer from premenstrual syndrome (PMS), then it is a good idea to discuss this condition with your gynae as you may be anaemic or lacking in B vitamins - the gynae will also decide if you need iron and/or vit B injections or tablets. If you specifically want to gain weight then taking Ensure (3 glasses a day in addition to your normal meals) should assist you. Click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then on 'DietDoc's articles' and read article 57 'PMS and diet'.
Hope you feel better soon
