Dear Skinny
If you are very thin you need to increase your food intake. Eat as much as you can at each meal, have healthy snacks in between (wholewheat bread or crackers of biscuits with polyunsaturated margarine, peanut butter and/or jam or Nutella - high-energy foods). Also start using liquid meal supplements IN ADDITION to your regular meals. Fresenius-Kabi may be able to advise which meal supplement is best for your condition (phone (011) 203-2000) or phone Nestle Consumer Services at 086-009-6789 and ask them about their liquid meals. Your chemist also stocks many meal supplements such as Ensure, etc.
Best regards
