Dear Nicky
There are many excellent liquid supplements that you can take to increase your energy intake, e.g. Fresubin with fibre, Ensure, Nestle products and many others. Ask your chemist about such products and also how much they cost. 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. Phone Fresenius Kabi (011) 203-2000 and ask about their Nutritional Supplements that can help you to gain weight. Remember that you must take these supplements IN ADDITION to your normal meals, not as a replacement of meals, to ensure that you gain more weight.
Good luck
