Anyone have any good suggestions for weight gain besides the shakes?
I am 4 years out now and still struggle daily with the weight and with looking so bony. I'd love to have some meat on these bones. I find that it takes 3 or more tall glasses of water per meal just to get the food down and there's not much room for food when you're consuming that much water! That combined with lack of taste buds (although I can taste a couple things) and sore throat and avoiding hard to swallow things make it difficult to gain weight. I find myself dreading eating and finding it such a chore now! Most of the things I find go down easily are things that are not the most nutritious.
I do want to get back to where i would enjoy eating again. Anyone far enough out to know if that ever comes back? Or is this just another one of those things where I just have to re-adjust what "normal" is again?
