I am in my 6th week of a 7 week treatment. I have hit a wall with eating and I am now starving. I am basically on a liquid diet, which is fine. The problem is that Boost, Resource, Ensure, etc make me sick when I drink them. My body doesn't like them at all. I was doing really well with Carnation Instant Breakfast Essentials and high protein/calorie smoothies, but then my body stopped accepting them as well. Everytime I drink one my guts rumble and shake and I get horrid acid indigestion that cannot be touched by the Protonix acid pills the doctor gave me. Makes me want to puke everytime I "eat" anything. It's not that I don't feel like eating, I want to eat really bad...
Did any of you deal with this?
I had small success yesterday by getting a fruit smoothie that had no powdery stuff in it, and it stayed down fine. The problem is that you have to get a huge one to get only 500-ish calories. Had a hard time getting it all down.
