Several options: *eat small frequent meals*nonodorous foods*bland foods are typically better *eat in pleasant surroundings at scheduled times*supplement frequently (3 times daily minimum with ensure or boost or protein shakes)*try ginger (supplement typically helps with nausea, though may help with taste)*increase fluid intake*good oral hygeine ( burshing, saline rinses, no cigarettes or tobacco)*ask md for a list.
