Supplement diet: You may want to work with a nutritionist to see why your present diet is not keeping up with your needs. They are often found at hospitals as part of their clinical nutrition program.A simple alternative is to invest in a supplement that you take daily. Carnation makes "breakfast essentials" that can serve as an inexpensive alternative to Ensure or similar milkshake supplements.
