800 calorie diet, found out i'm anaemic, the iron pills are making me constipated and i don't want to eat meat because i'm vegan, what should I do?

Not all calories are created equal, so the source of the calories is crucial. My favorite overall diet for good health is dr. Fuhrman's.

My 1yo needs to start on Pediasure or Carnation Instant breakfast for calories (FTT), is there a "healthier" option or do I not worry about "organic"?
Depends: The Carnation product added to milk or almond milk can provide similar nutrients for a fraction of the cost of Pediasure.
