Avoid Ensure...: More calories will help you gain weight but I do NOT advise Ensure, as it has many ingredients from GMO sources (corn sugars, soy, canola oil) and ingredients like synthetic Vit. E which are best avoided. You can go to a health food store and find a whey protein powder from grass-fed cows and mix it with organic juices. You will get just as many extra calories as Ensure but it will be healthier. ...Read more

This would translate to an increase in calories of 500/day to gain one pound in a week! continue to be sure that your extra calories are nutritious, not junk. Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, almond butter on whole grain toast, smoothies are other good examples. You probably don't get much sympathy, but it can be hard to gain! ...Read more
