In brief: Liquid supplements

Since gastroparesis tends to mainly affect solid food emptying, try to add more calories in the form of liquid supplements such as boost and ensure.

In brief: Work with doctor

Frequent small meals may be helpful.
There are medicines that can reduce the nausea and allow you to eat more. Most importantly, work with a doctor experienced in this condition, and ask him if there could be anything else going on, as most patients do not lose much weight with gastroparesis.
