In brief: Eating frequently

The mainstay of treatment is to eat small frequent meals every 2-4 hours.
I usually recommend that the meals be 110 - 250 calories each (depending on your needs) with about 8-12 g of protein. Any time during the day you can eat your "main meal". Drink 16 oz of water at each meal as well.
