HELP!! I need to up my intake!!

Okay so here’s a list of things that have worked for me and some things I know work for other people… if anyone else has suggestions just let me know and I can always add on to the list!!

  • Add things like raisins, granola, veggie dip, peanut butter, nuts to whatever you can
  • Drink- juice, milk (liquids are easier to get down if you’re feeling full)
  • Eat all 3 meals every day.
  • Snack between meals :) You can bring little baggies of whatever goodies you want or pieces of fruit.
  • Smoothies and things are SO nommy and easy to make!! 
  • Boost or Ensure at the end of the day if you haven’t had enough will help to get nutrients in. They are SUPER nommy but should not be a substitue for food but as kind of a “plan B” when you couldn’t get enough in.
  • Melt some peanut butter and stir it into vanilla yogurt (sorry, I’m obsessed with peanut butter cause it’s super nommy).
  • Don’t increase you’re intake too fast- remember, take baby steps.
  • Keep in mind that food is fuel for your body and you need it to function. Take care of your body and it will take care of you.
  • You might have to mentally prepare yourself for increasing intake but YOU CAN DO IT!!! It may take you a while to finish eating what you have but just take you’re time, be patient, and breathe. You can do this!

Remember- find the things that work for you and stick to them!!

Add-ons from some lovely people:
healing-b3gins said: Greek yogurt has protein in it. Soy nuts. Blueberries. V8 splay or fusions have fruits/veggies in it, plus they’re nommy :) 

atleastihavemywitsCLIF BARS, protien powder can be added to basically anything, i like to get those preportioned ice cream cups (since ice cream is a binge trigger it hleps me to add the cals and tastiness of ice creams but not be triggered to polish off the whole container) NUTS, when i was first restoring weight but couldnt bare to eat much more i just had to have a milk shake at the end of everyday (nom nom nom) 

wildgeese-love: when I really needed to gain my mother would make these milkshakes with protein powder, ensure, and ben&jerry’s ice cream. For breakfast, try adding walnuts to pancakes, especially pumpkin or sweet potato pancakes. Also, try low-acid orange juice if regular juice is hard on your stomach.
