I'm in the same boat. You can try increasing your ensure or do what I am doing if you can tolerate milk-have a big ice cream malted with lot's of whipped cream. I still have not seen an increase but at least no loss. Another is to take a banana, peanut butter, yogurt and make a drink out of that. Much better health wise and lot's of calories too! And try eating every 2 hours-that is the hardest for me. I swear I am eating more now than before this last flare and I still cannot get the weight up.
