Hi kait86-have you inquired about high calorie foods at your CF center? They were able to provide me with alot of recipes for everything from drinks to deserts that were high calorie and quite tasty. My daughter was such a picky eater, it was hard to find anything appealing to her but I had quite alot of success with those recipes. I felt comfortable using them since that had come from the CFF.
hello! im 20 a yr old female, 5'1 and weigh about 97 lbs. i am getting a g-tube in 3 weeks and was wondering about how much weight it would make me gain. i am excited about getting the tube and hoping to gain atleast 10 lbs. has anyone received good results with a g-tube?
Oh, and reading the rest of the post, it caught my attention. The reason being, is before CF patients were put on a high fat diet (before proper enzymes were invented, back in the 70's-80's I think). People were put on a zero fat, high protein diet. People managed to survive that. But I must say, looking back to then, a lot of kids with cf found there bodies couldn't cope on such a diet. I personally say-a good rounded diet, with lots of protein, and the right amount of enzymes too accomodate for any fat you have, and high-calorie- seems too work the best for me. I also have a LOT of sugar, and have developed a very sweet tooth, due to me finding it the best for gaining weight.
