For me, I find that constant snacking throught the day, is better than a big meal. Your body only has too try to digest smaller bits at a time that way.When trying too recover lost weight after a bad infection. I tend too have 1-4 small meals a day. Any meal I miss I replace with a skandishake. I snack on wotsits or fruit or even salad with cheese or a high fat dressing to dip into. Again, if I don't fancy eating anything, I have a Fresubin drink. I like them, as there not very thick and easy too drink.
Sugar is awsome, if you can actually have it. You don't really have to have any enzymes to digest sugar. It's something too do with the way it's digested. It turns into fat. Obviously not good if you're diabetic aswell though. And you should brush your teeth more regular if you do go for the high sugar diet.
I haven't found a way too getting enough salt into my system with food yet. Last summer, I was adding loads of salt to absolutely everything, but I was still loosing much more than my body needs to run. I find the only option for me is slow sodium tablets, when it's particularly hot, and I'm starting too feel sleepy.
If you want any more info on anything, feel free to ask. It's what I'm here for, I will try to answer things as bestI can:)
Hope you're well
