Hello everyone!
 
I've never been able to balance my weight and exercise. If I exercise too much I lose weight, and if I don't exercise enough I get congested. With my busy work schedule and college, I get a lot of exercise...of course not always enough rest.
 
Do you have any suggestions on how to gain weight? I eat A LOT!!! But, I just am not gaining anything, and I am so sick and tired of being scrawny. sad
 
Thankyou!
Melissa

Hi Melissa!
I used to be really good at giving ths advice, as I used to eat constantly, and eat lots.

Recently though, I'm pretty much living on High-cal shakes. Because I'm just never hungry.

I think the best diet to go for is one high in calories, rather than high in fat. I've found that if I eat soemthing really fatty, my belly plays up, as I have to get the amount of creon exact.
Also fat doesn't digest very well in our bodies.

I personally concentrate on eating a LOT of sugar, this can be a problem thouygh if you are diabetic obviously. But I find it is the best way fr me to put on weight.

Keep doing the excercise, as it will keep your lung function up!

Hope you're ok, sorry I can't be more helpful!

Gem,
Thanks for the advice. My parents have always cooked fried foods. BIG meals of fried foods, and have stuffed me full with as much of it as they could. But, lately fried foods haven't settled as well in my stomach. Especially bacon and eggs in the morning. So...although I'm not much into doughnuts...I ate like 3 glazed doughnuts before bed last night! LOL! Maybe this will help. I also drink shakes too. Although...after having a g-tube from 4th to 10th or 11th grade I find it hard to tolerate a lot of high calorie shakes because of the smell and taste. But, I've found chocolate "Sport Shakes" to help. They're not too filling so that I can still eat, but just enough to help me keep my weight steady.
Thankyou!
Melissa
