I dropped 30 lbs. in two months when I was taken off a high-fat raw food diet and placed on a more conventional diet by a doctor and dietician. The only way I have been able to gain weight is by eating lots of fat and protein (large amounts of protein are not the best thing for Lyme due to the ammonia they cause in the body). Sally Fallon & Mary Enig have several books out on healthy fats (no affiliation). Fats not only protect the body, but also are necessary for proper cell comunication.
