How can I gain weight? I lost a lot of weight while going through breast cancer. I can't seem to gain it back.
I weighed 148 lbs. and got down to 112 lbs. my weight varies around 115 lbs. My oncologist says for me to eat lots of ice cream, so I have. At night my husband will fix a big bowl of vanilla ice cream smothered in chocolate sauce. Most times it will be around 8:30pm at night. One of the rules to loose weight is to not eat after 7:00 pm because your metabolism slows down at night. So, if that is the case, my eating after 7:00 pm should be able to gain weight.
Finally, please do not tell me you wish you had my problem. Please, please. I am 5'9" tall and wear a size 6. I cannot risk getting sick because I have zero body reserve to draw from and have ended up seriously ill in the hospital. My fatigue factor is high too.
I, also, drink multiple protein drinks (31 grams protein) and Ensure Muscle Mass. Plus, I work out, but not intensely, because muscle weighs more than fat.
Anyone know how to help me with this, I'd really appreciate it.
