Anyway, thanks so far for all the advice, I think I will def. try the Smoothy thing and the protein bars... thanks so much guys!
If you try the smoothies, just don't use fruit or anything with a lot of simple sugar in it, and by all means, avoid energy drinks. To gain weight, your diet needs to be a good balance of complex carbs, protein, and fat. Simple carbs/sugar increase insulin production and increase your metabolic rate - both of which are counterproductive to gaining weight...

I would go with the smoothie idea. Your body absorbs calories in liquid form so much quicker and with less work. My son was born with a type of diabetes where he ate very little and drank water a lot. His body could not hold the water so he would drink and pee constantly. He was so full of water he never ate so they told us to try and up his calories in liquid form.

Good luck. All I can say is by G-d, I wish I had your problem. I just gained 10 bs because someone type the word "cake", lol.

I am no dietician, and it probably wouldn't be a bad idea if you could meet with one to discuss your situation. However, what I can tell you is that you should definitely make time for each meal. At least 3 substantial balanced meals a day. You need food for energy. I think it's really admirable that you recognize this and that you want to increase your physical well-being. Thumbs up for you. (:

God bless, englishaqh (:
