It was my son's nutritionist that found his current supplement. She had to do some real digging because of his other heath issues. Ends up it is actually a meal replacement for patients with GI or surgical GI imparements. It's chocked so full of good stuff he could survive on it if he had to.
Is yours able to do some digging around or make suggestions for a good supplement, even if it is RX?
Once our nutritionist found the right thing, she wrote up the RX. She works at a Children's Hospital and has the power to write RX's, but I'm not sure if all nutritionists do. If not, maybe all she would have to do is send a reccomendation to your Dr, and he/she will write it for you.

Or maybe you've already been that route, so just ignore me.
.... I'll just be busy working on my 101 ways to be creative with avocados recipe collection!

I absolutely LOVE avacado, so please send those 101 recipes my way. I will talk with my nutritionist. I think when I told her I wanted to avoid prescriptions she took me very seriously. I should be on something for my cholesterol as well, but I really like the natural approach better then just using a drug...

I hear you. I am not unhealthily thin, or not much so. I hover between 125 and 130, but I'm 5'9" and what little weight I have is muscle. The heaviest I ever was was just over 135 lbs and I was eating whole wheat everything and lots of beans. We were in a volunteer group project and part of our thing we had to do was go vegetarian and no processed foods at all for 3 months. I was almost fat. Cool. We even made lentilburgers instead of hamburgers. They weren't all that bad, except I detested beans at the time; I still won't eat lentils but have grown to like kidney beans.

I find the best thing is to eat basically constantly. When I'm paying attention, there is always a container of nuts and fruit in my vehicle. A mixed bowl of nuts, fruits and cereals on the kitchen table. I am not a fan of sandwiches, but when I do eat bread it's rye. Stay away from white bread, bake with whole wheat flour (or at least a 50/50 mix with white) and sprinkle ground nuts or seeds on anything and everything: salads, meats, vegies -- whatever. Experiment with it. You can get some absolutely amazing flavours!

Thanks! I love vegetarian foods, I am practically a vegetarian anyways because I refuse to eat things that are highly processed and filled with "stuff." The only meat I will eat has to be locally raised by a farmer that I know or that has a good reputation. I prefer grass fed beef over anything else... that being said, I have limited options. I eat mostly vegetables, beans, nuts and grains. Fruit sometimes, but I don't have a big sweet tooth. My tofu cheese cake is to DIE FOR and I make it often because it's full of calories. I add home made whipped cream and fruit sometimes. I will have to log everything I eat in a day and post it. You'll be surprised how much food fits in this body!

PM'ed you some info.
Avocados.... ah yes.... love them.
It's not really how to cook with them for the main ingredient, really more of a how to include avocados in everything without turning your child green.
Um, avocado in milk shakes, avocado in tacos, avocado fruit salads, avocado in burgers, avocado in cream sauce... you get the point.
Avocado seems to shine well in a fruity application and my son actually really likes them best this way, but I also hide it in darn near everything. When they go on sale, I'm the one receiving the odd looks as I walk out of the store with bags of them.

I love avocado on my veggie burgers and in tacos, I bet it's really good in fruit salad and cream sauce. I make guac at least a few times a week!!

Oh yes and stay away from junk food. I loose weight big time when I start on the chips, etc. Popcorn is great though.
    02-16-2012, 10:37 PM
I make my own junk food, that is less junk and more food. Like Kale chips and dehydrated fruit. I do love ice cream though. No avoiding that one. And its an awesome source of calories because I eat it religiously. You should see me in the dead of winter, sitting by the wood stove with slippers, a hat, sweat pants and ice cream! My DH makes fun of me all the time!

Thanks everyone for the helpful tips and pointers :) I will have to keep you posted on my progress and let you know what works best for me.
