which might sound fab. but I was only 7 1/2 stone anyway. I am now down to 6 1/2 stone which is shockily skinny. I am having to wear belts with my size 8 jeans. I hate it. How can I put weight back on fast? My face looks drawn and I hate it. In april I went away with DH and some friends and I loved the way I looked, healthy and happy, I look horrible now

Lots of cake, pasta with creamy sauces, fried chicken, beer, butter on bread and full fat milk.

You can also get build up drinks called fortisip, although I think these are prescription only.

Complan made with full fat milk.

I don't know which supplements are available over the counter or maybe your GP could help. However, my first thought was taking a slimfast milkshake in addition to your breakfast and lunch for a vitamin enriched way of putting weight back on again.

Ooooh lets break out the beers and the barbie!! Get a few much needed pounds on you!!

flossam, i think slimfast is more filling than it should be for the calories, hence the ,arket for dieters... I could be very wrong about that though.

,arket= market

I don't drink milk, can't stand it...

Loads of carbs - bread & jam, pasta & cheese. Check with your doc on a fortified drink to help.

I used to eat all the time, and I am slowly getting back into eating properably, I couldn't eat because it made me feel sick. I know it was the stress that did that, and now the stress has gone, I am trying to eat as much as possible.

If you go to the gp he might prescribe you fortisip drinks, as they do a pineapple juice flavoured one, which I think is free of milk, but doesn't taste milky anyway.

SM I was 6 1/2 stone before I had DS and you know how skinny I was then, since having the kids I put on the extra stone and I was happy with it because I looked healthy, so i'm gutted that its gone

Flossam Sun 21-Aug-05 23:55:11

Yes Colditz, fortisip come in a wide variety of fruit flavours! Yum! Where do you live Sparkley? Don't suppose you have a krispy Kreme near you? If so, you'd have no probs - at all!
