Default Re: Food options

Steve has the same struggles with food. He does start out his day with a ton of calories and the late morning is when he feels like eating the most. He has three eggs fried in coconut oil, ground sausage and a shake made with high calorie insure, icecream, coconut oil and whatever else he wants in there. He gets over a 1,000 calories. The rest of the day he has a harder time eating.

Smoothies and shakes seem to be the easiest for him and you can stick as much high calorie foods in there as you can think of. We use chocolate syrup, peanut butter and other things but try to mix it up so he isn't having the same thing every morning. He dietician said it really doesn't matter what you eat and enjoy the fact that you can eat whatever you want or can eat.
