    My husband is always hungry but he's tube fed

    My husband is always hungry. He's completely tube fed now. Last few times he tired to eat it didn't go too well. He has about 5 cans per day but he's constantly hungry. I make him smoothies and I've made him scrambled eggs and then put them in the blender. Any suggestions for what I can do...

    Feeding Tube

    My Pals is steadily losing weight -- 40 pounds since diagnosis in Feb 2014. He still eats by mouth but it is becoming more difficult.

    This sounds like a great smoothie recipe

    I just found this and thought it sounds rather divine, though I'm not a whiskey girl I thought it could be substituted with baileys or similar. For those PALS getting sick of the same old smoothie, or looking for one to share with their CALS :) Soak some ginger nut biscuits in whiskey ( this...

    I hope that I'm not imaging this.

    I went out to lunch with my friend and I think her speech and drooling are better. She asked the waitress if there was a way to have her food blended. The waitress said they didn't have a blender, so my friend ordered salmon with some kind of sauce and got some extra sauce. She ate fine and...

    Blending/Pureeing food

    My husband does not have a feeding tube and will not be getting one. Although I cut his food up and he has a semi soft diet anyway, he coughs as he eats now, and takes a really long time to finish anything. I think I need to start making things more soup like for him but wondered what other Cals...

    Mucus - Again - ALS Diet

    I wanted to share some "sort of" good news with everyone. As with many of you mucus has been a real problem for me. I had a mucus induced coughing fit that was so bad Wednesday that it was evoking my gag reflex and made all the muscles under my ribs ache like a son of a b1tch. Unfortunately it...

    Benecalorie

    Hi all- I have been on the forums since February and just in passing read something Barbie mentioned about Benecal, or Benecalorie. I just felt this was important enough to make it's own, current, topic "just in case" is helpful for anyone. My mom has bulbar onset ALS and so...

    Solid vs purée

    Any suggestions on how I can purchase a Vitamix blender for cheap? My husband is going to be needing everything puréed before too long, I understand these are the best but are very cost prohibitive. Any recipe ideas out there that may satisfy a stubborn husband who still wants to eat little...
