I sure do!
First, eat early, eat late and eat often!
Second, consume larger portions. Try to get in a few more bites or sips at every sitting.
Third, choose the most calorie-rich from each food group including:
Animal proteins: cheese, ground meat, eggs, rib meat, lamb.
Starches: tortillas, bagels, mashed potato, granola.
Fruits: avocado, grapes, banana, dates, any dried.
Vegetables: carrots, corn, peas, potatoes, winter squash.
Dairy: cheese, milkshakes, whole milk Greek yogurt.
Other: nuts and nut butters, nectars, hummus, guacamole, olives.
Fourth, consider taking a complete multivitamin/mineral complex. Every cell needs nutrients to function properly, especially if you expect them to grow and divide.
Good luck, and keep us updated with your progress!
