Fortisip... - November 25th 2010, 02:32 AM

Okay so I need to put on weight, and I've gained absolutely nothing since I started to eat again back in like July, in fact i've lost more. So I was given fortisip, which if you don't know is a supplement...it's like my last hope, im still fighting with doctors to keep me OUT of hospital.
Thing is, I dont like it I don't know what to do, mum got angry and said I just have to have it, but I've tried and I dont like it at all. I can obviously force myself to have it, and im not worried about the calories, but I dont like the taste And I am meant to have 3 a day! No way can I do that.
I don't know what to do, I've got 3 different flavours, and so far ive tried two...Im so upset because I just want to hurry up and gain weight, im going to have to force myself to have them but its not very nice to force myself to have something I hate...

Im lost, what should I do??? I don't want to go to hospital. Maybe I could have 1 a day, I dunno, im so frustrated!

If you are serious about gaining weight, sometimes you have to tough it out and do some of the things they want you to do. Taking a supplement isn't that bad, and if you want to gain weight and this is a hope to do so, I say take it.

Just eat a bit with the pill to mask the taste of it, or drink something with it. If you want to gain weight, drink milk with it, since milk helps build up your bone structure, and then your body can slowly transition to gaining more weight.

Lol fortisip is a milkshake, not a pill http://www.nutriciaclinical.co.nz/ad...y/fortisip.pdf

Its okay, I tried the 3rd flavour and it was fine After the others had been chilled for a bit I just had the whole thing and tried to ignore the taste! I have managed to have 2 bottles today so that is an extra load of calories that I couldn't ever have gotten from food...I think if I keep having them I will just like them!

We have something like that here, Pedisure, and the chocolate ones are usually pretty decent flavours. If you really hate it, could you add a pinch of sugar to it? It might make it sweeter at least. Just hang in there Emma, hopefully the drinks will help!
