When I was young, my mom would be bring me to our pedia and she would make kulit on how can we (plus my 3 siblings) gain weight. She would give us appetite stimulant, prescribed by the doctor. We eat a lot, veggies, meat, chicken, fruits...We are not picky. We drink Sustagen every night. The doctor even prescribed heraclene to be mixed with our milk. But to my mom's disappointment, we didn't gain weight or the weight she wanted. Maybe we were just built this way. I'm forever 99 lbs., he he.
During my fourth and last pregnancy (4th cs), my weight is not so desirable to my ob-gyne's standard. So she prescribed foods/drinks to gain more weight.
Here's the list:
sweet corn on the cob
mashed potato or french fries
quail eggs or boiled eggs
more rice, rice cakes (kakanin)
fresh ripe mangoes
avocado shakes or the fresh fruit itself
hot or cold milk
In no time, I gained so much weight...but then again, my baby is only 6.3 lbs.
