Need help on gaining weight

So i have always been under weight. I had my son two years ago then stopped having a period after that. Well the doctor told me today that my body is not making any estrogen and my uteris walls are very thin. Since we are not trying to have a child right at the moment there is no need to see a specialist, but she did tell me it might help if i gain weight. She told me to start trying to drink protein shakes. I have no idea about them whats the best kind, what taste the best, which is the cheapiest, do i take it with a meal after a meal or what? Please help any advice would be nice and yes i do eat i would never starve myself or anything like that.

  • Drink Ensure as often as you can with or without a regular meal. Also Ovaltine in whole milk & Ice Cream at night will help pack on the pounds.

  • Oooh, just come over here . . . .I'll feed you well. Just kidding. :) So, yes, protein shakes, making sure you are snacking and not missing meals . . . maybe add in a fourth meal somewhere. Try adding more healthy carbs. And change your milk to whole.

  • well wal mart has these jars of pure whey protein shakes. you need to couple this with exercise though because protein helps you built muscle, not fat. but you need the exercise to build the muscle

  • There is an item my cousin used to give her kids to gain weight. (Appetivit) not sure if that is the correct spelling. It is an French item you take and it increase your appetite, it works wonders. Be prepare though you will not stop eatting. Another item you can have your doctor prescribe is Periacttin. Wonder pill. But my friend took this and loved it.
