im struggling with loss of appetite. how do yall make yourself eat? I don't want to take the time to cook (even microwave stuff) because I inevitably know I will not eat it and I don't want to waste the energy. snacking hasn't worked for me either :( I have fainted once, nearly (maybe did??) fainted like 3 other times, and I have been dealing with dizziness
it’s a lot easier to drink your calories than it is to eat them! my go to is protein shakes or smoothies because you can get it some good nutrients + you can get them prepackaged. If your appetite is especially low you can just sip it slowly or just psych yourself up and chug it
also with adhd meds i’d recommend taking a magnesium supplement it’s been a life saver
thank you so much 🙏
Do you have any protein shake recommendations? I tried ensure and it's so nasty lol
I can get half a bottle down before the flavor is too horrific
muscle milk or premiere protein are usually my go to
also liquid iv is great
like an IV from the hospital? Is that something I can do on my own...?
no it’s just a drink powder. you can get them at walmart or probably any other store
Everything Aries 02 has said! I personally abhor protein powder, so I juice a lot of make whole fruit smoothies. Easy, tastes decent, nutritious a.f. also, if you don't already have a workout regimen, walking a mile or two a couple hours before bed will help with the restlessness if you take your meds late in the day
