He has a feeding tube but his doctors want to get him weaned off the tube as quickly as possible. He's having a difficult time getting the necessary 3K calories needed to gain weight so he can withstand the chemo treatment. He's also got a psychological aversion to eating anything solid, saying that food makes him gag.
I've suggested bone broths, whey protein isolate shakes (made with either full-fat dairy milk or coconut milk), adding butter and coconut oils to anything, and have him snack on nut butters.
Any other suggestions that could help?
