In recovery and refeeding meal plan

I have been taken into hospital yesterday for having a really low weight. My paediatric doctor and dietician think i have refeeding syndrome. Today was day 1, I had to eat a lot according to my meal plan. It was scary but I know its for my own good as i have to gain 8-9kg. How long does it take to gain at least half a kg according to a standard refeeding plan?

Everyone’s body gains differently, some gain fast at the start and then it levels out but some gain slower at the start and then it levels out. But generally a week to gain 0.5-1 kg

No person is exactly the same - but I think its terrific you are engaging with the treatment - don't give up - keep going - if only I had the support and help at your age my life could have been so different - all the anxiety, hardwork is worth it - so good luck.
