Recently found out I'm hypoglycemic & slightly underweight, so I'm trying to gain weight. But even at the start I find it very difficult to do, because when I think of foods to gain weight I can only think of sugary foods like pie or greasy like pizza & fries, which both aren't very healthy options. I googled it, and whey proteine often comes up, but is that really healthy? I've got no idea. Fish is also good, but really expensive. The other three usually mentioned are nuts/avocado/milk, but I wonder if anyone else knows any other foods? In particular with unsaturated fats.
Also, often, I'm just not that hungry. So what do I do if I'm not hungry at all? Force myself to eat?
Just thought that maybe, I need to count calories? When people try to lose weight, they count calories, so maybe I should count them as well & then chose the ones that have the most calories to gain weight faster.. or does it not work that way?
Also, anyone knows a good diet for hypoglycemia? I have looked online a little but somehow ended up at a carb-free diet which isn't something I'm looking for.
This turned out to be a lot of questions I hope someone has some tips/advice and I'm just going to keep posting my own research in case someone else has the same problem some time.
All the best, M
