I'm Type 2. How Can I Gain Weight/increase Body Size?

I'm Type 2. How Can I Gain Weight/increase Body Size?

During the course of 2017 lost 30kg and just could not manage to gain back 1kg since. How can I get my weight/body size up again a few kg's?

I can relate to this. I weighed only 100 pounds last year and worried I looked like a person with an eating disorder or worse cancer when neither was true. Over the last year I was able to gain 10 pounds but it wasn't easy. I drank protein shakes plus ate all my regular meals and snacks. I needed to gain weight to prove to myself that it wasn't some other issue being missed. I have been a diabetic for over 40 years and do not take insulin...yet but do take meds.

My husband has had the same problem. So frustrating. Lots of info out there to help lose weight, none to gain. We see an Endocrinologist in a couple of weeks. Hope he can offer some suggestions. Right now my husband is exercising at the gym and we have started a low carb, low sugar whey protein smoothie in the morning. Nice to know we are not alone in this weight gain fight.
