So I'm confused... I desperately need to gain weight, and I should be happy about this but I'm getting a bit concerned over why/how I'm suddenly gaining weight on so few calories.
Several weeks ago, I was losing weight on 1,500 calories a day (not trying to lose though). I tried to increase it, and managed to get up to 1,700 calories a day and instantly began gaining weight at about 1.5lb/week. But in the past week I've not been tolerating as much (I'm so full and nauseous I feel like I just ate a thanksgiving feast all the time) and have been averaging around 1,600 calories a day. Suddenly, I'm gaining .5lb a day and have continued this for six days (my doctor has me take my dry weight every morning). I'm strictly tube fed through my small intestine and my fluid/formula intake is consistent so I know I'm getting in what I think. The only thing that has changed is that my activity has slightly increased.
Should I be concerned? Any ideas why I'm suddenly gaining weight so fast? Will the weight gain likely slow down? Thanks!
