Nutritional Supplements

Working to keep your calorie and nutrition intake high usually requires creativity and problem-solving. The more options you have, the more successful you are likely to be. For some women, high calorie, high protein drinks as snacks, or as mealtime beverages work well. Homemade shakes and protein-enriched smoothies are wonderful. Commercially available products are another option that are convenient and portable for times when you are away from home. Below is a short list of several products and their nutrient profile. Check with your doctor about nutritional supplements in your diet. There may be others, not listed here, which are most suitable for your specific needs.
