She also get 3 snacks a day along with her 3 meals a day. She eats! Yet she loses weight. I was subsidizing her intake with about 1400 calories a day using Ensure Plus but that caused massive diarrhea which lead to dehydration. Part of the reason for the weight loss is her excessive pacing and the energy she burns constantly moving. Part of it is probably her digestive inability to process all that goes in. Her tendency to have diarrhea leads us to that conclusion. So far we have not found a solution for either. I just keep taking her additional foods she loves along with milkshakes, chocolate, and other high calorie snacks

Love, deb
