My husband has been at survival school and just got back (well, he's coming home tomorrow night but he just got out of the field today). He lost 15 pounds in the field, which isn't great for him because he was already a smallish guy with not a lot of body fat - his normal is 170 pounds at 6 feet tall.
Right now his stomach is pretty shrunken so he can't eat a lot. Tonight he plans to have a bit of salmon, veggies, rice, and salad for dinner with maybe a breadstick (the guys are going out to Olive Garden). Sounds good to me... I told him to ask for butter to put on his fish and veggies since fat is calorie-dense.
Once he's home again, how can I help him gain back the weight in a way that's healthy? Obviously I could just cram him full of cake and bread, but I don't want to do that to him.
Ideas? Thanks in advance.
