 So that is it. I am starting to feel normal again. I even have less of the nerve issues in my hands now. I didn't think things like that would ever go back to normal. But I can feel them normalizing. The word for me is beginning to be…NORMAL. ​ 4.5 years on the Marshall, (was on one antibiotic protocol or another since July of 2005). ​ So that is it.

 +====  Alayne'​s strategy ====
 + 
 +The trick is to have as many kinds of foods around as possible because when one's appetite is down, having just one thing to choose from generally doesn'​t work. I went through years of having little or no appetite myself, so understand the problem pretty well myself - it's very frustrating! ​
 +
 +Here's some of what Jack manages to choke down and hasn't lost anymore weight on:
 +
 +Breakfasts - 2 slices of whole grain toast or rolls with peanut butter/​almond butter with agave nectar (like honey) and high fat cheese.
 +
 +Mixed whole grain hot cereals with half & half, dried or whatever kinds of fruits you have and nuts.
 +
 +Smoothies - Frozen and unfrozen fruits (lots of vitamins). He also adds almonds or some softer nuts to the blenderized drink. Always add some protein to the mix as well. We like to make an eggwhite omelet to accompany the smoothie (3-5 eggwhites with garlic, grated cheese, green onions, tomatoes…or whatever else is in the fridge).
 +
 +Other meals - sandwiches with guacamole and whole milk cheese or chicken or both. We also use vegenaise which is a great substitute for mayo (tastes like the real thing).
 +
 +Brown rice, wild rice, basmati rice pilafs with quick cooked organic beef or lamb stew with lots of veggies and spices.
 +
 +Buffalo, beef, or lamb burgers (spiced with various herbs and onion, garlic, etc.) on whole grain rolls or just with veggies.
 +
 +Grill a marinated beef or buffalo steak and have on hand for snacks and meals.
 +
 +Roast a chicken once or twice a week and have on hand for snacks and meals. We make a great chicken salad with the vegenaise, pickles, onions, and whatever else we like. Spread on crackers, bread, or use in salads lettuces.
 +
 +Whole fat cheese on crackers (try different types of cheeses and crackers for variation)
 +
 +Apples and celery with peanut butter or almond butter. Cashew butter'​s also great.
 +
 +Jacks makes almond milk and cashew yogurt which are nice and high in calories. If you're interested, can give you the recipes. Kind of a pain to make though.
 +
 +Lots of sugar free dark chocolate.
 +
 +Mixed nuts (I know you're heartily sick of them…there are ways to flavor them differently so they'​re a tad more interesting. Although it's not known whether or not pumpkin and sunflower seeds have Vit D, Jacks eats them on many things. His 25-D dropped to <5, so I think they probably have little D, if any.
 +
 +Tortilla chips with salsas and guacamole.
