Anybody know of any weight gain shakes I could use to add weight. Something I could buy like at a GNC or Walmart. Or something I can just add between meals that has a ton of calories.

Thanks!!!

Although not officially intolerent to dairy and peanuts, I do avoid because sometimes I think I am intolerent. I got most of my weight back with milkshakes and MM peanuts, but was looking for a different alternative, may go with Hersheys Chocolate Bars.

Thanks

Kirk you may want to try ScandiShake from Axcan Pharma. You can get a free sample by calling 1-800-472-2634. The shakes are 600 calories when mixed with 8 oz. of whole milk and are available in vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. They also carry a lactose free or sugar free version for anyone who has other issues. I was using Ensure Plus which is 350 calories but Scandishake is much higher in calories. The website is www.axcan.com. They carry additional weight gain products that may be of interest to you. Good luck.

I am Gluten-free Casein-free and I have had some success with a combination of Rose Acre Farm dried egg whites (cage free!) mixed with Almond Breeze Chocolate (Sweetened with evaporated cane juice) Almond Milk.

1 tablespoon of the egg white powder is 50 calories and 11 grams of protein.

4oz of almond milk is 60 calories and 1 gram of protein.

If you call that a "serving" you get 110 calories per serving and 12g of protein per 4oz of shake. Not much in itself but it scales up quite nicely.

I typically will scale this up 3-5 times after a workout to get between 330-550 calories and 36-60 grams of protein. Not bad for 12-20oz of beverage which tastes really good and is easy to drink.

I've found this to be the best (and most natural) solution for me. If you can't deal with almond milk (I like it better than soy/rice) you could choose soy/rice milk instead.

You can buy the egg whites online at Rose Acre Farms website. You can buy the Almond Breeze at Trader Joe's or online at Almond Breeze's website. I have no affiliation with either.

Hope that helps!

avocado and coconut milk are other good ingredients to add to your regular foods (and can be used in many ways).

You could try Extreme XXL they are pre made shakes by American Body Buidling 980 calories each. My son uses them without a problem. They are gluten free but are whey protein so it does have dairy.

    • So I'm new to all of this. I don't really have stomach issues other than occasional heartburn. Went to a gastro Dr and she took some blood samples. There's a test where the range is 0-19. I have no idea what it is called but mine was 62. She recommended an endoscopy and my anxiety has completely taken over. I'm terrified. I know nothing about this other than what came up when I googled celiac. What came up was a lot of scary this is what can happen to you results. I'm beyond afraid and do t know what to do. Reaching out for help. 
    • You have multiple problems, and may have several different diagnoses. I needed sinus surgery, and was referred to a teaching hospital University of Iowa. I had to jump through all of the surgeon's hoops by seeing specialists in other related departments. He told me, "Sometimes we think we are allergic to foods and we are not."  After being tested negative for those offensive foods, I figured out that I have histamine sensitivity to these foods. An appointment with the specialist in the Allergy and Immunology Dept confirmed it. I was told to eat a low histamine diet, and to avoid those foods that had been offensive, to keep a  food diary, and occasionally to challenge myself with a food I had not been able to eat. My father was diagnosed celiac from an intestinal biopsy. I had stopped eating wheat and oats, because they made me itch, etc. Other offensive foods to me are tomatoes, raspberries, strawberries, egg, banana, cantaloupe, mushroom, canned or not fresh fish. I have read to eat fresh food. Avoid bruised fruit. Even aged meat contains histamine. There are foods that contain histamine and foods that cause the release of histamine. No leftovers better. I don't eat dairy, because I have a reaction to yogurt. Any foods that are fermented contain histamine. Apples make me cough. It isn't fun eating this way, but until a solution is discovered, I must follow this low histamine diet. I am keeping a food diary. Vary your diet. Be positive. Be proactive. By the way, an oral histamine doesn't help. I don't know what does, but I take one capsule of Diamine oxidase (DAO) before eating, to tie up the histamine before it reaches my gut. You may want to read up on histamine sensitivity and a low histamine diet. Please ask for a referral to a large teaching hospital specialist. May I suggest you begin with Endocrinology Dept. They  will refer you to their other specialists concerning your symptoms. However, you will have your endocrinologist as your home specialist. He will coordinate your care. 
    • Thanks for the welcome. Endoscopy results came in the morning confirming Celiac, but they also found cells called Eosinophils which apparently has something to do with white blood cells. They want to do another scope in 8 weeks to see if they're still there.
    • Oh. Please get a referral to a large teaching hospital. The specialists there will give you answers.  Take care.
