Make Protein Shakes with whey protein powder,A banana, Powdered Green Drink, and some stevia.... Try with and without green drink...   Make Smoothies with anti cancer fruit like strawberries, pineapple, raspberries, blueberries, banana and whatever else you want. A Bullet machine is great.

Then there is the Juicing with carrots and brocolli etc.....look up Cancer and Juicing....Ensure is Poison disgused as food. Barry

My husband had throat cancer, so a liquid suppliment was his first go-to nurishment.  He prefers Boost to the Ensure, and the nice thing is, our local Cancer Society in Northern Indiana provides this suppliment at their cost. MUCH cheaper than buying at a drugstore or even at Walmart. 

Our doctor didn't say anything negative about this suppliment, but if you want to have more control over what goes into your body, the other poster who made the suggestion of the whey powder + banana and whatever else is good for you, can be done.  Yogurt, berries, ice cream, Kefur (sp) are all great things to include in a sweet shake.  We don't do the green drinks yet, but if you think you would be, go for it.  Make sure you have a good blender.

Med Pass 2.0 has 480 calories per 8oz which is good to keep on weight.  Also, Jevity 1.2 is what my hubby is taking now.
