    Do you have a SCI? Most people have problems taking off weight, not so much putting it on. It is important that you don't just put on fat, but muscle as well. Eating more carbs and fats can help put on weight, but it may not be muscle; exercise is also needed to build muscle mass. Protein can also be converted into fat if you get most of your calories that way.

    You will gain weight if you eat more calories than you burn. What is your level of injury? What is your current weight? How tall are you? What do you usually eat in a day now? Rarely are supplements needed. Instead I would recommend you see a good clinical dietitian (RD) who can help you look at a reasonable goal for your weight, and help you identify ways to achieve that.

    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.
