Food glorious food....

I am able to taste most foods now, but they taste very bland. I can eat solid foods, but am having a hard time getting enough calories each day. I have lost about 20 lbs since the first week in October. I need to stop losing weight before I start chemo. My doctors would be happy if i gained some weight before then. Today I had a slimfast shake, a few bites of a bean burrito, a bowl of chicken soup and some hot cocoa. I tried fruit juice again, but it still hurts my throat. I know that isn't nearly enough calories, but I really couldn't do more today. I am still taking anti-nausea meds, which help, but I am still not getting enough calories. I wish ice cream were more appealing to me right now, but it's just not.
