A long recovery ahead?
Don’t fall short on nutrition
With any illness or surgery, your body needs more nutrition than usual to help with your healing and overall recovery. Unfortunately, it’s often during those times when you really need to eat well that you just can’t.
You may be too exhausted to cook meals let alone go grocery shopping. Food may taste or smell different, or make you nauseous. Your body may not be able to utilize nutrients like it once did. But being low on nutrition may put you at a higher risk for infections and complications — and it could take you longer to recover.
Adding Ensure® to your diet is a convenient way to help you get those much-needed nutrients. It can be used as a snack, a dessert, in recipes, or as a meal replacement in appropriate amounts. If involuntary weight loss is a problem, as it often is during an illness, consider Ensure® Plus Calories, which provides 355 calories and 14 g of protein per bottle.
No matter what kind of condition you’re coping with, good nutrition is essential to optimize healing. Remember — each mouthful counts during an illness or recovery. Adding Ensure® to your diet can help you get the most out of every mouthful.
