I know it is a struggle to gain weight for some as well as losing it for most.
Have you tried making a smoothie with coconut milk, with your protein powder, and add gound flax seeds (or any ground nut), and Chia seeds (for texture)?
I don't know what your situation is, but it is possible to add healthy calories in your day...

I am guessing that you are aware of supplements for "bulking up". They have the right mix of carbs/protein. I am also on a high protein seeker, and have been consuming mostly grilled chicken/beef and i buy fish once in a while (the local ranch-market here will clean it and fry it for me right there). You also get high protein from several vegetarian diets - beans, legumes, lentils etc. Make sure you read about nutrition, and figure your BMR/caloric requirements (which is what i did).

Thanks Adamevegod; I'm hopeful that I've built up enough resistance to ward off any relapses. Fingers crossed! :)
