Hello boiled eggs, peanut butter on celery, tuna (salad): mayo, onion, pickles. Legumes (beans) not to expensive (dried) boil till done. Look up easy cheap high fiber protein meals on internet.
Still have to watch the weight gain. Try to make a lot of little snacks for in between meals so they don’t get too hungry at one time.

I know what you mean. He’s hungry and eats sometimes until he throw up. Drinks like that too. It’s hard to manage. My son will pace, open and closed the refrigerator until I’m sure it’s going to lose the suction on the door frames.

Are there food pantries where you live? Sometimes one of my friends gets free meals from Church.

Hello, Since we moved towards a pre-diabetic low carb / high protein and fat diet (ketogenic), the carb-cravings and intense hunger diminished. To support the budget, in Australia, we eat turkey, kangaroo and lots of tinned tuna. We buy meats like chicken, pork, lamb and beef only when on sale (or close to their use-by date. Bulk cook and freeze. That way, my son (the ASD, ADHD, Schizophrenia member) has meals he can pull out of the freezer, microwave and eat. He lives off tins of tuna, rice and salad for lunch. Nuts, carrots, celery, cheese and fruit are his snacks. Water is his preferred beverage. However, while he still eats junk-food (Maccas, KFC) he isn’t ballooning out or binging. It is a balancing act, one we all share.
