    Tam, my mother passed due to leukemia. I saw her drastic weight loss. She had so much chemo. I researched the foods that "beat" cancer. But here's the thing. She was never hungry. The people that replied to you are right. I was lucky if I got my mom to drink 3 ensures in a day. I remember going to Red Lobster and she ordered shrimp cocktail. She only had 2 shrimp and she was full. I was heart broken. I think you should try to motivate your dad to eat. But at least while he is in treatment, focus on getting him to eat whatever he wants. I don't think it's wrong to encourage him to eat more. Just don't try to get him to change which foods he prefers.

    This thread is from mid 2015. Please take note of last post dates to a thread. Responding to older threads that have been dormant "bumps" them to the top so the recent, active ones are not readily seen on the top of a thread page.

    For this reason, I am closing the thread to avoid confusion.
