I have a few suggestions that I hope may help you. Walnuts (18 gm fat per 1/4 cup) Bacon and hard boiled eggs with glass of whole milk 1/2 of a frozen cheeseburger, handful of potatoe chips and glass of milk (>20 gms easily) When I absolutely cannot even think about eating, I measure 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil in shot glass and take it with a glass of cold milk. Jimmy Dean Sausage Sandwich (these sandwiches are >20 gms of fat) and milk Hot dog with melted cheese in hot dog bun w/whole milk Cream of Celery Soup - soothes stomach and 1 cup has ample fat gm (I drink a cup of milk with it anyway though) One cup of whole milk has 9 gm of fat in it and just to make sure I feel I am getting the whole 20 gms, you can tell I drink a lot of milk.View Thread
I am just in my second week of the triple therapy. My directions on how to use the Incivek say to eat the 20 gm of fat within 30 minutes of taking your dose. I guess I interpreted that to mean to eat the 20 gm of fat after taking the dose.
Does it matter if you eat the 20 gm before taking the Incivek or if you eat the 20 gm after taking the Incivek?
I am my doctor's first patient on this medicine and he didn't get into this detail.
