Please consult your doctor for a nutritionist referral. “Fast” Weight gain/loss has consequences and while frustrating I urge you to have patience and take a healthy path.

Tons of protein like that can make you lose weight. Contact a dietician (your local grocery store may have someone). You need solid food.
