What foods, supplements, and diets are best to counteract weight gain due to memory loss from a TBI?

During my period of little memory, I ate eccessively and gained weight that seems not to come off despite multiple different strategies I've tried.  I'm now very interested in what specific options will work best!

After you got your Brain Injury has anyone found out that you do not have appetite?

Like to the point you don’t eat most of the time?

I my case... My TBI shut off my ability to eat. So I had a feeding tube for almost 7mos. And I lost a massive amount of weight. I’m small to begin with. But I went for 125 to maybe 65 lbs. It’s not healthy. So here I am 7 years post Tbi.... I gain all the weight back and just in the last 6 months I started losing it again. I’m down to 107 lbs and I have NO desire to eat. I have to force myself to eat.

Any suggestion on what could boost up my appetite and help me gain weight. I do not like looking this skinny.

Thank u, everyone for your comments.
