My father (in his 80s) has just finished a series of joint-related surgeries. His appetite has been diminishing for years, but between the surgeries and some problems with his meds -- now resolved -- he was nauseated for a period and his weight plummeted. He's got his appetite back, more or less, but we can't seem to put weight back on. YANOD, but his doctor's advice is appetite and med-related, and we'd like to know what foods (or meals?) would be best for sustained, healthy weight gain. Thank you!

My question is why this might be, whether it is just me, and what I can do, if anything, to improve my sense of "taste".* [more inside]
