So after thinking about it, I realized I needed to eat to support growth, fat-be-damned. It's a hard decision to make, as I still feel really ambivalent about my weight going up - especially when I see another quarter-inch on my waist confirming that it's going to fat. At any rate, the things that I changed this week was adding a protein shake into the diet every day, rocketing my protein to what seems an absurd 240g/day, and ice cream for dessert on some nights. It doesn't seem to be having the effect described on the CF boards for me, but I don't know if that's the protein shake or the ice cream (or both). Two pounds in a week is too much - I only want one, since I suspect more than that is just fat.

Looking Forward
I don't really trust (or like) this protein powder, but it seems to be finally adding some weight. So I'll give this another week and see what happens (this weekend will be a bit of a wrench, but oh well). I don't think I'll buy more ice cream after this container runs out, at least not for a while. If I can fine-tune this to a pound a week, then I'll be happy. Maybe 220g protein/day is the sweet spot?
