I like Luna bars. I take one along in my purse when I know I'm going to be out all day. Very filling.

My DH, who is diabetic, sometimes eats a Power Bar for lunch. Don't know who makes them but they are called Power Bars..... high in protein and carbs. You also may want to see if he'll drink an Ensure once or twice a day. I know they were Godsends for my mom when she was having trouble eating and getting good nutrition.

I used to make these power bars when I spent 12+ hours in a truck, they taste good, easy to make and nutritious

recipe makes 12 barsChange Servings
1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup wheat and barley nugget cereal (e.g. Grape-Nuts™)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 beaten egg
1/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup honey
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/4 cup unsalted sunflower seeds
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 (7 ounce) bag chopped dried mixed fruit

Directions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line a 9 inch square baking pan with aluminum foil. Spray the foil with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, stir together the oats, flour, cereal, and cinnamon. Add the egg, applesauce, honey, brown sugar, and oil. Mix well. Stir in the sunflower seeds, walnuts, and dried fruit. Spread mixture evenly in the prepared pan.
Bake 30 minutes, or until firm and lightly browned around the edges. Let cool. Use the foil to lift from the pan. Cut into bars or squares, and store in the refrigerator.

After my last orthodontic surgery, I drank Ensure's ~2 times a day b/c I was physically unable to open my mouth to eat. They were filling w/o being "too much"

Chocolate was my favorite flavor --- especially chilled.

They also sell protein powder that you can add to the things he does eat or drink. My mother hated milk and refused to drink ensure so we use to mix in a tablespoon here or there in juice or whatever. Also have they talked about giving him anything to increase his appetite/ desire to eat? My mother went to the Dana Farber in Boston for treatment and they perscribed her this medicine that was originally given to patients with AIDs to increase appetite and weight gain. Its now being used by many people with cancer. It worked wonders for my mother. Here is the link:
Megace® ES: megestrol acetate 625mg/5mL oral suspension

My husband is into body building and has some simple bars he makes for his bulking cycles. I believe it's:

3c oatmeal
1c peanut butter
3/4 cup honey
1/2-1 scoop whey protein (optional)
raisins (optional)

Basically just put all of that in a big pot on med heat and stir til it's combined and then pack into a pan and put in fridge. It packs a good amount of calories in so it's good for someone who doesn't want to eat a lot, along with good fats (commercial protein bars usually have a lot of saturated fat) and if you can add some whey protein that's even better. We use optimum nutrition whey protein (tastes the best out of what we've tried).

Yes, however, it can cause diarrhea, and he does not need help with that, we go from not being able to go,to going all the time.
