Subject: Re: weight and whipping cream?

<someone mentioned milk and whipping cream which
is better for weight gain? what kind of
whipping cream? and won't it hurt them in the long
run? <

I add a dollop of whipping cream to Champ's (renal
failure) soup each feeding. Soup is all he eats
and we have been able to pretty much maintain his
weight for several months. I haven't seen any
side effects from the whipping cream. I don't
think the brand matters. There is regular
whipping cream and heavy whipping cream. I don't
think there is a huge amount of difference
calorie-wise. I just buy whatever is at the
grocery store with the latest expiration date. An
8 oz. container lasts me several weeks.
