I have a student who does intensive exercise and body-building. His regiment requires him to consume an enormous number of calories – between 5,000 and 7,000 per day. He says that obtaining these calories by eating many regular meals is not feasible, and to meet the needs of athletes there are special “calorie shakes” that athletes drink during the day. The problem is that he has not found such a supplement with a Hechsher (except for some that are high in soy, which he cannot tolerate). Can you provide us with some guidance?


All such products require a reliable hashgachah. I am not aware of the particular ones available, and you may want to try  www.koshervitamins.com as they may have something suitable.
