Liver cancer, weight loss, gas. High calorie vegetarian food?

My relative is suffering from Liver cancer and is undergoing Chemo for about 3 months. He has lost about 18 lbs in 3 months and a constant challenge is to provide him foods that are high in calories to give him energy and low in sugar (for cancer) that is vegetarian as well. Also as the problematic area is liver, it has been very difficult due to gas. We have been many small meals, but not making much dent in weight management . Please help suggest high calorie vegetarian foods that would be easy on liver and not harmful for cancer. Thanks.

Understand that no diet is harmful for cancer. i dont understand why low sugar diet is being given when he is not diabetic. Sugar has nothing to do with cancer, it is restricted only in diabetics. If he not a diabetic best think would be to give plenty of home made fruit juices with milk and glucose added to it. Glucose is very good for liver and helps in rejuvenate. Avoid fatty foods and oil as they are difficult to digest. Porridge with jaggery and milk shakes help him a lot
